Melissa Highsmith Part 2: A Delicate Thread Unraveled
01:12:15

Last week, we brought you the first part of Melissa Highsmith’s story. On August 23, 1971, 21-month-old Melissa was abducted by a woman who responded to a classified ad her mother placed in the local newspaper. Or, at least, that’s the story that Melissa’s mother and roommate told police when they reported her missing. Was Melissa really abducted by this woman calling herself Ruth Johnson, or was there more to the story? And that’s just the beginning of the 50-year-old stone-cold mystery we’ve been chipping away at.

Melissa Highsmith Part 1: The Woman with White Gloves
00:51:51

On August 18, 1971, a classified ad was published for a single day in the Fort Worth, Texas newspaper, the "Fort Worth Star-Telegram." The ad read, "Babysitter wanted from 8 to 3:30 days, Spanish Gate apartments, call after 3 pm" with a phone number listed. On August 23, 1971, a woman who said her name was Ruth Johnson came to the door of Alta Highsmith, who had placed the ad, and said she was there to pick up Alta's 21-month-old daughter, Melissa Highsmith. Alta's roommate gave the baby to the woman named Ruth, who promised to return her that afternoon. Melissa Highsmith has never been seen again. The story of Melissa's abduction is a tale we will unfold for you with exclusive interviews, new information, and questions that seem as though they should be easy to answer.


If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Melissa Highsmith, please call Sergeant John Phillips with the Fort Worth Police Department at 817-889-0842. If you are unable to reach Sergeant Phillips, you can call the Fort Worth Police Department non-emergency line at 817-392-4200 and ask for Lt. Richard Demore, the supervising officer over the violent crimes unit, where we believe Melissa's case is held.

Jarrod Green Part 2: Above the Law
01:33:13

Last week, we brought you the first installment in Jarrod Green's story. 20-year-old Jarrod Green disappeared from Searcy, Arkansas, in September of 1994. Jarrod seemed to be in a panic and concerned about his safety. He was emotional on a call with his girlfriend but wouldn't go into details. Jarrod also retrieved a gun from a friend. His family knew he had plans to meet someone, and then he vanished. Jarrod's car turned up in Searcy at a store several days later. Today, we will explore the people in Jarrod's circle in the lead-up to his disappearance and what role they may have had in his disappearance.

If you want to get involved, please join Shannon's group, Justice for Jarrod, on Facebook. 

If you have any information regarding Jarrod Green's disappearance, please call the Searcy Police Department at (501) 268-3531.

Jarrod Green Part 1: Retribution
00:49:51

On September 30, 1994, 20-year-old Jarrod Green disappeared from Searcy, Arkansas. Jarrod had indicated to his family that he had plans to meet with someone that night. During a phone call with his girlfriend, Jarrod was clearly upset but wouldn't tell her what was wrong. Jarrod had previously given a gun to a friend and retrieved the gun, saying he needed it for protection. Jarrod never made it home that evening and was never seen or heard from again. Days later, Jarrod's car was found abandoned in the parking lot of a local store. The car doors were left unlocked, windows rolled down, and the keys were on the floor. Jarrod's case went cold, his family didn't hear from law enforcement, and it felt like he was forgotten.

Meanwhile, dark stories continued to grow and spread through the community like a cancer. Not even a year later, someone else in Jarrod's circle disappeared. Another one took his own life and reportedly confessed to playing a role in Jarrod's murder beforehand. Years later, some rookie detectives decided to take a fresh look at this cold case, and there was finally some movement. 

If you have any information regarding Jarrod Green's disappearance, please call the Searcy Police Department at (501) 268-3531.

You can follow developments in Jarrod's case on Facebook at Justice for Jarrod

Kelly "Allison" Whiddon Part 2: Confession or Concoction?
01:14:19

Last week, we brought you the first part of Allison Whiddon’s story, which started with another woman with the same name being mistaken for the missing Allison. She joined Allison’s family in their search for Allison, which included looking at numerous possible suspects, knocking on doors, excavating land, and speaking to witnesses to yield information. Then, there was an alleged confession that detailed Allison’s death- who was involved, when, and where. But was that story believable or a complete fabrication?

If you have any information about Allison’s disappearance, please call the Bay County Sheriff’s Office at 850-747-4700.

Kelly "Allison" Whiddon Part 1: I’m Not Missing, Am I?
00:49:44

Around April 19, 2016, 44-year-old Kelly "Allison" Whiddon disappeared from Panama City Beach, Florida. Allison was in the middle of breaking up with the man she had been dating. This man had a history of violence and threats he promised to make good on. The two got into an altercation in a restaurant, and her boyfriend claimed he never saw her again, changed his story later, and subsequently refused to cooperate with police after they started investigating her disappearance. No one reported Allison missing until the end of May. Why did it take six weeks for anyone else to realize she was missing? What has occurred since then is truly extraordinary. However, Allison Whiddon is still missing, and the mystery surrounding her disappearance continues to deepen.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Kelly Allison Whiddon, please contact the Bay County Sheriff's Office at (850) 747-4700 or CRIME STOPPERS at (850) 785-TIPS.

Tune in on October 24 for Part 2 of Allison's story.

Brandon Helms
01:04:53

In December 2015, 42-year-old Brandon Helms was temporarily living with a friend in Lakeland, Georgia. Brandon and his wife had recently separated, and Brandon was navigating this new territory. Brandon wanted to make his marriage work. He loved his wife and adored their daughters. On December 14th, Brandon’s wife called his parents to ask if they had seen or heard from him, but they had not. Brandon’s friend said Brandon was there when he left the house that day, but when he returned, Brandon was nowhere to be found. Brandon’s truck, phone, cigarettes, and jacket were left behind. Search and rescue responded and searched the area, but they never found any trace of Brandon Helms. The case went cold for several years until law enforcement decided to take a second look. Perhaps things weren’t as simple as they appeared on the surface.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Brandon Helms, please call the Lanier County Sheriff’s Office at (229) 482-3545.

Dawn Blankenheim
01:11:26

Sometime between May 16 and May 25, 2020, 53-year-old Dawn Blankenheim vanished from Chico, California. No isolated event or indication foreshadowed her disappearance, but like every missing person, Dawn didn't just disappear. There is always more to the story. Dawn had been in the hospital in mid-May and was picked up by a friend after she was discharged. They were spotted at a local bar together over the weekend. Dawn scheduled a rideshare service to get home, then abruptly canceled. No one has ever seen or heard from Dawn again. Dawn's loved ones are left behind to sift through the many unanswered questions, disturbing circumstances, and subtle clues that there is more to Dawn's story than what appears on the surface.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Dawn Blankenheim, you are asked to call the Chico, California Police Department at (530) 897-4900.

Case Update: Megan Foglesong
01:42:40

21-year-old Megan Foglesong disappeared from Alden, Kansas, around the end of November 2015. When we first covered Megan’s story in 2016, nearly everyone pointed to Megan’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, David Madden. Megan attempted to leave him in the past and told others around Thanksgiving of 2015 that she was leaving him again. Several days later, Megan sent a message to a friend indicating that she was back at David’s, then she went silent. Around this time, David texted the local undersheriff to inform him that Megan had stolen from him and ran off. In hindsight, that story about Megan stealing seems rather convenient, possibly a way to explain her absence. But at that time, no one thought much of it. They figured Megan would pop up somewhere soon. Maybe she left David and was hiding? Time passed, and Megan’s loved ones became more concerned. David didn’t seem interested in finding Megan. Despite rumors and suspicions swirling around town about David’s involvement, Megan’s case went cold. As the years went by, David went on to commit a series of other crimes that left the community convinced that he was responsible for Megan’s disappearance.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Megan Foglesong, please contact KBI at 316-337-6100 or the Rice County Sheriff’s Office at (620) 257-7876. You can follow the search for Megan on social media at Bring Megan Home.

James "Jamie" Valdez
01:30:47

In early June of 2021, 47-year-old Jamie Valdez and his wife, Anna, had just moved to Booneville, Arkansas, from Texas. Their relationship was on the rocks, and Jamie’s wife said that Jamie left their home on June 9, 2021. An old coworker claims that she saw Jamie 30 miles north of Booneville in Ozark several days later, and the coworker invited him over for dinner with her family. She said he planned to go home and patch things up with his wife. Jamie Valdez has never been seen again. His disappearance is filled with many gaps in time, strange coincidences, conflicting stories, and lapses in memory that have turned the search for him into a bizarre obstacle course with very few concrete facts. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Jamie Valdez, please call the Booneville, Arkansas Police Department at (479) 675-3508.

If you would like to follow Jamie’s story and updates on social media, you can join the group dedicated to finding him at JAMES “JAMIE” VALDEZ MISSING.

Barbara Cotton Part 2: A Tangled Web
01:20:11

On April 11, 1981, 15-year-old Barbara Cotton disappeared from Williston, North Dakota. Barbara was a bright young woman with plans for her future. She was saving for her first apartment that she planned to rent when she turned 16 in the fall. Barb’s dreams came to a screeching halt on that chilly spring evening when she seemingly disappeared into the night. Piecing together even the most basic clues today is difficult. Who last saw Barb, and at what time? And how can we even confirm these things now? There are conflicting stories and big puzzle pieces missing. Now more than ever, people are invested in finding out what happened to Barbara Cotton. They might be getting closer to the truth. 

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Barbara Cotton, please contact the Williston Police Department at 701-577-1212.

Barbara Cotton Part 1: A Lost Girl
00:53:14

On April 11, 1981, a 15-year-old girl named Barbara Cotton disappeared from Williston, North Dakota. Barbara's mother, Louise, called around to her friends to see if they had seen her, but no one said they had. Louise reported her daughter missing to the Williston Police Department and sent any tips she heard their way. The weeks and months passed with no sign of Barbara, and her case went ice cold. It didn't seem like much was being done to find Barb, at least to her loved ones; that is how it appeared. Perhaps she had run away? As with many missing teens in that era, that was often the assumption. Decades later, there is now a renewed effort to find Barbara Cotton and answer the many questions that linger today.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Barbara Cotton, please contact the Williston Police Department at 701-577-1212.

You can follow Barb’s story on social media at Find Barb Cotton. You can find more information at FindBarbCotton.com, and check out Dakota Spotlight wherever you get your podcasts.

Case Update: Finding Lillianna Pagano
01:08:36

Three years ago, we brought you the story of Lillianna Pagano, who had been abducted by her mother, Jillanne, when Lillianna was an infant. A few days before airing our story on Lillianna, we received word that she had been found alive and was reunited with her father, Tyler, a completely unexpected surprise. While this was the ending we hope for in every story, Tyler and Lillianna still had a rough road ahead of them. Lillianna had been missing for nearly six years and was told her father was dead. We recently checked in with Tyler to see how Lillianna is doing with her dad today and what they’ve been through together since they were reunited in June of 2019.

Toby Anderson
01:11:21

16-year-old Toby Anderson had found himself in some trouble during his teen years. Toby’s life wasn’t easy, and he began to act out. Toby was sent to a juvenile facility in Northern California and was shifted around between different family members. Then, he just disappeared, and everyone seemed to believe Toby had run away. Since Toby had been in trouble, running away didn’t seem far-fetched. Toby’s father searched for him and contacted relatives in other states to see if he had turned up there, but he never did. Then, Toby’s dad died, and not much was done to look for him. Decades later, a cousin took an interest in finding Toby. She learned that some of what she had been told about Toby couldn’t be true, and what she began to uncover was truly horrifying.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Toby Anderson, please contact the Oregon State Police at (541) 776-6236.

Jake Latiolais
01:15:06

In the early morning hours of August 29, 2014, a call came in about a person seen sitting on the railing of the I-10 bridge that spans the Mississippi River in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Police responded and found an abandoned truck belonging to 22-year-old Jake Latiolais. The truck was running, and Jake's phone was inside, but no sign of Jake. The 911 callers remain unknown, or at least, police haven't shared the identity of the people who made the calls, but Jake Latiolais has never been seen again. Jake's story is full of shadowy, unknown characters, circumstances that appear to lead to one outcome, but rumors and motives that suggest something more sinister happened to Jake.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Jake Latiolais, you can call the Baton Rouge Police Department at (225) 239-7832 or the West Baton Rouge Police Department at (225) 343-9234.

Eugene Prins
00:56:39

On March 26, 2020, 45-year-old Eugene Prins planned a short road trip with a friend to drop off a wood splitter. They started out in Woonsocket, South Dakota, and drove about 25 miles east to the tiny town of Fedora. After that, Eugene and his friend were spotted at a bar in Forestburg, which was along their route home. The last confirmed sighting of Eugene was at the bar. The truck they were in was seen on camera driving away from the bar at 7:38 PM. Other bar patrons said that you could tell they had been drinking, but Eugene didn’t appear to be visibly intoxicated, and he had mentioned that he wanted to go home, he had work in the morning. But according to Eugene’s friend, he made a detour to stop at a mutual friend’s farm. He went inside while Eugene stayed in the car. When the friend came out about 20 minutes later, Eugene was gone. And he has never been seen or heard from again. 

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Eugene Prins, please contact the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation at 605-773-3331.

Cynthia Constantine
00:49:47

On July 11, 1969, 15-year-old Cynthia Constantine took her dog for a walk as she did every afternoon in the family’s hometown of Oakdale, New York. Cynthia loved walking along the railroad tracks alongside a busy highway and often explored the area with her brother. On this day, Cynthia walked with her dog alone, picking up cattails along the way. Cynthia had planned to go check out a muskrat burrow she spotted earlier in the day while with her brother. But Cynthia never returned home, and when the family dog came home without her, the family immediately knew something was wrong. Backtracking her steps, Cynthia’s mother and brother found a pile of cattails that Cynthia had likely collected and dropped. This is the spot where Cynthia is believed to have vanished from more than 53 years ago and has never been seen or heard from again.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Cynthia Constantine, please call the Suffolk County Police Department at 631-852-6110

Madeline Babcock
01:24:59

It was during the summer of 1968 that a 35-year-old woman named Madeline Babcock disappeared from Venice, California. Madeline’s apartment appeared to have been cleared out. Her family reported her missing, but the police didn’t seem interested. Madeline had a right to move and not tell her family. She had the right to disappear if she wanted to. Around this same time, a little girl in Washington believed she witnessed her father and his friend murder a woman. These two stories would move parallel through time over a period of decades before eventually converging once that little girl grew up and started looking for answers to the memory that had plagued her for years.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Madeline Babcock, please contact the Los Angeles Police Department’s Adult Missing Persons Unit at (877) 275-5273 or the Vancouver Police Department at (360) 693-3111.

George James
01:01:35

22-year-old George James was last seen by his family on November 23, 1998. He argued with his mother at her Millbrook, Alabama, home and stormed off. Something seemed to be weighing heavily on George, like he needed to escape some sort of danger. George’s mother, Tillis, was confused by this interaction but never imagined this would be the last time she would ever see her son. As the days passed with no word from George, Tillis reported him missing. And since that day, she has never stopped searching for her son. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of George James, please contact the Montgomery Police Department at 334-625-2532.

In November of 2021, 22-year-old Bryan "Vladek" Hasel vanished from Orlando, Florida, while his family was out of town celebrating his sister's birthday. When exactly Bryan, who went by his birth name, Vladek, disappeared is one of the biggest mysteries in his case. There are so many questions in Vladek's story. When we began looking at Vladek's disappearance, we uncovered everything between the scandalous and the mundane, and all of it could lead to finding Vladek.

Daniel Reoch
01:07:02

On November 25, 2019, 29-year-old Daniel Reoch was in the custody of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Squamish, British Columbia. They picked Daniel up while walking along a rural road in temperatures just barely above freezing, and he was not dressed for the weather. Daniel called his uncle, but something didn’t seem right- his demeanor was off, he was in the midst of a crisis- and the police and Daniel’s family were concerned. But they couldn’t hold him, and he was released from custody that evening. Twelve hours later, he’d vanish into the dark of night, walking off into the darkness of another road in a rural part of the Squamish Valley, never to be seen again.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Daniel Reoch, please call the Squamish Royal Canadian Mounted Police at 604-892-6100. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-(TIPS).

Jimmy Don Robinson
01:22:07

On October 1, 1976, Jimmy Don Robinson disappeared from Elmore City, Oklahoma, just a week after his 21st birthday. Jimmy was no longer living at the Robinson family home but stopped by around midnight. His mom had just gotten home after working a late shift and was cooking some dinner for herself. Jimmy briefly spoke to his family, and they noticed there was a man in the passenger seat of the car that Jimmy was driving. They didn't recognize the man, and Jimmy didn't mention who he was. He said he would drop the man off and be back in about 30 minutes. However, Jimmy never returned, and nearly 46 years later, Jimmy's family is still searching for answers. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Jimmy Don Robinson, please contact the Garvin County Sheriff's Office at (405) 238-7591 or Garvin County Crimestoppers at 1-855-211-STOP.

Sandra Eckert
01:20:36

Shortly before midnight on March 26, 2021, 70-year-old Sandra Eckert got into a fight with her husband. It wasn't their first, in fact, it may not have been their first that day. Sandra and her husband had remained in a mutually miserable marriage that was plagued by COVID quarantines, inheritance disputes, and other issues. So when Sandra and her husband's vehicle disappeared around 11:30 PM, it seemed possible that she left in anger and went to stay somewhere else. But just a few hours later, before her family knew anything was wrong, it became clear that Sandra didn't choose to disappear.

Tune in to hear from Sandra's friends and family about their journey to find answers, including the last person to see Sandra alive, her husband.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Sandra Eckert or her car, please call the Franklin Police Department at 414-425-2522.

Isaac Seidel Part 2: The Last Ride
00:58:51

Yesterday, we brought you the first installment of Isaac Seidel’s story. You learned a lot about Isaac’s life and the events that occurred in the lead-up to his disappearance. You also learned that Isaac disappeared along with his bike, phone, and backpack. Everything else seemed to be left behind at his home. Isaac hadn’t told anyone that he planned to go anywhere. In fact, it appeared that Isaac had gone about his regular Sunday routine. He had his chicken out thawing, which is something he would do on Sunday to prep his meals for the week. It looked like he had gone for a bike ride with plans to return before dinner. But something happened to Isaac Seidel, and whatever happened to him remains a mystery nearly nine months later.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Isaac Seidel, please contact the Pennsylvania State Police at (717) 567-3110. Missing along with Isaac is his dark green Cannondale bicycle.

Megan has a social media page for Isaac to help spread awareness. You can follow her over on Facebook at Find Isaac Seidel

Isaac Seidel Part 1: A Simple Life
00:59:17

36-year-old Isaac Seidel disappeared from Blain, Pennsylvania, on September 12, 2021. By the time Isaac's loved ones realized that anything was wrong, Isaac had already missed a few days of work. When they went to his home, where Isaac lived alone, an eerie scene was left behind. Isaac's bicycle, backpack, and phone were missing, but everything else seemed to be there except Isaac. He had left chicken thawing in the sink. It appeared that he had decided to go for a bike ride and planned to be back later to cook chicken for dinner. Isaac's family thought that perhaps Isaac had been in a tragic accident, so they began scouring the roadways near Isaac's house, looking in ditches and ravines. But there was no trace of Isaac anywhere. Nearly nine months later, they are still searching for answers.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Isaac Seidel, please contact the Pennsylvania State Police at (717) 567-3110. Missing along with Isaac is his dark green Cannondale bicycle.

01:07:27

Last week, we brought you the first two installments of Bill Jamison’s story. In Part 1, we discussed what occurred the night that Bill disappeared and the initial investigation into his disappearance. In Part 2, we went over all the strange things with Bill’s job and the people connected to his job who may have had a motive to harm Bill. Today, we will take a look at some other aspects of this case and discuss all the different theories that have emerged over the years.

If you have any information about the disappearance of William Jamison, please contact the Roselle Park Police Department at (908) 245-2300 or the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit at (609) 882-2000.

William Jamison Part 2: The Cost of Doing Business
01:02:30

In the early morning hours of March 27, 1981, Bill Jamison disappeared after a night out at a bar and stopping for a quick bite to eat at a diner. When Bill left the restaurant, it was a clear night in the mid to low the 40s. But something happened to Bill after he left the diner. The waitress who served Bill didn’t notice anything was wrong. Bill ordered the same thing he always got during his late-night stops. Bill finished his meal, walked out into the night, and disappeared forever. Yesterday, you learned about Bill’s disappearance and the efforts to find him early on. His family didn’t feel like they were getting enough help from law enforcement, so they started their own search, sometimes using unconventional methods like psychics. They met with law enforcement, begging them to do more. Over the years, family members sent letters to just about anyone they thought might listen or have resources that could aid their search efforts. Forty-one years later, Bill’s disappearance remains just as much of a mystery as in 1981. Today, we will look at some things happening at Bill’s work during the lead-up to his disappearance because a lot was going on. His family has always wondered if that could have something to do with what happened to Bill. 


If you have any information about the disappearance of William Jamison, please contact the Roselle Park Police Department at (908) 245-2300 or the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit at (609) 882-2000.

William Jamison Part 1: The Drive Home
00:59:07

March 26, 1981, was just an ordinary day for 33-year-old William Jamison. He went to work at Haug Die Casting Company in Kenilworth, NJ, where he was the vice president of production. After work, Bill went to a restaurant for dinner. Bill’s next stop was the Chez Lounge inside Linden Lanes Bowling Alley in Linden, NJ. After spending several hours enjoying drinks and good conversation with friends and acquaintances, Bill left and stopped at the St. George Diner in Linden for a quick late-night meal. He arrived around 1 AM and left about 30 minutes later. That’s the last time that anyone ever saw Bill Jamison. It was like he had vanished into the night. Bill’s coworkers were immediately concerned when he didn’t show up at 8 AM as he usually did. One coworker went over to Bill’s apartment, but Bill wasn’t there. They decided it was time to contact Bill’s sister, Katie. Katie jumped into action. She contacted law enforcement and began calling all the hospitals in the area. More than 41 years later, Bill’s family is still looking for answers. This is a mysterious story that goes in many unexpected directions, from sightings of Bill several states away to the theory that this was a mob hit.

If you have any information about the disappearance of William Jamison, please contact the Roselle Park Police Department at (908) 245-2300 or the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit at (609) 882-2000.

Andrea Cotten
01:03:32

17-year-old Andrea Cotten disappeared from Corsicana, Texas, in late January of 2004. In 2021, a local resident reached out to us about Andrea- the only missing person in Corsicana. So we started doing research and looking for people who knew her, and would talk to us. We learned that Andrea’s story was far bigger, more scandalous, and stranger than we could have imagined, all with Andrea, not yet an adult but not seemingly considered a child, at its center. There were stories that Andrea was last seen leaving in a truck with two men and other stories pointing to her own family. 

If you have any information about Andrea’s disappearance, please call the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol division in Corsicana at ​​(903) 872-5633. You can also contact the Texas Department of Public Safety Missing Persons Clearinghouse at 1-(800) 346-3243.

Judith Brown
00:59:00

19-year-old Judith Brown disappeared from New York City in April of 1977. Judith lived on her own, so her family wasn’t immediately aware that she was missing. Judith’s family learned she was missing when the FBI came knocking at their door. They were shocked to learn that Judith had disappeared along with someone else, a murderer who had escaped from a local mental health facility. More than 45 years later, both of them remain missing. For many years, Judith’s family kept quiet about this. It was too upsetting to reopen those wounds. As the years wore on, a younger generation of Judith’s family took an interest in finding answers. Today, they are left to sift through the remaining clues passed down through family members and old documents. 

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Judith Brown, please contact the NYPD Missing Persons Squad at 212-694-7781.

Michael Wallace
01:25:23

Michael Wallace was a 29-year-old Massachusetts native living in Menlo Park, California, with a bright future and full life ahead of him. He had graduated from one of the most elite universities in the world and didn’t have to worry about finding a job. So when he disappeared without a trace, his family had to wonder- did he choose to vanish? Was his fascination with The Bourne Identity and Catch Me If You Can more than just a dream? Did he seek answers in a monastery after studying Buddhism for several years? We don’t have all the answers to these questions, but this is the compelling, mysterious story of a brilliant man who wanted to find answers to his own internal struggles for himself and others, but vanished before that happened and has not been seen since February 4, 2003.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Michael Jay Amico Wallace, you are encouraged to call the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office at 650-363-4050

Case Update: Antonio Jordan Neill
01:15:32

We first brought you Antonio’s story in June of 2018. At that time, Antonio was still missing. His case had gone from a missing person case, to an active homicide investigation, and back to a missing case again. Antonio’s mom was left in limbo, not knowing what had happened to her son. All she had were the strange stories coming from people who had been in the house with Antonio when he disappeared. Was it true that Antonio had stabbed Andrew in the neck, completely unprovoked, then ran out of the house, disappearing forever? Jenny never believed that this version of events was true, but there was no evidence to prove what had happened. Then, six months after our original episode aired, and more than two years after Antonio had vanished, people walking along the shore of Jetty Island made a gruesome discovery.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance and death of Antonio Neill, please contact the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office at 425-388-3393. Crime Stoppers is currently offering a $1000 reward for information on Antonio’s case. To submit a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers, go to www.P3Tips.com or call 1-800-222-Tips.

Andrew Chapman
01:19:43

In early December of 2006, 32-year-old Andrew Chapman disappeared from the Hilltop area of Columbus, Ohio. At the time, Andrew lived with a couple of roommates on Whitethorne Avenue. Andrew called his mom and told her that he needed her to come by his place because he had something to give her. He seemed to be in a bit of a panic. Andrew's mom, Judy, was very ill at the time and couldn't make the trip to see Andrew that day. In the days that followed, Judy was on the mend and stopped by Andrew's apartment to see what he needed. Judy was shocked to find that Andrew's apartment had been completely cleaned out. Andrew and his roommates were gone. Phone calls to Andrew went unanswered, and no one had any clue where he could be. Andrew's case quickly went cold, and maybe he wanted some time away from family? As the years went by, more perplexing clues began to surface as Andy's sister started digging into the case herself. Today, many questions remain unanswered, but Andrew's family is determined to find out what happened to him.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Andrew Chapman, please contact the Columbus Police Department at 614-645-4545.

Felicia Cochran
01:20:16

26-year-old Felicia Cochran disappeared from Pell City, Alabama, on June 11, 1992. Felicia's mother spoke to her about her plans and saw her leave home around 6 PM. Then, Felicia was seen arguing with someone in the parking lot of a local hair salon. The people at the salon knew Felicia and were concerned enough to call 911. When the police got there, Felicia was gone, and she was never seen or heard from again. Hours later, a passerby found Felicia's car burning on a rural road in Talladega County, Alabama. Felicia's family felt like they knew who was responsible for her disappearance. However, nearly 30 years later, Felicia is still missing, and many questions remain.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Felicia Cochran, please contact the Pell City Police Department at (205) 884-3334.

Teresa Kennedy and Bethany Tiner Part 1: Left Behind
00:58:10

On December 3, 1996, a letter was written that said the following: “in the event of my death or disability, I grant custody to, and ask the court to give legal custody of my daughter, Bethany Maria Tiner, to my parents, Lee Aaron Kennedy and Catherine Aline Kennedy.” The letter, penned by Teresa Kennedy, indicated that Bethany was in danger. Just one month later, in January 1997, 28-year-old Teresa and 3-year-old Bethany would vanish from Chickasha, Oklahoma forever. Teresa, Bethany, and a woman Teresa knew, Rachel Lewis, have not been seen in more than 25 years, and their story is one that will shock and horrify you.

If you have any information about the disappearances of Teresa Kennedy, Bethany Tiner, or Rachel Lewis, please contact the Chickasha Police Department at 405-222-6050. You may also reach out to federal authorities with the US Marshals Service in the Western District of Oklahoma at 405-231-4206.

Shane Sprenger
00:51:15

Shane Sprenger disappeared from Vida, Oregon, on November 2, 2021. Shane was a contractor, and on that day, he was working at a job site near McKenzie Bridge, Oregon. Around 9:30 am, Shane left the job and returned to his home in Vida. No one ever saw Shane again. In the days following his disappearance, Shane's truck was found abandoned on a logging road near the Blue River Reservoir, about 16 miles away from his home. The area where they found the vehicle was one of Shane's favorite mushroom picking spots. It was suggested by some people close to Shane that maybe he had gone mushroom picking and got lost. However, it was later discovered that Shane planned to return to the job site to meet with a subcontractor. It did not make sense that Shane would have stopped to pick mushrooms because all clues indicated that he was planning to return to work after a quick break. Shane's family in Minnesota had no idea that anything was wrong until they got a phone several days after Shane vanished. They made the trip to Oregon to search for him. They began to hear strange stories about the day Shane disappeared, tales that simply weren't adding up.

If you have any information about Shane Sprenger's disappearance, please contact the Lane County Sheriff's Office at 541-682-4150.

Antonio "TJ" Vela Jr.
00:52:45

In mid-June of 2017, 36-year-old Antonio Vela spent an evening hanging out at a local bar in Victoria, Texas. He left right before closing and told the bartender that he planned to grab some food and head home for the night. Hours later, Antonio’s roommate woke up and was getting ready for the day when he decided to take the trash out. He exited the home through the garage, where he found a strange scene. Antonio’s car wasn’t there, but his snacks and phone were lying on the ground. That was when he realized that Antonio wasn’t home and that something wasn’t right. Antonio’s roommate started calling around and asking on social media if anyone had seen him. As Antonio’s family learned he was missing, they began frantically searching for him. More than four and a half years have passed, and they are still searching for answers.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Antonio Vela Jr., who also goes by TJ or Speshul Ed, please contact the Victoria Police Department at 361-485-3700 or Crimestoppers at (361) 572-4200.

Jamie Grissim
01:16:46

On December 7, 1971, 16-year-old Jamie Grissim left her home in Vancouver, Washington, to catch the bus to school. Jamie attended classes but got out early because she only had two classes scheduled on that particular day. Jamie had told her foster mother that she would walk home and expected to be there around 1 PM. Jamie never made it home and was never seen or heard from again. Jamie’s family was concerned, but local police assumed she was simply a runaway. Months later, in the spring of 1972, some of Jamie’s belongings turned up strewn alongside a country road in rural Clark County, Washington. Then, as the years wore on, more young women began to disappear from the area, and it became apparent that this was much more serious than a teenager who had run away from home.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Jamie Grissim or the other unsolved cases we discussed in this episode, please contact the Clark County Sheriff’s Office at 564-397-2211.

Ever Orozco
00:52:24

On December 25, 2017, 28-year-old Ever Orozco left his sister's home in Weld County, Colorado, headed for New Mexico with his girlfriend. They had planned to pack up their belongings and move back to Colorado to start a new life away from the shady characters that had surrounded Ever's life for the past few years. But Ever never made it back to start that new life and wouldn't be seen or heard from again. In fact, leads dried up quickly after he vanished. When he was found deceased at the top of a mountain nearly three years later, his family and law enforcement were left with very few clues but no shortage of questions.

If you have any information about the disappearance and death of Ever Orozco, please call the Weld County Sheriff's Office at (970) 400-2836 or the Cibola County Sheriff's Office at (505) 876-2040.

Patrick Chapman
01:20:40

34-year-old Patrick Chapman was last seen on Mother's Day of 2020. He texted his mom, sister, and ex-wife to wish them a happy Mother's Day. Later that day, Patrick stopped by his ex-wife's house in St. Charles, Missouri. Then, Patrick made the nearly 3 hour trip to Mill Spring, Missouri, where he planned to stay with the family of a woman he had recently been dating. They claimed that Patrick seemed to be acting strange that night, and by the following morning, Patrick and his vehicle were gone. It would be several more weeks before Patrick's friends and family learned anything was amiss, after the last people to see Patrick reported him missing. What has occurred since that time has been a bizarre string of events, and Patrick's loved ones have been trying to put all of the puzzle pieces together in order to find him.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Patrick Chapman, please contact Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop E at (573) 609-4439 or the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at 573-224-3219.

Julianne Jaillet
01:03:00

On June 18, 1985, a man walked into the Bellevue Police Department in Washington to report his 36-year-old wife, Julianne Jaillet, missing. He couldn't recall exactly when he'd last seen her but thought it might have been at the end of May or the beginning of June. He told police that he and his wife of five months had gotten into an argument, and she said she was leaving him, packed her belongings, and walked out. When asked why he hadn't reported Julianne missing in over two weeks, he said he thought she'd come back, that she'd been known to leave for a few days in the past, but never for this long. Things took a strange twist when some of Julianne's belongings were found in a hotel several states away. More than 36 years later, what happened to Julianne remains a mystery.

If you have any information about Julianne's disappearance, please call the Bellevue Police Department at 425-452-6917.

Shelton Sanders
01:07:24

25-year-old Shelton Sanders had everything going for him. He was about to graduate from the University of South Carolina in the coming months. Shelton had big career aspirations and the talent to match. At the time, Shelton lived with his family in Rembert, SC, and would make the 45-minute commute back and forth to school and work in Columbia each day. On June 19th, 2001, Shelton left home to attend classes and work his part-time job at the university. After work, Shelton and a friend were looking at hotels for a friend’s upcoming bachelor party. Shelton was supposed to be the best man at the wedding. The two went to three different hotels, and the friend said that Shelton dropped him off at his home and then left to drive back home to Rembert. After that, it was like Shelton and the vehicle he was driving vanished into thin air. By the following day, Shelton’s family was alarmed when they realized he hadn’t made it home. This was not like Shelton. Concerns quickly turned to the possibility of an accident during Shelton’s commute home late at night. But nearly two years later, after discovering the car Shelton was driving, this case took a completely different turn.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Shelton Sanders, please contact the Richland County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 576-3000 or the Shelton Sanders information hotline at (803) 427-4209. There is currently a $25,000 reward being offered.

Lonene Rogers
01:04:37

29-year-old Lonene Rogers, or Lonnie, spent January 6, 1981, working as a maid at a hotel. Afterward, she stopped by the babysitter's house to pick up her two young children. Lonnie made it back to her house in Hayfield Township, Pennsylvania. That evening, Lonnie's husband claims that the two had argued. His story was that he last saw Lonnie around 12:45 AM when he went to bed. He awoke in the early morning hours of January 7 to find that Lonnie was gone. Missing along with Lonnie was her coat, jeans, and boots. Other essential items were left behind at the house, including her car, keys, and purse. But this wasn't a night that someone would choose to walk away from their home or take a casual stroll around the neighborhood. It was freezing cold, and a storm blanketed the area with snow. What could have happened to Lonnie? Lonnie is still missing more than 40 years later, and her case remains unsolved.

Any persons with information regarding Lonnie's disappearance are urged to call Pennsylvania State Police at (814)-332-6911, TTY/TDD (814)-724-2985, or anonymously contact the Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4PA-TIPS (8477) or online at https://www.p3tips.com/tipform.aspx?ID=107.

Steven "Keith" Roberson
01:09:26

26-year-old Keith Roberson worked as an oil field flowback supervisor outside Ozona, Texas. In early September 2018, Keith Roberson's mother received a phone call she wasn't expecting. Keith had not shown up for work, which was out of character. Keith's mom made her way to Ozona to begin searching for her son. She learned that on the evening of September 5, Keith had been driving eastbound on Interstate 10, a long stretch of highway that crosses the entire continental United States. Keith was in a vast, desolate area in between many tiny Texas towns, nearest the city of Sonora, when his car crossed the median to the westbound side, struck an oncoming vehicle, and ended up off the westbound side of the road. But when police arrived, Keith wasn't in his vehicle. No one has seen or heard from Keith since.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Steven "Keith" Roberson, please contact the Texas Department of Public Safety. You can reach them online at iwatchtx.org or call them at 1-844-643-2251. Keith's mother, Sharmon, is offering a $15,000 reward to anyone who can find Keith.

Melanie Meleney
01:03:44

On Thursday, October 11, 2018, Melanie Meleney went out to a nail salon with a girlfriend. Her friend dropped Melanie off, and surveillance cameras at the Chesapeake Glen Apartments in Glen Burnie, Maryland, captured Melanie walking into the building where she shared an apartment with her boyfriend. Melanie was never seen exiting the apartment building. However, the cameras didn’t capture high-quality images, and they couldn’t see people coming and going after dark. Melanie’s friends tried to reach her the following day but were unsuccessful. Melanie failed to show up for work on Friday evening, which was out of character. By Saturday, her friends were alarmed and decided to report Melanie missing. That was just the beginning of this long nightmare for Melanie’s loved ones.

If you have any information about the disappearance and death of Melanie Meleney, please contact the Anne Arundel County Police Department at (410) 222-4731, or you can submit an anonymous tip at (410) 222-4700.

Mark Brunelle
01:08:48

Mark Brunelle disappeared from Bellingham, Massachusetts, on February 23, 2021. Mark left home to do laundry and never returned. Mark's family quickly jumped into action to try to find him. His truck was later found at a storage facility that Mark rented, and things started to become strange. Nearly three months later, a group of kayakers found Mark's body in the Blackstone River in the nearby town of Uxbridge, several miles west of his home. But finding Mark was not the end of this mystery because the injuries to his body have left his family with more questions than answers. We have followed Mark's story from the time he went missing until now, and it only became more bizarre each step of the way. 

If you have any information about the death of Mark Brunelle, please call the Massachusetts State Police at 508-820-2300.

Case Update: Johnthan Hall
01:30:17

We first brought you the story of Johnthan Hall just over two years ago in December 2019. On Wednesday, February 13, 2019, 30-year-old Johnthan Hall went to work with his dad. The two worked together at a maintenance job in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the end of the day, his father dropped him off at home. Johnthan then left for his second job at a local billiards club not too far away. Johnthan was seen at the club that night around 7:30 PM. No one knows precisely when Johnthan left or where he may have gone. Missing along with Johnthan were the items he always carried with him in his backpack.

Frustratingly, Johnthan is still missing today, but there has been one major turn of events that reignited John's case. In October of 2020, someone very close to John was arrested by Las Vegas police and accused of stabbing three people. Two of those victims died, and one survived. This was a person that some of John's family members had suspicions about in the original episode, but they were under the impression that he had been ruled out. Investigators told John's family in 2019 that they didn't think this person was capable of murder. But now, they aren't sure what to think. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Johnthan Hall, please call the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department at 702-828-3111.

Stephen Millis Part 4: The Darker Side of Hesperia
01:35:55

49-year-old Steve Millis disappeared from Hesperia, Michigan, on January 4, 2019. On the surface, it just seemed that Steve went to the store to buy some cat food and disappeared off of the face of the earth, but things weren't that simple. When investigators began looking into this, they were thrust into the dark underbelly of the drug world. They were trying to build a case, and each person was leading them to someone else. It felt like they were getting closer and closer to the truth, but each story was shaky. The storytellers were unreliable. They all seemed to be lying about something or had something to gain from pointing to the next person in line. Through it all, they did seem to be getting some consistent threads. Sometimes there is a bit of truth in every rumor.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Steve Millis, please contact the Newaygo County Sheriff's Office at (231) 689-7303.

Last week, we brought you the first two installments of Steve Millis’ story. We explored Steve’s life, the night he disappeared, and several people who were rumored to be involved in his disappearance and had some sort of motive. In today’s episode, titled “Family Ties,” we are going to pick up where we left off with Teresa and how her stories tie back to some of Steve’s own family members. You see, there have been consistent stories about one person that you heard from in Part 1, one of the last known people to see Steve alive. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Steve Millis, please contact the Newaygo County Sheriff's Office at (231) 689-7303.

Stephen Millis Part 2: Motives
01:11:44

Yesterday, we brought you Part 1 of Steve Millis’ story. We explored how his family realized that he had disappeared, Steve’s life, and what we know about the evening he was last seen alive. Today, we will take a look at several people who were suspected of being involved in Steve’s disappearance. You will learn that everyone has secrets of their own, making it very difficult to tell who is hiding information about Steve and who is simply hiding their own secrets. Things become murky, and no one seems to be telling the whole truth about where they were and what they were doing when Steve Millis disappeared.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Steve Millis, please contact the Newaygo County Sheriff's Office at (231) 689-7303.

Stephen Millis Part 1: The Meeting
01:12:28

On January 4, 2019, Steve Millis spent some time at his nephew's home before making a quick trip to a dollar store in Hesperia, Michigan. Steve was seen on video surveillance entering the store at 6:40 PM. At 6:47, Steve walked up to the counter and purchased a few cans of cat food. He smiled at the clerk, and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. A minute later, Steve exited the store and disappeared into the night. 

The Newaygo County Sheriff's Office began investigating Steve's disappearance. What they uncovered was a tangled web of stories about what happened to Steve and why. They conducted hundreds of hours of interviews and executed many search warrants, but what happened to Steve Millis remains a mystery.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Steve Millis, please contact the Newaygo County Sheriff's Office at (231) 689-7303.

James Foster Chance
01:12:38

At the beginning of 2021, James Foster Chance disappeared from Grapevine, Texas. No one knows exactly when James was last seen. It's believed he disappeared sometime between January and March. During that time, Texas experienced a record setting winter storm, leaving most of the state without power for days. It was during this storm that it appears that James made a mysterious trip. James' family was alerted by his landlord that something was amiss. That was when they began piecing together his last movements. What they discovered left them with more questions than answers. This is a story that will leave you questioning how much you can really ever know someone. Do people only show you the side of themselves that they want you to see? What could even your closest loved ones be hiding from you?

If you have any information about the disappearance of James Foster Chance, please call the Grapevine Police Department at 817-470-8127 or send them an email at cidmail@grapevinetexas.gov.

Case Update: Johnathan Hamilton
01:48:37

We first aired Johnathan Hamilton's story in a two-part series in October of 2017. At the time, we left off with Johnathan's case considered suspended. The Bastrop Police Department believed that they had run down all of the leads, and there was nothing else left to investigate. They believed that Johnathan wasn't in Bastrop. Investigators told Angie that Johnathan wanted to leave his life behind, he was capable, and likely getting insulin from charity programs. Johnathan's mother, Angie, persisted and never gave up fighting for her son. Something didn't seem right about this. She didn't think Johnathan would have left for this long without contact, and she didn't have a single shred of proof that he ever left the town of Bastrop. In the end, Angie was right. Jonathan wasn't living on the streets of Austin, he hadn't made it to Mexico, he wasn't getting insulin from a charity. Something did happen to Johnathan Hamilton in Bastrop, Texas. Four years after Johnathan disappeared, a man swimming at a park in Bastrop made a gruesome discovery, which shifted the focus of this case right back to Bastrop, Texas, and that night back in May of 2015 when this all began.

If you have any information regarding the death of Johnathan Hamilton, please contact the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office at (512) 549-5100. You can follow Angie’s quest for answers on Facebook at Justice for Johnathan Lee Hamilton.

Pamela Callahan
00:54:11

On March 6, 2006, the fire department was called out to the Melrose Apartments in Concord, North Carolina. There was a fire inside one of the units. After firefighters extinguished the blaze, they looked to see if anyone was injured or deceased inside. They found no trace of anyone inside the apartment. They learned that the apartment was leased to 43-year-old Pamela Callahan, and no one could find Pamela anywhere. The fire was later determined to be arson. This was just the beginning of the nightmare for Pamela’s family, and more than 15 years later, what happened to Pamela Callahan remains a mystery. 

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Pamela Callahan, please contact the Concord Police Department at (704) 786-9155.

Case Update: Emily Noble Part 1
01:51:58

We first brought you Emily Noble's story on September 21, 2020. Emily disappeared after spending the evening of May 24, 2020, celebrating her birthday with her husband. They stopped at several restaurants in a popular part of Westerville, Ohio. They then made their way home for the evening. Emily's husband claimed that they went to bed, and during the night, he got up to use the restroom and then went back to sleep in a guest room, not wanting to disturb Emily. When he awoke later that morning, Emily was gone, and her wallet, phone, keys, and car were still at the residence. Emily's disappearance captivated the local community, and rumors swirled from day one. Days before we were due to air Emily's story in 2020, human remains were located not far from her condo. The day after we aired Emily's episode, the Westerville Police Department held a press conference confirming the identification of Emily's remains. On June 17, 2021, her husband Matt was arrested and charged with her murder. In this special two-part update on Emily Noble, we will explore what happened after the original episode aired and what we know today about what happened to Emily.

Marialice Clark
01:15:02

In August of 1972, 14-year-old Marialice Clark disappeared from Omaha, Nebraska. She had left to visit a friend who lived in the neighborhood but never returned. There isn't much known about the disappearance of Marialice Clark, but if you search for information online, you will find her name tied to the controversial conviction of two men who were affiliated with the Black Panther Party and an anti-fascist political group. When Marialice was just 12-years-old, she was named in a federal ATF affidavit as having reportedly seen a large collection of foreign-made firearms and explosives, which she described in intricate detail. How would a young pre-teen know so much about weapons and explosives and to call the ATF? After Marialice disappeared, her name was almost entirely erased from existence for the next 50 years. Fifteen months ago, we set out to try to find any trace of Marialce that we could possibly uncover.

Jason Landry
01:18:14

21-year-old Jason Landry disappeared on December 13, 2020. Jason had just completed his first semester at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. He was making the nearly 3-hour drive to his family's home in Missouri City, Texas, for the holidays. It's believed that Jason left around 10:55 PM that night. Around 12:30 AM, a volunteer firefighter discovered Jason's car crashed on a dark, desolate road just outside of Luling, Texas. Luling was along Jason's route home. Jason's parents were jolted awake that night when the phone rang. An officer from the Texas Highway Patrol was on the other line, informing them that they had found their son's car crashed, but there was no sign of Jason at the scene. That was the beginning of this nightmare for the Landry family, and more than ten months later, they are still searching for answers.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Jason Landry, please call the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office at 512-398-6777 extension 4516.

Eric's case had gone cold until last year when his car was suddenly found. However, that wasn't the only surprising turn of events in Eric's case. Today you will hear the rest of the tale that spans from a possibly faked death, to an airplane in Mississippi, and an investigation that found its way to Florida and back to Michigan. Eric's disappearance has never truly been dormant because every time investigators think they've found an answer, another turn of events changes everything.

Eric Franks Part 1: The Plot Twist
00:56:18

In March of 2011, 38-year-old Eric Franks disappeared from Saginaw, Michigan. The circumstances of Eric's disappearance were strange, and suspicious figures surrounded the case from the beginning. A unique series of events seemed to protect the suspicious figures. Despite a thorough investigation and execution of many search warrants, law enforcement struggled to come up with anything tangible. It was a frustrating case that went cold over the years. Then, in September of 2020, Eric's car was found after being hidden away in a garage for many years. With this significant development, Eric's cold case suddenly came screaming back to life.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Eric Franks you are asked to call the Michigan State Police at 989-495-5555.

Case Update: Ebby Steppach
01:25:48

We first brought you Ebby's story back in March of 2017. Ebby's mom, Laurie, told us about her frustrating journey to have her daughter's case investigated properly. At the end of our original episode, there was a new team looking into her disappearance. Laurie was hopeful. A little over a year later, there would be a major break in the case when detective Tommy Hudson decided to search areas of the park where Ebby's car had been found. Areas that her family had been told were searched previously. That was when they discovered Ebby's remains just 60 feet from where her car had been found. In this update, Laurie is joining us again to discuss how Ebby was found and where her case stands today. 

If you have any information about the disappearance and murder of Ebby Steppach, please call the Little Rock Police Department at (501) 404-3128.

9-year-old Bob Boyes disappeared from Port Republic, Maryland, on December 26, 1968, the day after Christmas. Bob and his brothers had gone to a neighbors' home to show off their new toys. Bob's brothers left the friends' home, but Bob stayed behind. Bob later left to walk home, accompanied by his pet deer, Pete. But according to Bob's parents, he never made it home, and his pet deer later returned without Bob. Nearly 53 years have passed since that chilly winter day that Bob disappeared, but many of his remaining family members still hope that someone will crack this cold case.

Case Update: Carolyn Riggins Part 1
01:44:22

Last fall, we brought you the story of 69-year-old Carolyn Riggins. In July of 2020, after a successful night at her favorite bingo hall just a few miles from her Fort Worth, Texas home, Carolyn had disappeared. Just weeks before we originally aired her story, Carolyn’s remains were found inside the backseat of her car in a deeply wooded, remote part of far north Texas. This area was a place so rural, that it is almost completely inaccessible without detailed knowledge of the area. The discovery of Carolyn’s vehicle and body under such mysterious and unexplained circumstances troubled Carolyn’s family, especially with some of the rumors that swirled around the community from the time she disappeared and even after she was found. This week, we will explore some of the stranger aspects that have developed since we first aired Carolyn’s story nearly a year ago.

On January 21, 2020, Dorothy Yates-McCathran disappeared from her home in Vivian, Louisiana. According to Dorothy’s husband, Kevan, he saw her that day at their home, and then he left to look at a job. When he returned a couple of hours later, he couldn’t find Dorothy. However, he found a strange scene inside the house, a television remote control partially melted on the woodstove. Upon further inspection, he noticed plastic and other material burning inside the stove. There were clothes scattered around, and it looked as though perhaps someone had left in a hurry. More than a year and a half later, her family feels like they are no closer to finding out what happened and are hoping that someone will come forward with a new lead.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Dorothy Yates-McCathran, please call the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office at (318) 675-2170.

Case Update: Ritchie Collins
01:25:41

58-year-old Ritchie Collins went missing in early 2019. The exact date of his disappearance is unknown. A neighbor reported seeing Ritchie at his home in Bellingham, WA, but that exact date is fuzzy. However, he had not texted or spoken to friends or family members since March of 2019. Ritchie has been described by those who knew him best as a loner, so it would not be uncommon for a few days or even weeks to go by without hearing from him. Ritchie's family had been trying to get ahold of him for weeks. Then on April 30, 2019, Ritchie's car was found parked at the Colonial Creek Campground at North Cascades National Park. The keys to his car had been placed on top of the vehicle. According to a park ranger, the vehicle had been there for weeks. 

We first brought you Ritchie's story in March of 2020. When we left off at the end of that episode, there were so many questions left unanswered. Over the July 4th weekend of 2021, some children playing at a camp area several miles from where Ritchie's car was found discovered the first clue that would help find Ritchie. 

Ritchie's daughter graciously joined us to give us an update on what has transpired and where her dad's case stands today.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance and death of Ritchie Collins, please contact Detective Ken Gates at 360-778-6613 or contact the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office directly at 360-778-6600.

Michael McKenney
01:14:29

28-year-old Michael McKenney disappeared on May 22, 2020. At the time, Michael had been living with his aunt’s family in Fairfield Township, Ohio. He left that day with some of his belongings and then disappeared. Michael’s family became alarmed when they couldn’t reach him. About a week later, Michael’s car was found abandoned at Hueston Woods State Park, a place Michael was known to frequent. Most of Michael’s belongings were left behind. However, his wallet and keys were also missing. Extensive searches of the park have been conducted, but no trace of Michael has ever been found. More than 15 months have passed since Michael was last seen, and his family has heard stories about what happened to him, but just as with every other case, it’s hard to know if any of the stories are true.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Michael McKenney, please contact the Fairfield Township Police Department at 513-887-4406.

Robert Smith
00:55:53

On October 25, 2000, 16-year-old Robert Smith left his East Chicago, Indiana home and told his mom that he was going to a friend's house. Robert's mother had a challenging relationship with her son, as many parents of teens can relate. So when he didn't attend school the next day, she thought he was simply being rebellious and that he'd be home by the weekend. But Robert wasn't home by the weekend, and more than two decades later, he's never been seen or heard from again. With few leads and a police department who told us they have no record of Robert's case, his family wonders how his case will ever be solved.

If you have any information about Robert's disappearance, you can call the East Chicago Police Department at 219-391-8450 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.

On July 30, 1997, 35-year-old Doug Jones was finishing up some jobs before taking a family trip that he was very much looking forward to going on. Doug was a plumber who mostly worked on his own as an independent contractor. Doug and his wife, Joellen, had plans to go to Disney World with their older child the next day, leaving their infant back home in South Carolina with Doug’s parents. Doug was spotted going about his day at jobs and stores, purchasing plumbing supplies; nothing seemed amiss. Doug never made it home from work that night. His truck was later found abandoned, not far from his home in Simpsonville, South Carolina. 24-years later, Doug’s children have grown up and are now leading the search efforts to find their father.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Doug Jones, please contact the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office at 864-467-5300.

Betty Alexander
00:55:44

On April 10, 2019, 69-year-old Betty Alexander was at her apartment in Sullivan, Missouri. Nothing seemed amiss. Despite a recent visit to her deceased husband’s grave, Betty was in good spirits, excited about her grandchildren’s upcoming sports games and her regular visits with family. A few days later, her daughter knew something was wrong when Betty didn’t answer the phone, wasn’t at home, and hadn’t been to church. Without any warning at all, Betty was gone. Two years later, her daughter is continuing to carry the torch for Betty. She wants to find out exactly what happened to her mom because, as we all know, there are always clues left behind.

If you have any information about Betty’s disappearance, please call the Sullivan, Missouri Police Department at 573-468-8001.

Terri Ackerman
01:10:05

Terri Ackerman spent much of her time babysitting her two grandchildren. On Thursday, August 23rd, 2018, Terri was at her daughter’s home watching the kids. She left that evening, hugging everyone goodbye, stating she would see them again in the morning. What no one knew at the time was that this was the last time they would see Terri. When she got home, Terri called her daughter, Ambyr, to let her know that she made it to her Lochbuie, Colorado, home safely. Everything seemed fine. Later that night, she called Ambyr back again and seemed upset but didn’t go into detail. She said she wouldn’t be able to watch the kids the following day. Ambyr never heard from her mother again.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Terri Ackerman, contact the Lockbuie Police Department at (303) 659-1395.

Ian Eckles Part 3: The Broken Window
01:04:56

Ian Eckles was last seen leaving his home on May 16, 2020, headed to go hunting with a friend in the mountains of Washington. Ian never met up with his friend, and no one was able to reach him for days. This sparked a massive search that went on for weeks after Ian’s car was spotted being driven by another man. On June 14, 2020, Ian was still missing, but the man believed to be responsible for his disappearance and murder was apprehended. This man is also believed to have been involved in at least two other deaths. So who is this man, and where is Ian?

After Jorge Alcantara-Gonzalez was apprehended, he was taken directly to an interview with investigators. In Part 3, we are sharing parts of this interview with you. Tune in to hear what Alcantara claims happened and what investigators believe happened the night Ian disappeared.

Ian Eckles Part 2: The Manhunt
01:02:18

By May 23, 2020, Ian Eckles had not been seen in a week. He had plans to go hunting with a friend but never showed up at their agreed meeting location. The next day, Ian didn't report to work. Ian's family and friends launched a massive search across a vast territory encompassing the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest along the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains in Washington. They had been going for days without sleep, searching tirelessly for Ian on nothing but desperation and adrenaline. Then, Ian's silver FJ cruiser burst out of nowhere, bounding down the mountain toward them in what sounded like a horrible nightmare, but it was actually happening. Even more strange was the fact that Ian wasn't driving the car. Ian's friends had a brief altercation with the man behind the wheel, and then he took off. A chase ensued, but they lost sight of Ian's vehicle. This chance meeting with the man driving Ian's FJ Cruiser sparked a massive manhunt for an armed and dangerous fugitive.

00:52:53

41-year-old Ian Eckles spent the majority of his free time outdoors and loved to hunt. So when he and a friend made plans to spend a weekend hunting in the mountains near Liberty, Washington, nothing was out of the ordinary. However, when Ian’s friend got to the spot where they agreed to meet up in a national forest, Ian wasn’t there. In fact, there was no sign of Ian, his car, or any of his camping equipment. For more than a year, Ian’s family, friends, and law enforcement have been looking for Ian. They haven’t found him yet, but what they have uncovered is bigger than anyone could have ever anticipated.

Case Continued: Angela Mack and Thomas "Mikey" Rettew - Reasonable Doubt
01:16:15

Over the last two weeks, we’ve continued to tell you the story of the disappearances of Angela Mack and her son, Mikey. Yesterday, you heard an expert fire investigator discuss the plausibility of the theory that Angie and Mikey were burned in Clarence Krusen’s home furnace. Was it possible that their bodies were completely destroyed, leaving no physical evidence to be recovered? Today we’re bringing you the final episode in this series. We’re going to take a look at all of the other characters and moving parts in this story. In the end, we’ll leave you with a question: did Clarence Krusen kill Angela and Mikey and burn their bodies as investigators say he did? Or is there a possibility something else happened, that there is truth in many of the persistent rumors in Salem, Arkansas? Could this case have an entirely different ending and remains anything but solved?

00:41:04

Last week, we brought you two new episodes on the incredible developments in the case of Angela Mack and Thomas “Mikey” Rettew. If you haven’t listened to the original episode or the first two updates, listen to those first, they will bring you up to speed. Today, we’re taking a look at another aspect of the developments in this case, the furnace that law enforcement alleges Clarence Krusen used to dispose of Angie and Mikey. Is this theory even possible?

Case Continued: Angela Mack and Thomas "Mikey" Rettew - The Dead Man
01:09:41

In early April, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office announced that they had solved and closed the 2002 disappearances of 20-year-old Angela Mack and her son, Thomas “Mikey” Rettew. Our last episode explored the dramatic turn of events in Angela and Mikey’s mysterious disappearances since we originally aired their story in March. Today, we’re continuing our dive into this incredible, still developing story. "The Dead Man" explores who Clarence Krusen was, his criminal history, and many attempts to adopt children from struggling parents.

Case Continued: Angela Mack and Thomas "Mikey" Rettew - House of Cards
01:08:00

Three months ago, we brought you the story of the disappearance of Angela Mack and her son Thomas "Mikey" Rettew from a small town in northwest Arkansas. No one knew who had seen Angela and Mikey last or under what circumstances. Our records requests with law enforcement were ignored, and our efforts to conduct an in-depth interview with the investigator were denied. Then, in a bizarre plot twist that seemed almost stranger than fiction, the investigating agency announced that the disappearances had been solved and the case closed almost exactly one month after we aired the original episode. But is the case closed and the mystery solved? We'll let you decide.

Case Update: Chris Turner
01:25:50

23-year-old Chris Turner disappeared from Las Vegas, Nevada, in early August of 2016. We first covered Chris Turner’s case on July 5, 2017. Shortly after we aired his story, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department closed his case, stating that he had been seen alive. We brought you an update about Chris on September 1, 2017, to discuss the developments. Unfortunately, it took two years to get the case reopened. After his family submitted their DNA, they got a shocking phone call. They learned there was no possible way Chris could have been seen alive during the summer of 2017.

Amanda Grazewski
00:58:14

23-year-old Amanda Grazewski disappeared from an apartment in Derry, New Hampshire, in the early morning hours of March 17, 2020. Amanda was spending the night there along with a few other people. The others reported that they went to bed, and by the time they awoke the following morning, Amanda was gone. Strangely, all of her belongings were still there, including her bags with clothes, cell phone, and purse. Using Amanda’s phone, they contacted one of Amanda’s friends, who went to social media to see if anyone had seen or heard from Amanda. More than 14 months later, they are still searching for Amanda.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Amanda Grazewski, please contact the Derry Police Department (603) 432-6111.

Donna Gibson
00:53:06

On the evening of February 24, 1995, 32-year-old Donna Gibson was at home in Louisa, Virginia, with her husband and four young children. She was sick that evening with a respiratory infection and chose to sleep on the couch. Early the next morning, her daughter thought she saw Donna asleep and went quietly back to bed, but just several hours later, she had vanished. There was no evidence of a struggle and no sign of a break-in. However, Donna didn’t disappear without a trace, and all paths pointed her family to one person in the search for her more than 26 years later.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Donna Gibson, please call the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office at 540-967-1234.

Harry Milligan
01:21:37

On Saturday, June 30, 1984, 21-year-old Harry Milligan finished his job painting a house and met some friends at a bar called Waterworks in Albia, Iowa. The bar was just over a ten-minute drive from his home in nearby Avery, Iowa. We don’t know for sure what transpired inside the bar that night. There have been stories that Harry won a large sum of money in a card game, but this can’t be substantiated. Harry’s friends reported that later they grabbed a six-pack to go and rode around cruising. The group returned to where they had parked their cars and went their separate ways. His friends said they saw Harry drive off in the direction of his home.

The following morning, Harry’s mom was worried that he hadn’t returned home. She began calling around, but no one had seen or heard from Harry. Later, after searching the roads between Albia and Avery, his mom called the police to report Harry missing. There have been many rumors about what happened to Harry, but more than 36 years later, they are still searching for Harry.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Harry Milligan, please contact the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office at 641-932-7815

You can follow developments in Harry’s case on social media at Harry Dennis Milligan :: Still Missing .

Kristofer Couture
01:11:50

On January 27, 2019, an off-duty law enforcement officer observed an abandoned car at a popular trailhead in Chilliwack, British Columbia. The vehicle had a broken rear window, and the police later impounded it, but no one ever came forward. Several months later, the RCMP sent a notice to its registered owner, 25-year-old Kristofer Couture, a native of Alberta. By that time, it was May, and no one had seen or heard from Kristofer in over three months. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Kristofer Couture, please call the Chilliwack Royal Canadian Mounted Police at 604-792-4611. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Kacey Perry Part 2
00:51:49

On September 14, 1990, 10-year-old Kacey Perry disappeared while visiting with her father at his home in Portland, Oregon, after the two had a disagreement. In Part 1, we learned that it’s believed Kacey made it to a store blocks away from her father’s home, possibly to make a phone call to ask someone to pick her up. Witnesses spotted her at this location, and her belongings were later found at the store. It remains unclear if Kacey was picked up by someone she knew or possibly went with a stranger. In the early days of the investigation, one person close to her mom stood out. His name is Brian Keith George. Nearly a year after Kacey disappeared, he was arrested for a bank robbery and had something shocking to tell investigators.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Kacey Perry, please call the Portland Police Bureau at 503-823-0000.

Kacey Perry Part 1
00:45:15

On September 14, 1990, 10-year-old Kacey Perry was visiting with her father at his home in Portland, Oregon. That evening, the two had a disagreement during a conversation about Kacey coming to live with him full-time. Her father told Kacey to go to bed for the night, which he believed she had done. He went outside and chatted with a neighbor for a bit. When he returned, he found that Kacey was missing. Her father drove around the neighborhood but could not find Kacey. That is when he alerted the police that his daughter was missing, and the search began. No one could have guessed that more than 30 years later, they would still be searching for Kacey.

If you have any information about Kacey Perry's disappearance, please call the Portland Police Bureau at 503-823-0000.

Skylar Ware
01:17:56

On May 10, 2020, 25-year-old Skylar Ware wished his mom a happy Mother's Day. He was in Kansas City, Missouri, and she was in the process of moving to Florida, so the two didn't see each other often but kept in frequent contact. That was the last time Skylar's mother ever heard from her only child, and his posts on social media stopped soon after, leaving everyone to wonder what happened to him. Nearly a year later, with no leads, they're still wondering, and Skylar is still missing.

If you have any information about Skylar Ware's disappearance, please call the Kansas City Police Department at 816-234-5136. You may also call their TIPS hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477). Alternatively, you can contact the Jackson County, Missouri Sheriff's Office at 816-541-8017.

James Wiggins
00:45:27

In December of 2002, 21-year old James Wiggins left his home in Ruston, Louisiana, on foot, saying he was going to a nearby grocery store. James never returned home. The following morning, the owner of a convenience shop located several miles outside of Ruston found a young man sleeping at his store's doorstep. When he opened up his shop, the man came in and bought a pack of cigarettes. The owner checked the man's identification and reported to the police that he was sure it was James Wiggins. Over the years, there have been some bizarre leads that have come in. Some of these leads point to James being alive, while others point to him being the victim of foul play, but no one knows for sure.

If you have any information about the disappearance of James Wiggins, please contact the Ruston Police Department at (318) 251-8621 or you can contact Ruston Lincoln Crime Stoppers at 318-255-1111.

Kyle Fleischmann
01:13:49

On the chilly fall evening of November 8, 2007, 24-year-old Kyle Fleischmann went to dinner, drinks, and a show with friends in Charlotte, North Carolina. The evening was a celebratory affair- a friend's birthday, another friend's recent job change. However, the night didn't end on a festive note when friends went their separate ways, and Kyle seemingly vanished into the night, leaving behind only a small number of telling but mysterious clues. More than 13 years have passed, and the last sightings of Kyle include some grainy surveillance footage and the eyewitness account of a cab driver, who watched Kyle walk down the street and disappear from view, and seemingly, life.

If you have any information about Kyle Fleischmann’s disappearance, you are asked to call the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department at 704-336-7600.

Leona Kinsey Part 2
00:52:02

Leona Kinsey disappeared from La Grande, Oregon, on October 25, 1999. A friend last saw Leona at a local Walmart. According to her friend, Leona said she planned to meet a man at a nearby grocery store and then stop by her friend's house around 7 PM that night. Leona never showed up at her friend's house and was never seen again. In Part 1, we discussed the circumstances surrounding Leona's disappearance and how those close to her began pointing fingers at others. In the beginning, investigators had many people to look at, but later they began to focus on one man. The more they learned about this man, the more they began to believe he might be the one who made Leona disappear.

If you have any information about Leona Kinsey's disappearance, please call the La Grande Police Department at (541) 963-1017. You can follow Leona's case on Facebook at Finding Leona Kinsey.

According to her friend, Leona said she planned to meet someone at a nearby grocery store and then stop by her friend's house around 7 PM that night.

Veronica Reyes-Diaz
00:58:30

On Friday, January 17, 2020, Veronica Reyes-Diaz left the home she shared with her husband and three sons in Dover, Florida, to spend the evening out with friends. After gathering at a local restaurant, one of Veronica's friends dropped her off at home, and Veronica left in her own vehicle to pick up her kids from her sister's house. Veronica was seen on a neighbor's surveillance returning home with the kids. Veronica tucked her kids into bed and has never been seen again. Veronica's family tracked her steps by piecing together cell phone location data and surveillance video. Still, her family feels they are no closer to finding answers more than a year after she disappeared.

If you have any information about Veronica's disappearance, you are asked to call the Hillsborough County, Florida Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.

Angela Mack and Thomas "Mikey" Rettew
01:12:30

In 2002, 20-year-old disappeared Angela Mack disappeared from the small northern Arkansas town of Salem. It may have been September, but some people say it was later in the year. She wouldn't be reported missing for many months, or maybe even years. Her four-year-old son, Thomas "Mikey" Rettew, also vanished, but missing persons flyers note that he disappeared from Missouri and the date he was last seen is uncertain. Supposedly, there is a photo of Mikey that is date stamped well after September 1, 2002, but nobody knows for sure. In fact, no one seems to know when or where Angela and Mikey were last seen, or who was the last to see them. Today's episode brings into focus the stories of two people who appeared to simply stop existing, and it seemed as though there were never any real search efforts put forth to find them. Their loved ones hope that a renewed interest in the case will help them find out what happened to Angie and Mikey.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Angela Mack or Thomas Rettew, you are asked to call The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST or 1-800-843-5678.

UPDATE- In April of 2021, local law enforcement announced they believe they have solved the case. In their episode, we discussed a couple in Missouri who had babysat Mikey and were interested in adopting him. The man, Clarence Krusen, passed away in 2012, but his wife, Barbara Krusen, is still alive. She was given a polygraph and failed. Later, Barabara confessed that her husband had killed Angie and Mikey. She claims that he burned their remains in a furnace on their property.

Adam Castillo
01:06:44

21-year-old Adam Castillo left his Willcox, AZ home on the evening of September 13, 2008. His plans that night were to attend a party. He left his phone and wallet behind at the house. Adam caught a ride to the party that was taking place outside of town, between Willcox and Kansas Settlement, AZ, in an area that locals call "the loop." It has been reported that there were many partygoers there, and they all made it home, except Adam Castillo. The last reported sighting of Adam was around 2 am on the September 14. Law enforcement conducted extensive searches in the area where the party was held, but no trace of Adam has ever been found. Investigators interviewed numerous people who were at the party. Still, no one seems to know when Adam left or who he may have left with. Adam's family has been working to piece together the clues for the past 12 years, and they remain hopeful that someone will come forward with answers.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Adam Castillo, please contact the Cochise County Sheriff's Office at (520) 803-3280.

Sandra Crispo
01:02:43

On August 7, 2019, Massachusetts native Sandra Crispo was dropped off at her home after taking her car to the shop for repairs. The next day, she didn’t pick up the phone, and by August 9, Sandra had seemingly vanished without a trace. Her daughter went to Sandra’s home intending to drop her sons off before reporting to work and found Sandra missing. There was no one at home, and the horror of Sandra’s mysterious disappearance began. However, there were traces left behind that would tell her story and give Sandra a voice.

Michael "Zachary" Fortenberry
00:59:58

On February 9, 2020, 31-year-old Zach Fortenberry left his home in Bonney Lake, Washington. Several days later, his car was located in nearby Carbonado with the keys inside and a half a tank of gas. The car was parked near a bridge that spans the rushing Carbon River, but Zach was nowhere to be found. With no clues or leads as to what happened, Zach appeared to vanish into thin air that day, and no one has seen or heard from him since. Shady characters, odd clues, and a deep history prior to his disappearance have left Zach’s family members struggling to find answers. 

If you have any information about Zach’s disappearance, please call the Bonney Lake, Washington Police Department at 253-863-2218.

Luzeia Mathis
01:05:30

Sometime, likely in late August of 2019, 18-year-old Luzeia Mathis disappeared from her Phoenix, Arizona apartment. Luzeia was an independent young woman who lived alone, so no one immediately noticed that she was gone. Her close family members thought she was off doing all the things teens that age do and that they would hear from her soon. That was until her aunt received a phone call in September of 2019, one of those calls we all dread from the police. They were called to Luzeia's apartment due to a bad smell. Officers entered the apartment and found a horrific scene inside, but Luzeia was not there.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Luzeia Mathis, please contact the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151. You can follow Luzeia’s case on Facebook at Luzeia’s Voice.

Echo Lloyd
00:55:41

Echo Lloyd last spoke with her daughter, Kelsey, on May 9, 2020, the day before Mother’s Day. Kelsey stopped by Echo’s Edwards, Missouri home the next day to drop off flowers and a Mother’s Day card. Echo wasn’t there, and her car wasn’t in the driveway. Kelsey left the items outside for her mom when she returned home. Over the next several days, Kelsey kept trying to reach Echo, but her calls kept going straight to voicemail. Her concerns began to grow, and by the 15th, she made the trip back over to Echo’s home. Kelsey found the car was in the driveway, but there was no trace of Echo. While Kelsey was searching the house for Echo, she found Echo’s purse, her ID, and some money. Missing along with Echo was her cell phone, keys, and medications. Since that time, suspicions have focused on one person who lived near Echo’s home and had taken an unhealthy interest in her since she moved to Edwards.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Echo Llyod, you are urged to call the Missouri State Highway Patrol at (573) 526-6178.

You can follow developments in Echo’s case on Facebook at Bring Echo Home. They are currently offering a reward for information that will lead them to Echo.

Nicholas "Nico" Johnson
00:59:44

On April 14, 2016, four-year-old Nicholas “Nico” Johnson was taken from his home. He wasn’t just taken from his home, but he was taken from his family and the country in which he had been born to an entirely different nation with a different language, customs, and culture. Nico’s story is an uncommon one, with complicated twists of family courts, international law, and diplomacy that often forget the child lost in the midst.

If you have any information about Nico Johnson, please contact the San Bernardino County, California, District Attorney’s office at 909-677-0591 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.

Rosemary Rodriguez
01:18:35

On the evening of October 6, 2019, Rosemary Rodriguez went to dinner with her boyfriend and her mother. On the way home, they dropped Rosemary's mother off and headed to her boyfriend's home. According to her boyfriend, Rosemary left his residence in Longview, Texas, after a brief argument. Two days later, a colleague called Rosemary's family to tell them she hadn't been to work, something very much out of character for Rosemary. Rosemary's family immediately called the police to report her missing. More than a year has passed since Rosemary's daughters last saw their mom, and every day seems to bring more and more dread that something awful happened.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Rosemary Rodriguez, please call the Gregg County Sheriff's Office at 903-236-8400.

You can follow Rosemary's story on social media at Finding Rosemary Rodriguez.

UPDATE: On December 30, 2021, Rosemary’s bright green Chevy Sonic was found in a densely wooded area in Kilgore, Texas. Human remains were recovered inside the vehicle. DNA testing on the remains is currently pending.

UPDATE: In February of 2022, authorities confirmed that the remains found inside Rosemary’s car have been identified as those of Rosemary Rodriguez.

Case Update: Grundy County Jane Doe
01:42:36

It has been nearly two years since we shared the story of Grundy County Jane Doe, whose remains were discovered in October 1976 by a farmer in rural Seneca, Illinois. When we initially researched her story, we learned that her case was reopened by ambitious Deputy Coroner Brandon Johnson, who works in Grundy County, Illinois. At that time, the coroner’s office had recently exhumed Jane Doe and had sent a bone to a lab for DNA testing, but results had not come back from the lab. The coroner’s office considered several possibilities for identifying Jane Doe if her DNA was not matched to a profile already in the CODIS database. We spoke to Brandon again recently to hear more about what has taken place in the effort to identify Jane Doe.

If you have any information about Jane Doe’s identity or her murder, please contact Grundy County Deputy Coroner Brandon Johnson at 815-941-3359 or email him at bjohnson@grundyco.org.

You can follow Jane Doe’s story on Facebook at facebook.com/grundycountycoldcase.

Case Update: Paige Johnson
01:37:47

We initially told Paige’s story in February of 2020. Since that time, there have been many developments in her case, including the recovery of her remains and the arrest of the person suspected of seriously harming or killing her. At the time we first aired the podcast, Paige’s family was still looking for answers, distributing flyers, conducting searches, and meeting with law enforcement in the hopes of making progress in bringing Paige home. We left off with a brokenhearted family who had been forever changed by Paige’s disappearance and ten years without answers.

If you have any information about the death of Paige Johnson, please call the Covington, Kentucky Police Department at 859-292-2222.

Camille Dardanes Dotson
01:11:42

Camille Dardanes Dotson disappeared from Las Vegas, Nevada, sometime in September of 1994. While she once had a promising future, Camille had been on a downward spiral for quite some time. Unfortunately, it took months to report Camille missing, and the police didn’t seem very interested in looking for her. Camille’s mom moved to Las Vegas and began spending her free time searching for her daughter, but no one had seen Camille. Mysteriously, Camille’s missing person’s case was closed by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department months later and wasn’t reopened until the early 2000s, when a friend began seeking answers. Today, the search for what happened to Camille continues with her daughter, Ashley, who was just a young child when her mom vanished. During this renewed search, they have found was that in the lead-up to her disappearance, Camille was involved with some violent men, had ties to organized crime, and was possibly working as an informant.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Camille Dardanes Dotson, please call the Las Vegas Metro Police Department at (702) 828-3111.

You can follow developments in this case on Facebook at Camille Dardanes Dotson - Missing Person.

On May 6, 2016, 17-year-old Kianna Galvin told her sister that she was going to the park and left the family home in South Elgin, Illinois, on foot.

Her cell phone died or was shut off several hours later, and she hasn’t been seen since. Kianna’s story is one full of unanswered questions, a quest for justice, and characters whose actions remain unexplained.

Case Update: Zachary Kennedy
01:19:42

We first brought you Zachary Kennedy's story in January of 2018. Zachary disappeared from Long Beach, California, on October 22, 2017. He was at the home of an acquaintance, Scott Leo, when his phone activity suddenly stopped, and the phone powered down. Scott Leo later stated that Zachary left on foot that night, but he was never seen or heard from again. Six months after he had vanished, police made a gruesome discovery. We all thought that justice would be swift, but we were wrong. It would be two more years before charges were filed against Leo. Join us for an update with Jeff Kennedy and the family attorney, Karen Gold.

UPDATE: In March of 2022, Scott Leo was found guilty of drug charges in relation to Zachary’s death and sentenced to a maximum of 6 years and 8 months in state prison.

Roger Taylor
01:01:24

On March 10, 2019, Roger Taylor disappeared. He was at his home in Vernon, Alabama, and according to his wife, he began acting out of character. For several years, Roger had been disabled after a stroke and several other serious health problems. He wasn't known to leave home often or drive due to his limited mobility. His wife said that he left that day in their car headed across the state line into Monroe County, Mississippi. He was allegedly headed to his daughter's home. Roger texted his daughter at 9:44 PM, stating that he was lost and stuck. A couple of days after Roger disappeared, his car was found abandoned on a dead-end road in Monroe County, Mississippi. Despite extensive searches of the area, no trace of Roger Taylor has been found. Since the day Roger disappeared, suspicion swirled around those who last saw him and their stories about what occurred leading up to his disappearance. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Roger Taylor, please call the Monroe County Sheriff's Department at 662-369-2468.

UPDATE: On August 30, 2022 a Mississippi minister named James Eric Crisp went to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office in Aberdeen, Mississippi and confessed to having killed Roger. This man was mentioned in our reporting as Eric. He told law enforcement that there had been a physical altercation and he killed Roger. He told authorities that Roger’s body had been left about 10 miles west of where Roger disappeared, although his remains have not yet been located and the criminal case remains ongoing.

Joan Bernal Part 2
01:31:31

On December 9, 1988, Joan Bernal and her family were preparing to leave their home in Joliet, Illinois, and head to Texas to visit her husband’s parents for the holidays. Things didn’t go as planned, and they were only able to bring one of their children.

Viola Findley
00:51:33

Viola Findley, a 28-year-old mother of 3, was visiting family in Florida in September of 1983. After her visit, it is believed and assumed that she was making her way back home to her children in Waterloo, Iowa. However, Viola never made it home. The point in which Viola went missing is a mystery. Proper steps were not taken when Viola went missing, and the family has been hard-pressed to get answers. There has never been a proper search, and documentation of certain events in Viola's life has been lost due to natural disasters. Those who would have memories that could lead authorities in the right direction have either left this world or simply can't clearly recall the events.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Viola Findley please contact the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at 386-437-4116 or the Daytona Beach Police Department at 386-671-5100.

Jayme Bryant
01:02:44

On June 29, 2013, 25-year-old Jayme Bryant contacted several family members and let them know that he had been to the hospital on June 28 after sustaining injuries from a fall. He said that the doctors thought he could have pneumonia and told him to return the following day. Jayme told his mom that he would call her after he left the hospital, but that call never came and no one ever heard from Jayme Bryant again.

Jayme was quite a nomadic individual. He bounced around, staying with various friends and only owned a backpack full of belongings. If friends and family went a few days or even a week without hearing from him, it was not out of the norm. However, after about a week, his friends reached out to Jayme's sister to see if he had spoken to his family. When they realized that he was nowhere to be found, they filed a missing persons report. Since that time, his family has not learned much more about where Jayme Bryant may have gone or what happened to him. He has not spoken or reached out to any of his friends or family since June 2013. Jayme has seemingly disappeared into thin air. There were some rumors that he may have attended a music festival on June 30, 2013, but there has been no concrete evidence to substantiate that. 

If you have information on his whereabouts, please contact Detective Rivard of the Kalamazoo Public Safety Dept. at (269) 337-8139, the Kalamazoo County Central Dispatch at 269-488-8911, or KDPS Detective Rivard at 269-337-8094.

Emily Noble
01:22:31

On the evening of May 24, 2020, 52-year-old Emily Noble was out celebrating her birthday with her husband. They stopped at several restaurants in a popular part of Westerville, Ohio, and then made their way home for the evening. During the night, Emily’s husband got up to use the restroom and then went back to sleep in a guest room, not wanting to disturb Emily. When he woke up later that morning, Emily was gone, and her wallet, phone, keys, and car were still at the residence. Emily has not been seen since the evening she went out for her birthday, and rumors and allegations have swirled around this story from day one.

Last week, human remains were found in a wooded area not far from Emily's condo. At this time, those remains have not been identified.

On September 22, 2020, the Westerville Police Department held a press conference about the remains recovered last week. They said that the dental comparison was "consistent" with Emily Noble's dental records but that they are going to do DNA test to be sure. The DNA comparison could take some time. The autopsy is not complete, there is no news on a cause or manner of death. They also mentioned that the area was searched by authorities multiple times, at least one time with cadaver dogs. Emily's family has been notified and Matt was notified via his attorney. Our thoughts are with Emily's loved ones at this time.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Emily Noble, you are asked to call the Westerville Police Department at 614-901-6866. You may also email tips to tipline@westerville.org.


June 2021 UPDATE- On June 17, 2021, Emily Noble's husband, Matheau Moore, was arrested and charged with two counts of murder and one count of felonious assault. In a press conference, law enforcement stated that Emily had multiple facial and neck fractures. This was a clear case of homicide staged as a suicide.

Matthew Anfeldt Part 2
00:59:44

On the evening of February 28, 2019, 20-year-old Matthew Anfeldt disappeared after leaving his mom’s house in Tenino, Washington. He had spent the day with his sister and her boyfriend. The three went out bowling together earlier in the day before returning home. Videos that his sister took that day show Matthew smiling and laughing. They returned to his mom’s home, and Matthew spent more time chatting with his sister. To those who saw Matthew that day, everything seemed normal. Matthew got up to get his cell phone and never came back to his sister’s room. Within minutes, she heard sirens outside and learned that several people had witnessed Matthew’s sudden, panicked behavior nearby. Dispatchers began getting more calls about Matthew from a Speedway a couple of miles down the road. By the time they got there, Matthew had disappeared. It has now been more than 18 months since that fateful night, and no trace of Matthew has ever been found.  

If you have any information about the disappearance of Matthew Anfeldt, please contact Detective Hamilton at 360-786-5279.

On the evening of February 28, 2019, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call from a woman in Tenino, Washington stating that her neighbor, 20-year-old Matthew Anfeldt, was at her door behaving oddly. He said that his family had either been injured or killed and that someone was after him. She then observed Matthew run across her yard, jump the fence and run out onto a busy highway, causing multiple vehicles to stop or swerve to avoid hitting him. Matthew jumped on the back of a truck that was traveling west and later jumped off of the truck a couple of miles down the road where witnesses saw him. They reported that Matthew was acting paranoid and afraid inside a local Speedway in Grand Mound, Washington. After that, Matthew disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again.

Roxanne Paltauf
01:08:19

During the July 4th holiday in 2006, 18-year-old Roxanne Paltauf left home to spend a few days celebrating her anniversary with her boyfriend, a much older man with a lengthy criminal history. The couple checked into a hotel in Austin, Texas, which was the last time Roxanne was ever seen. Her boyfriend later stated that the two got into an argument, and she left with nothing but her state identification. He claimed that he looked for her prior to calling her mother the next day to inform her that Roxanne was missing. Roxanne's family immediately knew something was wrong and alerted the authorities. While all signs seemed to point to her boyfriend, another man later became a person of interest as well. Fourteen years have passed since Roxanne disappeared, and her loved ones have never given up their search for answers.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Roxanne Paltauf, you are urged to call the Austin Police Department at 512-974-5250. There is also a police homicide tip line at 512-477-3588 or the local Crimestoppers line at 512-472-8477.

Bonnie and Jeremy Dages
01:16:32

In early 1993, 18-year-old Bonnie Dages was adjusting to life being a new mom to her infant son, Jeremy. Right before Jeremy was born in December of 1992, Bonnie completed a GED course. A few months later, she took a job as a live-in nanny with a local family, which allowed her to care for Jeremy while working. From the outside, things appeared to be going well for Bonnie. On the evening of April 28, 1993, Bonnie left home with Jeremy to meet someone at a local grocery store in Brandon, Florida. They never returned home, and Bonnie's minivan was later found abandoned in the grocery store's parking lot. It has been a long 27 years since Bonnie and Jeremy were seen alive, but their family is hoping that someone out there has a clue that may help solve this case.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Bonnie and Jeremy Dages, please contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.

James "Jimmy" Tidwell

On the morning of February 15, 2012, 58-year-old Jimmy Tidwell left his place of employment after working the night shift.  His boss later called Jimmy to ask him if he wanted to come in to work some overtime but his wife answered and said Jimmy was sleeping.  Several days later, his employer called the Rusk County Sheriff’s Office to ask them to do a welfare check on Jimmy because he had missed work.  It was uncharacteristic of Jimmy to miss work without calling in.  When authorities began searching for Jimmy, they located his truck several miles from his home just outside of Mount Enterprise, Texas.  Jimmy’s eyeglasses were in the truck but his cellphone, wallet, and keys disappeared along with him.  In the eight years that have passed since Jimmy went missing, no trace of him has been found.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Jimmy Tidwell, you are asked to call the Rusk County Sheriff’s Office at 903-657-3581.

20-year-old Allyson Watterson disappeared just before Christmas in December 2019. Allyson was a young woman with her entire life ahead of her, trying to figure out what she wanted to pursue as a career path. She was last seen by her boyfriend on December 22, 2019, and his stories about that day were shaky, at best. He claims that they walked into the woods and got separated. His stories on how they got separated vary. Ben emerged from the woods the following day and Allyson was never seen again. While we were working on this story, on June 20, 2020, the remains of Allyson Watterson were found not far from where Ben said he last saw her. Though she is no longer missing, telling her story is still important. This week’s two-part series tells the story of Allyson Watterson, her love of life, the tragic loss her family has endured, and their continued search for answers.

On the morning of August 21, 1996, Dennis Appleby left his Moline, Illinois home to head to work, leaving behind his 11 year old daughter, Trudy, to spend the summer day at home. Around 9:30am, a neighbor saw Trudy with a man who appeared to be in his 20’s, with dark curly hair, wearing a baseball cap. The unidentified man was driving a silver or gray four door sedan. Dennis came home from work that evening and was surprised to find his daughter wasn’t home. He called his neighbors and some of Trudy’s friends but she wasn’t with any of them. That is when Dennis called the police to report Trudy missing. Trudy’s case went unsolved for more than 20 years but now, investigators believe they know who is responsible for Trudy’s disappearance.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Trudy Appleby, please call the Moline Police Department at 309-524-2140.

Jason Dies
01:07:08

In June of 1991, 20-year-old Jason Dies returned from Operation Desert Storm when the USS Horne docked in San Diego, California.  He was now on leave and had a month to report to a new duty station in Pensacola, Florida.  Jason never showed up and was classified as an unauthorized absentee and later a deserter.  Before Jason disappeared, he mailed some packages to his family back in Louisiana.  He phoned them and asked them not to open the packages.  The mystery of what was in the packages and what happened to Jason loomed over his family for years.  What had he sent them?  Military secrets?  Was there some kind of conspiracy?  When Jason’s younger cousin grew up, she embarked on a journey to find him.  She opened the packages and started pressing for answers.

On July 20, 2017, 30-year-old Benjamin Redfearn left his home in Farmington, New Mexico to attend his daughter’s 6th birthday party. Ben and his daughter’s mother were no longer together but they were committed to co-parenting their child together and Ben was known to be a loving father. By this time, Ben was in another relationship and his current girlfriend was unhappy about him attending the party. On the way to the party, an argument ensued and his girlfriend stopped the car and let Ben out far from the party. Ben ended up walking the rest of the way and was three hours late. Everyone at the party noticed that Ben seemed upset and had a black eye. Ben’s dad gave him a ride home after the party ended. In the car, his dad pleaded with Ben to come back to California with him, he feared for his son’s safety. Ben declined the offer but stated that he didn’t want to go back into the apartment he shared with his girlfriend. Ben got out of the car and that was the last time his dad saw him. It was after this time that Ben dropped off radar. Months later, there was a sighting of Ben but it is unclear what happened to him and his family is desperate for answers.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Benjamin Redfearn, please contact Detective Chavez with the Farmington Police Department at 505-566-2370. You can also call their tip line at 505-599-1068. If you would like to remain anonymous, you can call the San Juan County Crimestoppers at 505-334-8477.

Detective Chavez asked local law enforcement in that location to reach out to Ben and they confirmed that Ben is alive. At this point, Ben has not spoken to his family. That is all the information we have at this time. Thank you all for listening and sharing!

Ritchie Collins
01:10:22

Ritchie Collins went missing in early 2019. The exact date of his disappearance is currently unknown. A neighbor reported seeing him at his home in Bellingham, WA but the exact date on that is fuzzy. However, he had not texted anyone since March of 2019. Ritchie has been described by those who knew him best as a loner, so it would not be uncommon for a few days or even weeks to go by without hearing from him. Ritchie’s family had been trying to get ahold of him for weeks but then on April 30th, Ritchie’s car was found parked at the Colonial Creek Campground at North Cascades National Park. The keys to his car were on top of the vehicle. According to a park ranger, the vehicle had been there for weeks. 

The park where Ritchie’s car was located is filled with trails that stretch for seemingly endless miles. So far, after extensive searches, no sign of Ritchie has been found. As they began looking closer at the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Ritchie Collins, they discovered numerous bizarre clues that don't add up to any one single conclusion.

If anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of Ritchie Collins, you are urged to contact Detective Ken Gates at 360-778-6613.

Another man who she had previously dated and worked with for many years in the real estate business, he moved to another state and cut off contact with Marcie's family. Her family later learned that he had been using a fake name. Her family was also wary of her husband because she hadn't known him long and met him online.

The following day, Nieko spoke to his grandmother via telephone. Little did his family know, this would be the last time they would speak to him.

According to the note attached to the license, it had been found in Hornell, NY which is about a 20 minute drive from where Nieko and his family lived. Nieko’s family members were already concerned given the fact that they had not heard from him in a few days, receiving the license in the mail sent them into a panic.

Nieko Lisi was reported missing on October 5, 2011. It was later found out that the friend who was with Nieko around the time he went missing had allegedly been dropped off in Romulus, Michigan on October 1st by Nieko, but no one witnessed the drop off to confirm that Nieko was there.

Once police started looking deeper into the case, it was discovered that Nieko’s last cell phone ping hit a tower in Franklin, TN. He may have been spotted in that area, but there is no concrete evidence proving that this was actually him.

In the days after Nieko disappeared, his friend, Robert Knight, was questioned by police in Michigan in regards to Nieko’s whereabouts. Police took Knight to the hospital to get a psychiatric evaluation due to the behavior he was exhibiting. However, he was released the following day. But only two days after being questioned by police, Robert Knight was found dead of an apparent drug overdose.

This is just one of many mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Nieko Lisi.

If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Nieko Lisi please call 1-800-TBI-FIND.

Danny Lee Kelley
01:18:50

On May 31, 1995, 35-year-old Danny Lee Kelley disappeared from Gold Hill, Oregon. He had been staying with some friends when they called his family for help stating that he was acting strange, they thought he may need to go to the hospital. Several family members responded to the scene and witnessed Danny’s strange behavior, talking to people who weren’t there and acting paranoid. They attempted to get him in the car when he just took off running toward the Rogue River. His sister and her boyfriend chased after Danny but he was never seen or heard from again. His family has many theories on what happened to Danny from he simply drowned in the river to him staging this to disappear to Mexico. Nearly 24 years have passed since Danny disappeared and his oldest son, Shane, has renewed the efforts to find answers.

If you have any information about Danny’s disappearance, please call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office at 541-774-6800.

Lisa Prescott was last seen on August 31, 2018 at her home in Griffin Park which is located in Jonesboro, Arkansas. According to those who saw Lisa before she disappeared, it was around 6:00 PM that evening when she was spotted watching TV in her bedroom, already in her pajamas for the evening. This indicated to her niece, who was at her home at the time, that her aunt was staying in for the evening.

Lisa was experiencing some severe health problems and it is said that she would not have been able to walk 100 yards by herself. Because of these health issues, Lisa’s sister-in-law came over to check on her the following morning. When she arrived, she noticed that Lisa’s door was unlocked and that her dog had been wandering around the house unattended. This was something that was very unusual behavior for Lisa. She never left her house unlocked and, if she wasn’t home, her dog would be crated. While searching through the house Lisa’s medication, phone, keys and purse were located, but no sign of Lisa.

It has been more than 8 months since Lisa Prescott mysteriously went missing. What happened to her on August 31, 2018?

Ryan Blagojevic
00:38:40

During Easter of 2013, 37-year-old Ryan Blagojevic disappeared from the central harbor area of Portland, Maine. He had struggled with alcohol as a teen but when he suffered a severe brain injury in an accident a few years prior to his disappearance, it led to a more serious dependence on alcohol. Ryan had lived in the area for around two years— on the streets and in and out of shelters, so specifics about his life at this time are vague. What is known however, is that on the evening of March 31, 2013, he was intoxicated, kicked out of a shelter and the police were called. After they spoke with him and he went on his way — Ryan was never seen again.

If you have information about Ryan’s disappearance, please call Detective Chris Giesecke at the Portland Maine Police Dept. at (207) 874-8593.

You can follow Ryan's case on Facebook at Missing Ryan Blagojevic.

Lori Feltz
00:59:56

On December 26, 2016, 58-year-old Lori Feltz disappeared from Cynthiana, KY. When Lori was young, she was in a terrible car accident. This accident killed her younger brother, who was a passenger in the vehicle, and Lori suffered a traumatic brain injury. This accident would change the course of her life forever. Lori, as a result of this injury, had intellectual disabilities, short term memory loss, seizures and required a caregiver to help her with daily tasks and make sure she took her medication.

Around 9 AM on December 26, 2016, Lori was last seen leaving her house on Hick Hardy Road to walk up a path to go help her sister at the home next door. The path was only about 300 yards and this was a route she would walk on a regular basis for exercise. However, she never made it to see her sister. Her sister, Tricia, was expecting Lori and became concerned when she didn’t arrive but she couldn’t find Lori anywhere. Lori’s family members believe that it is possible that she became disoriented on her walk and flagged down a passing motorist to ask for a ride, but so far there have been no signs or clues to indicate what truly happened to Lori that day.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Lori Feltz please call the Kentucky State Police at 859-428-1212.

UPDATE- On September 17, 2020, the two unregistered sex offenders mentioned in Lori’s episode, Brendan Camous and Clinton Peterson, were finally apprehended. Acting on new information from Camous and Peterson, Kentucky State Police searched a wooded area on property not far from Lori’s home on September 28, 2020, and recovered human remains along with clothing. On October 6, 2020, the remains were identified as Lori Feltz.

Donald Dugger
00:48:46

43-year-old Donald Dugger was last seen in Warroad, Minnesota in the early morning hours of August 11th, 2012. Don was a trucker and had just returned to his place of employment to return the semi he was driving. His plan was to then drive his car back home. Don called his sister and explained that there were people outside of his truck and that he was concerned. She heard Donnie ask “what do you want? I am trying to cooperate.” He then told her that he was going to call 911, which he did. Police responded to the scene but the people Don had seen weren’t there. They left after speaking with Don and later returned to see him loading his personal belongings into his car from the semi. That is the last time anyone saw Donald Dugger. His car was later found abandoned on an ATV trail inside Beltrami Island State Forest.

Over six and a half years later, Donald Dugger is still missing and his case remains unsolved.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Donald Dugger, please contact the Roseau County Sheriff's Office at 218-463-1421.

01:03:23

Dennis Day is known as being one of the original Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeers. He was just 12 years old back in 1955 when he was hired to appear on the show but that was a long time ago and only a small part of Dennis’ life. Fast forward 63 years to July 15, 2018, now 76-year-old Dennis Day allegedly told his roommate that he was going to visit some friends for a few days and left on foot with his dog from his home in Phoenix, Oregon. Two days prior, Dennis’ husband, Ernie, was taken to the hospital by ambulance after a fall. Ernie suffers from some memory problems, and was unable to describe what Dennis looked like currently, who his friends were, or if he had any family. In the eight months since Dennis disappeared, his loved ones have embarked on a mission to find out what happened to him, but have been left with more questions than answers.

UPDATE- On April 4, 2019, remains were located inside Dennis Day’s home. The remains have not been identified yet.

June 6, 2019 UPDATE- The remains found back in April of 2019 have been identified as Dennis Day.

Kevin Graves
01:01:42

On July 1, 2018, 28 year old Kevin Graves went missing while spending the weekend at the Electric Forest Music Festival in Rothbury, Michigan. Kevin was attending the music festival with his girlfriend and two of their friends when an alleged argument broke out between the couple. According to those with Kevin that day, he stormed off from them while acting erratic and he was never seen or heard from again.

Kevin’s girlfriend notified the police that he was missing and she told his family that she couldn’t find him after the festival. Knowing this was unlike him, Kevin’s loved ones went into immediate action to try and find him.

What they would uncover in their investigation would be a series of strange possibilities as to what happened to Kevin that day. They have considered everything from foul play to the idea that Kevin may have joined a cult.

There is currently a $10,000 reward for information regarding his whereabouts.

Anyone with information about the disappearance of Kevin Graves is asked to call the Oakland County Sheriff's Office at (248) 858-4950 or the Michigan State Police Hart Post (231) 873-2171.
