Thousands of people each year go missing, and the cases of disappearances are truly discouraging when investigators have virtually nothing with which one would work — a situation in which no one saw anything, and there is no reasonable explanation. This is almost the same as if these people are literally vanished into thin air.
1. Maura Murray
Ninth February 2004 21-year-old student at the University of Massachusetts Maura Murray said by e-mail to your teachers and employers that forced to leave in connection with the death of (fictional) one of the members of her family. That evening she had an accident, smashing his car into a tree near the Vudsvila, New Hampshire. By coincidence, a couple of days earlier Maura also had an accident and broke another car.
The driver of a passing bus came up and asked Maura whether to call the police. The girl replied "no", but the driver still made the call as soon as got to the nearest phone. Ten minutes later, when the police arrived, Maura was gone.
At the scene found no signs of a struggle, so perhaps, Maura asked someone to give her a lift. The next day, the groom from Oklahoma Maura received a voice message, supposedly from her, but I heard on the other end just sobbing. Although Maura in the last days before his disappearance was behaving a little strangely, her family does not believe that she disappeared on their own.
It's been nine years, but what happened to the girl to find out it was not possible.
2. Brandon Swanson
Evening, May 14, 2008, when nineteen Brandon Swanson was returning to his hometown of Marshall, Minn., on a rural gravel road, his car flew into the ditch. Brandon called his parents and asked me to come with him. They immediately went in search of Vynaev, but could not find him. Father called him back, Brandon took the phone and said he tries to get to the nearest town of Lead. And in the middle of a conversation suddenly swore Brandon, and the connection abruptly ended.
Brandon's father tried to call back several times but got no answer and could not find her son. Police later found the car of Brandon, but could not find any of the guy or his cell phone. According to one version, he might accidentally drowned in a nearby river, but no trace of her body was found. No one knows what prompted Brandon swearing during ringing, but it was the last thing heard from him.
3. Louis Le Prince
Louis Le Prince — the famous French inventor, who was the first to capture moving images on film. Ironically, the "father of cinema," remember and as the subject of one of the most bizarre disappearances in history. September 16, 1890 Le Prince was visiting his brother in Dijon, and then went by train to Paris. When the train arrived at the destination, it turned out that Le Prince disappeared.
The last time Le Prince seen falling to his car after checking luggage. No traces of violence or anything suspicious during the trip was found, no one could remember having seen Le Prince outside his car. The windows were tightly closed, so jump off the train would be pretty difficult, but the version of suicide in general seemed unlikely, as Le Prince was going to go to America to get a patent for his new invention.
As a result of the disappearance of patent peep show (the device to show sequential photographs of movement) went to Thomas Edison. As for Le Prince, his fate remains a mystery.
4. Michael Negrete
At four in the morning of the tenth December 1999 18-year-old freshman at the University of California by the name of Michael Negrete turned off my computer — all night long he was playing video games with friends. At nine in the morning woke up his roommate and noticed that Michael is gone, but left all his belongings, including keys and wallet. He was never seen.
The most curious and the disappearance of Michael — the guy even left his shoes. Investigators have used search dogs, trying to trace the path of Michael to the bus stop, located a couple of miles from the hostel, but how could he have gone so far without shoes? Not far from the scene at 4:35 am saw only one person, but no one knows whether it is related to the disappearance of Michael. There is no reason to believe that Michael was gone on their own, but the news about the fate of Michael no more than ten years.
5. Barbara Bolick
July 18, 2007 Barbara Bolick, a 55-year-old woman from Corvallis, Montana, went hiking in the mountains with his friend Jim Ramaker, who came from California. When Jim stopped to admire the scenery, Barbara was 6-9 meters behind him, but turned back less than a minute later, he discovered that the woman had disappeared. The pursuit joined the police, but to find the woman and failed.
At first glance, the story of Jim Ramaker sounds absolutely incredible. However, he cooperated with the authorities, and, as evidence of his involvement in the disappearance of Barbara was no longer considered him a suspect. Guilty probably would have tried to come up with a better story, but do not claim that the victim simply vanished into thin air. It's been six years, but the traces of violent death and has not found any clues as to what might have happened to Barbara.
6. Michael Giron
23 August 2008 51-year-old Michael Chiron went to his farm in Happy Valley, Tennessee, planning to cut the grass on the lawn. That morning, neighbors saw Michael left the farm on his all-terrain vehicle — and that was the last time you saw him.
The next day, Michael's friends visited the farm and saw his truck parked on the road. To it was attached to the trailer, which showed a lawn mower, but the grass on the lawn remained intact. His friends returned the next day and became concerned when they saw the truck parked in the same place, which is still lying keys, cell phone and wallet.
Three days after Michael's disappearance, investigators found a single clue: all-terrain vehicle on a steep hill just a mile from his home. However, it was not clear why he was sent there. Also, do not show any signs of violence. Michael has no enemies, and any other reason to hide, so his disappearance was truly unfathomable mystery.
7. April Fabb
One of the most famous disappearances occurred in the history of Britain in Norfolk, April 8, 1969. 13-year-old schoolgirl named April Fabb left the house and went to her sister in a nearby village. She went back on the bike, and the last time she saw the driver of the truck. At 14:06 he noticed the girl was driving along a country road. And at 14:12 her bicycle was found in the middle of the field a few hundred yards from the spot where she was seen, but no trace of April was not.
Abduction seemed the most likely scenario for the disappearance of April, but the attacker would have been only six minutes to kidnap the girl and leave the scene of the crime so that no one noticed. Large-scale search for April was not given a single clue.
This case has a lot to do with the disappearance of another young girl, Janet Tate in 1978, so was considered as a possible suspect Robert Black — a notorious killer of children. However, there is no evidence to conclusively establish his involvement in the disappearance of April, so this remains an unsolved mystery, too.
8. Brian Shaffer
27-year-old medical student from the University of Ohio in the evening of the first in April 2006 went to a bar. Somewhere between 1:30 and 2:00, he mysteriously disappeared. That night he drank a lot and, after talking with his girlfriend on his cell phone, he was last seen in the company of two young women. However, no one in the bar could not recall whether he saw after that.
The most difficult question in this story, which has remained unanswered is how Brian left the bar. The footage from CCTV camera clearly shows how he went to the bar, but not on the same block was sealed as it came out! Neither friends Brian and his family do not believe that he disappeared on purpose. Three weeks earlier, he was a good student and was planning to go on vacation with his girlfriend. But if Brown was abducted or the victim of other crimes, then the attacker pulled him out of the bar, remained unnoticed by witnesses, no CCTV cameras?
9. Jason Yolkovski
The morning of June 13, 2001 19-year-old Jason Yolkovski called to work. He asked my friend to pick him up in a neighboring high school, but it never appeared.
Last time Jason saw his neighbor, for about half an hour before the scheduled meeting, when the guy was carrying garbage cans in your garage. Security cameras high school show that it did not appear there. Jason does not have any personal problems or some other reason to disappear, there is also no evidence to suggest that something could happen to him. His fate remains a mystery, and twelve years later.
In 2003, Jim and Kelly Yolkovski immortalized the name of his son, founded the project — a non-profit organization, which has become one of the most well-known funds for the families of the missing.
10. Nicole Morin
July 30, 1985 an eight-year Nicole Morin left the penthouse of his mother in Toronto. That morning, Nicole was going to go for a swim in the pool with his girlfriend. She said goodbye to her mother and left the apartment, but 15 minutes later, her friend came to see why Nicole has not yet emerged.
The disappearance of Nicole led to the convening of one of the largest police investigations in the history of Toronto, but no traces of the girl was never found. The most plausible assumption was that someone could kidnap Nicole right after she got out of the apartment, but the building, there were twenty levels, so it would be pretty hard to get her out of there unnoticed.
One of the residents said he saw Nicole relevant to the elevator, but no one saw anything or heard. Almost thirty years later, the authorities have not collected enough data to determine what happened to Nicole Morin.
