A few days ago I uploaded an earlier version
of this, however it was taken down for not having enough reputable sources. So with that in mind I’ve taken some time and update/expand this list with some of the suggestions from other Redditors as well as other cases I have since discovered. I’ll preface this by saying that my research into these cases has not been particularly extensive, so apologies if I have misrepresented anything and I’m happy to edit in corrections. As always if you think you have new information related to any of these cases, please contact the relevant authorities/tip-lines.
This is a list of missing person cases with individuals that have documented (as in recorded either audibly or visually) potential sightings taken months/years after their initial disappearances. Many of these pictures are certainly disturbing/uncomfortable so take this as your trigger warning. I imagine it must be difficult for the victims friends/families to see these as these may provide a sense either of hope or alternatively terror depending on the context of the sighting.
I appreciate anyone posting any other examples I may have missed, and I hope you find it interesting.
My key criteria for cases to be included in the list are: - Sightings must have an image, video or audio of the missing person. I am not including cases with only anecdotal sightings no matter how credible. - Sightings must have happened at least a month after the disappearances. There are too many cases to list which have sightings the night/week of a disappearance. - Cases must still be in some way unresolved. - Side note: these sightings are not all verified and I’ve included some which have even been verified false. Where I can I’ll input with what I feel is the consensus on whether it is the missing person pictured.
.1. Tara Calico
- a well known case of the disappearance of a 19 year old girl in New Mexico. It has been suggested this infamous polaroid
found in a parking lot in Florida is possibly her, and at one time it was considered the boy could be Michael Henley, another missing individual from the area.
In assisting the FBI with their inconclusive analysis of the photo, the UK Police (Scotland Yard) have said they are confident it was her, however the Los Alamos National Laboratory disagreed. The general Reddit/sleuth consensus today is that it is not Tara
leaving the individuals pictured still unidentified. Some have suggested that it is rather an image of a joke/prank taken out of context (the book next to the girl is about child abduction and their hands/feet aren’t visible), or a continuity shot
for a student film project. Supporting these theories, this guy
would tell you that duct tape on the mouth is old-Hollywood tripe.
Tara’s case remains unsolved, but most seem to gather that she is not alive today
. The possibility of the boy being Michael Henley was later ruled out
as his body was later discovered and it was ruled that he died of exposure to the elements. Further reading

- Amy Lynn Bradley went missing from a cruise ship vacation with family in 1998. Images of an escort named ‘Jas’ [nsfw] who strongly resembles Amy from a sex tourist website has led people to suggest the possibility of her being kidnapped for the purposes of human trafficking and sexual slavery, which would match with the account of a member of the Navy who claims to have seen her identifying herself and asking for help in a brothel in the cruise ships’ destination of Curaçao in 1999.
Opinion is mixed on whether it is her in the pictures. One poster from the amybradleyismissing.com forum suggests that Amy is just the tip of the iceberg and attempts to link many other escorts from the sex tourism website with missing persons [nsfw1] [nsfw2]
I suppose it approaches conspiracy territory here, and it may be more of a lesson in how many people look alike rather than a spotlight on a trafficking hub.
There have been a couple of other sightings of Amy, one in which she identified herself and asked to be rescued in Barbados in 2005, with [this sketch] being released from the account. The case still remains unsolved.

- Rui Pedro Teixeira Mendonça - a Portuguese child who went missing from outside his home aged 11 in 1998. A photo of him on a ride in Disneyland Paris with an unidentified man, as well images (cropped) uncovered from a child pornography ring named ‘wonderland’ were discovered months later. Hopes were renewed in 2018 when a video of a man who shared certain unique facial characteristics with Rui made Portuguese headlines, but it was later confirmed by police to be a false lead.
Sadly the Disneyland and Wonderland images are generally accepted to be of him, as confirmed by his mother in Netflix’s Madeline McCann documentary. His whereabouts are still unknown and he was declared legally dead by Portuguese police in 2019. Further Reading

- The 2007 UK case of Andrew Gosden, a bright 14 year old kid who uncharacteristically skipped school, took a train down to London and was never heard from again. Various images     and an online chat have surfaced over the years, which some have suggested are of Andrew, but these leads have remained inconclusive.
The photos are generally considered to be false leads of similar looking individuals, and the case is unsolved nearly 14 years later. Further reading

- Louis Sodder - a photo seemingly of one of the missing Sodder children from West Virginia was mailed to the children’s mother 22 years after their disappearance in 1945 following a mysterious house fire. The photo had a cryptic note on the back that read: “Louis Sodder / I love brother Frankie / Ilil boys / A90132 or 35”. When the family hired a private detective to go to Kentucky to look into the photo, he was never heard from again. The whole case is stranger than fictions, being filled with twists such as this including dodgy insurance salesmen, boxed ‘hearts’, multiple sightings, fireballs and police corruption.
The image of Louis is believed to be credible by the family, who used the image on their billboard
. The case is unsolved but officially closed/cold. The last surviving family members/witnesses from that time died this year
, still continue their personal efforts. Further reading
- Madeline McCann - perhaps the most well known missing persons case that needs no introduction or any retelling here IMHO. Over the years there have been numerous reported sightings of Madeline  , so many that the sightings alone now have their own wikipedia page. Evidently none of the sightings have led to finding Madeline, all being confirmed to be false leads, with one poor girl in New Zealand has been mistaken for Madeline on more than one occasion

- Laureen Rahn vanished under mysterious circumstances from her home in Manchester, New Hampshire in April 1980. Laureen had two friends staying over that night, the male one ran off when he mistakenly thought he heard her mom coming home and the female one slept in her bed while Laureen took the sofa. The mother came home to find all of the lightbulbs unscrewed, but didn’t immediately look into it further as she mistook the friend for Laureen sleeping in the bed, and Laureen was never heard from again.
The case is a strange/haunting one which is worth reading about as it includes the mother’s credit card being charged for strange phone calls in October 2018 to a “teen sexual assistance hotline” and from one motel to another in Southern California which have since been linked to a child pornographer named "Dr. Z". The mother also regularly received silent phone calls around 3:45am which she believed to be from Laureen. This, combined with sightings of sex workers resembling Laureen have led people to suggest the possibility of sex trafficking.
The possible trolling and/or leads continues to this day with anecdotes from people claiming to be linked with the female friend
, strange cryptic YouTube videos
posted under her name and a redditor
suggesting the possibility of this interview with a homeless escort named Trixy
being Laureen. Further reading

- The jury is still out on whether the 2005 disappearance of 59 year old district attorney Ray Gricar was a homicide (motives have been suggested), suicide (as with his brother, and his laptop was found in a river) or disappearance to start a new life (he had recently expressed interest in the case of a police chief who did so). Supporting the latter theory is multiple alleged sightings of Gricar, including one from a police officer with experience as a composite sketch artist, one sighting corroborated by two witnesses and one with photographic evidence. The photo was however later ruled out by his family, who did acknowledge the similarities.
Ray’s case has been featured in various television documentary programs. Centre County authorities declared Gricar legally dead in July 2011. Further reading
- No images of 9 year old Anthonette Cayedito have surfaced since her disappearance since being take from her front door in 1986, however 1 years later-on a recorded phone call to 911 did. I can’t find the YouTube interview I saw where her now late mother emphatically states the recording is Anthonette, so you’ll have to take my word on that. Another potential sighting was made 4 years later by a waitress of a girl resembling Anthonette accompanied by an unkempt couple at a restaurant in Nevada. The unidentified girl left a note saying "Help Me" and "Call the Police".
The phone call nor restaurant sighting amounted to anything as Anthonette’s whereabouts have never been discovered and she is presumed dead. Some, including the police, have stated the belief that her mother knew more about the disappearance than she let on, and it is always possible that both of the above leads were false.

- Estelle Mouzin, disappeared on her walk back from school in 2003, with the case gaining huge media coverage in her home nation of France. An internet user spotted the resemblance of an image of Estelle with a model from a very seedy porn website [nsfw] and notified relevant authorities of this possible lead.
Image consensus: Although her father at the time was unable to confirm
it was Estelle, it has since been ruled out
. It appears there have also been other false leads
and hoaxes claiming to associate Estelle with such imagery
Case latest: After many years of unanswered questions French serial killer Michel Fourniret confessed to Estelle’s murder. However he died this year before he could be trialled/convicted, and after excavating the suspected burial site
her body is still undiscovered. Estelle’s website

- Brian Shaffer is a very popular case in this sub so I won’t go into too much detail. The TLDR of it is that a handsome 27 year old medical student enters a bar with friends in April 2006, and is never seen leaving it, or ever again for that matter. People have suggested the involvement of a friend of Shaffer’s, the band who played the venue that night, the possibility of his remains still being in the venue, or him somehow making an escape and starting a new life. This possibility seemed closer to reality when someone spotted the resemblance between this homeless man and Shaffer, but that sighting was later ruled out.
This wouldn’t be the first time that people have thought certain homeless persons could be missing individuals, as seen in the case of Cameron Remmer Shawn Hale
and Bryce Laspisa

- Missing since 1973, could Dorothy Mildred Clitheroe be a victim of Rodney James Alcala aka “The Dating Game Killer”? He is a convicted rapist and serial killer who died just weeks ago, and while he had been convicted of 5 counts of murder, many believe his true victim count to be far higher, although he refused to speak up about other victims.
He was a photographer by day, and was known to turn his photographic subjects into victims. Knowing this, law enforcement released 120 photos
to the public in 2010, and asked for help identifying the subjects to rule out possible other victims. One astute Redditor pointed out the uncanny similarity
between one of these subjects and Clitheroe, who disappeared at the age of 14. The timeline between her disappearance and his killing spree also do align, and her going from Arizona to California is certainly a possibility. Further reading

- The 1982 case of Johnny Gosch is equals part tragic and bizarre, with his mother Noreen Gosch being the victim of a combination of incompetent policing, likely trolling, probable delusions, conspiracy theorists and possible taunts from the victims captors.
Kidnapped while delivering his paper round at the age of 12, Johnny has had the following claims made about him by his mother: - He was spotted months later in Oklahoma yelling for help by a woman as he was dragged off by two men. - In 1985 he paid for something with a dollar bill with his signature on it saying “I am alive”. - Regular phone calls are made by him and his captors to her. - He turned up to her apartment in 1997 at the age of 27 with an unidentified man to have a conversation with her
- From 2006 and onwards photos of him bound and gagged were sent to her front door, some of which she posted
on her website. She continued to post such photos she claimed to have received
. Some of the photos (see the one dated March 2007 in the last link) were from a Polish TV show, so it’s possible she was making up tales to keep the story alive.
The disappearance is similar to two other paperboy kidnappings in the area years later, although no proof has been obtained to confirm a connection. Johnny’s case is still open and has been the subject of a documentary, but is today considered cold. Further reading

- Jackson Alexander Miller vanished at the age of 19 in San Francisco in 2010. He suffered with severe depression, anxiety and paranoia at the time of his disappearance for which he was taken medication for, and was last seen at a bus stop near the Golden Gate Bridge. While you may rule the case an obvious suicide, surveillance cameras didn't record anyone jumping from the bridge that day, no bodies turned up in the bay and police have stated their fair degree of certainty that it was not suicide.
There have been numerous potential sightings of him throughout the years, and one sighting was reported as recently as April when a woman reported encountering a homeless man at a Target parking lot who identified himself as the missing Miller, asked for a cigarette, and a ride to Sacramento. He was also captured on surveillance video
leaving the store. Jackson remains missing today. Further reading

- The 2000 case of missing 8 year old Zachary Bernhardt shares a similarity with that of Tara Calico in that it has been linked with no great certainty to a disturbing Polaroid found in a car park. The case hasn’t received as much attention as other similar cases, and a number of sleuths point their finger at his mother, who struggled financially, moved to Hawaii after the disappearance and who’s actions on the night of the disappearance seem unusual (going for a brief swim at 3am in the apartment swimming pool while the kidnapping took place).
Authorities believe he disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Kevin Jalbert, who resides near Zachary's home, told an acquaintance that he was a child murderer who had abducted and raped 1,000 children and killed five. His sister said he is a chronic liar and exaggerates to receive attention. He led an undercover police officer to Zachary's apartment building and said he had kidnapped a child from there, but he pointed out the wrong apartment and described Zachary's clothing incorrectly. DNA samples from Jalbert also did not match available evidence. Jalbert denied having abducted the boy, but he failed a polygraph about his involvement in the case. Authorities stated they've been unable to rule him out as a suspect.
In January 2002, a five-year-old boy was kidnapped from the same apartment complex Zachary disappeared from. Zachary’s whereabouts have never been located. Further reading

- There was a small hint of doubt that Michael Rockefeller was indeed dead after his disappearance in 1961, with the official ruling being that he had drowned while trying to swim back to shore from his capsized boat. Others suggested he had been eaten by wild animals or even the Asmat tribespeople, who he was studying at the time; collecting their carvings/totems to display at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In an attempt to learn more about his death, and partially as an attempt to dispel conspiracy theories suggesting that he was still alive and living amongst the tribespeople, journalist Milt Machlin travelled to New Guinea in 1969 to conduct research for his book “The Search for Michael Rockefeller”. The book concluded that Rockefeller had indeed made it to shore, but only to be killed by headhunters. While Machlin was there he also brought along a cinematographer, but the footage was never used and was archived in a stock footage warehouse. That was until 2008, when Fraser Heston unearthed the footage for his Netflix documentary which shares the books name. Amongst this footage Heston found a few frames of footage
which undoubtedly show a lone naked white man amongst the tribe, one who has been suggested somewhat resembles Rockefeller, bringing the conspiracy full circle. Further reading
- Brianna Alexandra Maitland disappeared after leaving her job at the Black Lantern Inn in Montgomery, Vermont in 2004. She was 17 years old at the time. Maitland's car was discovered the following day, backed into the side of an abandoned house about a mile away from her workplace.
After a potential sighting in 2006, video from a casino

- Renee LaManna was studying nuclear medicine technology in 1994. She was found walking the streets of her NYC borough of Queens in an incoherent state on January 8, 1994 and was taken to hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Afterwards she was taken to her sister's home in New Jersey after her discharge later that day. She ran from the house that evening in below freezing temperatures.
That night she was last seen inside the Waterfront Bar in Somers Point, New Jersey and her family has not seen or heard from her again. However, there have been multiple sightings since, including one in 1995, where someone reported seeing Renee on a subway platform in lower Manhattan looking at her own missing person flyer, seemingly unaware the missing woman was her. Since her sister has been following leads from Virginia, Tennessee and more recently North Carolina.
The photographed sighting in Virginia is a strange one, there are three photos in this article
which are said to be of LaManna, but I believe this turned out to not be the case
, and instead it was a woman falsely claiming to be her.
Her sister is still very active

A week after Summers disappeared, her family banded together to search the neighborhood and surrounding areas for the girl. The FBI later speculated that she may have been kidnapped and that her disappearance might be related to other Cleveland disappearances made years earlier.
One month after Summers went missing, her family received a phone call from a girl, believed to be Summers herself, telling them not to worry and that she was safe. In early 2015, it was circulated that she was possibly seen at an ATM in Rhode Island

I've made only moderate progress on this family in the past twenty years or so, but people seem to get pretty good results posting their brick walls here, so I thought I'd give it a go.
My great-great-grandfather, James C. Nix, was born January 25, 1854 in Tennessee, according to his death certificate
. Census records from 1870 - 1910 are pretty much consistent with that. In a family history essay written probably in the 1970s, my great-grandfather claimed more specifically that his father was born in Fulton, Tenn. Apparently during the Civil War, James moved with his mother, step-father, half-sister, and possibly a brother or half-brother to St. Louis, Mo. From the 1870 census onward, the record of this family is fairly clear. Before that, however, I've run into problems.
Here's what I know of James' mother, Celia Fox. She seems to have been born sometime in the 1820s in Tennessee. Later census records list her parents' birthplaces as both in North Carolina, father in England and mother in N.C., or father in N.C. and mother in Missouri. One census for James lists his mother's birthplace as North Carolina (though all others say Tenn.), so some connection to that state seems likely. The earliest actual record I have of Celia Fox is her marriage
in Phillips Co., Arkansas in 1847 to Enoch Thrailkill (other records list his name as John and are inconsistent in spelling his last name). These two had a daughter named Amanda in 1849, and possibly at least one son (my great-grandfather claimed his father's brother Edgar had run away to join the Confederate Army and was never heard of again; I've found no other evidence of this). Celia later married my g-g-g-grandfather and had James in 1854. Later still she married George A. Miller, who apparently made the move to St. Louis with them, but died shortly afterward. This is supported by the next-oldest documentation I have of her, her listing in the 1868 St. Louis city directory as "Miller Celia, wid. George". After this, I have the 1870
, Jun. 1880
, Nov. 1880
, and 1900
censuses for her, and then records of her death on Oct. 17, 1900, including this obituary in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DEATH OF MRS. CELAH MILLER
She Was Thrice Married and Was 80 Years of Age
Mrs. Celah Miller died at her late residence, 3844 Evans avenue, Wednesday afternoon, at the advanced age of 80 years.
Mrs. Miller was born in Tennessee, where, when she was 14 years old, she was married to John Threkald. He lived but a few years and two years after his death she married James Nix. Her second husband did not live long and she married George Miller. They came to St. Louis in 1864. Mr. Miller died two years later.
During her last years of life Mrs. Miller lived with her two surviving children, Mrs. John Bollinger and James Nix, at the residence on Evans avenue. She was ill only a few days prior to her death.
The funeral services will be conducted at the Third Baptist Church Friday afternoon.
According to the 1900 census, Celia had seven children in her lifetime, two of whom were alive at that time (James Nix and Amanda Thrailkill Bollinger). My great-grandfather also claimed that another brother (Thrailkill, Nix, or Miller, I don't know) also made the move to St. Louis, but died of smallpox. If that brother and Edgar the runaway are real, this leaves three more possible children for whom I have no other documentation whatsoever.
Here's what I know of James' father, my g-g-g-grandfather. His name might be James (from Celia's obituary) or Bartholomew (from James' death certificate). His birthplace is also a point of contention, being listed on his son's census records alternately as Tennessee or Wales, and on his son's death certificate as Alabama. The idea that my ancestors were Welsh is one that I heard as family lore when I started researching my genealogy, but I've also had a Y-chromosome DNA test that links me to other Nixes who claim to be descended from a guy who immigrated from England to South Carolina via Barbados in the 1700s. The only other piece of information I have about James' father is that my great-grandfather claimed he died before James was born, so presumably around late 1853.
Sorry to have presented such a wall of text, but I wanted to include as much information as I have to better my chances that someone will see something that will help in figuring out where to look next. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
