    Thank You for Posting this. I unfamiliar with it. What a COMPLETE DISASTER! 1st THE "Murderer" SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN HAVING ANY AFFAIR! 2nd. She made some BAD Choices. Getting involved with a "Married Man" IS NOT A GOOD IDEA! IF THE MAN GETS MAD, THEY ARE GOING TO PROTECT THEIR SENSE OF STABILITY AND REGARD, THEIR "Family"! So what happened, in My Opinion, She said I am tired of this! Wanted to just stop "The Affair, And TO HIM, HIM LOSING HIS"Side Action WASN'T ACCPTABLE.And may have said "Unless You Divorce Your wife, Etc. I am NOT DOING THIS ANYMORE, AND I AM TELLING YOUR "WIFE" TO WHICH HE FELT FEAR OF LOSING EVERYTHING IMPORTANT TO HIM. Her Remains were found in a "Cellar" AND THIS ONE IS A VERY GOOD REASON WHY I DON'T! I AM NOT BLAMING THE "Victim" NO ONE DESERVES THAT! BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO UNFORTUNATELY PUT THEMSELVES IN BAD SITUATIONS. AND SURELY THERE WAS SOMEONE. WAITING.

    Family find bones of father missing for nearly 60 years under basement

    The remains of a father of four who went missing in 1961 have been discovered buried under the basement of his former home by his bereaved son and grandsons.

    George Carroll disappeared in 1961 from his Long Island home in New Yorkstate in 1961, when his son, Michael, was just eight months old.


    Michael’s mother Dorothy would never give him or his brothers and sisters a convincing answer about what had happened, only saying Mr Carroll had walked out one day and not come back.

    Rumours of foul play abounded during the younger Mr Carroll’s childhood but he was never able to properly quiz his mother, who also failed to file a missing persons report.


    “I was always told, ‘Don’t ask,’” Mr Carroll told the New York Post. “So I stopped asking.”

    Mrs Carroll died in 1998, leaving only unanswered questions and the home in Lake Grove, a small village on Long Island, to Mr Carroll, who moved in with his own family.

    Three years ago, his curiosity got the better of him and he began seriously trying to find any evidence of his father in the basement.

    At one point, he brought in a psychic, who he said pointed to a specific spot in the cement basement floor.

    “There was a guy who came to my basement, and he went to the right spot and said, ‘The energy is here,’” Mr Carroll said.

    Eventually, he and his two adult sons began digging through the floor to try and clear up the mystery once and for all.

    Using ground-penetrating radar, the 57-year-old thought he could spot something about six feet below the layer of concrete which was worth investigating.

    The project to dig down took years. At one point he worried he had damaged the foundations and later he was laid low by a stroke. His sons continued the work sporadically.

    Finally, the day before Halloween, when they were digging at the exact spot the psychic had identified years earlier, the Carrolls found human remains.

    “They were twisted in a knot, weird-looking,” Mr Carroll said. “It was down and twisted in the dirt...not totally exposed, either.”

    Now, authorities have tested the bones dug out from under the basement and confirmed through DNA testing they did belong to George Carroll.

    The skull showed evidence of blunt force trauma and local police have opened a murder investigation.

    Man Missing for Years, Presumed Dead Is Reunited With Family After Chance Encounter Outside San Diego Costco

    A chance encounter outside a Costco in the Mount Hope area of San Diego helped solve the five-year-old mystery of a missing man a family believed was dead.

    Alicia Clark and her wife Claudette first saw David McCovery a few weeks ago in the median, panhandling, according to San Diego television station KGTV.

    “He was hobbling and only had one shoe, and his foot was swollen,” said Alicia Clark.

    They bought him shoes, socks and food, and talked with him.

    “Claudette asked if he needed anything else, and he said, ‘I just want to go home,'” said Clark.

    Home, he told them, was Moss Point, Mississippi.

    Five years ago, McCovery says he getting his life back together after a stint in prison. He volunteered to help drive his brother’s friend to San Diego to see his child. When he got here, the man asked him to go inside a Burger King to get a drink.

    “When I got outside, I looked around, and he wasn’t there,” said McCovery, now 61.

    Without a phone or money, he ended up on the streets. Having recently suffered a stroke, he became confused. He couldn’t remember contact numbers for his family. And so he panhandled and survived.

    Pittsburgh woman who disappeared in 1964 after husband said she left family found buried in her backyard

    Skeletal remains were found by construction workers in February 2018, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Police confirmed last week that they belonged to Mary Arcuri, who was 36 when her husband claimed she left their family and was never to be seen again, the paper reported.

    Mary Arcuri and Albert Arcuri bought the home at 5445 Black St in the early 1960s. Four years later, Albert reportedly told his family that Mary left the home and took all her belongings with her. No police or missing person report was ever filed.


    The prompt disappearance sparked whispers among the town, including that the two had been having relationship problems and Albert accused Mary of cheating.


    Charles Sberna, Mary Arcuri’s great-nephew, told the Post Gazette his family even believed his great-uncle had murdered his great-aunt. He remembered Arcuri as a man who “didn’t like kids; he was mean.”



    Police said they cannot speculate on how Mary Arcuri died or why she was buried in the backyard. Albert Arcuri died in 1965 in a car accident.



    When the skeletal remains were found last year, police consulted with retired Assistant Chief Therese Rocco, who led the bureau’s missing person unit for years and was the godmother of Arcuri’s daughter.

    Cops initially thought the remains were of another woman, but Rocco provided them with detective copies of a report and dental records that disproved that belief.

    Rocco soon learned that the home had been owned by Arcuris and remembered the rumors that had swirled.

    Investigators looked into Acuri’s disappearance and used a living relative’s DNA to confirm the identification.

    Hikers missing in Southern California mountains found safe
    [​IMG]

    Gabrielle Wallace, 31, of Rancho Cucamonga and Eric Desplinter, 33, of Chino Hills went missing Saturday in the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles.
    A search team found two sets of footprints in Cucamonga Canyon, south of Mount Baldy, and followed them. A helicopter sent to the area spotted two people near a campfire, according to a statement from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
    The hikers were to be flown to the Mount Baldy fire station to be reunited with their families and paramedics would determine whether they need further treatment, the statement said.
    The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, which helped with the search, described the pair as being "safely" located but there were no immediate details about their conditions.
    "Miracles happen, and this is a miracle," Mike Leum with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a tweet.
    The hikers vanished while heading toward the 8,860-foot (2,700-meter) Cucamonga Peak near Mount Baldy. Desplinter was described as an experienced hiker and the two were carrying proper equipment for the icy conditions.
    Search-and-rescue teams from six counties volunteered to help comb some 30 square miles (77.7 square kilometers) of the mountains, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
    The two had set out with a group of four people but the other two turned back out of concern about the danger of the trail, KABC-TV reported.
    Brenda Wallace, Gabrielle's mother, told KCBS-TV that Desplinter was her daughter's boss and that her daughter had recently bought hiking gear for the trip.
    "I know he wouldn't leave her and she wouldn't leave him," she said.

    A missing toddler drove himself down to the county fair on his toy tractor

    How far can a little one really go?

    Well, one determined Minnesota 2-year-old got himself all the way down to the county fair, according to the Chisago County Sheriff's Office.

    The sheriff's office received a call Friday night about a missing toddler, according to a Facebook post from the office.

    But the determined tyke wasn't in danger -- he just decided he wasn't done at the fair.

    The young boy hopped on his battery-powered John Deere toy tractor and drove it down the sidewalk to a back entrance of the festivities, according to CNN affiliate KMBC.

    The journey was a little over a block, according to Sgt. Jason Foster.

    Sheriff's deputies found him next to the Tilt-a-Whirl, his favorite ride, the station reported.

    "He was reunited with dad," the sheriff's office said, "who promptly suspended his son's license by removing the battery from it."

    Police: Missing 4-year-old N.C. girl found in Texas with human traffickers

    missing 4-year-old Fayetteville, N.C. girl who authorities had considered endangered was found in Texas with human traffickers, police said.

    A.R., 4, was reported missing in late May, along with her 23-year-old mother, Carmen Lowe.

    As the missing person investigation continued to progress, detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department say they obtained information that Lowe took her daughter out of North Carolina, in direct violation of a custody order issued by a Cumberland County judge.

    Lowe was part of a human trafficking operation being investigated by the FBI, authorities said.

    The child was pretty much given to a pimp, an associate of the pimp or family of the pimp for keeping,” said Maj. Robert Ramirez of the Fayetteville Police. “It is a ring. It is a human trafficking ring that the FBI was investigating. These individuals had other children as well for other girls were actually working this human trafficking operation.”

    Authorities said Lowe did not return A.R. to her father after a custody visit.

    Police believe Lowe traveled to New Jersey and Louisiana after leaving North Carolina with her daughter.

    A was found in a home in Lewisville, Texas.

    A and her father Mario were reunited Friday.
