  • Details of Disappearance
    Kristin Diede and Robert Anderson were last seen on their way to a farm north of Wishek during the late afternoon hours on August 15, 1993. They were heading for Kristin's husbandís parentís farm to pick up her son and daughter, and head back to Minnesota, where they lived. Kristin and Robert planned a quick trip with her kids to Wishek North Dakota, her hometown. Kristin had called friends in Minnesota stating she was having trouble getting her kids back. Kristin and Robert even made a stop at the local police department to speak with a State Trooper about certain court orders and their validity in the state of North Dakota.

    The vehicle in which they were reportedly riding was reported abandoned in Aberdeen, SD on August 20, 1993. Although the vehicle was not reported as abandoned until August 20th 1993, the vehicle may have been observed at that location as early as August 16th by rail road employees.

    The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation considers Diede and Anderson to be homicide victims, but few details have been released. No arrests have ever been made in this case.

    Kristin and Robert had met sometime in the Spring of 1993. At the time Kristin was being counseled by the Cornerstone domestic violence program in Bloomington, MN, and her ex-husband had recently been charged and convicted of assaulting her. Kristin and her husband were separated but not yet divorced. Robert was divorced, and had two children.
