One of the biggest problems humanity faces are disappearances of people and many of us are unaware of this frightening fact. People disappear on a daily basis, and the number of people that disappear every hour is something we all need to be aware of because that could easily be someone we love or even us. We need to raise our security levels, because you can never know when thing like this could happen, and here are just some examples of unsolved disappearances which occurred in the past.
11 The Demise Of Lieutenant Mid-flight
It was the day when an unidentified flying object appeared in the sky, and soon afterward, Lieutenant Felix Moncla flew an F-89 Scorpion interceptor to examine this flying object. Always when these things happen, there is a scout whose job is to observe the aircraft or warn them about the trespassing.
The Lieutenant flew at 500km/h and the moment he reached the UFO aircraft, they suddenly vanished from the face of the Earth. There was no evidence that he crashed or landed anywhere close to the meeting point. The radars also show nothing at all since the moment they met.
10 Disappearance Of The Hippies At The Stonehenge
Stonehenge is one of the amazing places on Earth, and it used to be a holy one to the druids back in the day. There was a time once, in 1971, when a group of hippies decided to go for a picnic in the middle of the Stonehenge. Sure this was a great and excellent idea, and they all agreed to settle there for a while. While they were camping and smoking weed, a massive thunderstorm was forming right above them. Lightning struck the stones which surrounded the hippies, and the two witnesses saw a bright blue light which almost blinded them. The entire camp of the hippies completely disappeared after that lightning bolt, and there was no trace of them as if they were never there.
9 The Sisters Lyon
This is one of those disappearances when someone gets kidnapped and soon after that, the ransom is asked for. These two little girls, ages 10 and 12, went to a shopping mall and never returned. A week and a half later their family received a request for a 10.000$ payment for a safe return of their daughters. The money was left at the place which was set by the kidnappers, but nobody showed up to collect it. There was evidence of a man, who presumably took them, but in the end, it turned out to be a false lead, and the girls were never found.
8 Amelia Earhart
Amelia Earhart is one of the most famous disappearances of all times. She and her navigator were trying to fly around the equator non-stop, and during that attempt, they presumably ran out of fuel. It is assumed they crashed somewhere, but due to the thorough investigation that was conducted, there was no sign of them anywhere. They have found some pieces of their plane, but not much or any other firm evidence of their whereabouts.
7 Tara Calico
The peculiarity of this case is something that shook up a huge mass of people. Tara was riding a bike on a bike trail that day when she suddenly disappeared from the face of the earth back in 1988, in New Mexico. The investigation went nowhere, and soon it was closed, until a year afterward when there was a mysterious appearance of a photo of which Tara was tied up next to a young boy. Also, next to Tara was one of her favorite books, but that’s all of the clues there were and the investigation was still unable to advance further on.
6 Louis Le Prince
The most intriguing disappearances are those of famous people because we all think the greater effort would be put into finding prominent personalities instead of some not that much-known individuals. Louis Le Prince is a man who developed a 16-lence camera and filmed moving sequences, and all of this was done before of the works of Thomas Edison. Louis mysteriously disappears from a train and was never heard of ever again. It is presumed he committed suicide or even got assassinated.
5 Agatha Christie
One of the most famous English mystery novelists, Agatha Christie, was also a person who vanished without any clue or evidence left behind. A great search for this woman was organized with over a one thousand police officers who found absolutely nothing that will help them unravel the disappearance of this woman.
4 The Crew of the Sarah Joe
This is one of those disappearances in the sea. The crew of the boat named “Sarah Joe” completely vanished during their fishing trip because the terrible storm struck the area where they were. It was assumed they all died and drowned, but soon after that, the remnants of this ship were found on the island that is close to the area where they were fishing. After the complete search of the island, none of the crew could be found.
3 The Fandel Children
This is a disappearance of two little children that were left in the cabin in the wood by their mother. What’s interesting in this case is that, when their mother returned, she found no evidence or clue of her children, but there was a pot of boiling water as well as the food on the counter. That day was the last day they were ever seen, and even after 25 years, there was no sign of them at all.
2 The Sodder Children
One of the most horrifying things that can happen to someone is to lose your child, and the Sodder family lost five of the in one night. The thing is, their house was burnt to the ground that night, and none of the children could be found anywhere, neither their bodies could. They had ten children, and five of them were missing altogether. It is thought that a fire was only a diversion to kidnap their children. The mother and father of those children died without knowing what happened to them.
1 McStay Family
The case of McStay family and their disappearance is one of the most unusual and awkward cases there are. There is a photo evidence of them leaving their house driving in a car, but after only five days, that same car was found abandoned in the middle of the road. Of course, the authorities assumed the family staged their disappearance because there was footage of them crossing the border. Due to the unclear image of that footage, they were never able to prove that this family staged it, but it is certainly one of the most peculiar cases there is.
In the End
Here are just some examples of the most famous disappearances which happened, but you should inform yourself better about them to lead a more secure life.
All of the above could easily happen to you, and the number of people that is disappearing daily increases every year. This is just one attempt to raise some awareness of this problem in our society because surely you will only hear about only 10% of it in the media.
