    Eugene Prins

    Eugene Prins

    On March 26, 2020, 45-year-old Eugene Prins planned a short road trip with a friend to drop off a wood splitter. They started out in Woonsocket, South Dakota, and drove about 25 miles east to the tiny town of Fedora. After that, Eugene and his friend were spotted at a bar in Forestburg, which was along their route home. The last confirmed sighting of Eugene was at the bar. The truck they were in was seen on camera driving away from the bar at 7:38 PM. Other bar patrons said that you could tell they had been drinking, but Eugene didn’t appear to be visibly intoxicated, and he had mentioned that he wanted to go home, he had work in the morning. But according to Eugene’s friend, he made a detour to stop at a mutual friend’s farm. He went inside while Eugene stayed in the car. When the friend came out about 20 minutes later, Eugene was gone. And he has never been seen or heard from again. 

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Eugene Prins, please contact the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation at 605-773-3331.

    Cynthia Constantine

    Cynthia Constantine

    On July 11, 1969, 15-year-old Cynthia Constantine took her dog for a walk as she did every afternoon in the family’s hometown of Oakdale, New York. Cynthia loved walking along the railroad tracks alongside a busy highway and often explored the area with her brother. On this day, Cynthia walked with her dog alone, picking up cattails along the way. Cynthia had planned to go check out a muskrat burrow she spotted earlier in the day while with her brother. But Cynthia never returned home, and when the family dog came home without her, the family immediately knew something was wrong. Backtracking her steps, Cynthia’s mother and brother found a pile of cattails that Cynthia had likely collected and dropped. This is the spot where Cynthia is believed to have vanished from more than 53 years ago and has never been seen or heard from again.

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Cynthia Constantine, please call the Suffolk County Police Department at 631-852-6110

    Madeline Babcock

    Madeline Babcock

    It was during the summer of 1968 that a 35-year-old woman named Madeline Babcock disappeared from Venice, California. Madeline’s apartment appeared to have been cleared out. Her family reported her missing, but the police didn’t seem interested. Madeline had a right to move and not tell her family. She had the right to disappear if she wanted to. Around this same time, a little girl in Washington believed she witnessed her father and his friend murder a woman. These two stories would move parallel through time over a period of decades before eventually converging once that little girl grew up and started looking for answers to the memory that had plagued her for years.

    If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Madeline Babcock, please contact the Los Angeles Police Department’s Adult Missing Persons Unit at (877) 275-5273 or the Vancouver Police Department at (360) 693-3111.

    George James

    George James

    22-year-old George James was last seen by his family on November 23, 1998. He argued with his mother at her Millbrook, Alabama, home and stormed off. Something seemed to be weighing heavily on George, like he needed to escape some sort of danger. George’s mother, Tillis, was confused by this interaction but never imagined this would be the last time she would ever see her son. As the days passed with no word from George, Tillis reported him missing. And since that day, she has never stopped searching for her son. 

    If you have any information about the disappearance of George James, please contact the Montgomery Police Department at 334-625-2532.

    Daniel Reoch

    Daniel Reoch

    On November 25, 2019, 29-year-old Daniel Reoch was in the custody of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Squamish, British Columbia. They picked Daniel up while walking along a rural road in temperatures just barely above freezing, and he was not dressed for the weather. Daniel called his uncle, but something didn’t seem right- his demeanor was off, he was in the midst of a crisis- and the police and Daniel’s family were concerned. But they couldn’t hold him, and he was released from custody that evening. Twelve hours later, he’d vanish into the dark of night, walking off into the darkness of another road in a rural part of the Squamish Valley, never to be seen again.

    If you have any information about the disappearance of Daniel Reoch, please call the Squamish Royal Canadian Mounted Police at 604-892-6100. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-(TIPS).

I look forward to every episode

I’ve been listening to The Vanished since the podcast launched in 2016. I’m surprised it took me this long to write a review. I’m a massive fan, they take great care with every story and it is always compelling, helpful and detailed. It’s truly the best podcast. Marissa does a fantastic job with every episode.

Another great episode

And more great info given by family. Our person went missing so the cops must be dealing drugs. Facepalm. Please stop with the family/acquaintance interviews. They’re rarely helpful.

Questionable

Four episodes dedicated to a known drug dealer who lost $90k from selling drugs then ends up “missing”.

I fail to see the importance here. Listening to the individuals who knew him does not make me think highly of their choices.

Yes, there is a big difference between someone who was just walking home vs a drug dealer. He made certain choices in life that have certain consequences.
