Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case as of May 2020)


Gustafson was last seen at approximately 6:55 a.m. on October 11, 2006, in the Medicine Bow National Forest, eight miles south of Arlington, Wyoming. He was at the road junction of 111 and 129 in Carbon County. He was carrying a Winchester 30-06 rifle with a green camouflage-print stock and a blue metal barrel with 3X9 scope. He also had a map, global positioning satellite (GPS) device, compass, shells, lunch, water and a knife.
Gustafson had been elk hunting with family members when they separated and went in different directions. He was to return to camp that evening but never arrived. His relatives fired three shots in the air when they realized he was missing and heard three shots fired in return, but they could not locate Gustafson and there has been no indication of his whereabouts since then. He had gotten lost the day before his disappearance, but was found by a logger. The temperatures on the night of October 11 dipped into the thirties, and the following few days were snowy.
