Kruska was last seen hitchhiking in Los Angeles, California on October 10, 1978, after he left his home in Canyon Country. A friend dropped him off at Interstate 5. He carrying a khaki-colored backpack at the time of his disappearance. He has never been heard from again.
Kruska is a former football player at Saugus High School. He had been keeping bad company, drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana, but at the time of his disappearance he was trying to straighten out his life and hoped to join the federal Job Corps. On the day of Kruska's disappearance, he found out he had a different father than his siblings, and became extremely upset and left home. His family initially assumed he had left of his own accord and would return, but they became concerned after months passed without his making contact with them. Kruska's loved ones reported him missing in February 1979, four months after he was last seen.
Authorities believe Kruska may be deceased, but little evidence is available in his case.
