On September 2, 1989, 41-year-old Ronald Sallee set out with some friends to spend Labor Day weekend camping in the Sierra National Forest. The men planned to hike through the Ansel Adams Wilderness on the Cassidy Trail to the San Joaquin River and fish. According to Ron's friends, during the hike, Ronald slipped and when he got back up he was acting strangely. Over the last mile of the hike to the river campsite, Ron became separated from the others. He never made it to the campsite. They shot rounds into the air in an attempt to let him know where they were but he never showed. Ronald Sallee was never seen or heard from again.

Several days later, he was reported missing and the search began. No trace of Ron or the belongings he had with him have ever been found. Ron has now been missing for almost 29 years. His daughter, Meghan, was just 6-years-old when he disappeared and she's still looking for answers.

On the evening of January 12, 2018, 15-year-old Michael Dillard disappeared from his home in Calvin, West Virginia.  He was helping his mom carry in bags of wood pellets from the car when he ran behind the house. His mom didn’t think much of it at first but when she finished carrying the rest of the bags and couldn’t find Michael, she became concerned.  She called family for help and then alerted the authorities. The weather quickly turned that evening as a storm rolled into the area, first bringing rain and then snow. That storm made searching for Michael very difficult that night. Many searches were conducted in the weeks and months that followed Michael’s disappearance but the only item that was ever found was a jacket.  Since Michael went missing during the harsh winter months, they were hopeful that the spring thaw would yield some clues but Michael’s disappearance is still just as a much of a mystery as it was that stormy January night.
