    Andrea Knabel

    Andrea Knabel

    In 2019, 37-year-old Andrea Knabel from Louisville, Kentucky, was going through a bit of a rough patch. She’d recently lost her job, crashed her car, and lost her apartment. So, she was staying at her mother’s home in Audubon Park, a very affluent area about 5 miles from downtown Louisville. At this time Andrea’s sister Sarah and her partner Ethan were also staying at the home to finish some repairs.

    On the night of August 12, Andrea gets into a fight with her mother, Sarah, and Ethan about her life choices. And things get pretty heated.

    After a very long night of going to the hospital, being locked out of her home, and going back and forth between her mother’s home and Erin’s home, Andrea goes missing from what’s considered to be one of the safest areas in the city.

    Although local police don’t seem to take the case as seriously as Andrea’s loved ones hoped, her case sparks a lot of media attention.

    Andrea dedicated a lot of her time to an organization called Missing in America where she would actively help search for the missing. So not only was Andrea’s family looking for her, so was this organization. And everyone had a lot of questions.

    Did Andrea get mixed up with the wrong crowd? Did she go undercover for Missing in America and get herself into a dangerous situation? Why was Andrea locked out of her home? And of course, where is Andrea?

    Jennifer and Adrianna Wix

    Jennifer and Adrianna Wix

    In the summer of 2003, Jennifer Wix, a 20-year-old mother of one, was living with her aunt when she started dating Joey Benton. At first, Jennifer was excited for her new relationship. But things quickly went downhill - Joey was controlling, mean, and violent. The relationship was unstable, and they would often break up then get back together again. 
     
    By March of 2004, Jennifer and her baby Adrianna were living with Joey and his parents out on their rural northern Tennessee property. Jennifer’s family was worried about the safety of Jennifer and Adrianna, Jennifer assured them everything would be okay. But everything wasn’t okay. Jennifer was having serious issues with Joey and his parents.
     
    On March 24, Jennifer called her mom Kathy to tell her about all the horrible things she’d been going through lately. She said it was clear Joey’s family didn’t want her or Adrianna to stay with them. Their behavior and attitude toward her had escalated and she was scared. 
     
    Kathy asked if she could come pick up Jennifer and Adrianna, but Jennifer said no. She would take care of it. Before they got off the phone, Jennifer said she’d call Kathy the next day. But Kathy never heard from Jennifer, or Adrianna, again. 
     
    This is the case of Jennifer and Adrianna Wix.
     
    21-year-old Jennifer and two-year-old Adrianna were last heard from on March 25, 2004. It’s believed they went missing from Cross Plains, Tennessee. Jennifer is a white woman with brown eyes. At the time of her disappearance, she was 5’4” - 5’6”, 125-135 pounds. Her brown hair had red highlights, and she wore silver oval shaped glasses. She has a tribal tattoo on her lower back. Her ears are pierced twice, and her tongue is pierced once. 
     
    At the time of her disappearance, Adrianna was 3’5”, 25 pounds. She is a white girl with brown hair and blue/green eyes. She has a birthmark on the front of her upper right thigh. She may go by the nickname Nina. 
     
    Anyone with information is asked to contact the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office at 615-384-7971, submit a tip on the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office website, or call the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND. Callers remain anonymous. There is currently a $25,000 reward.

    The family is trying to raise funds for a PI and a reward fund. Please share and donate if you can: https://gofund.me/52fd60eb

    Michael Vaughan

    Michael Vaughan

    Michael Vaughan was only 5 years old when he went missing from his neighborhood in Fruitland, Idaho on July 27, 2021. After months of intense searches, scrutiny over whether an Amber Alert should have been issued, and even SB 1378, new legislation sparked by the case, what happened to Michael remains a mystery.
     
    Although The Fruitland Police Department initially believed Michael likely just wandered away from his home, they now believe he was most likely abducted. No suspects have been named and Chief JD Huff with the Fruitland PD has been clear that his parents, Brandi Neal and Tyler Vaughan have been cooperative in the investigation.
     
    But just days before this episode aired, the Fruitland PD announced that they do have several persons of interest in the case and are now on the lookout for a very specific potential witness. They also make it clear that unfortunately, not everyone has been cooperative in the investigation into what happened to Michael Vaughan.
     
    Michael was last seen wearing a light blue Minecraft T-shirt, dark blue boxer briefs and size 11 flip-flops. He is a white male with blonde hair and blue eyes. When he went missing, he was 3 feet 6 inches tall and weighed about 50 pounds. Michael also responds to the nickname "Monkey."
     
    As of recording this episode, the reward to information leading to Michael’s recovery has reached nearly $53,000.
     
    Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Fruitland Police dispatch at 208-642-6006 or to email findmichael@fruitland.org.

    Leah Croucher

    Leah Croucher

    This episode features the case of 19-year-old Leah Croucher from Milton Keynes, England.
     
    On February 15, 2019, Leah got up for work at the same time she always did to make the 30-to-40-minute walk to her job. After her shift ended at 5pm, her parents received a call from her employer informing them that Leah never made it to work that day. Although there are many witnesses who claim to have seen Leah the day she went missing and after, the Thames Valley Police have deemed every single sighting unconfirmed.
     
    The investigation leaves the public and her family with more questions than it does answers. Did Leah leave on her own accord? Was she in a secret, forbidden relationship with someone who needed to her disappear? Or was she just in the wrong place at the wrong time?
     
    Leah Croucher went missing from Milton Keynes, England on February 15, 2019. As of recording this episode, Leah would be 22 years old, 23 in just a few weeks. She is 5ft 2 or approximately 160cm tall, with a slim build and sometimes wears glasses. Her hair is brown and was just below her shoulders in 2019. When she went missing, she was wearing a black coat, black skinny jeans, all black Converse high-top sneakers, and a grey hoodie with the "Stewartby Taekwondo" logo on it.

    Chance Englebert

    Chance Englebert

    In 2019, Chance Englebert was spending the 4th of July weekend with his in laws in Gering, Nebraska. On Saturday, July 6th, he, and some family members went golfing and there was some type of argument over Chance’s new job, specifically about him making less money than in his previous position. Chance gets upset, calls his wife Baylee to pick him up and he tells her that he wants to cut the weekend short and just go back home to Wyoming. But instead of going directly home, Baylee says she drives them back to her grandparents' home and she and Chance get into a fight in the driveway that results in Chance walking away from the home. This is something Chance did when he would get upset, he would take a walk to cool down and then come back when he was in a better frame of mind. But this time Chance didn’t come back.

    Chance Englebert went missing from Gering, Nebraska on July 6th, 2019. Chance has brown hair and hazel eyes, he is 5 feet 11 inches tall, and has a medium build. He was last seen wearing a short sleeve button-up Wrangler shirt, dark blue Wrangler jeans, roper-style boots, and a black and white trucker hat.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact the Gering Police Department at 308-436-5088.

    The Clouse Family

    The Clouse Family

    Today I am discussing the murders of Dean and Tina Clouse as well as the disappearance of their child, Holly. In 1980, Dean and Tina packed up their car and moved their family from Florida to Texas for Dean to pursue a better career prospect. By all accounts the small family was happy and thriving. During this time Tina would often send letters and pictures of Holly back home to their families in Florida. But in October 1980, the letters stopped.
     
    By January 1981, Dean’s mother received a phone call from a woman who identified herself as Sister Susan. Sister Susan explains that Tina and Dean decided to join their group and give up all their worldly possessions, so she’d like to return their car to her for a monetary donation of $1000. Dean’s mother agrees, gets the vehicle back and spends the next 40 years agonizing over what really happened the young family.
     
    What she didn’t know was that Tina and Dean had been found deceased just weeks within in getting this phone call. And while it was obvious that Tina and Dean had been murdered, they remained unidentified for decades while no one knew that baby Holly was still missing.
     
    In this episode you will hear two parallel timelines. You will hear about the life and disappearances of Tina, Dean, and their baby Holly. But you will also hear the timeline of when Tina and Dean were found deceased and the County’s timeline of trying to identify them. Only intersecting over 40 years later when Tina and Dean are finally identified, and baby Holly was found alive.
     
    Tina and Dean Clouse were found murdered in Houston, Texas in January 1981 off Wallisville Road. Tina was 18 and Dean was 22 years old. Both were white with brown hair with Tina’s hair having more of a red tint to it. The family would have been traveling in a 1978 red burgundy AMC Concord before it was returned to Dean’s mother in 1981.
     
    Anyone with information should contact the Texas Attorney General’s Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit at 512-936-0742 or email coldcaseunit@oag.texas.gov

Voices for Justice

Absolutely love what Sarah is doing in this podcast, and the way she does it. 🖤

Snowfox1001 ,

Endless questions

This was an interesting podcast. But I must say that you’re never going to stop people from being curious about the killers. It is exactly because of what she said human beings are naturally wanting to understand why, why, why. There is some need to try to get to the bottom of why people do things the way they do and what happened. Because I write per time maybe it is part of my desire to understand things in a deep way that I am interested in true crime.She said yes there are bad people and that’s it. But of course human beings want to delve in and try to really see what these people are all about and how they got there. You can’t stop humans from learning - you just can’t.

Biddank ,

First season (I lied - it’s ALL of them) = INCREDIBLE

The honesty, the raw emotions, the journey from complete trust to total disillusion… I have never listened to a better podcast. Later seasons are likely almost as good - it can’t be the same without Sarah having the personal closeness to the cases in the newer episodes like she did for Alissa’s story, but I know Disappeared is also great. I just haven’t made it to the newer episodes to comment on them, but I’m sure they’re also amazing. (I made it there because binging and they are phenomenal, even better than I expected) This first season is unlike anything I’ve ever listened to. I’ve heard lots of podcasts from people closely related to cases, but this is so thorough and well done. Subsequent cases are also well covered, respectful and present only reliable information. Sarah is so strong, brave and all around beyond impressive. So are so many of her guests. I could not recommend a podcast more.
