MUKILTEO, Wash. – Sheriff’s Office detectives and search and rescue units are conducting a missing persons investigation for 16 year-old Tyler Christensen who was last seen late yesterday.  Christensen has no runaway history and his disappearance is considered suspicious because he has strong ties to his family and church.

Christensen was last seen yesterday around 6:30 p.m. in the Beverly Park area wearing a blue t-shirt and blue shorts.  He had left his home on foot to attend a youth group meeting at a church in the 4700 block of 116th St SW.  Christensen did not arrive at the church, nor did he return home.  His family reported him missing around 3:15 this morning.

Christensen is 5'11" and 145 lbs with blue eyes and light brown hair in a buzz cut.

Anyone who has information about this investigation or knows of Christensen's whereabouts should call 911 or the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tipline at 425-388-3845.
