Do we have a general thread for missing persons? If not, we should.

In any case, I came across this and it seemed odd. Internet personality Hannah Minx was "net famous", made a lowbudget horror film, then disappeared from the face of the earth. DREAD CENTRAL is where I first found the story:
As we continue our quest for answers to the strange and bizarre riddles of the web, some of these mysteries hit a bit closer to home than we expected. One such case is the sudden “disappearance” of web-celeb Hannah Minx – a social media superstar obsessed with Japanese pop culture who made quite a name for herself among the cosplay community, with over 600,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel.
Under the name Hannah Wagner, the social media superstar was cast as the bubbly, blue-haired “Adventure Girl” Sadie in Dread Presents’ holiday horror-comedy Slay Belles… but shortly after production completed, Hannah seemed to drop off the internet completely. No warning, no explanation – the web persona known as Hannah Minx had simply ceased to exist.
I don't know if it's ballyhoo to hype the film or a legit mystery, but I figured I'd throw it out there!

Well, we have 'people who just disappear':

At the end of the video it says she seems to have reappeared on Twitter as Hannah Osterhagen, "wife, mother & punk music fan". Unless someone has stolen her photo..

A Native American lady who searches for missing people, well worth a read:

The amateur sleuth who searched for a body - and found one
A car wreck found at the bottom of a lake brought the search for a missing young mother to an end. But why was it a volunteer team behind the discovery, and not the police?
On a blazing hot day in late July, Lissa Yellowbird-Chase drove her black SUV, license plate "SEARCH", to a muddy landing on Lake Sakakawea. It was a remote entrance to the water on the northern edge of the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota - not much more than a rickety dock at the end of an uneven gravel road.
Hitched to the back of Yellowbird-Chase's truck was a 14-foot boat with a half-broken motor and a set of fishing sonar. By her own admission, she was not a particularly skilled or experienced boater, nor an expert in sonar. But she had a plan.

I don't know whether it's just me or the people I follow but I've been noticing an increasing trend on Facebook of people posting 'Missing' people (usually children or vulnerable adults) - which is admirable, but the posts have been from one or two years ago. People not checking the dates before reposting, I presume.

That's why Craig Shergold has received hundreds of millions of birthday cards for three decades. (I assume that's still happening?).
