    One search, two boys found: The Missouri Miracle 10 years ago

    It was called the “Missouri Miracle.” For once, a screaming headline was an understatement.

    Ten years ago Thursday, FBI agents and police officers entered a small apartment in Kirkwood to cap their search for Ben Ownby, a boy who had been snatched four days before from a rural school bus stop in Franklin County. Sitting quietly on a sofa was a second boy, a teenager.

    He was Shawn Hornbeck, who had disappeared more than four years earlier from his own rural neighborhood in Washington County. He was still listed as a missing person, and almost everyone but his family had given up hope of finding him alive.


    Ben went back to school. Now 23, he lives, works and goes to college in the St. Louis area. He attended the retirement party for Toelke, who left office after 28 years as sheriff. Toelke said that Ownby “is doing really well. He’s into video production and has shown me some of his work.”

    Hornbeck, now 25, went to a private school in St. Louis and got a job at a factory in Pevely. In 2013, he had tattoos etched onto each forearm, one saying “Respect,” the other “Faith.” Both are important, he said.

    Children kidnapped in Warwick in 1985 found in Texas; Mother arrested

    Rhode Island State Police said Tuesday that a woman who abducted her two daughters in Warwick more than 30 years ago were found in Texas, where all three were living under aliases.

    State police said they arrested the girls' mother, Elaine Yates, on Monday. Yates is being returned to Rhode Island to face two counts of child snatching. Police said she did not have custody of the girls.

    Investigators said they received an anonymous tip on Dec. 23 that led them to Houston, where they found the family.

    Kelly Yates is now 32, and Kimberly Yates is 35.

    Canadian man who disappeared in 2012 is found 6,500 miles away in the Amazon jungle after walking barefoot across two continents

    A Canadian man who has been missing for five years has been found more than 6,500 miles away in the Amazon jungle.

    Anton Pilipa trekked across two continents, walking mostly barefoot with just the clothes on his back, after he disappeared from his Vancouver home in 2012.

    His family spent years desperately searching for the former humanitarian worker, who suffers from suspected schizophrenia, and had almost given up hope when they got a call out of the blue.

    A Canadian-born Brazilian cop spotted Pilipa, who she initially mistook for a beggar, shuffling down a dirt track in bare feet, and dirty, unwashed Bermuda shorts and a vest. He had no passport, without without any form of identification.

    Before and after: Anton Pilipa who suffers from schizophrenia, disappeared from his home in
    Toronto in 2012 (pictured left, before his trip and right, after he was found and taken to hospital)

    Incredibly, with help of several international agencies and embassies, she was able to track down his family who flew down to be reunited with their lost loved one.

    'I was stunned,' Anton's brother Stefan told the DailyMail.com. 'I told myself that he was dead. Because that was the only thing I could come up with that explained his absence.

    'But in my heart of hearts, I didn't think he could be. '

    'I was really shocked,' added Stefan, who said he'd spent years asking himself the same question, ''Where is he? What happened to him?'

    Father of two who disappeared in 2015 ID'd after skeletal remains were found by a squirrel hunter

    Authorities in Alabama have identified the skeletal remains of a 23-year-old man who went missing nearly two years ago.

    Derek Washington was reported missing near Birmingham almost two years ago.

    Last month, a squirrel hunter stumbled upon skeletal remains in Jefferson County and alerted authorities.

    The hunter then notified Jefferson County sheriffs, who ordered a forensic investigation of the remains.

    The medical examiners issued a report saying that the remains belonged to a male between the ages of 18 and 28.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The report said that the remains were positively identified on Tuesday as those of Derek Dewayne Washington of Birmingham, Alabama.

    Washington, a father of two young girls, was reported missing in April 2015.

    Authorities are now proceeding with a homicide investigation.

    Washington’s mother, Jessica Jackson, said that her son was last seen with people whom he knew.

    ‘We have heard over 15 stories but none panned out,’ she told AL.com.

    ‘I am praying that my son is on the run and not dead, but it is a possibility he could be.’

    Jackson said that until a few months ago she would occasionally field anonymous phone calls, but those calls eventually stopped.

    Missing man found in the stomach of 20-foot-long snake

    A man who went missing in Indonesia earlier this week was near his own garden — inside the stomach of a 20-foot long snake.

    The Straits Times —an English-speaking newspaper in Singapore — reports that Akbar Salubiro was last seen on Sunday morning when he went off to harvest palm oil. After he didn’t return home that evening, a search party was formed.

    On Monday, those searching for Akbar found the giant snake lying dead just feet from Akbar’s house. According to the Times, Akbar’s boots were clearly visible in the snake’s stomach. Villagers used a knife to cut open the snake and remove the corpse.

    It's assumed the python choked Akbar to death, and the python then choked while attempting to swallow Akbar. It's common for pythons to choke on large animals they attempt to eat.

    Jane Doe Fatally Struck in Huntington Beach Crash Identified After 27 Years: OCDA

    A woman who was fatally struck by two cars in Huntington Beach nearly three decades ago has finally been identified as a 26-year-old woman from Virginia, officials announced.


    Andrea Kuiper, 26, is seen in a photo released by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on May 11, 2017.

    Andrea Kuiper was identified through fingerprints on May 4. Kuiper was struck and killed by two cars on April 1, 1990, while trying to cross Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach. She was unidentified for 27 years.

    Investigators revisited the case many times in hopes of figuring out who she was and where she was from. A break in the case happened earlier this year when the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System joined forces with the FBI and got a forensic match. The match came from a fingerprint project that closely examined the fingerprints of unidentified decedents against a growing database of old fingerprints.

    “We are thankful to know what happened to our daughter after all these years,” Richard Kuiper, Andrea’s father, said in a released statement. “Andrea was loved and respected. She was beautiful. But she was manic depressive, and therefore we had been through quite an adventure.”

    Missing woman found after she bottled her own scent

    A missing elderly woman from Florida was located when a police dog successfully followed her bottled scent.

    The endangered woman, who has dementia, was missing from her home for two hours before police arrived with a sniffer dog.

    K9 Ally was able to follow the scent kit, which the woman completed two-and-a-half years ago, and found her in less than five minutes.

    To preserve a scent, the person must wipe a sterile pad under their armpit and store it in a jar. It can preserve a person’s scent for up to seven years.

    “Her kit was completed about two and a half years ago. The scent kit helped K9 Ally and Deputy Williams locate her in less than 5 minutes!” posted Citrus County Sheriff's Office.

    “The woman was returned home safely and K9 Ally was rewarded with a special treat, a tasty vanilla ice cream cone!

    “Great job Deputy Williams and K9 Ally!”

    Manufacturers say a scent kit works better than an item of clothing when tracking a missing person as it hasn’t been contaminated with other scents or odours.

    Skeletal remains found in 50-year search for missing woman on Long Island

    A chilling discovery in Suffolk County could solve the more than 50-year search for a missing woman.

    Skeletal remains were found Monday in the basement of a home in Southold. Police found the remains searching the home, looking for clues in the 1966 disappearance of Louise Pietrewicz.

    The home previously belonged to Pietrewicz's married boyfriend, William Boken, who was a suspect in her disappearance. Boken, a Southold police officer, died in 1982.


    CREEPY MYSTERY SOLVED?? The current owner of this home in Southold told me, at times over the years..his family had thought they had seen a ghost. Turns out...human remains were found here yesterday, buried beneath the cellar. More than 50 years ago.. 38-year-old Louise Pietrewicz disappeared. She was last seen in 1966, in the company of her married boyfriend at the time, William Boken, who was a Southold police officer who lived her with his wife!!! Thanks to the tenacity of the local paper, the Suffolk Times Review.. seems a 50-year mystery is now solved. We’ll have all the reaction from police and Pietrewicz’s family, at 5 on ABC7NYOld photos, courtesy Times Review Media Group

    Skeletal remains on Long Island identified as Louise Pietrewicz, missing since 1966
    By Travis Fedschun | Fox News

    Human remains discovered last month buried in the basement of a home on New York's Long Island have been identified as that of a woman who went missing in 1966, officials announced on Wednesday.

    The Suffolk County Medical Examiner said the skeletal remains found underneath the home in Southold, located on the North Folk of the island, were that of 38-year-old Louise Pietrewicz.

    Pietrewicz left behind an 11-year-old daughter at the time of her disappearance in October 1966. Sandy Blampied told The Suffolk Times on Wednesday she was called by Southold Det. Sgt. John Sinning, who was at the home the morning the remains were found on March 19.

    “I just broke down,” she told the newspaper. “I just broke down and cried. It is so hard to believe what has happened. I still can’t believe it. This was my mother.”

    The home once belonged to Pietrewicz's married boyfriend at the time, William Boken, a former Town of Southold cop, who died in 1982. He was the prime suspect in Pietrewicz's disappearance.

    The ex-cop was arrested in Dec. 1967 on a domestic violence charge for beating his wife, according to the Suffolk Times. After the arrest, his wife and two children had no contact with him for the final 14 years of his life, the paper reported.


    The medical examiner's office did not give a cause of death when announcing the identification of the remains on Wednesday, but Blampied told the Suffolk Times she is "optimistic" they will eventually be able to find out.

    The Suffolk Times published a lengthy special section on the Cutchogue woman’s disappearance last October that prompted police to reopen the missing person case.

    The basement had been searched and parts of it dug up in 2013 with no results, Suffolk police said in a news release.

    Detectives conducted the new search using ground penetrating sonar to guide them on where to dig, which led them to the remains in March.

    Pietrewicz’s brother, Leo Jasinski, also praised the work of Sinning who "looked out" for the family.

    “He’s looked out for us,” he told The Suffolk Times. “I choked up. I have never forgotten Louise and I never will. She was my sister. It is over now.”

    123 missing children recovered in Michigan

    A one-day sweep by multiple law enforcement agencies in Wayne County resulted in the recovery of 123 missing children, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

    The sweep, dubbed Operation MISafeKid and conducted on Sept. 26, involved the Detroit Missing Child Recovery Unit of the U.S. Marshals Sex Offender Investigations Branch coordinated with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development — Office of Inspector General, Michigan State Police and law enforcement officers from other Wayne County agencies.

    The effort, in particular, was aimed at locating victims of sex trafficking.

    During the one-day operation, out of 301 case files, 123 children were identified and recovered safely. "Three cases were identified as being possible sex trafficking cases, and one homeless teen was transported back to the command post after it was discovered that he had not had anything to eat in three days. He was then debriefed and turned over to Child Protective Services for aftercare," the U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release.

    The agency said the sweep was the first operation of its kind in Wayne County.

    "The message to the missing children and their families that we wish to convey is that we will never stop looking for you," a release said.

    It's strange, there is NO UPDATE for Her. Just Articles from around the Time She Went Missing to being found. To a Notice of Her "Memorial" Service. So NO CAUSE OF DEATH RELEASED. NOTHING!
