The Northwest’s Most Baffling Missing Persons Cases You’ve Never Heard Of

Presented by Dr. Sean Munger, Historian

A husband comes home from work to find his wife gone, her car in the driveway, wedding ring on the desk. A spider enthusiast vanishes on his way home from a local bar. A high school student goes on a road trip with a friend and is never seen again. The Pacific Northwest has its share of missing persons, but some of the

strangest and most inexplicable cases have, for the most part, never been publicized. This presentation will profile some of the more mysterious missing persons cases in Washington and Oregon history, going back to the 1940s. It may just challenge your assumptions about who goes missing, and why.
