Yes, Carla Anderson is another memorable one. I work in a hotel, and it's irritating to no end when people leave the doors propped open. They don't think a thing about the possible ramifications of that and it's a security issue. I don't know if that was a factor in her disappearance, but it's irritating nonetheless.

I think that one and a lot of these would have been good to profile on UM and whatnot.

That reminds me of this case: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/c/cox_kelli.html. Cox was on a tour of the jail with her criminal justice class, then was unable to get her vehicle unlocked and went missing after being directed to a pay phone a block away.

A couple went missing on their first date - their car was found discovered on a lookout right off of the Colonial Parkway with their clothing, underwear and wallets:

I wonder if that last victim linked, Dena McHan, was a Herzog/Shermantine victim. She went missing in the Stockton California area where they were known to commit their crimes and a gas station attendant said he saw her being harassed by two men there right before she went missing.

Herzog and Shermantine would have been teenagers at the time of McHan's disappearance in 1981. They were known to have first committed murders in 1984 while in their late teens but I wouldn't be surprised to find out they started killing much earlier.

That's one of the theories, unfortunately her car seems to have never been located.

Lande was probably scared of what Nauss would do if she didn't see him. He had previously fired a bullet through her bedroom window and had other members of the Warlocks rape her. There's a book about Nauss and the rapes and Tinicum marsh murders that he and some of the bikers were committing: http://books.google.com/books?id=yVR...ed=0CEMQ6AEwAw

That is horrifying! My stomach was already turning at her being murdered but to think that he had her raped by members of his gang is even more gruesome. What a sick, sick man.

Here are some more cases that stuck with me.

This is another old one, going back to 1959. Boy disappears from swampy area, but he had apparently been stalked for some time.
http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...er_daniel.html

Somebody mentioned Trenny Gibson, who disappeared from the Smoky Mountains, though I think that may have been in another thread. Here's another case from somebody who disappeared from the Smoky Mountains. I don't know if she disappeared voluntarily, was kidnapped, or eventually died from the elements.
http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...on_thelma.html

Lots of theories on this one. Boy was fishing near a homeless camp, which has me worried. Yet a few different reports of him running into shady sounding people. Additionally, his mother sounds pretty suspicious herself.
http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...i_william.html

2 boys were walking from one's house to the other one's just 3 doors down and vanished in that short time.

a few more 1990 cases:

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ristopher.html

This is another one of the cases that occurred closest to me. I don't know what happened here, but there are some surprisingly very strange things that happen in the small town of Bath. The U.S.'s worst ever school mass murder took place there. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_School_disaster
On the other hand, the area is also apparently filled with quicksand like bogs and marshes, so I wonder if he died that way.

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/m/mills_johnny.html

This is a rare case in that the missing person hasn't been positively identified. Sadly, it sounds like he had a hard knock life.

This one really bothers me. A girl and a boy are on a date, he's shot and she's kidnapped. She has never been found but there's been a confession and the killer claims her body is not recoverable. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/g/gregor_ranee.html

Cases like this and Zodiac have scared me off unpopulated lovers' lanes forever!

Sounds like a manic episode in undiagnosed bipolar disorder. I think she probably succumbed to the freezing temperature.

Yes!, that one. I remember reading it a while back and thinking it would be perfect for UM.

The Charley Project allows you to view cases in several different ways, which is nice. geographical, chronological and alphabetical. Sometimes in the blogs, they will categorize by other things too.

Here is a list of the baby abductions, which are intriguing but very unfortunate. Many viewers of UM will recognize Marlene Santana, Christopher Abeyta, Carlina White and Sabrina Aisenberg, though the Carlina White case was solved recently of course.
http://charleyross.wordpress.com/201...issing-babies/

Here are a few that stand out:

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...h_melissa.html

I'm sorry, but the mom was really stupid. Who calls at 7:30 a.m. to respond to an ad? And being that the babysitter missed the first appointment, that should have sent up red flags. And the mom should have met the babysitter in person instead of letting her roommate do it. Dumb, dumb woman.

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ett_david.html

Check out the composite sketch on that one. That makes the Lester Garnier sketch look like world-class art. It looks like something a child drew in crayon. The abductor was apparently a heavy-set black woman, but this drawing depicts a friendly looking, thin Asian woman. Whoever drew this could benefit from watching Jeannie Boylan in action. Anyways, this family was really stupid as well. Not one, but TWO cases of family members letting babies go with complete strangers? Not smart. I'm also not sure how the mother can die of natural causes at age 35. Isn't natural causes the term they use when people die of old age? Anyways, the abductors were real turds, not only adbucting David, but leaving his brother to wander around the streets by himself. The diaper bag and leather folder found in Yorktown is interesting.

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/..._vinyette.html

This is a pretty baffling one. Child disappears in a building packed with people including many relatives. I'm curious why 5 and a half hours lapsed before authorities were summoned? That don't make a no sense. Plus it was 3 a.m. before they were contacted.

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/m/minor_donel.html

This is a really unfortunate one. Man posing as photographer (Sears?) steals child.

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...n_shannon.html

according to the mom, she pulled over, a man pulled up beside her and knocked her out, and when she came to, the baby was gone.

What a great thread ! Many baffling cases have been mentioned on here that I hadn't heardof before (and many I previously knew as well).

Off the top of my head, here are two cases I found intriguiging:

http://http://www.charleyproject.org...s_bernard.html

Husband and wife disappear The same day their farmhouse burnt down and their sons ashes were found inside.


http://http://www.charleyproject.org...pert_john.html


Caretaker apparently develops cabin fever and disappears...


There are many interesting cases on the Charley Project, I'll definitely post more when I think of some other ones.

those links aren't working, I think it's because you have the http:// twice. Try these:

Agreed. Here are some more:

Teen's disappearance probably linked to another case: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bell_david.html

Several other disappearances/homicides in Ireland may be linked to this one : http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ick_annie.html She's also listed on the Gardai website: http://www.garda.ie/MissingPersons/Default.aspx

Woman abducted from her job: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/g/geise_lisa.html

Strange missing children's cases: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/d/degree_asha.html
http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...d_patrick.html
http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/..._tiahease.html

His car was located near a landfill, and his house was shot at several months prior:http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...io_joseph.html

This case gets connected with disappearances/homicides of children and young adults around Staten Island http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...rio_henry.html

Investigators think this guy's disappearance is linked to the murders of two young women the same night: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ll_steven.html

It's hard to find further information about either of these: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ert_scott.html and http://charleyproject.org/cases/l/lassell_charles.html

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/l/lake_john.html His son has a website about him: http://www.johnlake.com/investigation.html

Friends couldn't locate a man at his campsite: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...n_michael.html

Daughter claims that her parents left to attend a funeral: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/..._patricia.html

Couple vanished during an ongoing dispute with their landlord: an associate of the landlord's is also missing: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ia_camden.html

^Regarding the Girous, while I can't imagine there are a lot of 17 year old girl's going around killing their parents, that daughter JoAnne does sound very suspicious.

Here's another case of somebody suspected of killing their parents. Their dogs were also never found. Nobody realized they were missing for weeks because it was around the time they usually left to go on vacation. They owned several different businesses in Spokane. I found elsewhere online that the son remodeled one of the motels shortly after they disappeared.
