  • 21-year-old Adam Castillo left his Willcox, AZ home on the evening of September 13, 2008. His plans that night were to attend a party. He left his phone and wallet behind at the house. Adam caught a ride to the party that was taking place outside of town, between Willcox and Kansas Settlement, AZ, in an area that locals call "the loop." It has been reported that there were many partygoers there, and they all made it home, except Adam Castillo. The last reported sighting of Adam was around 2 am on the September 14. Law enforcement conducted extensive searches in the area where the party was held, but no trace of Adam has ever been found. Investigators interviewed numerous people who were at the party. Still, no one seems to know when Adam left or who he may have left with. Adam's family has been working to piece together the clues for the past 12 years, and they remain hopeful that someone will come forward with answers.

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Adam Castillo, please contact the Cochise County Sheriff's Office at (520) 803-3280.

  • On August 7, 2019, Massachusetts native Sandra Crispo was dropped off at her home after taking her car to the shop for repairs.

Her daughter went to Sandra’s home intending to drop her sons off before reporting to work and found Sandra missing.

  • On February 9, 2020, 31-year-old Zach Fortenberry left his home in Bonney Lake, Washington. Several days later, his car was located in nearby Carbonado with the keys inside and a half a tank of gas. The car was parked near a bridge that spans the rushing Carbon River, but Zach was nowhere to be found. With no clues or leads as to what happened, Zach appeared to vanish into thin air that day, and no one has seen or heard from him since. Shady characters, odd clues, and a deep history prior to his disappearance have left Zach’s family members struggling to find answers. 

    If you have any information about Zach’s disappearance, please call the Bonney Lake, Washington Police Department at 253-863-2218.

  • Sometime, likely in late August of 2019, 18-year-old Luzeia Mathis disappeared from her Phoenix, Arizona apartment. Luzeia was an independent young woman who lived alone, so no one immediately noticed that she was gone. Her close family members thought she was off doing all the things teens that age do and that they would hear from her soon. That was until her aunt received a phone call in September of 2019, one of those calls we all dread from the police. They were called to Luzeia's apartment due to a bad smell. Officers entered the apartment and found a horrific scene inside, but Luzeia was not there.

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Luzeia Mathis, please contact the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151. You can follow Luzeia’s case on Facebook at Luzeia’s Voice.

  • Echo Lloyd last spoke with her daughter, Kelsey, on May 9, 2020, the day before Mother’s Day. Kelsey stopped by Echo’s Edwards, Missouri home the next day to drop off flowers and a Mother’s Day card. Echo wasn’t there, and her car wasn’t in the driveway. Kelsey left the items outside for her mom when she returned home. Over the next several days, Kelsey kept trying to reach Echo, but her calls kept going straight to voicemail. Her concerns began to grow, and by the 15th, she made the trip back over to Echo’s home. Kelsey found the car was in the driveway, but there was no trace of Echo. While Kelsey was searching the house for Echo, she found Echo’s purse, her ID, and some money. Missing along with Echo was her cell phone, keys, and medications. Since that time, suspicions have focused on one person who lived near Echo’s home and had taken an unhealthy interest in her since she moved to Edwards.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Echo Llyod, you are urged to call the Missouri State Highway Patrol at (573) 526-6178.

    You can follow developments in Echo’s case on Facebook at Bring Echo Home. They are currently offering a reward for information that will lead them to Echo.

  • On April 14, 2016, four-year-old Nicholas “Nico” Johnson was taken from his home. He wasn’t just taken from his home, but he was taken from his family and the country in which he had been born to an entirely different nation with a different language, customs, and culture. Nico’s story is an uncommon one, with complicated twists of family courts, international law, and diplomacy that often forget the child lost in the midst.

    If you have any information about Nico Johnson, please contact the San Bernardino County, California, District Attorney’s office at 909-677-0591 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.

  • On the evening of October 6, 2019, Rosemary Rodriguez went to dinner with her boyfriend and her mother. On the way home, they dropped Rosemary's mother off and headed to her boyfriend's home. According to her boyfriend, Rosemary left his residence in Longview, Texas, after a brief argument. Two days later, a colleague called Rosemary's family to tell them she hadn't been to work, something very much out of character for Rosemary. Rosemary's family immediately called the police to report her missing. More than a year has passed since Rosemary's daughters last saw their mom, and every day seems to bring more and more dread that something awful happened.

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Rosemary Rodriguez, please call the Gregg County Sheriff's Office at 903-236-8400.

  • It has been nearly two years since we shared the story of Grundy County Jane Doe, whose remains were discovered in October 1976 by a farmer in rural Seneca, Illinois. When we initially researched her story, we learned that her case was reopened by ambitious Deputy Coroner Brandon Johnson, who works in Grundy County, Illinois. At that time, the coroner’s office had recently exhumed Jane Doe and had sent a bone to a lab for DNA testing, but results had not come back from the lab. The coroner’s office considered several possibilities for identifying Jane Doe if her DNA was not matched to a profile already in the CODIS database. We spoke to Brandon again recently to hear more about what has taken place in the effort to identify Jane Doe.

    If you have any information about Jane Doe’s identity or her murder, please contact Grundy County Deputy Coroner Brandon Johnson at 815-941-3359 or email him at bjohnson@grundyco.org.

  • We initially told Paige’s story in February of 2020. Since that time, there have been many developments in her case, including the recovery of her remains and the arrest of the person suspected of seriously harming or killing her. At the time we first aired the podcast, Paige’s family was still looking for answers, distributing flyers, conducting searches, and meeting with law enforcement in the hopes of making progress in bringing Paige home. We left off with a brokenhearted family who had been forever changed by Paige’s disappearance and ten years without answers.

    If you have any information about the death of Paige Johnson, please call the Covington, Kentucky Police Department at 859-292-2222.

  • Camille Dardanes Dotson disappeared from Las Vegas, Nevada, sometime in September of 1994. While she once had a promising future, Camille had been on a downward spiral for quite some time. Unfortunately, it took months to report Camille missing, and the police didn’t seem very interested in looking for her. Camille’s mom moved to Las Vegas and began spending her free time searching for her daughter, but no one had seen Camille. Mysteriously, Camille’s missing person’s case was closed by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department months later and wasn’t reopened until the early 2000s, when a friend began seeking answers. Today, the search for what happened to Camille continues with her daughter, Ashley, who was just a young child when her mom vanished. During this renewed search, they have found was that in the lead-up to her disappearance, Camille was involved with some violent men, had ties to organized crime, and was possibly working as an informant.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Camille Dardanes Dotson, please call the Las Vegas Metro Police Department at (702) 828-3111.

    You can follow developments in this case on Facebook at Camille Dardanes Dotson - Missing Person.

Her cell phone died or was shut off several hours later, and she hasn’t been seen since.

  • We first brought you Zachary Kennedy's story in January of 2018. Zachary disappeared from Long Beach, California, on October 22, 2017. He was at the home of an acquaintance, Scott Leo, when his phone activity suddenly stopped, and the phone powered down. Scott Leo later stated that Zachary left on foot that night, but he was never seen or heard from again. Six months after he had vanished, police made a gruesome discovery. We all thought that justice would be swift, but we were wrong. It would be two more years before charges were filed against Leo. Join us for an update with Jeff Kennedy and the family attorney, Karen Gold.

  • On March 10, 2019, Roger Taylor disappeared. He was at his home in Vernon, Alabama, and according to his wife, he began acting out of character. For several years, Roger had been disabled after a stroke and several other serious health problems. He wasn't known to leave home often or drive due to his limited mobility. His wife said that he left that day in their car headed across the state line into Monroe County, Mississippi. He was allegedly headed to his daughter's home. Roger texted his daughter at 9:44 PM, stating that he was lost and stuck. A couple of days after Roger disappeared, his car was found abandoned on a dead-end road in Monroe County, Mississippi. Despite extensive searches of the area, no trace of Roger Taylor has been found. Since the day Roger disappeared, suspicion swirled around those who last saw him and their stories about what occurred leading up to his disappearance. 

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Roger Taylor, please call the Monroe County Sheriff's Department at 662-369-2468.

Things didn’t go as planned, and they were only able to bring one of their children. According to Joan’s husband Gil, they left the following morning, and Joan asked to be let out of the car in Oklahoma. She wanted to go back home and try to get her children from a previous relationship and bring them to Texas. Gil stated that he dropped her off near a McAlester, Oklahoma bus stop, and gave her some cash to get back to Illinois. Joan Bernal has never been seen or heard from again.
