Christian Muse disappeared at the age of 19 on July 15th, 2012. He was last seen in the Glass Manor area of Oxon Hill, Maryland. Christian never returned home, and he has never been seen or heard from again. Christian’s family does not believe that he left on his own accord. Shortly before his disappearance, Christian had finished courses to begin working as a HVAC technician. It appeared that Christian was building towards his future, however according to his father Michael Muse, Christian was experimenting with drugs as well. Due to this, Michael initially believed his son might have been suffering from memory loss. He explained, “just like a lot of teenagers [Christian] was experimenting with drugs and to what degree I don’t know. I know sometimes depending on the situation or the type of drug [memory loss] could happen.”
As time passed, Michael’s theory seemed less and less likely. Then, 9 months after Christian’s disappearance, Michael was contacted by a DC Police detective who was investigating a separate case that might be linked to Christian. In a time before Christian vanished, he was reportedly exploited by a group of adults who ran a child trafficking ring. This means that Christian likely had information about said adults that could incriminate them. Michael told reporters, “a DC detective who said he was working in conjunction with the FBI was questioning me, trying to find Christian and another group of boys to use as witnesses to solidify their case against these adults , and what’s strange and scary is that he couldn’t find any of these boys.” After this point, Christian’s family began to believe that something sinister happened to him.
Despite these suspicious circumstances, Christian’s disappearance did not receive any media attention until summer 2013, over a year after he vanished. Christian’s family is still holding out hope that he will one day return home. Michael has opened up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising reward money for anybody with information that could bring Christian home. If you are interested in donating, please visit the page here.
