We know Kristofer went to work the morning of January 25th in Maple Ridge and then the Good Life Gym in Burnaby later that same day. 

·        The last time we believe Kristofer used his visa/bankcard was at a grocery store in Coquitlam on January 26th around 1pm.  

·        His car was first spotted on Elk Thurston Trail near Chilliwack by a police officer who happened to be there on January 27th. Picture taken that night indicate the car was broken into there because there was glass on the ground. .
