    Hello, this thread will be about disappearing that never have a answer. they simply vanished without a trace

    British diplomat Benjamin Bathurst vanished into thin air in 1809. Bathurst was returning to Hamburg with a companion after a mission to the Austrian court. Along the way, they had stopped for dinner at an inn in the town of Perelberg. Upon finishing the meal, they returned to their waiting horse-drawn coach. Bathurst’s companion watched as the diplomat stepped over to the front of the coach to examine to horses – and simply vanished without a trace.

    Mysterious Disappearance at the Lincoln Tunnel

    Lincoln tunnel

    Jackson Wright and wife Martha, was driving from New Jersey to New York City passing through the Lincoln Tunnel in 1975. Jackson Wright stated that while inside the tunnel, he pulled over their car to clean and wipe the car’s windshield which became blurred from condensation. Jackson wiped the front windshield while his wife went to back side of the car to helped wipe the back windshield. When Jackson Wright, turned around, ho found out his wife was gone and mysteriously disappeared, Jackson claimed he never heard or saw unusual things that would take place for Martha’s disappearance, thus, police investigations could not find any evidence linking to the strange disappearance of Martha Jackson. The Lincoln Tunnel, nowadays, is considered to be one of the most high-risk terrorist target sites in the United States, because of frequent robbery hide away route. Other sites in New Jersey include the Holland Tunnel and PATH station at the Exchange Place, and the Port of Newark in Elizabeth, found in Jersey City.

    Moving image pioneer Louis Le Prince remembered
    [​IMG]

    You may not be aware but the godfather of the moving image lived and worked in Leeds.

    Or the claim that he was the victim of industrial espionage and was possibly even murdered because of his work.

    Louis Le Prince recorded the first moving images in Leeds at Roundhay Park and on Leeds Bridge in 1888.

    An English Heritage blue plaque can be found on the bridge honouring the historic moment.

    Louis Le Prince was born in Metz, France on 28 August 1842 and moved to Leeds in 1866 to work for John Whitley Partners of Hunslet Brass Founders.

    In 1869 he married Elizabeth Whitley John's sister - a talented artist. The pair founded Leeds Technical School of Art.

    Le Prince's revolutionary 16 lens camera
    Louis Le Prince created his 16 lens camera, which was used to record the world's first moving images, at 160 Woodhouse Lane (a site now owned by the University of Leeds).

    His first film was created in 1888 called "Roundhay Garden Scene" and his second and more famous "Leeds Bridge Scene" came in the same year.

    Just two years after making his revolutionary recordings, Le Prince mysteriously vanished after boarding a train in Dijon, France. His body and luggage were never found and the case remained unsolved.

    Now a new exhibition at Leeds Industrial Museum will commemorate 120 years since his unexplained disappearance by celebrating the genius and legacy of Leeds' adopted son by holding a series of events.

    Visitors will have a chance to see how a replica of his revolutionary camera worked, watch the world's first moving images in the mills' cinema and learn about his disappearance.

    A workshop will look at the key theories surrounding Le Prince's disappearance and help visitors decide which one is most likely to be true. Children will get the chance to do some detective activities like code breaking and finger printing.

    Several theories explaining Le Prince's disappearance have been proposed including claims he was murdered so he could not claim patents on his groundbreaking 16 lens camera, a close relative was involved in his disappearance to gain a large inheritance and his family ordered him to disappear due to financial irregularities.

    The events take place at Leeds Industrial Museum, Armley Mills, Canal Road in Armley from Tuesday 17 August to Thursday 19 August 2010. details of all the events and workshops can be found on the museum's

    And a shall ask a responsible adult to show you how to "Google" "Judge Crater". No, wait, I'll violate my own rule and it for you!

    (with thanks to Wikipedia)
    Joseph Force Crater (January 5, 1889 – disappeared August 6, 1930, declared legally dead June 6, 1939) was a New York State Supreme Court Justice who vanished amid political scandal. He was last seen leaving a restaurant on West 45th Street in Manhattan, and entered popular culture as one of the most mysterious missing persons cases of the twentieth century. Despite massive publicity, the case was never solved and was officially closed 40 years after he disappeared. His disappearance fueled public disquiet about New York City corruption and was a factor in the downfall of the Tammany Hall political machine.

    OK, my bad that I had a Chicago PA announcer in the post but isn't Chicago where people go to die?
