The 19 Creepiest Missing Person Cases


Husband Marco, his wife Sylvia, & their daughter Miriam (12 at the time), went missing from their home in Drage on the 22nd July 2015, nowhere to be found. Marcos body was found a week later in the Elbe (a river), he had a concrete block attached to his legs with a rope. Sylvia & Miriam though remain unfound to this day. Sylvia can’t be pronounced dead yet, earliest in 8 years from now on, 10 years after her disappearance. Miriam on the other hand can’t be pronounced dead until she is 25, that is the law here in Germany. Many people believe that either the dad killed his wife, daughter, then himself. Others believe mother & daughter are alive.


The disappearance of Fred Valentich, he was a pilot who set off from a Melbourne airport on a training exercise over Bass Strait, he never arrived at King Island. What makes it creepy that he radioed in that there was a strange craft following him and the last piece of communication was a metallic scraping sound. Experts said that he was disorientated and was flying upside down and seeing the lights from his own craft on the water but his Cessna he was flying could only fly upside down for a few seconds before stalling. They have never found him or his craft.


Sarah and Jacob Hoggle. Their mother took them “somewhere safe” and has never told anyone where that was or what happened. She also apparently has paranoid schizophrenia and is not competent to stand trial.
