    UPDATE: January 17, 2012
    Police have created a "tip line" at:

    newkenttips@co.newkent.state.va.us
    There is still no additional information.

    ________________

    UPDATE: January 11, 2012
    NYPD has completed a second search of the apartment building in which Ian was staying. Nothing unusual was found. Secondly, the Metrocard that Ian purchased with his credit card was used on the day he disappeared to enter Northbound Train Station Number 1.. Whether this was Ian using it or not, is not yet known. NYPD is collecting the video from the appropriate locations to look for him. Police have indicated that Ian ALLEGEDLY has a history of attempting suicide by taking pills and ingesting alcohol, and therefore it is particularly important that he is found and receives help. IF this information is in fact true, then we need to accelerate our efforts to aid him. His parents were apparently not aware of this. This young man has been an honor student and lived independently and functioned socially extremely well, for years.

    I had no idea until the last couple of days when working on VCU student Ian Burnet's disappearance, how many people are missing. When you can, take a look at

    http://www.lbth.org/ncma/index.php

    This is information and an index of missing adults in the US. There may be someone you know or have seen, who is actually a missing person.


    This morning I had a wonderful and inspiring e-mail from Ian Burnet's mom. Like most really strong mothers, she is thanking people who are helping with trying to disseminate and gather information about where Ian might be. She is working hard and remains positive. Ian's brother Jamie and his father remain in New York looking for him, and giving interviews to television, radio, newspapers and generally keeping this case alive in the minds of New Yorkers.

    To recap what we know as of this date, Ian Hunter Burnet, is a 22 year old man who is 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 160 pounds. He might appear younger than his 22 years. He is very bright. He took a bus to New York City and was staying in Harlem with friends before New Years Day. The last contact Ian had with his parents was on December 30, 2011 when they received a text message.His last communication with his roommate at VCU was that "He wasn't having a particularly good experience in NY". He is believed to have his ID, and one credit card with him, although no charges have been made on it beyond that date.

    If you wish to, you can download pre-made sheets with Ian's picture and information for shop windows, bulletin boards, telephone poles etc.

    I can't get Daniel back to Earth, but it's possible that the Burnets can get their son back to them. Please help this family locate their son. If there is anything you can do to help them avoid a loss, such as the one which occurred to our family, please, do it. Help Ian to go home. Thank you for any help that you can give to this fine family.

    Ian could be in New York, or he could be in New Jersey, as he has relatives in Jersey City. He may also be trying to get home to Virginia, or to VCU. If you see Ian, or someone who looks like him:


    Please contact NYPD either Detective Sanchez or Det. Davis, or Sgt Greene at the 30th Precinct 451 W 151st St. 212-690-8842.

    Ian Burnet
    Missing since 12/30/11
    from New York, NY
    Virginia Commonwealth University student Ian Burnet, 22, left his Richmond, Va. residence on December 26, 2011 to travel by bus to New York City. He had plans to stay the week, have a good time, and ring in the new year with friends. He was last seen at the apartment where he had been staying located on 139th Street and Riverside Drive, along the Hudson River.

    His last known contact with anyone was a text to his roommate at about 4 p.m. on December 30 to say he was planning to step out for the evening. It is unknown where he was going, but she did not think anything seemed out of the ordinary. No one has seen or heard from Burnet since, which is highly unusual behavior for the accomplished college student.

    Ian Burnet is an engineering student on full scholarship at Virginia Commonwealth University with an astonishing 4.4 GPA. He has no history of problems with drugs or alcohol, and he comes from a warm and loving home. His parents last heard from him by text on December 28. Their only wish is to know that he is safe and they are praying for his return.

    NYPD Tracks MetroCard Purchase Of Missing Virginia College Student

    January 12, 2012 at 12:47 pm


    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Cops may have a new lead in the case of a 22-year-old Virginia college student who went missing in Manhattan last month.

    Police have tracked Ian Burnet’s purchase of a MetroCard to the 145th Street station on the northbound 1 line on Dec. 30, the day he disappeared, according to published reports.

    Burnet was staying with friends at a Riverside Drive apartment building. He left around 4 p.m. and hasn’t been seen since. His friends in New York say he left all of his personal items including his cell phone inside the apartment.

    A website, a Facebook page and a Reddit page have been set up to aid in the search. Burnet’s older brother Jamie posted a plea on Reddit asking for help from the public last week.

    According to his post, Burnet’s last transactions were on Dec. 30 when he purchased the MetroCard and again at a Burger King. He says while Burnet did leave most of his personal belongings behind, the 22-year-old did take his ID and a jacket.

    The Reddit page has generated more than 400 comments about the case, offering suggestions and sympathy as well as discussions between Jamie and visitors.

    There are also reports that Burnet may have attempted suicide in the past. Jamie seemed to address that in a response to a question posted on Reddit that asked “have you ever thought he DOESN’T want to be found?”

    “Yes. There’s a very real possibility that he took his own life, and I’m trying not to think about it. He has a history of depression, and there have been scares before. But he didn’t leave any last messages behind, which would be extremely uncharacteristic… I’m hoping that’s not the case,” Jamie wrote. “As for the possibility that he’s alive and doesn’t want to be found… maybe. But if he’s out there alone, with no money, not much street sense, and only one light jacket, then he’s in danger no matter what his intention was.”

    He goes on to say “I’m still going to look for him until I find him, and when I find him I’ll hug him and then clobber him for making me cry.”

    More than 2,000 members have joined the Find Ian Burnet Facebook page. Burnet’s parents are also reportedly headed to New York City to help in the search.

    If you have any information on where Burnet might be, call police at 212-690-8842.

    CBS New York

    (CBS) NEW YORK - The parents of a 22-year-old Virginia man last seen on Dec. 30 in New York City are desperately seeking information about their missing son and have set up a website to help find him.

    Ian Burnet, an engineering student at Virginia Commonwealth University, had been staying with friends at an apartment on 139th Street and Riverside Drive in the days leading up to his disappearance.

    According to CBS New York, Burnet's father, Mark, told 1010 WINS News Radio that the young man's last known contact was with his roommate around 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 30.

    Burnet reportedly left his cell phone behind, but is believed to have had his driver's license and credit card with him when he vanished. No credit card purchases have been made in the more than 10 days since.

    "He knows how to take care of himself, but we're just really concerned why he hasn't contacted us, that's not in his character," Burnet said.

    Burnet is reportedly attending college on a full scholarship, and was both a high school valedictorian and an Eagle Scout. His parents say he has no history of substance abuse problems.

    Hundreds of volunteers have been posting flyers across New York City, Richmond and New Kent County, Va.

    A Facebook page, which so far has more than 1,800 members, and a website have been set up to help in the search.

    Burnet is 5-feet-10-inches, 160 pounds, with green eyes and curly dark brown hair.

    Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the NYPD at the 30th Precinct at 212-690-8842.
