    Search underway for missing Houston couple last seen in Austin


    [​IMG]

    Krislyn Gibson and Sidney Taylor haven't been seen since they went to a nightclub in Austin late Friday night.

    HOUSTON (KTRK) --
    Krislyn Gibson was last seen early Saturday morning in Austin. She was with Sidney Taylor. They drove from Houston to Austin on Friday to attend a concert Saturday. Late Friday night they went to a nightclub. That's the last anyone has seen them. Both Austin and Houston police are investigating and Texas Equusearch has more than 20 people searching for them.

    "They went to a club that night and never made it back to the friend's house where they were going to spend the night at, so their clothes and everything is still at their friend's house," said Tim Miller with Equusearch.

    As friends look for the couple, with little on which to go, they do know Taylor's Dodge Charger was found in midtown Houston. And a GPS locator pinged his cell phone near Bear Creek Park.

    "If they would have left they would have called or told somebody," said Calvin Davis, a friend of the couple. "They just wouldn't leave from city to city without letting us know."

    Davis doesn't know what to think.

    "I don't think they drove back, personally. Somebody had to drive them back," he said. "I'm dumbfounded right now. I don't even know where to begin to be honest with you. I'm just hoping everything can come to some type of light where we can find them safe."

    Has anyone been keeping up with this case. It's kinda strange one to me. I don't know what to make of it.

    They weren't a couple, just longtime friends. He's married with four kids and she has one child.

    This makes me ask what were they doing going to a club together? And Overnight?? This "new age" family structure is for the birds. I have no idea what people consider normal these days. I'm not even married... but ( with the exception of an occasional girls night out bday celebration), FH and I don't go clubbing without each other. We certainly don't go out clubbing with people of the opposite sex.

    Maybe they ran away from their families because they are "in love". That's the best case scenario. I hope they haven't been harmed.

    Are we concerned about their lives or judging them on decisions they made?

    Nobody is judging. I just automatically think his wife or her boyfriend may have to have something to do with this ala Snapped or ID channel.

    I don't really watch the news but I keep checking on them to see if they've been located.
    Another article.


    Friends and family of a Texas man and woman are baffled as to what happened to the pair, who went missing after attending a concert in Austin. According to Fox 26 News, the search for them concluded Wednesday night but is expected to begin again on Thursday morning.

    KPRC 2 News reports that friends Sidney Taylor and Krislyn Gibson, both 35, vanished sometime between Saturday, April 2, and Tuesday, April 5, after last being seen together in Austin, according to Houston Police. Authorities indicate that Sidney and Krislyn left Houston on Friday and subsequently arrived in Austin to attend the Urban Music Festival for the entire weekend.

    Late Friday night, the pair went to a local Austin nightclub and have not been seen since. The search effort for Sidney and Krislyn includes both the Austin and Houston Police Departments, as well as Texas Equusearch, which has over 20 people assisting in the quest to the find the couple, reports ABC 13 News.

    Austin authorities initially started the investigation, but Houston law enforcement joined the effort after Sidney’s vehicle, a Dodge Charger, was discovered in midtown Houston, according to ABC 13 News.

    Fox 26 News reports Equusearch was asked to take part in the investigation after a ping from Sidney’s cell phone was found to have come from west Harris County. ABC 13 News reports a GPS locator indicated the ping came from near Bear Creek Park in Houston.

    According to ABC 13 News, Tim Miller with Equusearch said regarding the missing friends:

    “They went to a club that night and never made it back to the friend’s house where they were going to spend the night at, so their clothes and everything is still at their friend’s house.”

    KPRC 2 News reports that the two left Sidney’s cousin’s home to head to a nightclub.

    Miller told Fox 26 News, “They’ve got them on surveillance leaving this club, and were going to spend the night at a friend’s house ten minutes away…”

    One friend, Calvin Davis, told Fox 26 News, “Something had to be foul play somewhere.” Davis stated that he and Sidney had roomed together in college for two years and that Krislyn was part of their group of friends. According to Davis, Sidney and Krislyn had a platonic relationship and were not romantically involved, reports Fox 26 News.

    Davis also said that Krislyn is a single mother of one son, while Sidney is married with four children, so he typically stays in frequent contact with his family, as well as his friends, according to Fox 26 News. Davis further added:

    “It has just been too long, and he just loves us too much to make us worry like that… It’s all kind of surreal, because they were doing things all the right way. To just come up missing is something that has us all puzzled.”

    According to KPRC 2 News, Davis noted that Sidney is a loving husband and father, and not making contact with anyone is “…definitely out of character.” He said, “This is not something he would do… I called and texted him. His phone was dead and he didn’t reply. That’s definitely not him.”

    Davis spoke with ABC 13 News as well regarding Sidney’s vehicle being found back in Houston, saying:

    “I don’t think they drove back, personally. Somebody had to drive them back… I’m dumbfounded right now. I don’t even know where to begin to be honest with you. I’m just hoping everything can come to some type of light where we can find them safe.”

    Another friend, Melody Moore, told KPRC 2 News regarding Krislyn, “Something is not right. She would never leave her baby. Never.”

    Authorities are asking for the public’s assistance in their search for Sidney and Krislyn. Anyone with information is asked to call the Houston Police Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

    I was thinking more so that one of the missing pair got the wrong idea about just being friends. It is just a strange case with not many details.

    Last I read is they are holding a vigil but there aren't many leads. They didn't search in Austin.

    If he's married then the headline is misleading and should be corrected! "Two longtime friends disappear after a night of partying!"

    Anyway-hope they're found soon!

    I can only speak for myself: Both. Is both not allowed?

    Are "we" concerned about their lives or are we judging others for expressing their opinions? Both, right? I think both is allowed.

    This is odd, not much even happens in Austin. The fact that his car and cell phone have surfaced is definitely suspect. I've seen this play out both ways, dead or just making a bad decision to be on the run (for love, lust, whatever). I hope that they are both okay, even though the situation sounds scandalous, no one should lose their life.

    no. It's not.

    the new article posted gave more details. It appears his wife knew they were going to the concert together. Since they were college friends and planned to stay at other mutual friends house it seems innocent.

    It seems odd that they would let everyone know their plans if they intended to run away together.

    I wonder if people would react differently if both missing persons were of the same sex

    It may be innocent. It may not be. It's still very unusual TO ME. Something in the milk just doesn't seem clean.

    My husband wouldn't be going on an overnight trip with a single mom.

    Anyway, I hope that all is well, and that they are ok. Children do not deserve to lose their parents.

    Stating that something doesn't seem right isn't negatively judging them, it's noticing that something is awry. Married men don't go to concerts with friends of the opposite sex and then spend the night with that person at another friend's house. There's all kinds of wrong with this story. Maybe it has something to do with their disappearance? I wonder where the wife was.

    Um no, not like this.

    Who is taking care of her child while they are traveling- presumably his wife is taking care of his four children. No other friends/relatives were available to go on this trip? Why were they going to a nightclub - was part of the festival happening there? Did they meet up with trouble there since his car and cell phone were found in two different locations?

    Especially if the "single" woman has a man friend who found out about this. It can play huge part in the disappearances.

    I am well aware of this and sadly I don't believe it will end well. Unfortunate.

    These are very valid questions that I'm sure police are also asking as the answers may give more insight as to what actually happened to these 2 people. Not sure where you are picking up judgement.

    I hope that they are found safe. It's strange how they were staying Austin but the truck was found in Houston.

    This is sad. i hope it's not a love triangle. i remember hearing a story about a jamaican artist who was dating a married woman in nyc and he would visit her pretty regular. they were both married. her husband...followed them one night to a hotel and killed them both. he told wife he had business in nyc to explain his frequent travel. that was a few years back.

    I hope this isn't the case here.

    Very strange. I hope that they're found safe and sound and haven't been worrying their family unnecessarily.

    She'll be found, she has a lot of people who love and care about her. They've raised almost 10k in a few days.
