Who is Kristal?
Kristal Anne Reisinger, 29, is an Arizona native, constantly described by her friends and family as a highly intuitive and positive person. Due to a difficult home life, Kristal became a ward of the state and relocated to Denver to live with her aunt. When they had a falling out, Kristal was left with limited options. It was then that the Ervin’s took Kristal into their home, their son being a close friend of hers.
Rodney and Debbie Ervin provided for Kristal as if she was one of their own children, becoming parental figures in Kristal’s life. She moved into their furnished basement, they put her through college, and they became proud grandparents to Kristal’s 5 year-old daughter, Kasha.
In 2015, Kristal moved 200 miles Southwest of Denver to the small town of Crestone, in search of religious enlightenment. With a population of about 150 in the town proper, Crestone is known as the “New Age Religious” capital of the world, drawing thousands of “truth seekers” to the area. Complete with her meditation practice, brightly colored hair and dreadlocks, Kristal fit right into the community.
On July 13, 2016, Kristal reportedly disappeared from a full moon drum circle. She has not been seen since. After 2 years with no arrests, Saguache County Sheriff’s Office is no longer treating Kristal’s disappearance as a missing persons case, but rather suspected foul play.
One of the many consequences of Kristal’s disappearance is that her 5-year-old daughter, Akasha (“Kasha”), is now financially supported by only one parent. Our hope is to provide something positive for Kasha by offering some financial assurance for her future. Of course, nothing can replace the presence of Kasha’s mother, but we’d like to do what we can to help. Whether it be for college, living costs, or healthcare, 100% of these donations will go directly to a trust for Kasha.
