15 People Who Disappeared Without A Trace

#15 ZEBB QUINN

Zebb Quinn is a truly bizarre case. The 20-year-old disappeared in Asheville, North Carolina on January 2, 2000 straight after friends reported that he got a page from his aunt’s phone number. His aunt denied ever paging him but told police her house was broken into around the time the page came through, and although nothing was stolen, all her things had been moved around.

Two weeks later, Zebb’s car showed up parked out the front of his mother’s workplace with a live puppy inside and a big pair of lips drawn on the window. No trace of Zebb was ever found and the case remains unsolved.

#14 ALESSIA & LIVIA SCHEPP

 Their father picked up these 6-year-old twin sisters from Switzerland from their mother’s house on January 28, 2011. The father was found dead a few days later in what appeared to be suicide, but the girls were never seen or heard from again.

#13 JURE STERK

This 72-year-old sailor always made sure to communicate with radio operators regularly during his expeditions around the world. On January 1, 2009, an Australian conversing with Sterk on a ham radio claimed communication with the sailor ceased abruptly. His sailboat Lunatic was spotted almost a month later, and it appeared to be abandoned. Then on April 30, the crew of a science vessel called the RV Roger Revelle found the boat adrift and abandoned.

#11 TERRANCE WILLIAMS

 27-year-old Terrance Williams was last seen on January 12, 2004 being arrested for driving without a license in Naples, Florida by Collier County sheriff’s deputy Steve Calkins. However, Williams never made it to the station and was never booked. Calkins claims he had a change of heart and decided to let Williams out at a local convenience store… the exact same circumstances he reported just three months earlier with Felipe Santos, who was also never seen again.

#10 MAURA MURRAY

 This 21-year-old Massachusetts nursing student had lied to several professors on February 9, 2004, claiming there had been a death in the family and that she would be absent for the next week. She then had a minor car crash against a roadside snow bank, which left her car unable to drive. A passerby pulled over and asked if she needed help, to which she said no, but the passerby called the police from the nearest payphone anyway.

When the police arrived, the car was still there but Maura was gone and there were no visible footprints or sign of a struggle. Her fiancé received a voicemail of a woman sobbing the next day, presumed to be Maura Murray. Since then, no one has heard from her.

#9 BEN CHARLES PADILLA

 Ben was a fifty-year-old licensed aircraft mechanic, flight engineer, and small airplane pilot working on a Boeing 727-223 with a helper when the plane was stolen from an airport in Angola on May 25, 2003. Apparently the control tower tried to communicate with the plane when it started crawling down the runway, but never got a response. Authorities claim Ben was at the controls and hijacked the plane himself, while other sources speculate his helper killed him and flew the plane to Somalia. The case was never solved and the plane, nor its passengers, was ever found.

#8 SNEHA ANNE PHILIP

 31-year-old Indian American physician Sneha was last seen via surveillance footage in a shop near her lower Manhattan apartment on September 10, 2001. Given her medical training, her family believes she died trying to help victims in the World Trade Centre terrorist attacks of the following day, a theory that the courts have been happy to rule as official despite never really knowing for sure.

#7 RILYA WILSON

 4-year-old Rilya Wilson was a foster child in the Florida Department of Children and Families. She was last seen in 2000, but it took the department an appalling two whole years to discover she’d gone missing and report it. This led to a huge investigation into the Florida foster care programme.

#4 CHRISTOPHER DALE FLANNERY

 Chris was a famous Australian criminal figure in the eighties, with anything from armed robbery to rape and murder under his belt. But he was mainly known for his alleged status as a hitman available for hire, supposedly responsible for numerous murders. He left his apartment in May 1985 to go meet with his employer, and has never been seen again.

#1 CONNIE CONVERSE

 Connie Converse was best known for her singer-songwriter days in New York in the fifties. In 1974 she wrote letters to all her loved ones explaining she wasn’t satisfied with her life was turning out. Then she packed all her stuff into her Volkswagen Beetle and vanished into thin air, never to be seen or heard from again.
