On September 26, 2018, in rural Rusk County, Texas, a Jeep was found in a single vehicle accident with no drivers or passengers in the area.

James Flint also told the police that Kim rarely drove the Jeep.  He was at work when the police called him so he drove home to check on his wife.   When James arrived home, Kim was nowhere to be found.   The area around Kim’s vehicle was searched thoroughly by multiple police agencies, dogs, drones, and other resources, but in the time since that day, no trace of Kim Flint has ever been found.

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.

Jason Dies
01:07:55

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.  

If you have any information about the disappearance of Jason Dies, please call NCIS at 850-452-4211.  You can submit a tip online at https://www.ncis.navy.mil.

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.

Ritchie Collins
01:13:20

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.

However, on the morning of February 3, 2019, she ran away from the home while staff members were distracted. She was last spotted by an incoming visitor, standing at the cattle gate near the road. Severe winter weather came through later that day, and Serenity had on snow boots, but no coat. She has never been seen again.

Marcie Crane Peterson
01:05:15

On October 30, 2003, 28-year-old Marcie Crane and her husband were staying at a hotel in Marietta, Georgia. The two had been estranged but were trying to rekindle their relationship. While her husband was out running errands, Marcie disappeared. Before she left, she gave a housekeeper the key to the room and asked her to give it to her husband. That is the last time that anyone heard from Marcie.

After her disappearance, several suspicious stories began to surface. A man who lent Marcie money had allegedly threatened her. 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 know him long and met him online. More than 16 years have passed since Marcie was last seen and her family feels like they are no closer to finding out the truth.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Marcie Crane, you are asked to call the Cobb County, Georgia Police Department at 770-499-3862.

David Lovely
00:53:30

In August of 1985, 19-year-old David Lovely and his family were moving from their home in California to Massachusetts. David’s mother and sister were driving the moving truck while David rode his maroon 1978 Model 1100 Yamaha motorcycle. Every 30 miles or so, the family would stop to check on one another. During one stop in Evanston, WY, David told his family he wanted to continue on and that he would meet up with them at the next rest stop. At some point, David stopped in Fort Bridger, WY and called his aunt from the Bingo Truck Stop to tell her that his motorcycle had broken down. He said another man, who also had a motorcycle, had helped him fix whatever the issue was. David asked to his aunt to relay this message to his family when they called her at their next stop. Sadly, this would be the last time David’s family would hear from him. Nine days later, his motorcycle was found by campers on a dirt road near Sweetwater County Airport in Rock Springs, WY, but there was no sign of David.

If you have any information in regards to the whereabouts of David Lovely please call Sweetwater County, Wyoming Sheriff's Department 307-872-6350, Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation 307-777-7181 or Huntington Beach, California Police Department 714-536-5641.

Judith Geurin
00:54:07

Judith Geurin was last seen in Sodus Point, NY in late January of 1991. Her boyfriend said that Judith had left to move to Florida but the only thing missing was Judith. She had left behind all of her belongings, even her car. The police did not have any reason to suspect foul play so Judith's case went cold for many years. There is no record of Judith accessing her finances or using her social security number after January of 1991. Years later, police began to suspect that Judith had been the victim of foul play.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Judith Guerin please call the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at 315-946-5773 or 315-946-9771.

On June 2, 2011, Angela Gilbert was walking on timber land used for logging in Granite Falls, Washington with an acquaintance named Colt White .  At some point, Colt returned without Angela. When asked about this, he allegedly said that she had continued to walk along the land near the Stillaguamish River. Unfortunately, no one ever got a chance to ask Colt more about what happened on that warm spring day walk because he disappeared shortly after Angela. Several weeks later, Colt’s body was found in the Stillaguamish River. During searches, some of Angela's belongings were found in the area but police told her family they believe the items were planted. It has been eight long years since Angela disappeared and her family believes there are more people out there who know what happened.

Marty Dean Teague
00:43:38

On July 24, 2018, Marty Teague was last seen around noon near his home in Statesville, NC. Within his home he left behind his cell phone, money and daily medication that he needed. Marty’s disappearance shook the core of his family. He was a devoted father and grandfather. He was the type of man to speak to his children every day if he was able to, so the fact that more than a year has gone by and there has been no word from Marty, his children know something bad must have happened to him.

February 3, 2013 was the last time 19-year-old Emily Hieber posted to Facebook. Prior to that date, she had frequent and consistent posts. By February 6, her phone was no longer in service. Six weeks later, on March 26, 2013, her grandfather reported Emily missing to the Yuma, Arizona Police Department after nearly two months of no contact. Emily has never been seen or heard from again. Detectives began investigating and what they uncovered was a tangled web of shady characters, shocking stories, and more questions than answers.
