Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Christopher was last seen in Eagan on April 20, 1990. Kerze stayed home from school sick with the flu on April 20, 1990. Sometime during the day he decided to head north to where his grandparents grew up near Grand Rapids. When his parents returned home later in the day, the family's blue Dodge Caravan was gone. Christopher had left a note. He said he'd be back by 6 p.m. He never returned.
The following day a letter arrived at the Kerze home. It was a suicide note written by their missing son.
A week later, authorities found the Caravan about 20 miles north of Grand Rapids in an area near the George Washington State Forest and the Chippewa National Forest. A search of the area failed to turn up any sign of the teen or the 20 gauge shotgun Kerze had with him at the time he went missing.
