  • When Howard Kley traveled to Coos Bay, Oregon, for a business trip, he left behind his wife and two adult daughters in California. They expected that this would be another routine trip for Howard. He would be gone for a few days and then return home where he belonged, but that is not what happened. 

    Late on the evening of January 26th, 1966, Howard Kley had dinner and drinks with the business associates he was traveling with. His travel companions last saw Howard speaking with a few women before they retired for the evening. By the following morning, Howard did not show up to leave with his associates, and it appears his room had not been disturbed or slept in. Howard Kley went missing without a trace.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Howard Kley, please call the Coos Bay Police Department at 541-269-8911.

  • On the evening of February 10, 2009, 42-year-old Randa Jawhari was alone at her apartment in Fenton, MI. Her parents had been by earlier that evening, and her mother had set out clothes for Randa. Later, Randa spoke to one of her sisters via telephone. That call ended around 11:30 PM. By the next morning, Randa’s mother became worried when she could not reach her, so she returned to Randa’s apartment. The clothes she had set out the night before were still there, seemingly undisturbed, but Randa was nowhere to be found. More than 15 years later, Randa’s family is still searching for answers.

  • This episode first aired on March 7, 2022. We are taking a week off to spend time with our families during the July 4th holiday, we will return with new episodes on July 8, 2024.

    On December 7, 1971, 16-year-old Jamie Grissim left her home in Vancouver, Washington, to catch the bus to school. Jamie attended classes but got out early because she only had two classes scheduled that day. Jamie told her foster mother she would walk home and expected to be there around 1 PM. Jamie never made it home and was never seen or heard from again. Jamie’s family was concerned, but local police assumed she was simply a runaway. Months later, in the spring of 1972, some of Jamie’s belongings were found strewn alongside a country road in rural Clark County, Washington. Then, as the years wore on, more young women began to disappear from the area, and it became apparent that this was much more serious than a teenager who had run away from home.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Jamie Grissim or the other unsolved cases we discussed in this episode, please contact the Clark County Sheriff’s Office at 564-397-2211.

  • In late May 2019, 41-year-old Christopher Dietterick quietly disappeared from Elkton, Maryland. About a week later, his ex-wife received a phone call from the University of Maryland Cancer Center in Baltimore; Chris hadn’t made it to his appointment for his cancer treatment on June 5. That’s when she contacted his sister, and they began to compare notes and try to find anyone who had seen or spoken to Chris. But there was no sign of Chris, so his sister, Sara, reported him missing. During the course of the investigation, they uncovered video surveillance footage of Chris at the Cecil County Health Department in Elkton around 11 AM on May 30, but that’s where his trail goes cold. Chris’ last outgoing call was that same evening at 5:05 PM, and his phone pinged in the town of Elkton. Five years later, Chris’ case remains a mystery. 

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Christopher Dietterick, please contact the Elkton Police Department at  (410) 398-4200.

  • Last week, we shared the first installment in Geoffrey Spangler's story. You learned that Geoffrey left his Las Cruces home on the morning of November 8, 2021. He planned to head out to Riudoso to stay in a cabin for several days. His family later learned that Geoffrey visited the White Sands Missile Range that day. He arrived there that morning but exited and entered a few times. He needed to contact his insurance company for proof of insurance to obtain a visitor's pass. Geoffrey was issued a pass at noon. The man who interacted with Geoffrey at the visitor's center said he saw Geoffrey's Dodge Avenger at the bowling alley that afternoon. However, it was gone when he drove by again. A receipt showed Geoffrey purchased two beers at the bowling alley around 6:15 PM. Where had he been on base between those times? Later, his mom, Tracie, was told that Geoffrey exited the El Paso gate around 7:30 PM. Not quite an hour later, Geoffrey showed up at the Pit Stop, a gas station in Oro Grande, where he purchased a couple of beverages. Geoffrey left, heading north toward Ruidoso, but Geoffrey never made it to the cabin and was never seen or heard from again. Almost a month later, someone found Geoffrey's car back down south on the outskirts of El Paso, Texas. Still, extensive searches of the area have yet to reveal a trace of Geoffrey Spangler. Today, we will look deeper at what was found on Geoffrey's electronics, video footage, and more about his interactions at White Sands Missile Range.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Geoffrey Spangler, please contact the Las Cruces Police Department at (575) 526-0795.

  • 33-year-old Geoffrey Spangler disappeared from Las Cruces, New Mexico, on November 8, 2021. Geoffrey left home that morning and told his mother he was going to Ruidoso, roughly 2 hours away, to stay in a cabin he rented. Geoffrey’s mom, Tracie, never heard from her son again, which was unusual. Tracie contacted the resort where Geoffrey was staying, and he did have a cabin reserved, but they informed her that he had never made it there. Tracie’s calls and texts to her son’s phone went unanswered. Tracie decided to report her son missing the following morning. As the investigation began, they uncovered a plethora of strange clues that Tracie has spent the last several years attempting to make sense of.

  • On November 2, 1978, 24-year-old Barbara McClure went out with friends and acquaintances. There was a dance competition that evening at the Fandango disco bar in Lake Forest Park, Washington, a suburb of Seattle. There was a disagreement that evening, and Barbara left on foot to walk home, which was about five miles away. A couple who had been with Barbara at the disco said they later went after her and offered her a ride, but she declined. Barbara never made it home that night and was never seen or heard from again. Days later, Barbara’s license turned up on the side of a roadway, but the stories of who exactly had found it have varied. At the time of her disappearance, Barbara was a single mother with a young daughter, Jamie. Decades later, Jamie decided it was time for her to fight to uncover the truth. Teaming up with her cousin, Karleen, Jamie delved into a perplexing trail of clues, exposing unsettling connections within their family circle and the closely-knit church community they belonged to.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Barbara McClure, please contact the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-263-2090. You can follow developments in Barbara’s case on social media at Where is Barbara Annette Mcclure?

  • Susan Marable disappeared from Yakima, Washington, on an April evening in 1991. She left, saying she would be back, and was never seen or heard from again. There was a story about a sighting of Susan getting into a maroon truck. However, that story remains unconfirmed. Susan’s mom worked diligently in the early years to find her daughter, but beyond her work, there isn’t much evidence of further efforts to locate Susan. Despite this, Susan’s little sister, Robyn, has continued to pursue answers. Thirty-three years after Susan mysteriously vanished, Robyn now has the support of law enforcement, a local reporter, and one of Susan’s friends from that time. Together, they are sifting through memories, old notes, and records to identify the men who were preying upon women in Yakima in 1991, hoping to find any clue that could lead them back to Susan.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Susan Marable, please call the Yakima Police Department at 509-575-6200. If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Yakima County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

  • 34-year-old Susan Marable disappeared from Yakima, Washington, on April 23, 1991. There have been unverified stories that Susan was seen getting into a vehicle, but those are just stories. We do know that Susan had been staying with a man who said she left that day and would return later. When she didn't come back, he became worried and went out to look for her. He later informed her family, who lived a few hours away in Aberdeen. 

    Susan's mother traveled to Yakima to search for her daughter, and she felt most of the investigative work was left to her. Decades later, Susan's sister, Robyn, made it her mission to find Susan. Robyn began digging through the box of notes her mom collected during her many trips to Yakima, trying to piece together what may have happened to Susan in 1991. What she began to uncover was that there were many predators in Yakima in that era, and even before Susan vanished, she had been victimized by one of them.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Susan Marable, please call the Yakima Police Department at 509-575-6200. If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Yakima County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

  • In early 2024, 25-year-old Joshua Graham-Caskey was preparing to move from Winterset, Iowa, into his girlfriend's apartment in Des Moines. Joshua spent the evening of January 17 with his girlfriend in Des Moines, then returned home the following morning. Everything seemed fine; Joshua even texted his girlfriend that he loved her, which he often did. Around 9:30 AM, a 911 call was placed from Joshua's phone. The call dropped, so the Winterset Police Department responded to conduct a welfare check. When the police arrived, Joshua and his vehicle were both gone. Later, Joshua's girlfriend went over to his home after being unable to reach him. She found that Joshua was gone, but his phone was left behind. She contacted the police and learned about the 911 call, and they decided to report Joshua missing. As the days passed, they discovered a bizarre trail of clues Joshua left behind. Several months later, Joshua's loved ones are trying to put the puzzle pieces to figure out what may have happened to him.  

    If you would like to follow the search efforts for Joshua, you can follow Help find Joshua Graham-Caskey on Facebook. Joshua was last seen driving a 2013 Ford Taurus with the Iowa license plate KNZ677.

  • In late 2023, 24-year-old Cole Hosack was working to recover from an exceptionally difficult year with multiple losses within his family. Cole and his fiancee, Morgan, were temporarily staying in Prince George, British Columbia. Cole decided to set out for a fresh start in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The plan was for Cole to start a new job, settle in, and later move Morgan out there to live with him. Cole's friend, Shelby, picked him up in Prince George, and they intended to stop in Shelby's hometown of Dawson Creek to visit for a few days before driving to Medicine Hat. Everything was going according to plan until New Year's Eve. Cole and Shelby went out that evening to celebrate the holiday. They stopped at a couple of bars in Dawson Creek and ended up at the Lonestar Bar. The place was bustling that evening as everyone was ushering in the new year. Not long after midnight, Shelby briefly stepped outside, and upon her return, Cole was nowhere to be found. Shelby waited around, searching the crowd for her friend, but he had vanished. She drove around Dawson looking for Cole, but there were no signs of him. Eventually, Shelby returned to her family home and waited to hear from her friend, but that call never came.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Cole Hosack, please contact the Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-3700. You can follow developments in Cole's case on social media at Missing: Cole Hosack.

  • On a Sunday evening in August 1989, 13-year-old Elisa Roberson left her home in Aransas Pass, Texas, to meet a friend at a local elementary school just a short walk away. Witnesses saw her along the way, and someone even reported seeing her enter a red or maroon car. But Elisa never made it to meet her friend. Her family later suspected that she might have been abducted by her mother's ex-boyfriend, Ralph, who had been abusive and threatened Elisa's mother when they ended their relationship. However, the police had their eyes on someone else, the father of the girl Elisa was walking to meet, who had a history of disturbing allegations made against him and a strange alibi. The investigation failed to uncover concrete evidence, and Elisa's case went cold. Years later, the case heated up again, and took a strange turn. 

    The family is currently offering a $20,000 reward for any information regarding Elisa's disappearance. If you have any information, please contact the Aransas Pass Police Department at 361-758-5224, or reach out to the family and private investigator at [email protected].

  • It was a hot August evening in 1989 when 13-year-old Elisa Roberson left her Aransas Pass, Texas, home to walk a short distance to meet a friend. The girls planned to meet halfway near an elementary school. The phone rang shortly after, and Elisa's younger sister, Ruby, answered. On the other line was the friend that Elisa had left to meet. She told Ruby that Elisa never showed up. Elisa's mother, Marina, was nearby and overheard the conversation. Marina began to worry, Elisa was her oldest child, and she was always dependable. If she wasn't with her friend, then where had she gone?

    Elisa's family is desperate for any information that could lead to finding Elisa. They are currently offering a $20,000 reward for any information that could help solve this mystery. If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Elisa Roberson, please contact the Aransas Pass Police Department at 361-758-5224.

  • On December 7, 2023, 36-year-old Danielle Croft was at the home of a man she recently began seeing. He said Dani left his Bonham, Texas, home around 3 or 4 AM to walk around town and look at Christmas lights. No one ever saw or heard from Dani Croft after that time. Hours later, he said he left home to walk to a local store. Along the way, he said he found Dani's clothing on the road. He continued to Dani's grandmother's nearby home to alert her, which was just the beginning of this strange tale.

  • We first brought you Judith Brown's story on May 2, 2022. In April of 1977, 19-year-old Judith Brown vanished without a trace from New York City. But Judy wasn't the only person to disappear. She had recently begun dating a man named Richard, whom she met while briefly seeking treatment for depression. This man was much older and had a violent history. How much of that Judy knew, we can't be certain. She was still a teenager and likely groomed by him. Richard was housed at the Creedmoor facility after being found not guilty by reason of insanity for the 1971 murders of his wife and 17-month-old son, and that is where he and Judy crossed paths. Richard was given many freedoms at Creedmoor, even to wander the city alone. One day, he walked off the grounds and never returned. Judy's family was concerned that they hadn't heard from her, but then, the FBI came to their door as they were trying to track down Richard. Judy's family believed that law enforcement was looking for her since the FBI was on the case, but it doesn't appear that much was done to find Judy. Decades later, Judy's case began to heat up after a younger family member, Julian, took an interest in pursuing answers. Since we first spoke to Julian in 2022, he has kept digging. Julian joined us again to provide an update on Judy's case.

    You can find Julian's page for Judith on Facebook at Judith Anne Brown Missing - "Vanished With a Killer."

  • 19-year-old Judith Brown disappeared from New York City in April of 1977. Judith lived on her own, so her family wasn’t immediately aware that she was missing. Judith’s family learned she was missing when the FBI came knocking at their door. They were shocked to learn that Judith had disappeared along with someone else, a murderer who had escaped from a local mental health facility. More than 45 years later, both of them remain missing. For many years, Judith’s family kept quiet about this. It was too upsetting to reopen those wounds. As the years wore on, a younger generation of Judith’s family took an interest in finding answers. Today, they are left to sift through the remaining clues passed down through family members and old documents. 

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Judith Brown, please contact the NYPD Missing Persons Squad at 212-694-7781.

  • On October 26, 2023, 23-year-old Michelle Arnold was picked up at her home in Maple Heights, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, and dropped off at her girlfriend's apartment just a few miles away in Warrensville Heights. In the days that followed, those close to Michelle became concerned when they hadn't heard from her and couldn't reach her by phone. By November 3, they were concerned enough to go to the police station and report Michelle missing. The stories about Michelle's disappearance didn't add up from the beginning. People in Michelle's circle weren't being truthful, but it was difficult to understand why. As the months wore on with no sign of Michelle, her case took a frightening twist after an informant came forward with a terrifying story about what happened to her. But was that the truth? 

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Michelle Arnold, please contact the Warrensville Heights Police Department at (216) 581-1234.

    UPDATE: In June 2024, Michelle Arnold’s remains were recovered in a vacant lot in East Cleveland. Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of who was responsible for Michelle Arnold's death. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463.

  • On November 3, 2023, 35-year-old Tyler Goodrich spent the day at work and stopped by a Costo store on the way home to pick up some pizza. Tyler was seen on camera there smiling; nothing seemed out of the ordinary. That night, he planned to go to his home in Lincoln, Nebraska, eat some pizza, and watch a movie with his husband and one of their sons. However, things didn't go as planned. Tyler and his husband, Marshall, had a discussion that some have characterized as a disagreement or argument. The topic of conversation that night was divorce. Marshall recorded that discussion on his phone, and when things began to escalate, Marshall called the police. While Marshall was speaking to a dispatcher, someone was captured on a household camera running out of the garage. Many believe this was Tyler, while others say they can't be sure because the footage is too grainy. After that time, Tyler Goodrich was never seen or heard from again.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Tyler Goodrich, please call the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office at 402-441-6500.
