From victims of a fire who seemed to have literally went up in smoke to people who left on vacation never to return, to children who were abducted or wandered away forever to adults who either walked out on their lives or were taken against their will, this book puts a face and a life to all those troubling cases you hear about every day on the news. These cases are not just statistics or the plot to a book, they are all true cases of missing persons. Every year in the United States hundreds of thousands of people go missing. Most are later found, but some are never seen or heard from again. Women, men, and children in every state every year disappear without a trace. They leave behind loved ones, who are left to pick up the pieces and move on never knowing what happened to their family member or friend. In this book, you will read about the true case files of those who have seemingly vanished into thin air. With pictures, age progressions, and distinguishing characteristics included for every case, you may realize that you know some small piece of information that may be just what the investigators need to help the families bring their loved ones home, or at the very least to find some closure. However, the circumstances involved in some of the cases may be a bit graphic for some. Reader discretion is advised.
