Title: BRIAN HISTAND MISSING
Post by: Merry on May 21, 2013, 05:21:55 PM
After PhilK made a post about this, I opted to repost it and sticky it.

"Brian Histand was last seen Tuesday may 14th he lives in the glendale peoria area. He has a white station wagon with bmx stickers on the back and may also be seen with a bmx bike. We are very worried about him. If you see him please contact the police!! EVERYONE OUT THERE PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT!!"

If you have ANY information, get in touch with any of the BMX news sites involved, or more directly with the local authorities in Glendale.

Man... So weird, the SW is kinda crazy like that. I could see him hitch hiking if he was walking towards the desert. Hoping for the best!

hey dude... what was your former username? It seems like there's a few funny comments but the majority seem to be Topsey comments.

It's weird that they haven't found him yet.. I hope the dude is alright.

I can't believe Adam won't sticky the post on TCU. Is it really so damn important that kids see some mediocre edit instead of possibly helping to find this guy? I really hope Brian is alright. Even though I've never met the guy, I check all the pages several times a day hoping they found him. They are now accepting donations to help with the search, if anyone is interested. The page is on TCU.

Dang, missing for two weeks now. You would think he would've been found in any condition by now...
Title: Re: BRIAN HISTAND MISSING
Post by: PhilK on May 28, 2013, 02:42:28 AM
The situation down there is extremely serious.  When the donation thing gets squared away I would definitely suggest donating, or helping with the search if you are able to.  I was just down there this weekend and can tell you Brian & and his family/friends need the support.

Who is Brian Histand?

Was he on bikeguide?
Title: Re: BRIAN HISTAND MISSING
Post by: PhilK on May 28, 2013, 04:40:08 PM
The TCU link has a link to some of his videos.  He was on bikeguide and bmxboard although hasn't been on either in a bit.

Seems like the kind of dude who would just hop a freight train or start a life of hitchhiking. I really dont know what to say about this because I dont know him on a personal level.
Title: Re: BRIAN HISTAND MISSING
Post by: PhilK on May 29, 2013, 07:11:48 PM
They are having a large search of the area in which Brian was last seen (South 35th Ave & Dobbins Rd) this Saturday just incase anyone on here is from the area and can help out.  The details are on his Facebook.

ShakeJunt, yeah I hope he's just out traveling, however his car was found with his bike & wallet in it, his keys were found in a field nearby.

Word is he was spotted once or twice, not since the 25th. Last I heard his dad was still down there searching. Another search party going out this weekend. Thanks a bunch to the mods for sticking this. Any little bit helps.

Some updates are on the Brian Histand Missing Person Facebook page... people have seen him and talked to him but he's not himself. Sounds like he is going through some mental health issues or possibly drug issues (not sure if he's into that, just speculating based on his odd behavior).

this video gained brian some notoriety a few years back: http://vimeo.com/20606535
he has also had clips in the last few orchid vids, and the rotten/bone deth dvds.

that last gap is mental.

I really hope they find him soon.
Title: Re: BRIAN HISTAND MISSING
Post by: master on July 11, 2013, 01:03:52 PM
Sadly, no updates. It would seem that either he doesn't want to be found or something happened to him.

seriously discouraged by the lack of attention anyone's paid to this outside of the obvious people (of) his life who haven't given up. i hope he pops up some day. for the sake of those that are constantly saddened by this. i just hope that day comes soon. : (

I'm pretty sure i read somewhere that he was found/showed up somewhere

Post by: Alex. on November 24, 2013, 08:29:59 PM
Yeah, I read that the cops found him a while back but he told them he was fine and didn't need/want any help from them.

If that's the case, no one told the folks who run his missing person facebook.

The cops talked to him and let him go the day he went missing back in May.  There's been some possible sightings of him near Gila Bend and now near Buckeye but nothing 100%.  He has not been found and there's no confirmed sightings since 2 weeks after he went missing, unless you have some information that his family and best friends don't have.

Post by: Alex. on December 11, 2013, 10:36:05 PM
Ahh, okay. Still though, the day he went missing the cops found him and he told them he was fine. I think the guy just wants to get off the grid/not be found.

Hopefully that's the case and nothing bad has happened. You have to think that he'd have be found if something bad were to happen to him, though.

Let me preface this by saying I think Brian is alive.  However that area out there can be quite sketchy, lots of missing people never found.  I was at the location he went missing, if something happened and they didn't want you found, that would be an easy thing to accomplish.

As far as the cops out there letting him go, he was naked praying in the field when they stopped him.  That was at least the second time he was naked in a field that day as other people spoke to Brian earlier.  The cops left him go after talking with his father, a police officer.  So I don't know, maybe a little bit questionable state of mind and a lot of the details don't make any kind of sense.

Hopefully any riders from Phoenix west to San Diego can keep their eyes open.  There have been some various reports, some aren't Brian and some maybe's.

Unfortunately I had a 2nd friend experience a similar mental breakdown not long ago, and unlike Arizona, which is ranked #49 out of all 50 states as far as mental health care is concerned, he is hospitalized & receiving the treatment he needs.

Brian was not himself when he went missing, and was not the type to abandon his family/friends like he has. Those of us who know him are still on the lookout but there have been no signs lately.
