In January of 2015, 42-year-old Joann Hakes went missing from Afton, Wyoming. She had been living at the Silver Stream Lodge with her boyfriend, a man named Ronald Weerheim. On the night of January 3rd, Joann and Ronald were drinking at the bar on the property of the Silver Stream. According to Ron, Joann was drunk and making a scene, so they left.

Rank #8: Episode 33 - Jesse Ross

Podcast cover
Read more
19-year-old Jesse Ross was visiting Chicago while attending a model UN conference with teammates from the University of Missouri - Kansas City.  Around 2 am on November 21st, 2006, Jesse is called to an emergency meeting of the UN conference's security council. At this point in the evening, Jesse had been to a dance and a party at the hotel where the conference was being held, the Sheraton Hotel and Towers.

Jesse makes it to this emergency meeting, but leaves around 30 minutes later. He leaves through a rear entrance, and this is the last time anyone ever saw Jesse. Police would posit that Jesse somehow made his way to the Chicago River, immediately behind the hotel, and somehow fell in and was carried out into Lake Michigan. But filmmaker Brian Rose, who has been working on a film about Jesse since 2013, has evidence that this theory has some major problems.

For today's episode, we speak with Brian Rose, creator of the upcoming documentary When I Last Saw Jesse, and Jesse's father, Donald Ross.

Rank #15: Episode 31 - Nancy Paulikas

Podcast cover
Read more
On October 15th, 2016, 55 year old Nancy Paulikas visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, also known as LACMA, with her husband Kirk and some other family members. The year before, Nancy was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease. She had severe dementia and had problems communicating, and by October of 2016, caring for her was Kirk's full time job.

The trip to LACMA was going well, and Nancy was having a good day. But when the two got separated, Nancy vanished. After an hour of not finding her around the museum, Kirk called the police. Shockingly, Nancy has never been found.

The last traces of her are surveillance video images of her on Wilshire and McCarthy Vista, an intersection not far from LACMA. Since her disappearance, Kirk, along with an incredible team of friends and family, has mounted an incredible effort to find her. Both Kirk's team and investigators believe it is likely that Nancy is alive, right now, in a medical facility where they cannot get any information about her, and that she may be misidentified with an incorrect social security number.
