Baltimore police seek tips in sudden disappearance of eighth grade …

Baltimore Police are seeking the public’s help in locating a missing Baltimore teacher who suddenly disappeared and stopped using social media and his credit cards late last month, they said Friday.

Gregory D. Ferrell, 56, an eighth grade teacher at Monarch Academy Baltimore in the Coldstream Homestead Montebello neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore, was last seen on Dec. 29.

T.J. Smith, a police spokesman, said police “have not found any overt signs of foul play,” but consider Ferrell a “critical missing person” given the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, which is “uncharacteristic” of Ferrell.

“When we get into a scenario where somebody’s life stops basically of everything normal, whether it’s using credit cards, social media, going to work, things like that, contacting friends and family, that’s of major concern as well,” Smith said.

A Belfast couple who spent £1,000 in a bid to find their missing cat have been left overjoyed following his “miraculous” return after seven weeks.

Michael McGrath (47) and his fiancee Marta Larkin (36) were shocked when Spencer reappeared almost two months after going missing from their home in west Belfast.

“He’s a little skinny but in good health and he’s been given the all-clear from the vet, although she would like him to put on a kilogram in weight,” Michael said.

The animal lovers had become disillusioned with their “very expensive”

20 years later, baby’s disappearance still a mystery

TAMPA — The latest tip came through Facebook. A young woman wrote to Marlene Aisenberg that she could find no records or photos to document the first five months of her own life.

She knew about the Aisenbergs’ daughter, who vanished from a Valrico home 20 years ago.

Could the woman be baby Sabrina? She wondered.

In photographs, Steve and Marlene Aisenberg couldn’t discount a resemblance to their other two children, now in their 20s. It was enough for the woman to arrange for her DNA to be tested in a private lab, Steve Aisenberg said recently.

“Until we have more information, we’re cautiously optimistic,” he said.

But as they await word, Aisenberg said the couple tempers their hopes.

It is, after all, one more tip in a long list of leads. There are people who call and say they know someone who resembles Sabrina.

Agents search woods for evidence in boys’ 1975 disappearance from New Lisbon center

NEWARK — FBI agents have searched a wildlife refuge along the Jersey shore as they investigate the decades-old disappearance of two boys who were roommates at a state facility for children with developmental disabilities in Woodland.

The search of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge comes as investigators refocus their efforts on the 1975 disappearance of 12-year-old David Williams, of Newark, and 17-year-old Steven Anderson, of Westville.

The boys apparently wandered into the woods surrounding what today is the New Lisbon Developmental Center off Route 72 and were never seen again.

Last month, FBI officials said they had promising new information in the case but declined to elaborate.

Officials have not said if anything was found during the search.

The FBI announced in October that the boys who went missing after playing baseball with staff members at a field near their residence in 1975

Search Renewed For Four-Decade-Old Disappearance of Two Boys in New Jersey Pinelands

More than 42 years ago, two boys disappeared from a state facility in the Pinelands of southern New Jersey.

They were never seen again.

Now, the FBI has joined up with state investigators and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to look for new clues in the mystery that remains unsolved.

On April 7, 1975, Steven Anderson, 17, and David Williams, 12, disappeared from a sprawling residential facility now known as the New Lisbon Developmental Center in Woodland Township, Burlington County.

“Many search efforts were done, but they were unable to find anyone,” Detective Paul Vanaman of the state Department of Human Services police told NBC10.

New resources and expertise prompted authorities to re-trace the steps of the original investigators as well as run additional tests in the hopes of uncovering new information.

But FBI Special Agent John Mesisca

Twenty years later, baby Sabrina Aisenberg’s disappearance still a mystery

TAMPA — The latest tip came through Facebook. A young woman wrote to Marlene Aisenberg that she could find no records or photos to document the first five months of her own life.

Sources: Police Search Wooded Area in Connection to Mother’s 2007 Disappearance

The NBC Boston Investigators have confirmed that a search in a wooded area in Boston’s West Roxbury neighborhood is connected to the disappearance of a local mother a decade ago.

Authorities are searching the woods off Enneking Parkway Thursday. The Investigators have confirmed that they are investigating the disappearance of 32-year-old Felicia McGuyer, who has been missing since Oct. 7, 2007.

McGuyer was last seen in the area of Roxton Street in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood. According to Boston Police in a 2013 press release requesting help in the investigation, it was not common behavior for McGuyer to be out of touch with her son, who was 10 at the time of the disappearance, or other family members or friends.

FBI agents and Massachusetts State Police are assisting Boston police with the search.

Lenox Square disappearance haunts Atlanta to this day

When Mary Shotwell Little failed to show up for work at CS Bank at Lenox Square mall in Buckhead Oct. 15, 1965, her boss called security.

The previous evening, she met a coworker there for dinner because her husband was out of town on business. It was the last place she was seen.

A search of the lot turned up nothing. Back then, Lenox was an open-air mall anchored by a grocery store. It would have been easy to spot a new pearl grey Mercury Comet.

Then someone returned her car to the mall, to exactly where it was supposed to be, to where earlier in the morning it apparently had not been.

Its condition would lead to a stunning puzzle that remains one of the great unsolved mysteries in Atlanta’s history, one that may be closer to being solved now than at any point over the last five decades.

Little was from Charlotte, North
