Originally from Richmond, VA, Ian Burnett, 22, was traveling to NYC to visit some friends on December 27, 2011 right before he went missing. Ian was staying at an apartment on 139th St. and Riverside Avenue, and was believed to last be seen on December 30, 2011. Ian’s father, Mike Burnet, stated his last contact with his son was via text message on December 27. Ian’s last known contact was with his roommate on December 30 around 4pm, right before he went missing.
Authorities reported that Ian had left his cell phone before he disappeared, so he had no way of contacting friends or family after December 30. It is believed that Ian does have his ID and credit card on his person, although no transactions have been made.
