We received an urgent plea yesterday from Tricia Gilbert, Buggy’s mom.

She’s worried sick.  She hopes you will forward and share this information to others via links, Facebook, Twitter, social media, and/or any other avenues as much as possible.  Tricia’s tired, exhausted, and needs the help of others:

MISSING: Our Son, Sterling “Buggy” Gilbert, age 25.

Buggy openingOriginally from Alaska, Sterling was homeless in Springfield, Oregon, for the last 2 years and left on approximately March 1, 2013 on a Greyhound bus to Redding, California.

When he was in Oregon he had been involved with dangerous people who had shot at him and were trying to kill him.  That’s why he fled to California.

My Stepson Sterling Gilbert hasn’t been heard from by family since March 6, 2013.  We know he was homeless and hitchhiking to Arcata, California.  When he contacted family, he was in Redding.  Regardless of anything, Sterling ALWAYS phoned a family member no matter what was going on at least 2-3 times a week.

From Redding, he supposedly met Stephanie and her husband Kris Cosentino who helped him out in Redding and were hitchhiking to Los Angeles.  Sterling and the couple (Stephanie is pregnant) made it to Lodi, California, where he called the family on approximately March 6, 2013.

buggy2We made a Missing Persons Report to Lodi Police, Case # 13-1837 on 3/17/2013.

There may be connection to this Stephanie and Kristopher in Oregon.  We don’t know if they met in Oregon, or Redding.  They may know people in Oregon who wanted to hurt Sterling.  Stephanie may have been known as Stephanie Skinner.  She, according to posts on her Facebook, had a history of meth and her 2 young children were with her family, not her custody.

According to the last known number belonging to Stephanie Cosentino, we called to get information.  They
supposedly got stuck there a few days and then made their
way to Stockton.  Unfortunately they separated in Stockton
when they got bus fare the remaining way.

buggy carSterling was last seen getting into newer white sedan, heading south towards Los Angeles.  The destination for Stephanie and Kris was El Monte or Downey, California.

The last known photo from Springfield, Lane County, Oregon, shows he had died his hair.  So it’s most likely growing out and two tone, or he has had his head shaved with short hair.  He was last seen wearing blue jeans, grey t-shirt, black jacket/or hoody with dirty white tennis shoes.  He had with him a blue beany cap, green tent, and a green floral blanket.

    Thank you, Tricia. You did so much and I’m glad it turned out well. They don’t always do so. Thank Goodness!
