Police in Anchorage are looking for a missing 18-year-old woman last seen working as a barista at a drive-through coffee stand Wednesday night.
NBC affiliate KTUU reports that APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker says Samantha Koenig was working at Common Grounds Espresso when she was last seen at 8 p.m. Authorities say her shift ended at that time, but she was not there when her boyfriend came to pick her up.
Law enforcement officials are looking at the surveillance video from the coffee stand and possibly a nearby business. At this time, there is no evidence of foul play, police say.
Samantha Koenig's father, James Koenig, said he believes his daughter was taken from her place of work. He says everything seemed to be normal with his daughter, and that he had spoken to her earlier that evening. It is not like her to take off, he said.
"At this time we're contacting her friends, family, all the people that know her, trying to find out if anyone saw her, if anyone heard from her," says Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz.
Alaska court records show Koenig filed for a protective order against a man in November, but she did not appear in court and the order was never issued.
Samantha Koenig is 5 feet 4 inches tall, 160 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Koenig's whereabouts is asked to call APD at 907-786-8900.
Please note that tarot will pick up TRENDS /VIBRATIONS of PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE - it will pick up anything that is 'out there' true news or false news - either way it can throw light on what is 'in the air' - please bear this in mind when you are reading the insights.
It is very important that 'readers' of the blog understand this, therefore one has to be very discerning when reading. Media news can put out stories that are not factual or are pre -mediated but Tarot can pick that up. It does,nt mean that tarot is wrong, it shows tarot can see what might be suggested. However when writing the tarot it may be taken as fact.
TAROT CANNOT BE CONSIDERED AS 100 PER CENT ACCURATE BY LAW
« Thread Started February 4th 2012 at 2:17am »
Samantha disappeared on lst February 2012 and I have put an alert out for her here on the blogger. I am hoping to get some Tarot reports out for some of the Missing alerts and below is a reading for Samantha. Please remember to read Tarots important message so that you understand how Tarot picks things up .
Tarot is past present and future and gives us 'glimpses' of the situation which I hope will hold some value even in part as to assist Samantha in some way. As Tarot must be defined as 'for entertainment only' by law I have to ask you to not consider tarot as FACT but to go to other sources for actual information.
When I write Tarot I have to put down what I get personally. How it figures in the overall picture I have no idea but you can see my first card for this young lady is the four of pentacles reversed. There may be a G name here. What I am getting is someone looking for work? seems like someone has either lost their job, left their job or quit?
I am seeing that there is a lack of money here and seems to me that someone needs to get more money. So either the above applies or she had to go to the Bank and get some money out. I am seeing her going towards the town or being in the town. I feel as though she has been robbed or something has been taken off her and of course this is pentacles which is money and possessions? So thats what Tarot is alerting me too.
There is also someone here maybe up to the age of 32 who may have seemed friendly on the surface of it but they are not. They could be ethnic meaning that they are mixed race. It does seem that way but could still be white. I feel as though this person has been very forceful.
I am seeing her isolated and on her own and I have a rural type of landscape here and possibly a property which could be a business property. The property may be closed or abandoned as Im not feeling it is open? if thats the word. There is someone who would be described as a very twisted type of businessman or at least someone who has some kind of bad vibe, I actually am seeing an old and vicious man.
So not sure if its just to do with a younger person or not. Anyway I will just mention that. Im seeing corruption and jealousy in these cards and obviously a threat to health with the pentacles reversed. It seems to me that there should have been an operative camera but Im not sure if anything was caught on CCTV. This seems to be all about money work and business.
I feel someone might have been bribed here or easily led so the overall situation is not looking good. Is there a ransom in this case? or has anybody asked for a ransom for this girl?
Pentacles are North in direction so thats what I would get first of all even in name of street or as the direction itself but there is a connection South here too again name of direction or street. There might have been reason to have 'watched her' during the third week of January so it makes you wonder whether this is something that has been thought about in advance? its possible.
I am seeing a wall and garden and taken away from family and isolated. There may be water in the vicinity but I see initially a moving away from that. Its possible a basement is in the picture. Names of flowers? and something red. Lets just move to the next card for the moment to look at location thoughts from Tarot.
Samantha was stalked and somebody owned a car likely four door and possibly red. I am seeing this oddly as somehow connected to someone she might have known BUT was not blood related?
I feel that there is or was some kind of family interference here I dont know the backstory at the moment but wonder if there is someone loosely connected to family here. There may just be three people I see? Not sure of the connection. A possible Junction or 'union'?
I am seeing all this in these cards as a picture to me. I feel as though with the Strength reversed like that that respiration might be affected in some way . Strength is giving rurality and some kind of landscape that ties in with a stream or river. I am not sure of the direction but there is a Lion in this card and I am seeing animal or animals. Principally there is a Lion in this card and the Number 8 seems to be important.
There is an old man or an older man who might have grey hair and a beard. I am seeing somewhere near a hill perhaps she has been hidden and concealed by this person. I dont know but sometimes I think there is a sexual deviant linked to the Hermit but at the same time I dont think that is the most prominent occurrence or happening.
I might be wrong but not sure that is the reason behind this persons mind or actions. I just feel that they would have her hidden. Holes come into view with this card I seem to feel as though its dark? sometimes mobiles and caravans can appear here but it could be that they are just nearby?
I am linking her with a vehicle and being in it. I dont know the 'time' scale whether its past or present or even future just that I see it. I see this car off the road. There is bad fate attached to the vehicle so it must be stationary. There might even be a 'mountain' in view. Im seeing something in the mouth or to do with the mouth - maybe dental? something yellow and to do with Taste? I am sensing snake like personality? or something to do with 'snake'?
I am seeing aggressiveness and intolerence here. Is someone jealous? who is this person , a third person? Jealous and nasty?
I am being connected to Roses and something WHITE. A very aggressive person cant be pacified here.
There is something about a Tuesday so what happened then, because it is significant. Someone seeking revenge isnt it? well this is the wrong way to do this. I also have something about 'traffic lights'. There is a lot of fear of this person maybe someone she would have avoided if possible. She is concealed and hidden and disguised. She may be wearing a mask or someone did or wore something over their face? at some point perhaps.
I have the word paranoid. Im getting 'she would'nt listen'? Justice is down so somebody was not happy about something that was to do with law? might have decided to do something about it.
I think shes left on her own .
Im seeing something about a roof or under a roof?
There may be a small connection to drinking eating or perhaps drugs. Possibly the name Michael but that is very rare even though it can show. Is someone around the family difficult with her?
Im seeing someone possibly with a limp in fact there are three people that I do see here and I have been given NORTH and the number 5 as help to find Samantha also that she could be found within 5. Normally pentacles are years but the 5 might just be coming out on its own. It might route 5? or just a 5 for distance. I see just outside of town somewhere and rural. I also see a park somewhere in the vicinity or in the surroundings, an arch and a bridge or one or the other. I see buildings but not up close though a movement more to North East I think.
I am sensing a possible money exchange so again, is there a ransom? Someones waiting to collect cash? There might be a church name or some kind of place that is a kind of retreat. That might mean a kind of hideout or it could be suggesting somewhere near a large building could be warehouse or some work building or again it might have those church reference/santuary type references. Its not a churchyard that I can see.
I think someone is trying to make money?
So number 5 may help with when Samantha might be found. Ultimately I am being given an EIGHT so eight is the prominent number as to where she is which brings us back to the Strength card and I feel Roses/Lion/animals landscape, stream/ something dental - dentist or oral being here that could mean speaking or asking for something - somewhere near a Hill or Hill in name, possible offside the road place. Colour white or white fabric or even Garland.
Hopefully something here will help Samantha. Tarot is not 100 per cent accurate but I give all I can in this brief overview hoping something will stand out to help her. I am very sorry that Samanthas family have been put to so much worry. Fingers crossed something gives soon. I may have missed some detail but I will come back again in a fortnight if she is not found.
RUNE READING FOR SAMANTHA KOENIG
This reading takes into account past present and future.
Though Samantha felt she was protected I have a reversed rune which suggests that the protection is open to hidden danger. It warns that one should not be over confident as protection is overturned and one is open to attack. It warns us that we should not be short sighted and vigilance was necessary. Number 15, colour Gold, Negative Male and Cancer are attached. Cancer is the Home and may show someone linked to someone she already knows or to something that may affect her home environment.
Water is connected to Cancer and The Moon and there may be a female also who is negatively enhanced.
Pine trees may form part of landscape. Possible concealment.
Letters of interest - Z and S.

There is a setting out North or NorthWest and not feeling there is anything to be afraid of. One has their belongings with them. Number 24. Samantha must be humble to keep out of dangers There is some change or change of direction.
This rune promotes life at the current time. A male is associated here as is the colour of Light Blue and possible W or finding of possessions.
Letters C and K seem prominent. There may be a wound. Guard against any dangers. A doorway is prominent. May be sexual overtones/relationship. Also to be aware of accidents or illness. Light Red is here number six torch and fire. There may be a false trail left. She must not rub salt in the 'wound'. This is symbolic.
Leaving on Foot male and female.
Colour White Number 19 trends of possible stalker - person who interferes with family or wishes to. Two Roads that lead into one somewhere slightly unfamiliar off the path. Not a partner by rights.
Money and Wealth Letter F. Animals /cattle names of for place or near.. Number 3 and Number 1., hollow enclosure, bird, spring, canal. A link to children - places that might link to children?
A home/hearth - male sexuality - someone hurt finger or pointing finger. Number 22 - connects to home/ water. A building. Lover may be shy? tries to co- erce feelings/thought.

ICHING READING FOR SAMANTHA KOENIG
The present is embodied in Hexagram 22 - Pi (Grace): He should find a free course, but there will be little advantage if he advance and take the lead.
The second line, divided, shows one adorning his beard.
The fourth line, divided, shows one looking as if adorned, but only in white. As if mounted on a white horse and furnished with wings, he seeks union with the subject of the first line, while the intervening third pursues, not as a robber, but intent on a matrimonial alliance.
The fifth line, divided, shows its subject adorned by the occupants of the heights and gardens. He bears his roll of silk, small and slight. He may appear stingy, but there will be good fortune in the end.
The situation is shifting, and Yang (the active masculine force) is becoming much more powerful.
The future is embodied in Hexagram 1 - Ch'ien (The Creative): That which is great and originating, penetrating, advantageous, correct and firm.
The things most apparent, those above and in front, are embodied by the upper trigram Ken (Mountain), which is transforming into Chi'en (Heaven). As part of this process, stillness and obstruction are giving way to strength and creativity.
The things least apparent, those below and behind, are embodied by the lower trigram Li (Fire), which is transforming into Chi'en (Heaven). As part of this process, brightness and warmth are giving way to strength and creativity.

Terry Stahlman owns adult entertainment businesses in Anchorage and Fairbanks. He's offering The Showboat in Anchorage as a reward for information that leads to finding missing barista Samantha Koenig. (MARC LESTER / Anchorage Daily News)
Add to the $70,000 or so reward fund to help find missing barista Samantha Koenig one strip club business that could be worth as much as $250,000, courtesy of Terry Stahlman.
That's right, Stahlman, felon, recovering drug addict, fading strip club kingpin and occasional street philanthropist, would like to make this his largest public gift yet. He's retiring, so it's kind of a finale.
He called me last week to tell me about it. His idea: give The Showboat Showclub in Anchorage to anybody who provides police with the information they need to find Koenig, whether she is dead or alive, he said. The tipster has 10 business days from today.
"I want to do something real grandiose," he said. "Get this thing some attention."
The Showboat, housed in a fluorescent green and blue building on Fifth Avenue, is home to six or seven strippers, some as young as 18, who rent the privilege of stripping to their underwear on the premises. Cokes and energy drinks are on offer for $10 to $15 apiece.
Police believe missing barista may be alive

But those in Bird's corner -- including a man who described himself as Samantha Koenig's step-brother, Michael Pedersen -- have not remained silent about what they say are Koenig's past indiscretions, taking to Facebook and talking to reporters about what they say her life was really like.
For one thing, Pedersen said, Koenig told him she made up everything in the protective order filing, and he had heard she had problems with her dad and her boyfriend.
APD says it's had two detectives working the case in Texas for the last few days, and the arrest was announced at APD headquarters Thursday afternoon in a joint press conference by APD and the FBI. Few additional details were released about the investigation Thursday, but police did say Keyes was staying at a Turnagain house at 2456 Spurr Ln. that was visited by APD's Major Crime Scene unit Tuesday night.
Keyes is being held in a federal facility in Beaumont, Texas on unspecified charges.
"The federal arrest warrant was sealed; therefore, details related to his charges will not be released at this time," APD spokesperson Anita Shell wrote in a press release.
Court documents filed in Texas show that Keyes was charged with access device fraud, a typical crime involved in identity theft related to the use of another person's credit or debit cards. U.S. attorneys also ask in the documents that Keyes be held without bail, because of both escape risk and "a serious risk that the defendant will obstruct or attempt to obstruct justice, or threaten, injure, or intimidate or attempt to threaten, injure or intimidate, a prospective witness or juror."

Israel Keyes Charged with Kidnapping Resulting in Death of Samantha Koenig
READ FULL STORY AT LINK BELOW
Israel Keyes, previously described as “the main player” in Samantha Koenig’s abduction, is now facing federal charges of kidnapping resulting in the 18-year-old barista's death.
Charging documents filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Anchorage also list a count of receipt and possession of ransom money against Keyes, 34, as well as an existing count of access device fraud.
According to the documents, Keyes allegedly abducted Koenig from Midtown coffee stand Common Grounds Espresso -- an event APD said was seen by surveillance cameras -- and forced her into a white Chevrolet pickup truck parked in the nearby Home Depot parking lot at on the night of Feb. 1. He also allegedly took a debit card from a vehicle Koenig shared that was parked near her residence, forcing her to give him the card’s PIN which he scratched into the card.
The documents say Keyes killed Koenig on Feb. 2, then boarded a commercial airline flight from Anchorage to Houston, Texas and subsequently returned to Anchorage. On Feb. 24, Keyes allegedly used Koenig's cell phone to demand that ransom payments for her return be deposited to the debit card.
At Wednesday's announcement of the charges, federal officials say money from the reward funds to find Koenig was used to make ransom payments, which Keyes received by making several withdrawals from the debit card's account totaling $2,440 at several locations in Alaska, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Keyes was arrested in March in Lufkin, Texas on the access-device fraud charge.
