FS#21968 - "Missing In Action" Quest Objective Stuck

I’m stuck on the quest “missing in action”, I waited too long with the quest in my log and now if I go in the grey-mane home (which I have to lock pick) and speak to Fralia the quest objective will not change from “meet Fralia in her home” and I can’t go any further in the quest- all I can do is speak to her again and I cannot find a work around. Fralia and Avulstein do not become hostel or accuses me of trespassing and I can use the wait function in the home so this is not because I had to lock pick the door.

I know others have had similar problems with this quest but can’t find any reports of this problem.

Also thank you for all the effort you put into patching Skyrim. You guys are great.

There is  FS#21367  that is still open but they sound like slightly different issues. Can't say I've ever had a quest bug from waiting too long before.

Hey BlackPete. By waiting too long I mean I went off to do other quests after Fralia asked me to meet her at her home which from what I read online can apparently break this quest - sorry if that wasn't clear. Also sorry if I'd realised another bug report had a similar problem I would have posted this there. I did a search for quest objective stuck which didnt show that report- guess I should have been more specific.

It's okay. I understand what you mean now. That being said, we did do a fix for something that sounds a lot like what you're experiencing (see below); it is a non-retroactive fix so if you didn't have the patch installed when you started your game it won't work (assuming it's the same issue).

Change log

Missing in Action (MS09) could end up with the doors to House Gray-Mane becoming locked if the player waits too long to meet with Fralia. This would in turn cause them to flag the player as trespassing. Avulstein's sandbox package inside the home did not have conditions set to stop it once the quest had been officially started. (Bug #17127, Bug #17144) [NR]

I installed the patch as soon as I got the game. The doors are locked but I'm not flagged as trespassing when I lockpick them, its just the "meet Fralia in her home" objective won't mark as complete after i speak to her and I don't get a new objective, meaning all I can do is speak to her. If I try speaking to Avulstein it does nothing in relation to the quest.
