5 Mysterious Disappearences Caught On Tape

5 Mysterious Disappearences Caught On Tape


5. “Lashaya Nae Stine”: On July 23rd
of this year, straight-A student Lashaya Nae Stine leaves her Aurora, Colorado home at
2:15 in the morning. The 16-year-old has plans to meet somebody and she is wearing a white
long-sleeve shirt with black jeans. Police think that this was most likely was the last
night of her life, but not necessarily her last outfit. When Lashaya’s mother, Sabrina [Sah-breen-nah”]
Jones, wakes up the next day, she can’t find her daughter anywhere and immediately
suspects that something was wrong. She knows that if her daughter was going to spend the
night somewhere, then she would have taken some important things with her. Lashaya had
instead left her wallet and cell phone charger at home, and she didn’t take any spare clothes
with her either. On top of that, Lashaya had an interview for an internship at the local
hospital today. It was all she could talk about lately, so there was no way she would
miss it. This was all too out-of-character to mean anything but trouble. Police agree that the situation looked suspicious
and start to investigate. Detectives are able to track her last known whereabouts using
surveillance camera footage. The last time she was filmed was near a bus stop at 2:23.
She appears to be walking in a hurry as she checks over her shoulder and briskly [“briss-klee”]
crosses the street. Police are also able to track down a witness who claims to have seen
her at 2:30, and here’s where things get strange. When the person sees Lashaya later that night,
she has on a black tank top and blue shorts. This description doesn’t match what she
was last seen wearing on video. Since this is still an active investigation, police won’t
say much else about what the witness saw or even who they were. The police will say, however,
that they have uncovered information that caused them to have quote “a greater concern
for her safety”. Lashaya’s grieving family has since created
a GoFundMe page in the wake of her absence. They are completely desperate at this point
and hope to use whatever money they can raise as a potential reward for her return. If enough
people donate, they hope to get their daughter back. Here is the address: https://www.gofundme.com/2jjpykck. Months later, no arrests have been made. Lashaya’s
body has yet to be found. Nobody has any idea how she apparently managed to change outfits
despite taking no extra clothes with her, as seen on camera. 4. “Kierra Subbs”: In 2014, Kierra [“Key-air-rah”]
Stubbs was dropped off at a cell phone store by her brother. The 23-year-old Birmingham
[“Burr-ming-ham”], Alabama [“Alla-bam-mah”] woman was going to meet a man to help fix
her car. A purple 2012 Chrysler [“Cries-ler”] soon pulls up to her a short while later.
Kierra has a conversation with the man through his rolled down window and then she goes around
and gets inside. The car backs up and drives away with her inside of it. An hour and a
half goes by. Now her brother is getting worried and contacts police. It’s two years later, and no one has seen
Kierra since. Her family is convinced that the man driving
the Chrysler is the one responsible for Kierra’s disappearance though. She had only been talking
to him for a month over the phone when she got into his car that day. After she asked
him for money to fix her brakes, he told her to meet him in the parking lot of the phone
store. She had never gotten in the car with him before then, her family says. He either
killed her or maybe he even still has her to this day, they say. They are absolutely
sure of it. When police interviewed the man who was last
seen with Kierra, however, his answers speak of a completely different story. According
to the man, whose name has not been released because there have been no charges, he says
that he dropped her off in the exact same area a short while later. Whatever happened
to her from there is beyond his knowledge. The circumstances seem suspicious, but there’s
not much that detectives can do. His story is solid enough that police aren’t able
to get a search warrant for his home, which means that Kierra could still be in there
to this very day for all they know . . . or at least her body. “We’re not sleeping. We hardly eat,”
says Kierra’s grandmother two years later. The missing woman leaves behind two children
ages 3 and 6. They still sometimes ask if their mother will be coming home. 3. “Steven Koecher [“Ko-chure”]”:
In December of 2009, 30-year-old Steven Koecher left his house in St. [“Saint”] George,
Utah [“You-tall”]. The next morning, he gets a phone call from his friend, Greg Webb.
Steven tells Greg that he is heading to Las Vegas, but that if Greg really needs for him
to fill him for him at a local church meeting, then he can turn right around and be there
on time. Greg tells his friend said that was not necessary and hangs up. Greg doesn’t
think that his friend is in any trouble. It really wasn’t odd for him to take spur-of-the-moment
road trips like this from time to time. Two days later, his white 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier
[“Cehv-roll-lay” “Cah-vah-leer”] is found in a dead end road in Henderson, Nevada.
Inside police find a shaving kit, coats, sleeping supplies, and Christmas gifts for his cousins.
Missing are his wallet, cell phone, passport and driver’s license. The car still has
a half tank of gas, so he didn’t abandon it for that reason. Steven’s family and friends can’t figure
out why he would take off. It just doesn’t make sense. Sure he had been having financial
troubles lately, but he also been searching for a job full time and sending out resumes.
Wouldn’t he at least wait for a response before totally giving up? Plus, if he really
was planning on running away, then why did he not take his cell phone charger and laptop
with him? Why buy presents for his cousins? He was a religious man who loved his family
and wanted to live. None of it made sense. Police check the surveillance tapes from where
his car was located. They see Steven pull up and get out of his car. He walks down a
sidewalk and crosses the street out of sight. Nobody was with him and he appeared to be
walking with a purpose. He does not appear to be intoxicated at all. Police check his cell phone logs and discover
that five hours after he left his car, his GPS coordinates put him in an area that was
more than three miles away. The next morning, police can tell that someone has checked his
voice mail. The signal continues to be picked up for about two more days and then goes cold.
Whether it really was Steven or just someone who killed or kidnapped him remains to be
determined. Either way, his phone continued to be used for hours after he was last seen. The search for Steven continues to this day.
In 2015, over 200 volunteers combed a 25-square-mile radius [“raid-dee-us”] looking for Steven’s
remains across rocks and canyons. Even a single piece of DNA evidence would have helped them
crack the case, but, unfortunately, the team came up emptyhanded. As such, the case remains
unsolved to this day. 2. “Alan Jeal [“Jeel”]”: In February
of 2014, a dead body washed up on an English beach in Perranporth [“Pear-rin-porth”].
A dog walker discovered the nearly nude corpse at 2 p.m., during high tide. The 64-year-old
dead man had visible injuries to his chest, head and hand, along with a pair of earphones
and a sock shoved into his mouth. An autopsy was unable to confirm drowning as the cause
of death. Possible foul play was suspected. Police find a number of mysterious items near
the body. There was a jacket, a wallet, and a photo of a toddler. A woolly hat and a rucksack
were found on the beach as well, though these two items may not belong to him. Police were only able to identify him as Alan
Jeal after they posted an artist’s recreation of him online and his family responded. They
were able to use surveillance footage to track Alan’s movements all around the city. As
the tapes show, he spends most of the day taking a series of buses and long walks around
the center of town in no real hurry. At one point he is seen talking to strangers at a
bus stop, but the police are unable to identify the people he speaks with. Afterwards, he
catches a ride to Perranporth. Cameras catch him walking around Perranporth between 10:25
and 10:27 at night. It was the last time he was seen on tape before his body washed ashore
some time later. Police determine that at some point he bought
ankle weights and chest weights. This would be something that a person who wanted to drown
themselves would wear. People who knew Alan describe him as a loner, so suicide does seem
like a possibility. However, no such weights were found on his dead body and what became
of them is unknown. In addition, his injuries were determined to not be self-inflicted [“in-flick-ted”],
meaning that he had to have gotten in some sort of altercation before he was cast into
the ocean. Absolutely nobody knows for sure what ever happened to Alan Jeal for sure. As for the photo he was found with, authorities
believe it to be a picture of him at the age of 2. This just adds a whole new level of
bizareness to the mystery 1. “Lyle [“Lie-ull”] and Marie Ann McCann
[“Mick-can”]: In July of 2010, Lyle and Marie Ann McCann decide to go on a road trip
to British Columbia. After spending a couple of hours on the road, a surveillance camera
at a gas station shows the 78-year-old filling up his camper while his 77-year-old wife gets
cookies and canned goods inside. This ordinary footage suddenly becomes bone chilling when
you realize this is their last recorded moments on earth. Two days later, the McCann’s burned up camper
is found at a campsite just outside Edson [“Ed-son”], but their bodies are never
found. Even though the camper was completely burned from the inside out, the police don’t
investigate much because it’s so common for meth addicts to burn stolen cars in that
area. Eleven days after that, the couple’s SUV that was hitched to the camper is discovered
just 15 miles away. Inside police find Marie Ann McCann’s blood and Lyle’s hat, which
has a bullet hole in it. There’s also an empty beer can with more DNA evidence on it
as well. Police suspect the murderer to be a person
named Travis Vader. Travis once owned a thriving [“thrive-ving”] oilfield consulting company,
but it all fell apart after his wife met someone else online. Travis went on to develop a meth
and alcohol habit that would put him in and out of jail and leave him desperate for cash.
That’s when they think he came across Lyle and Marie Ann. Sometime between 10 in the morning and 2 in
the afternoon, police suspect Travis tried to steal money from the elderly couple. He
then killed them and stole their camper. After a short drive, he decided to burn the camper
and abandon the SUV. This theory is supported by five phone calls
and two text messages that are made to Travis’ girlfriend using Lyle’s cellphone. One of
the text messages ends with a nickname – “it’s me, t”. Since ‘T’ is the first initial
of Travis’ name, it seems obvious that he is the one who made the calls. The DNA on
the hat and the beer can also point to Travis as well. There’s only one thing: Travis has another
meth-addicted friend named Terry McColman [“Mick-coal-man”]. Terry was just as desperate
as Travis and was also known for burning stolen cars. He also knew Travis’ girlfriend and
he had the same first initial as Travis, so he could have killed the McCanns and made
the calls. To make matters even more complicated, Terry died before police could question him
further. As for the DNA evidence, Travis’ lawyer
argued that all it shows was that Travis had looked inside of the vehicle
sometime after it had been abandoned. Travis could have simply stuck his head inside and
sneezed or even touched an object that somehow ended up inside of the vehicle later. He also
could have stolen the vehicle himself after Terry or someone else had committed murder. Some evidence, however, was harder to disprove.
For example, there was a stolen white pickup truck that police found burned to a crisp.
Inside this pickup truck were the keys to the McCann’s SUV. A witness named Dave Olson
says that he saw Travis burn a similar-looking white pickup truck earlier. In exchange for testifying, however, Dave
Olson was paid 25-thousand-dollars by court system in the form of witness protection expenses.
Travis’ defense team is trying to say that this is a bribe, and they are calling for
a mistrial. They believe that the police planted the keys on the white pickup truck to begin
with and used false testimony from a phony witness. Multiple witnesses all said that Travis couldn’t
have murdered the McCanns because he spent the entire day sleeping on a friend’s couch.
Either way, it took prosecutors two years to charge Travis with murder and take him
to court in 2014. The charges were thrown out based on a lack of evidence and then reinstated
[“re-in-state-ted”]. All of this happened over the course of a single year. Travis Vader was found guilty of murder in
September of this year, but his appeals continue to this day. A judge is supposed to decide
whether or not he is a victim of a mistrial on October 30th. Even though it is apparent that the McCanns
were murdered, their circumstances remain a mystery. Police still aren’t sure exactly
what time they were murdered, where they were murdered, or where their remains are today.
It’s also quite possible that Travis could have acted with a partner who is still at
large, waiting to strike again.
