  • (upbeat mysterious music)

  • - Well, there goes my career as a magician.

  • Welcome, everyone, to a brand new Top Ten.

  • My name is Matthew Santoro and today is

  • all about people that vanished.

  • That's right.

  • Gone without a trace and surprisingly,

  • there are more than a few documented instances

  • of people who have disappeared with no explanation.

  • So, today we are going to dive into these bizarre cases

  • of human disappearances that still

  • have not been solved to this day.

  • So, let's get to it.

  • Here are ten mysterious disappearances

  • that were never explained.

  • Number One is Louis Le Prince.

  • Louis Le Prince is known today as

  • the Father of Cinematography

  • for shooting the first moving pictures on paper film

  • using a single lens camera.

  • Unfortunately, that achievement is not

  • what he's most famous for.

  • On September 16th of 1890,

  • Le Prince was on a train bound for the UK

  • where he was patenting his new camera when

  • he inexplicably vanished.

  • Not a single trace of him was found on the train,

  • though passengers claimed seeing him there.

  • His luggage and belongings vanished with him and

  • none of the train doors were open to suggest that he jumped.

  • Multiple theories have been presented to make sense of

  • Le Prince's disappearance, including an assassination plot

  • made by Thomas Edison.

  • Well, I mean, David Copperfield once made

  • a whole train vanish, so, you know,

  • back in the day maybe they just started a little smaller.

  • You know ...

  • with people.

  • Number Two is The Springfield Three.

  • On June 2, 1992, Sherrill Levitt, her daughter

  • and a family friend all vanished

  • from Levitt's Missouri home.

  • Two younger women, Suzy Streeter and Stacy McCall,

  • attended a graduation party and headed back around 2:15 am.

  • This was the last time any of the three were seen.

  • Police were alerted to the missing women

  • by a family friend but were baffled when they found

  • their clothes, purses and keys all in house,

  • and Levitt's car still in the driveway.

  • In fact, the only odd thing about the scene was

  • a smashed light bulb on the front porch.

  • What makes the story even more bizarre

  • is that a man named Robert Craig Cox came forward

  • claiming to know that all three women were, in fact,

  • murdered and that their bodies would never be found.

  • But, because of the lack of evidence,

  • they couldn't charge him.

  • You know, this is alarmingly similar to the plot

  • of the movie "Fracture,"

  • except this guy isn't nearly as creepy as Anthony Hopkins.

  • Nobody's as creepy as Anthony Hopkins.

  • Number Three is Jimmy Hoffa.

  • On July 30th, 1975, 62-year-old union activist and

  • convicted criminal, Jimmy Hoffa, disappeared from

  • a restaurant parking lot in Oakland County, Michigan.

  • He had gone to the restaurant to meet

  • with two Mafia leaders,

  • leading many to believe that he had been

  • murdered by The Mob.

  • This mystery got wide-spread media attention due to

  • Hoffa's former role as the President of the

  • International Brotherhood of Teamsters,

  • a well-known labor union.

  • Rumors about where Hoffa ended up are

  • still coming in to this day and include being

  • burned and buried in oil drums,

  • put through a wood chipper and even

  • buried under the New York Giants' end zone.

  • So, if a player ever trips over a rock during a game,

  • that's not a rock.

  • It's a skull.

  • Number Four is Rebecca Coriam.

  • On March 21st, 2011, Rebecca Coriam,

  • a 24-year-old youth worker aboard

  • the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship,

  • disappeared from the vessel while it traveled

  • through the Pacific Ocean.

  • Nobody knows exactly what happened,

  • but security footage shows Rebecca in

  • a very heated phone conversation,

  • which was the very last time she was ever seen.

  • Rebecca's parents and some of her co-workers claim

  • that Disney and the Royal Bahamas police know more than

  • they're saying, but no further evidence was ever found.

  • Ah, but the plot thickens.

  • Somehow, well after vanishing from the ship,

  • Rebecca's credit cards were used and,

  • according to her uncle,

  • the password to her Facebook profile was changed.

  • So, the question is,

  • is this the work of an imposter or hacker,

  • or is Rebecca's ghost just getting really good wi-fi

  • from Davey Jones' Locker?

  • Yarr.

  • She's the newest Disney Pirate of the Caribbean, matey.

  • Yarr.

  • Sorry, no disrespect.

  • She dead.

  • Number Five is Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

  • Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lampur on

  • March 8, 2014 at 12:41 am local time,

  • and lost contact with air traffic control

  • less than an hour in, what is largely considered,

  • one of the biggest aviation mysteries in all of history.

  • According to reports, the plane drastically changed

  • its flight path and vanished from radar.

  • None of the 239 passengers and crew have ever been found.

  • At the time, the incident gained the record as both

  • the deadliest aviation incident to occur

  • in Malaysian Airlines history and

  • the deadliest involving a 777.

  • Unbelievably, these records were both broken only

  • 131 days later with the crashing of Flight 17.

  • Hi, there.

  • Need a cheap flight but don't want the hassle

  • of actually making it safely to your destination?

  • Well, the Malaysian Airlines has a ride for you.

  • Number Six is Frederick Valentich.

  • On October 21st, 1978,

  • Australian pilot, Frederick Valentich,

  • was flying over Australia's Bass Strait

  • when he radioed in that an unidentified flying object

  • was following him.

  • According to the transcript, the UFO was tracking him,

  • stopped in mid-air and then vanished.

  • His final transmission was

  • "It's hovering and it's not an aircraft,"

  • followed by white noise.

  • No trace of Valentich or his plane was ever discovered.

  • Okay, see, this one makes me kind of uncomfortable.

  • Not just because this is one more piece of evidence

  • to support the existence of aliens

  • which totally freaks me out,

  • but, because, if they did in fact get him,

  • his butt likely became an alien pincushion.

  • Ouch.

  • Number Seven is Bela Kiss.

  • In July, 1916, Hungarian police raided the home of

  • Bela Kiss while he was serving in World War One.

  • To their horror, the team found the bodies of 24 women,

  • all with puncture wounds on their necks and

  • their blood completely drained,

  • which lead many to believe that Kiss was a vampire.

  • Ah, but it gets weirder,

  • because on October 4th, investigators tracked the killer

  • to a Serbian hospital only to find upon their arrival

  • that he had vanished and a dead soldier was in his bed,

  • where he had recently been.

  • Ah, but the story gets weirder,

  • because just four years later in 1920,

  • a man matching Kiss' description and

  • using one of the man's aliases appeared,

  • serving in the French Foreign Legion but again,

  • suddenly disappeared just before police arrived.

  • Finally, in 1932, the same man once again surfaced,

  • this time in New York City.

  • Now, many people reported him working as a janitor,

  • but when officers when there to question him,

  • the vampire vanished for the final time.

  • Nobody knows what happened to him or

  • how he managed to evade capture so many times,

  • which is especially odd to me.

  • I mean, it's got to be hard walking around undetected

  • when you sparkle in the sunlight.

  • You'd look like a freak show walking around.

  • Number Eight is The Royal Norfolk Regiment.

  • War is definitely scary but a battalion of

  • British World War One soldiers had to fear not only

  • their enemies but paranormal forces as well.

  • In 1915, three officers watched as a regiment of

  • 250 men marched up a hill in Suvla Bay, Turkey and

  • into a dense fog that had settled on the ground.

  • But, after the last man entered, the mist lifted

  • to reveal that, shockingly, every last soldier had vanished.

  • Since no bodies were ever found, when the war ended

  • that British government demanded the return of their men,

  • only to have Turkey deny that they'd ever encountered

  • the British regiment at all.

  • (screeching eerily)

  • That's some creepy (bleep).

  • Number Nine is MV Joyita.

  • Easily one of the most unsettling

  • maritime mysteries of all time,

  • the MV Joyita, a merchant vessel,

  • left port in Samoa on October 3rd, 1955

  • with 25 people aboard and was found five weeks later

  • on November 10th, half submerged and completely abandoned.

  • The radio on board was set to

  • the International Distress Channel,

  • one of the engines was completely covered

  • in mattresses, of all things,

  • and all of the lifeboats were missing.

  • To make matters even more creepy,

  • investigators found that all of the clocks

  • had mysteriously frozen to read 10:25 and

  • a doctor's bag was discovered full of bloody bandages.

  • What happened aboard the MV Joyita and

  • her crew's whereabouts are unknown to this day,

  • although many have theorized that pirates,

  • lunacy or even aliens could be to blame.

  • My money's on the pirate alien lunatics.

  • Arrgh.

  • I don't know what that was.

  • And Number Ten, the Colony of Roanoke.

  • On August 18th, 1590, John White landed on

  • Roanoke Island, returning from England with supplies

  • for a colony he'd helped establish just three years prior.

  • However, instead of the village of 117 settlers

  • that he'd left behind, White found the entire area

  • completely devoid of human life.

  • On top of that, every makeshift building had been

  • taken down by hand and the only signs left for him

  • were the word "Croatoan," carved on a wooden post

  • and the word "Crow" carved into a nearby tree.

  • To this very day, nobody can say

  • what happened to the colonists,

  • but the story has been portrayed in many books,

  • films, television shows and, most often,

  • in the horror genre.

  • Well, according to this document that I have in my hand

  • that is totally factual and in no way completely off

  • the top of my head,

  • "Croatoan" is a first-nation word that means

  • "Oh, Mama, there's a monster on the island, Mama, no."

  • That's the translation.

  • And, those my friends, were ten mysterious disappearances

  • that were never solved.

  • Now, you know know why you carry

  • a cell phone with you everywhere.

  • You never know who's going to try to take you.
