Chandler Halderson is a Wisconsin guy whose parents vanished suddenly and who is accused of lying to authorities about their disappearance.
Bart and Krista Halderson are the missing couple. Chandler, according to his LinkedIn page, is a recent technical college graduate in computer technology who has worked as a lifeguard and teaching assistant. On the page, he stated that he is an Eagle Scout.
Authorities have discovered human remains and are seeking to identify them. In a statement posted on Facebook, the Dane County Sheriff’s Department said “Chandler M. Halderson, age 23, is currently being held in the Dane County Jail on a charge of providing false information in a missing person investigation. Chandler is the son of Bart and Krista,”
“The members of Dane County Sheriff’s Office first want to extend our thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of Bart and Krista Halderson. This has been a trying and emotional time and the Dane County Sheriff’s Office is doing everything we can to bring closure and justice to this investigation,”
He is 23 years old.
Chandler Halderson Parents Missing
Halderson was the one who reported his parents as missing. Chandler Halderson told WKOW-TV that he and his parents would be found.
He says, “It’s better not to listen to the negative theories,” and adding that his mother texted him to say the couple had arrived safely at their cabin but then vanished.
He continued, “They’re maybe at a casino, their phones off, no reception. Maybe they’re on a boat, having some fun with their friends.”
On Thursday, I interviewed 23-year-old Chandler Halderson, who reported his parents missing the night before.
That night, police arrested him for providing false information.
The Sheriff’s Department wrote, “Our investigation began on Wednesday, July 7th, when Chandler reported his parents missing at approximately 11:30 am that day. According to Chandler, his parents had left their Village of Windsor home early Friday morning with an unknown couple to spend the 4th of July holiday weekend at their cabin in White Lake, WI, but did not return as expected,”
“Our investigators immediately began efforts to locate the Haldersons, including reaching out to the Langlade County Sheriff’s Office to check the property in White Lake, but no one was located at that residence.”
The investigators wrote, “As the investigation progressed and detectives interviewed friends, family and neighbors of the missing couple, information was provided which resulted in detectives finding human remains on a rural property in Dane County on Thursday, July 8th,”
“A search warrant was obtained for the property and deputies are continuing to search that land for additional evidence.”
They continued: “The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office also responded to that scene Thursday night and will be conducting an autopsy of the remains at some point this weekend. It is important to mention that the remains have not yet been identified. This is still a very active investigation.”
Bart Halderson wrote on Facebook that he attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Valders High School and that he lived in DeForest, Wisconsin.
