SHAINA ASHLEY KIRKPATRICKAge progressed photo showing what Shaina may have looked liked at 7 years old. She will be turning 14 in a few weeks.

Exactly one week ago today marked the 12th anniversary since the disappearance of Shaina Kirkpatrick, then 1, and her newborn baby sister, Shausha.

Kimyala Henson, the mother of both girls, had planned to take them on vacation to Sacramento, California and they were being joined by Henson’s friend, Christina Mayer and a man whom Mayer introduced as her husband, Curtis. They left their Portland home on April 4, 2001 enroute to Sacramento and although they are believed to have made it to California it is unclear if they made it to Sacramento.

It has been confirmed that on April 5, 2001, less than 24 hours after leaving their Portland home Henson and her daughters had travelled to Redding, California and were seen at Shasta’s Lodge with both Mayer and Oehring. This was the last confirmed sighting of the two girls and the last time their mother would be seen alive.

Henson’s murdered remains were located on April 29, 2001 in a Nevada desert but Shaina and Shausha’s whereabouts are still unknown.

Steven Kirkpatrick, the boyfriend of Henson and the father of both Shaina and Shausha had told authorities that both he and Henson had never met Curtis prior to April 2001 and police would soon learn that ‘Curtis’ was in fact Frank Oehring, a fugitive from Missouri who had a warrant out for his arrest at the time due to attempting to murder his ex-wife. According to his former wife Henson had led a group of Satanists and Mayer was a member.

Just over two weeks after both girls disappeared, on April 20, 2001, both Mayer and Oehring were discovered in a vehicle at a rest stop in Collier County, FL. Mayer was dead upon discovery after being shot to death and Oehring was near death suffering from a gun shot wound to the head. He died just days later at the hospital.

It was determined that Oehring was responsible in what police have called a ‘murder/suicide’. He also left behind letters detailing their plan to steal Henson’s birth certificate. Mayer had assumed the murdered woman’s identity in Las Vegas, NV shortly after they met up with her in Oregon. Nothing in the letter indicated they were responsible for the murder of Henson nor the disappearance of her two daughters however, common sense and the circumstantial evidence points to them and police believe they had something to do with it.

They two girls are considered at risk.

FBI in Tampa Still Investigating the Disappearance of Robert A. Wiles Who Was Kidnapped For Random Several Years Ago

Photo of Robert Wiles taken in 2003

Full Name: Robert Arthur Wiles
Nickname: Rob
Missing Since: 04/01/08
Missing From: Lakeland, FL
Date of Birth: September 23, 1981
Place of Birth: Sylvania, Ohio
Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
Height: 5’9″ Weight: 165 pounds
Race: White Sex: Male

Robert Wiles, then 26, was employed by a family owned Toledo-based business, National Flight Services, which is an aircraft maintenance company. He was a business development manager at the company’s branch and on April 1, 2008 he was working one of his shifts at Lakeland-Linder Regional Airport in Tampa, Florida when he suddenly disappeared. A co-worker told authorities he last seen Wiles at approximately 6:30PM and surveillance cameras show no sign of him after that time.

Wiles’ car was located abandoned in the parking lot at the family business, and he had missed a flight from Orlando to Dallas scheduled the day after his disappearance which immediately raised concerns.

robert-wilesA few days after Wiles went missing his parents, Thomas and Pamela Wiles in Ohio received a ransom letter demanding $750,000. The note was signed “Group X” and was emailed to them. His parents followed the notes instructions but no further demands were ever made.

According to reports, Wiles father had purchased kidnapping insurance for his company for the sum of $750,000 back in 2006, two years prior to his son’s disappearance. This indicates that whomever was responsible knew that information.

Authorities gathered enough evidence to arrest Stobert Lindell Holt, also known as Toby Holt, and on January 31, 2012 he was found guilty of manslaughter, extortion, and writing a threatening letter in connection with Wiles’ disappearance. However, Wiles has not been found.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Tampa, FL are seeking any information that will lead to the recovery of Robert Wiles.

Foul play is suspected.

Wiles will be turning 31 this year.

Debora G. Moody Disappeared From Her Long County Mobile Home In The Winter of 2007

debora-gail-moodyClassified: Missing
Full Name: Debora Gail DeLoach Moody
Missing From: Ludowici, Long County, Georgia
Birthdate: April 22,1965
Missing Date: Tue, 12/04/2007
Age Then: 42
Age Now: 47
Race: White
Sex: Female
Weight: 116
Height: 5′ 6″
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Brown
Scars/Marks: Has a scar on her right leg extending from her right ankle to her knee, and a surgical scar on her neck due to neck surgery a couple of months prior to her disappearance
Other: Debora wears prescription glasses

 

Debora Moody has been missing for over five years. She was last seen at her mobile home on Smiley Street off of Highway 196 in Ludowici on the evening of December 4, 2007.

Debora was an employee at C & S Construction and was working on the morning she went missing. Later that day at approximately 3:45PM she went to visit a friend at Fort Stewart in Hinesville, GA and after that she went to pick-up another friend in Liberty County and the two went back to Debora’s home.

According to the friend, Debora was acting normal and nothing seemed amiss. She stayed at her home for roughly 2 hours before heading home. Shortly after, Debora seemingly vanished.

Less than a week later, on December 10, 2007, after failing to get in touch with her, a relative contacted Long County Sheriff’s Office and filed a missing persons report.

When police searched her home they found her purse in her house, her car sitting in the driveway and her dog on a leash in the front yard. There was no indication of foul play. Surprisingly, she didn’t take her purse and her dog in the front yard indicated she was planning to come back soon.

Family members including Debora’s parents and (grown) son lived in Florida not too far from the Georgia Border. They spent alot of time in Georgia assisting in the investigation and searching. They claim she was in the process of a divorce and described her as an independent woman who enjoyed the country life. They say it is very uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning and believe something happened to her.

Due to the lack of evidence her case is being listed as a missing person rather than a crime.

Some reports spell her first name as “Deborah” however, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spells her name as “Debora”. According to the GBOI website, she could be going by her middle name, Gail.

Her case is listed on America’s Most Wanted with the latest airing on February 23, 2008. Her episode is posted on AMW but is currently unavailable.

She will be turning 48 in several weeks.

American College Student Vanished In Florence, Italy Almost One Decade Ago

Photos of Matthew A. Mullaney taken shortly before his 2003 disappearance

Matthew Mullaney was in his early twenties when he suddenly went missing nine years ago. He was born and raised in the United States but was attending college at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. He had previously attended Fairfield University in Connecticut but had flown to Italy in January 2003 to study art. It was his first semester of college abroad and he was excited at the opportunity to explore another country/culture. Loved ones described him as an outgoing, social, friendly young man with no known enemies.

A few weeks after arriving in Italy, Matthew disappeared. On the night of January 31, 2003, Matthew told his roommate he was heading to the Lions Fountain Irish pub in Florence, a local spot frequented by American students. Witnesses reported seeing him in the early morning hours (approx 2:30AM) standing outside the Pub, getting ready to leave. That was the last time he was seen. His roommate reported him missing the following day on February 1, 2003, when he didn’t return to their living-quarters and couldn’t be reached.

“According to the staff, his behavior was normal and he was chatting with other students in the bar while there,” the young man’s family would later say in a written statement posted on a website they created (http://www.matthewmullaney.com/)

The FBI has since become involved with this case and on their website under his case it lists him as possibly being in Europe. Those sightings are not confirmed and family members and friends say he would have most definitely contacted them unless he was put into a situation where he couldn’t reach out to them. (Ex; Abducted.)

A website titled Have You Seen Matt? was created by loved ones who’ve been without answers for years. At the top of the site there’s a little intro which says;

We are (Matt Mullaney’s family), a family desperate to find our son/brother. His gentle spirit, quick wit and beautiful smile is missing from our lives. Matt is loved and missed by so many. We have been relentless in our search for him since February of 2003. Please take the time to look at his face ( and read our story) We know this is our only hope of receiving word about him. We have faith that someone out there has an answer for us. We hope and pray that you will come forward. Please help us find Matt…
