Episode Date
Case Update: Zachary Kennedy
01:21:20

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.

Carolyn Riggins
01:18:16

On the evening of July 11, 2020, Carolyn Riggins left her apartment in Fort Worth, Texas, to go to her favorite bingo hall down the street. She played bingo that night, and other players reported that Carolyn won several hundred dollars. Carolyn then went to a nearby convenience store, made a few small purchases, and left. Several hours later, not long after midnight, her vehicle’s license plate was caught on camera headed north toward Oklahoma. Carolyn hasn’t been seen since she was at the convenience store, and it is unknown if she was the person driving the car when it was recorded on surveillance footage.

Roger Taylor
01:04:30

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.

Khiara Henry
01:04:31

In July of 2019, 23-year-old Khiara Henry was visiting Hawaii, enjoying a leisure trip by herself. An avid traveler and accomplished athlete, Khiara joined several tour groups for hikes and sightseeing on her vacation. On July 21, 2019, Khiara rented a car from the Kahului airport. The last confirmed sighting of Khiara was on surveillance footage at the rental agency. Less than a week later, an employee of the rental car company contacted Khiara's sister to let her know that the vehicle was found abandoned in a state park. No one has seen Khiara Henry since. This is a story with many questions and unconfirmed sightings, but none of the leads they have received have led to finding Khiara.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Khiara Henry, please call the Maui County Police Department at 808-244-6400.

Viola Findley
00:55:55

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.

You can follow Viola's case on Facebook at Finding Viola Marie Findley.

Jayme Bryant
01:04:36

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
01:23:57

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.

Matthew Anfeldt Part 2
01:02:40

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.

Matthew Anfeldt Part 1
01:00:46

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.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Matthew Anfeldt, please call the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office at 360-704-2740 or contact Detective Hamilton directly at 360-786-5279.

Roxanne Paltauf
01:13:06

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
01:17:59

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.

In May of 2020, Marina Bischoff had been working as a social worker at a children’s hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, and was known to be a reliable worker who never missed a shift. When Marina didn’t show up for work one day, her coworkers and family began looking for her. What they uncovered was a bizarre series of events that ended with Kansas City Police officers being the last people to see Marina Bischoff alive.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Marina Bischoff, please contact your local law enforcement agency or the Kansas City Police Department Missing Persons Unit at 816-234-5136 or report a tip to the TIPS hotline at 816-474-8477.

James "Jimmy" Tidwell
00:52:30

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.

Allyson Watterson Part 1
00:57:58

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.

If you have any information about the disappearance or death of Allyson Watterson, please contact your local law enforcement agency or the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2700.

On March 31, 2020, 25-year-old Kenna Harris carefully packed a backpack with her medications, a yoga mat, and some of her other favorite belongings. Kenna then headed out of the family home in Monroe, Washington. There was a bus that was supposed to take her to her shift at work that day, but Kenna didn’t go to work and told the bus driver to go on without her.

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.

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 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.

Serenity Dennard
01:23:25

Back in early 2019, 9-year-old Serenity Dennard had been living at the Black Hills Children's Home in Rockerville, South Dakota. She had been living at the home since July of 2018. Her adoptive parents had placed her there after her behavior became too difficult to manage along with their other children at home. Serenity was on track to complete a one-year residential program at the children’s home in July and return to her adoptive parents. 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.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Serenity Dennard, you are urged to call the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office at 605-394-6115. You can also call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 or 1-800-THE-LOST.

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 known 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.

You can follow Marcie’s story on social media at: Missing -Marcie Crane.

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.

Angela Gilbert
01:00:38

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.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Angela Gilbert, please call the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office at 425-388-3849.

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.

If anyone has any information regarding Mart Teague’s disappearance, please call the Statesville Police Department Violent Crimes Unit at 704-878-3535.

You can follow Marty's case on Facebook at Missing Marty Dean Teague.

UPDATE- On February 17, 2020, human remains were discovered about 50 yards from where his Jeep was found in August 2019. The remains have not been identified.

On March 3, 2020, it was announced that the remains located in February were identified as Marty Teague.

Savannah Spurlock
00:40:23

On January 4, 2019, 22-year-old Savannah Spurlock wanted a night out on the town. A few weeks prior, Savannah had given birth to twins making her a mother of 4 young children. Her mother, Ellen, could see that she needed a break so after her older children were tucked safely into their beds, Savannah went out with a girlfriend to a bar in Lexington, KY around 10pm. 

This was supposed to be a night filled with fun and a chance to cut loose. The evening didn't go as planned after Savannah and her friend got into an argument and separated. Savannah later left the bar with three men she had met that evening. Savannah called her mother via face time and let her know that everything was fine and that she would be home in a few hours. This was the last time that anyone would speak to her Savannah.

The police asked for help from the public in identifying the men that Savannah was with the night she went missing. By the end of January, all three men that Savannah interacted with on the night of her disappearance were identified and questioned. According to one of the men, David Sparks, Savannah had come back to his home with him and that she eventually left later that morning, but he did not know where she was. However, on July 10, 2019 human remains would be found at a home in Garrard County. This would be the home of David Sparks.

If you have any information regarding the death of Savannah Spurlock please call the Richmond Police department at 859-623-8911.

Update- On August 28, 2019, David Sparks was indicted for the murder of Savannah Spurlock.

Amy Sher
01:03:14

On Monday, October 14, 2002, Amy Sher left her job at the Lahey Clinic earlier than usual. On Tuesday and Wednesday she called in sick to work. And then on Thursday, October 17, her husband Robert Desmond called in sick for her and told Amy’s employer that she would not be returning to work. He called back on Friday to ask for Amy’s supervisor’s email address, stating that she was not able to send an email herself. Later, when asked by police where his wife had gone, Robert Desmond told them that he had dropped her off at a train station and that he had not seen her since but this wasn’t the first time Amy had disappeared. She fell out of sight long before that fateful October day, when her abusive husband forced her to refuse contact with her family and friends. Now Amy was actually missing, and there is no evidence Amy chose to leave.

If you have any information about Amy’s disappearance, you can call the Billerca, Massachusetts Police Department at 978-671-0900.

In September of 2017, 18-year-old Corinna Slusser went missing. In the years prior to her disappearance, the Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania native lost all interest in high school.

A few months before Corinna went missing, she had met a man by the name of Yhovanny Peguero. Yhovanny told Corinna that he would be able to help her get a place to stay in New York City. In August of 2017, Corinna picked up and went to the big apple. She only took her cell phone and ID with her. She left all of her other belongings behind. A month later, Corinna disappeared and she is believed to have been the victim of human trafficking.

Nieko Lisi
01:27:30

On September 30, 2011, 18-year-old Nieko Lisi went missing. Nieko was last seen in Addison, NY with his friend Robert Knight. Nieko and Robert went to Nieko’s uncle’s home around 2pm that afternoon. Nieko told his uncle that he and his friend were heading to Buffalo, New York to go camping. The pair were driving a pick-up truck that they claimed belonged to Robert’s grandfather, but this would later be proven to be untrue.

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.

A few days later, Nieko’s mother, Monica, got a letter in the mail that contained Nieko’s drivers license. 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.

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
00:48:34

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?

In this episode you will get to hear exclusive interviews with Lisa's family, friends and the detective investigating her case.

There is currently a $1,500 reward being offered for any information that leads to finding Lisa.

If you have any information about what happened to Lisa Prescott, please contact the Jonesboro Police Department at 870-935-5551.

You can follow Lisa's case on Facebook at Help Find Lisa Prescott.

UPDATE- Remains were recovered during a search for Lisa Prescott that took place on October 10, 2020. They were later identified as Lisa Prescott. That is all the information that we have at this time.

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. 

You can follow Lori's case on Facebook at Finding Justice for Lori.

Randy Cuddy
01:08:54

Around 11PM on August 16, 2017, 60-year-old Randy Cuddy left his residence in Apple Valley, California to head to work. Randy never made it to his place of employment and was never seen again. His car was found several weeks later in a remote area of the desert in Victorville, California. Randy’s family says that there are so many things that don’t add up about his disappearance, but the police maintain that there is no evidence that Randy met with foul play. What happened to Randy on his way to work on August 16th, 2017? Did he walk away from his life or did something far more sinister happen?

If you have any information about Randy’s disappearance, please call the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office at 760-552-6800.

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.

Dennis Day
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.

Grundy County Jane Doe
01:21:24

On October 2, 1976, a farmer and his young granddaughter were riding a tractor through the fields of Seneca, Illinois. The farmer saw what he thought to be a deer laying in a ditch and wanted to show his granddaughter. As he approached, he found a young woman, nude, her head covered in a plastic bag and a sweater. The farmer drove back home and notified authorities. Soon after, the Grundy County Sheriff’s officers arrived and found a young black woman dead of a gunshot wound to the head. Authorities tried to identify the woman but no one came forward. They were unable to match her to any missing persons reports. Six weeks later, on Thanksgiving Day, she was buried in an unmarked grave in a local cemetery. 43 years later, she remains unidentified. On this episode of The Vanished, we are taking a look at the other side of missing persons cases; the unidentified.

Jane Doe's case was re-opened last year. Deputy Coroner Brandon Johnson and Chief Coroner John Callahan join us to speak about their mission to give Jane Doe her name back.

Dale Williams
00:50:07

On May 27, 1999, 42-year-old Dale Williams, a body shop owner in Nucla, CO, got a phone call from a stranded motorist asking for assistance. Dale, being a well-liked and helpful individual, agreed to come to the aid of this stranded person. Though, this was not something he typically did in his line of work. A friend of Dale's was visiting his shop when the call came in and thought it was a woman based on the conversation.

On his way to the motorist, Dale stopped and spoke to a friend of his at a local gas station and he indicated to them what he was up to while he was out and about that day, but he never told them exactly who he was going help. This interaction is the last confirmed time anyone saw or spoke to Dale Williams.

Later, Dale’s wife called to see where her husband was. It was not unusual for Dale to lose track of time when he was focused on his work, but by the next morning and seeing no sign of Dale anywhere, his wife decided to report him missing.

Dale’s pick-up truck was found later that year in July of 1999. It was submerged in a swimming hole but there was no sign of Dale anywhere. Almost 20 years later, Dale is still missing and his case remains unsolved.

This episode features one of Dale’s daughter’s, Tonee, and his brother, Dick.

If you have any information about Dale's disappearance, please call the CBI Grand Junction office at 970-248-7500.

Peter Achermann
00:49:48

On July 24, 2009, 82-year-old Peter Achermann was last seen in Staples, Minnesota. He had left his home in Leader, MN to run errands and he was spotted shopping in town. Peter’s wife expected him to be home between 2pm - 3pm that day, but Peter never returned.

The following day, Peter’s ’95 Chevrolet Caprice station wagon was found about 10 miles from his home near a wooded area and his car looked like it was stuck in some mud. Inside of the vehicle was groceries and medication that Peter had picked up for his wife the previous day. However, the car keys and Peter’s walking cane were missing.

According to Peter’s family he was in good health and was not experiencing any type of medical issue that would cause him to be confused and wander off, nor do they believe he would have any reason to walk away from his family.

If you have any information or tips regarding the whereabouts of Peter Achermann please contact the Cass County Sheriff’s Office at (800) 450-2677 or (218) 547-1424.

Alexandria Joy Lowitzer
01:16:15

On the afternoon of April 26th, 2010, 16-year-old Alexandria Joy Lowitzer, or Ali as she was known, got off of her school bus across from her home in Spring, Texas. Ali, a sophomore at Spring High School, wanted to walk up to her new workplace, The Burger Barn. She had a paycheck to collect and she told her mom she might be able to pick up a shift that afternoon. Her mom, Jo Ann, was reluctant because Ali had only been working there a few weeks and she hadn’t walked there before. Ali pleaded with her mom until she gave in.

Two boys got off the bus with Ali and noticed she lagged behind, not walking as she usually would towards her home, but going the opposite way, out of the neighbourhood in the direction of the Burger Barn.

Ali didn't make it to The Burger Barn and was never seen or heard from again.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Ali Lowitzer, please contact the Harris County Sheriff's Office 713-221-6000.

Kathleen Mohn
00:44:52

48-year-old Kathleen Mohn was last seen at her home in the Gulph Mills section of Upper Merion Township, Pennsylvania on the evening of December 3, 1999. Kathleen had intended on spending the weekend in Levittown, Pennsylvania, just about a 40 minute drive from her home. At this time in her life, Kathleen was living with her husband, Thomas Mohn. After over 20 years of marriage, the two had become estranged and had begun openly seeing other people, but they still remained living under one roof. Kathleen had spent most weekends with her boyfriend in Levittown and this weekend in early December was no different. Her husband has said that she left the house around 9PM that evening but she never made it to her destination and her car was later found abandoned in Tullytown, PA.

For the past 19 years, the police have had one suspect in mind, but their evidence is circumstantial. What they are certain of is that Kathleen didn’t just walk away from her life, the believe that she is a homicide victim. They just need that key piece of evidence to bring her killer to justice.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Kathleen Mohn please call the Upper Merion Police Department at 610-265-3232.

Katelin Akens
00:50:34

On December 1, 2015, Katelin Michelle Akens flew across the country from her home in Arizona to visit her family in Virginia. She had been eagerly anticipating the arrival of her nephew, and wanted to see him as soon as he was born. Four days later, on December 5, 2015, 19-year-old Katelin was supposed to fly back home to Arizona, but she never boarded her flight. A few days after she disappeared, her luggage was found on the side of a Virginia road with her wallet, identification, cash, and plane ticket, but there was no sign of Katelin. On the afternoon of her disappearance, Katelin texted a couple people but they found the texts to be strange and didn't believe the messages came from Katelin. The last person to see Katelin was her former stepfather, James Branton. He says he last saw Katelin when he dropped her off at a mall several hours before her flight, but has refused to take a polygraph and law enforcement has struggled to break the encryption on his phone.

Nearly three years have passed since Katelin’s disappearance, and her family is still searching for answers.

If you have any information about Katelin Akens, please call the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office at 540-507-7102 or the FBI’s ViCAP division at 1-800-634-4097.

Thomas Profitt
00:48:42

On May 3, 2006, 45-year-old Thomas Profitt disappeared from Winchester, Kentucky. He had told his daughter, Amanda, that he was going to come visit her and his newborn granddaughter in the hospital. Thomas never made it to the hospital and was never seen or heard from again. His maroon 1997 Buick Century went missing that day along with Thomas and has never been located. Thomas was known to be a family man and had told several people how excited he was to go meet his new granddaughter. The baby had arrived about 14 weeks early, and he was so relieved that she was born healthy. His case took a strange twist when his wife told police a completely different story. She said he left saying he was going to the river and she would never see him again. We spoke to Thomas’s two daughters, Amanda and Jeanie, for this episode as well as his sister, Darlene and the detective working his case.

Michele Lyn Hundley Smith
00:44:02

At 8:30 PM on December 9th, 2001, 38 year-old mother of three, Michele Lyn Hundley Smith, told her family that she was going Christmas shopping. She left the home in Stoneville, North Carolina in her green, 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport van with the North Carolina license plate “ROK-N-ON." She was headed for Martinsville, less than 20 miles away over the border into Virginia. Going shopping at night wasn’t unusual for her, and being right before Christmas and just days before her oldest daughter’s birthday, no one thought twice about it. But at midnight that night, Michele’s husband woke up their 14 year-old daughter, Amanda, worried that her mom had not come home.

Michele never returned, and neither her, nor her van have ever been seen since.

She was worried something terrible had happened because he wouldn't have left his young daughter, Amy, behind. A couple weeks later, Joey's truck was found abandoned and trashed in the desert. The detective handling Joey's case had a hunch about who may have been responsible for his disappearance but she was never able to prove it. Eighteen years have passed and Joey's case remains unsolved.

Jerry and Susan McFalls
00:47:37

Jerry and Susan McFalls split their time between two homes that they owned. One was in Littlefield, Arizona and the other was in West Jordan, Utah. Since they were retired, they spent most of the winter months at the Arizona property. On January 11, 2018, Susan texted her daughter-in-law, Meridee, letting her know they were going to be making the trip back to Utah that weekend. Jerry and Susan never made it back and were never seen again. When no one heard from them for several days, they began trying to track them down. They realized that no one had seen them during the time they planned to be in Utah. Meridee contacted law enforcement in Arizona to go check on them. A deputy went out to their home and all of their belongings, including vehicles, were there. Music was playing outside, the television was on, it appeared as though Susan was in the middle of cooking dinner. Despite many searches, no trace of Jerry and Susan has been found.

UPDATE: On October 18, 2018, two sets of remains were located near the Virgin River Gorge. On November 1, 2018, they were able to identify one of the sets of remains as belonging to Susan McFalls. The other set of remains is still pending identification.

On January 30, 2020, it was finally announced that the other set of remains found in 2018 was identified as Jerry McFalls.

There is currently a reward of $10,000 for information regarding the whereabouts of Jerry and Susan McFalls. If you have any information, please call the Mohave County Sheriff’s Department at 928-753-0753.

The family has also set up a Facebook page: Missing Help find Susan and Jerry McFalls and a website mcfallsmystery.com that provides a timeline and links to additional information on the disappearance of Jerry and Susan McFalls.

On the evening of October 17, 2016, 16-year-old Enrique Rios disappeared after saying goodnight to his mom. The following morning, his mom received texts from his phone that she didn't think sounded like her son. Law enforcement initially suspected that Enrique had run away but then Enrique's friend disappeared too. 17-year-old Elijah Moore was last seen cashing his check on November 4, 2016.

Michael Dillard
00:39:14

On the evening of January 12, 2018, 15-year-old Michael Dillard disappeared from his home in Calvin, West Virginia. He was helping his mom carry in bags of wood pellets from the car when he ran behind the house. His mom didn’t think much of it at first but when she finished carrying the rest of the bags in and couldn’t find Michael, she became concerned. She called family for help and then alerted the authorities. The weather quickly turned that evening as a storm rolled into the area, first bringing rain and then snow. That storm made searching for Michael very difficult that night. Many searches were conducted in the weeks and months that followed Michael’s disappearance but the only item that was ever found was a jacket. Since Michael went missing during the harsh winter months, they were hopeful that the spring thaw would yield some clues but Michael’s disappearance is still just as a much of a mystery as it was that stormy January night.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Michael Dillard, you can call 1-800-THE-LOST. You can also contact the West Virginia State Police at 304-872-0800. To contact the private investigator, John Bonazzo, please 304-415-8920. He is offering a $3,000 dollar reward.

Christopher Abeyta Part 1
00:48:08

7-month-old Christopher Abeyta disappeared from his crib on July 15, 1986. His family lived in a quiet neighborhood of Colorado Springs, Colorado and were in the habit of leaving their doors unlocked. No one heard anyone come in and take Christopher that night but by morning, he was gone. Panic immediately set in when no one could find the baby. They ran downstairs to find the front door left open. The investigation focused on the family for a long time but in recent years, a person of interest has been identified. Even though detectives focused so much on the family, that didn't stop the Abeyta's from searching on their own. One of Christopher's sisters, Denise, joined me for this episode.

In this first part of the story, we will go over the first 23 years of the search for Christopher. In Part 2, we will discuss the more recent developments.

Richard Hillmann
01:08:09

60-year-old Richard Hillmann disappeared after leaving a Friendsgiving party in Merlin, Oregon on November 22, 2017. Richard had plans to cook Thanksgiving dinner for some friends the following day but but by then, Richard was missing. No trace of Richard or his Toyota pick-up truck have been found. Richard's case is baffling with many different theories but not much concrete evidence.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Richard Hillman, please call the Josephine County Sheriff’s Department at 541-474-5123. To contact the private investigator, please call the tip line at 541-414-6685. If you would like to follow this case on Facebook, they have a group called The Search for Richard Hillmann. 

January 24, 2019 UPDATE from Richard's daughter:

"It's with a heavy heart that I share some sad news. Yesterday afternoon a gentleman discovered my father's truck along an embankment and partially submerged in the Rogue River, approximately 25 miles west of where he was last seen in Merlin, Oregon, in a fairly remote area. Due to the description, OSP was called to the scene where they confirmed the license plate. There is a badly decomposed body seatbelted in the driver's seat, who will likely be identified as my father. Due to the location, and limited amount of daylight remaining, the vehicle and scene were secured by OSP and left overnight to recover first thing this morning. This remains an investigation so I probably won't be able to share as much as I'd like, but wanted to at least get this piece of information out to everyone. 

Thank you for continuing to keep my father's story in your prayers and for all of the sharing on social media to make sure he didn't just fade away from people's memories. We obviously never believed we would see him again, but getting this news doesn't make the loss any easier. I guess it does provide some relief just knowing we have him now and can say our proper goodbyes. Hopefully now we can start determining exactly what happened to him. RIP Dad. "

Aaron Watkins
00:54:27
Aaron Watkins was just 18 years-old when he vanished from New Jersey on November 11, 2007. Aaron had a tough childhood going from a home with his mother and siblings into foster care and eventually being adopted by a very strict, religious family. Before he disappeared, he was struggling to figure out where he fit in this world and who he belonged with. On November 11, 2007, he made a series of phone calls to those close to him and then the Jeep he was driving was found abandoned on the Driscoll Bridge. What happened to Aaron? Did he jump that day? Did take off and start over somewhere else? Did someone make his disappearance look like a suicide?

Kelsie Schelling
00:47:03

Kelsie Schelling has been missing since February of 2013. She had recently found out that she was expecting and while she was excited to become a mom, the father of her child, Donthe Lucas, was not so thrilled. She texted an ultrasound picture to Donthe shortly before she vanished. Upon seeing the photo, he encouraged her to travel from Denver down to Pueblo to visit him. Supposedly, he had a surprise that he wanted to show her. Kelsie made the trip to Pueblo but she never made it home. She left behind a trail of text messages and her car was seen on multiple surveillance videos in the Pueblo area. Where is Kelsie and why has no one been prosecuted?


December 2017 Update: Donthe Lucas has been charged with Kelsie's murder. Read more here: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/donthe-lucas-charged-with-first-degree-murder-in-kelsie-schelling-disappearance

Lexy Anne Stacy
01:00:53
Lexy Anne Stacy was a kind-hearted and independent-thinking young woman raised by two loving parents in Colorado's eastern plains. At 21, Lexy's BFF was her mother, Cindy, and she had three years in at the Westminster Walmart, where was named Employee of the Month, was well-liked, and made easy friends. Very much her own person, Stacy's tattoo sleeves and make-up heavy aesthetic were extensions of her vibrant and cheerful personality. But Lexy's technicolor world dimmed after she met Daniel Perkins on her 21st birthday. Perkins, a self-professed erudite and ladies' man, soon wreaked havoc in the Stacy household, driving a wedge between Lexy and her parents, and eventually Lexy and her friends. In the spring of 2015, Perkins gave Lexy a laptop to pawn because he didn't have an ID. What he didn't tell her was that he'd stolen it from her friend's house. Soon, a felony warrant was issued for her arrest. Things only got worse. Despite his previous failures as a criminal, Perkins robbed a bank in late May 2015, and was swiftly arrested. Nevertheless, Lexy exploited a clerical error to spring her sweetheart from the pokey. They've been on the run ever since. Where they are is anybody's guess. In late July 2016, a Missouri woman named Sheena Cox attempted to extort $2,000 from Lexy's heartbroken parents in exchange for information on their daughter's whereabouts. Disturbingly, Sheena implied Lexy was being held against her will, but records also show Sheena has been embroiled in a variety of real estate schemes. This week's investigation traces Lexy's whereabouts to a faux-utopia called Astral Valley, where Cox and Co. masquerade as peace lovin' hippies but may very well be involved in darker dealings behind the scenes? How can two cash-poor kids travel unnoticed for so long? We explore these questions and more in this episode of The Vanished.

Donald "Donnie" Messier
00:51:01
Donald Messier is as vanished as vanished gets. The 34-year-old Vermont native was on the rebound in October 2006 following a painful divorce. On the night of Oct. 14, 2006, Donnie went to Waitsfield, to enjoy himself at another of the epic parties thrown by a longtime buddy. Those there that night say Donnie left the party by himself between midnight and 2:30 a.m. on October 15, 2006. No one has seen him or his big-red pickup since. Over the following weeks, forests were searched and waters dredged, but the mystery behind Donnie's whereabouts only deepened. After giving it their half-hearted best, Vermont State Police determined Donnie wasn't a victim of foul play, suspecting he skipped out on the only life he's known or, perhaps, killed himself in the backcountry. For the last 10 years, his family has believed otherwise. "I have heard some 'interesting' stories about how [he] just dropped off the face of the Earth with [his] truck," Donnie's father wrote on Facebook on Oct. 15, 2014. "Those responsible need to start looking over their shoulders because what goes around comes around." In this investigation, Marissa and Nathan eye the conspiracy of silence around the party Donnie went to that night, discovering that if you listen closely enough you begin hearing the secrets others have left embedded in the silence around them.

Amos Mortier Part 4
01:41:39
In this final installment of Amos Mortier's story, Vanished producer Nathan Comp gives us a peek into the evidence he says points to someone other than Big Jake Stadfeld, who police have eyed as their main suspect for the last 12 years. Former Det. Shannan Morgan, who headed the investigation into Amos's disappearance for nearly eight years, gives her reasons for fingering Stadfeld over all these years, despite the fact that nothing came from her probe. In this jaw-dropping finale to our four-part series on Amos Mortier's befuddling disappearance, you have a front-row seat to a missing person investigation run amok.

Amos Mortier: Exclusive Interview with Margie Milutinovich
00:13:41
Margie Milutinovich has searched for her son, Amos Mortier, since he went missing on Nov. 8, 2004. After questioning tracts of the investigation in the local press, Fitchburg, Wisconsin detective Shannan Sheil-Morgan all but cut Margie out of the loop. As state prosecutors launched a secret John Doe investigation into the circumstances around Amos's disappearance, Margie was left in the dark about whether anything was even being done to find her son. Her relationship with law enforcement only deteriorated over time as Margie learned important leads weren't being followed up, as people she suspected of being involved went unquestioned, and as detective Morgan herself made unprofessional comments, such as blaming the investigation for "ruining [her] marriage." A feature-length documentary film called "What Happened to Amos?" is currently in production. The documentary follows The Vanished producer Nathan Comp's decade-long effort to help Margie find the truth about her son's disappearance. Nathan has shared a lot from that effort over the last three episodes. In part four we will explore detective Morgan's theory and Nathan will unveil his findings for the first time ever. In this exclusive interview with Margie, Nathan asks Margie about her experience with law enforcement, what more could be done to find the vanished, and what her hopes are for finding her son. SIDENOTE Nathan is writing and co-producing the feature documentary, What Happened to Amos?. Directed by filmmaker Kristina Motwani, the documentary follows Nathan's quest to help Margie get the answers authorities refused to give her. The film is 40 percent complete, but it needs your help. Production costs are currently being raised via Kickstarter so the film can be finished and released next year. To date, just under $8,000 of the $30,000 goal has been raised. Please help bring this film to the big screen by contributing here at Kickstarter.com . Any amount helps and there are many cool prizes to choose from when you contribute. Contributions from listeners of The Vanished will be mentioned in the film credits, receive a personal thank-you from Nathan, as well as a framed page of his production notes from the Amos Mortier episodes.

Amos Mortier Part 1
00:37:56
Amos Mortier's friends were puzzled when he stopped returning calls the week of Nov. 8, 2004, but that was a small mystery compared to the mystery they stumbled into when they entered his unlit house in the swampy outskirts of Madison, Wisconsin. In this first installment of a special three-part series, The Vanished probes the circumstances around the 12-year-old mystery that has confounded everyone from the small town detective on up to the DEA special agent who gave the case a special assist.

Megan Foglesong
00:58:27

What happens when a young woman from Illinois returns to the small Kansas town that chewed her up and spit her out once already? Megan Foglesong was a warm and energetic girl raised in a loving two-parent home in Oneida, IL, a small Midwestern town that, with its population of 750, must have felt like a big city compared to Alden, Kansas, population 148. But sometimes its in the small towns people find the biggest problems. In Alden, Megan became BFFs with her biological mother, Pam, who was unsettlingly competitive with her daughter. Together they drank, chased men, and took selfies in the bathroom together. But it wasn't all fun and games, especially once love struck a fearful tone, spurring her hasty return home after discovering those who love you can really hurt you the most. But once the bruises healed and her heart had warmed, Megan began to miss the party down in Bleeding Kansas, so she returned to Alden, to mom, to love... to be loved. Then one day –– and no one knows what day it was –– she was gone. Poof! Lost in the prairie dust and howling wind.

UPDATE- On April 29, 2019, the man Megan had been dating at the time of her disappearance and who had been suspected of having a role in what happened to her, took his own life after he shot the Rice County Sheriff and Undersheriff. He also killed his father before turning the gun on himself.

Bradley Dale Ross II
00:31:11
In Episode 47, What Happened to Bradley?, we take you to Coliseum and State, the intersection of two boulevards in Fort Wayne where, around 10 p.m. on Nov. 19, 2004, two men were struck by a 2004 Dodge Stratus that ran a red light. The driver of the Stratus fled and has never been identified. Investigators assumed Bradley Dale Ross was behind the wheel. After all, the vehicle belonged to his fiancée, Sarah. But Bradley’s sister tells The Vanished that he would never have dropped off the grid as many believed he has, not with a child on the way. In this episode, show producer, Nathan, and The Vanished host and creator, Marissa, grapple with a timeline that doesn’t line up as neatly as it should. Things get stranger still when we called detective Cary Young and realized a missed connection may have allowed a murder to slip through the cracks.

On August 21, 1976, Andy Puglisi spent the day at a local pool, not far from his home in Lawrence, MA.  His friend, Melanie, was with him at the pool that day but left before Andy.  Andy never made it home that afternoon.  I interviewed Melanie Perkins McLaughlin for this episode.  She shared her memories of Andy and the documentary that she made about him.     Special thanks to: Melanie Perkins McLaughlin  http://www.haveyouseenandy.com Amazon link to purchase Have You Seen Andy? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001GQ3ECI HBO link to purchase the film: http://store.hbo.com/have-you-seen-andy-dvd/detail.php?p=107178
