33 Unsolved Missing-Persons Cases That Will Make You Scared To Ever Leave Your House Again


“The disappearance of Lars Mittank.

Went to Bulgaria with friends. Got in a fight and was injured so couldn’t fly back when they did.

Called his mum once they had all left saying he thought he was being followed and he was going to book a plane the next day.

Was last seen on CCTV footage heading into the airport carrying his suitcase, next thing he’s running out of the airport at full speed without his bags. He was never seen again.”



“In Italy, there’s the mystery surrounding Emanuela Orlandi‘s disappearance. She was a young girl who randomly disappeared near her house and was never found, despite many reports of her being seen in different places. It’s especially creepy if you consider that her father worked for the Vatican and the family resided in the Vatican City, but all secret service involvement was handled by the Vatican and kept under cover. Moreover, she was linked to a series of different political happenings, most notably either an involvement of the Vatican with the mafia and her father or as a pawn to free Mehmet Ali Ağca, the Turkish man who shot Pope John Paul II. Her remains were never found and people keep coming up with anonymous testimonies which have never yielded a result.”



“The Springfield Three refers to an unsolved missing persons case that began on June 7, 1992, when friends Suzanne ‘Suzie’ Streeter and Stacy McCall, and Streeter’s mother, Sherrill Levitt, went missing from Levitt’s home in Springfield, Missouri. All of their personal belongings, including cars and purses, were left behind. There were no signs of a struggle, except a broken porch light; there was also a message on the answering machine that police believe might have provided a clue about the disappearances, but it was inadvertently erased.

In 1997, Robert Craig Cox, a convicted kidnapper and robber, claimed that he knew the women had been murdered and that their bodies would never be recovered. Neither their whereabouts nor their remains have been discovered.”
