Ryan Blagojevic

2019-04-2200:42:50

During Easter of 2013, 37-year-old Ryan Blagojevic disappeared from the central harbor area of Portland, Maine. He had struggled with alcohol as a teen but when he suffered a severe brain injury in an accident a few years prior to his disappearance, it led to a more serious dependence on alcohol. Ryan had lived in the area for around two years— on the streets and in and out of shelters, so specifics about his life at this time are vague. What is known however, is that on the evening of March 31, 2013, he was intoxicated, kicked out of a shelter and the police were called. After they spoke with him and he went on his way — Ryan was never seen again.If you have information about Ryan’s disappearance, please call Detective Chris Giesecke at the Portland Maine Police Dept. at (207) 874-8593.You can follow Ryan's case on Facebook at Missing Ryan Blagojevic.The episode was co-researched and written by Marissa Jones and Anna Priestland.This episode was sponsored by:Stamps.com- Go to Stamps.com and click on the radio microphone at the top of the homepage and type Vanished for a 4-week trial PLUS free postage and a digital scale with no longterm commitment.Daily Harvest- Go to daily-harvest.com and enter promo code VANISHED to get three free cups in your first box.You can find new episodes of The Vanished, completely ad-free, only on Stitcher Premium. For a free month of Stitcher Premium, go to stitcherpremium.com/wondery and use promo code WONDERY.

2019-04-1501:07:13

On December 26, 2016, 58-year-old Lori Feltz disappeared from Cynthiana, KY. When Lori was young, she was in a terrible car accident. This accident killed her younger brother, who was a passenger in the vehicle, and Lori suffered a traumatic brain injury. This accident would change the course of her life forever. Lori, as a result of this injury, had intellectual disabilities, short term memory loss, seizures and required a caregiver to help her with daily tasks and make sure she took her medication.Around 9 AM on December 26, 2016, Lori was last seen leaving her house on Hick Hardy Road to walk up a path to go help her sister at the home next door. The path was only about 300 yards and this was a route she would walk on a regular basis for exercise. However, she never made it to see her sister. Her sister, Tricia, was expecting Lori and became concerned when she didn’t arrive but she couldn’t find Lori anywhere. Lori’s family members believe that it is possible that she became disoriented on her walk and flagged down a passing motorist to ask for a ride, but so far there have been no signs or clues to indicate what truly happened to Lori that day.If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Lori Feltz please call the Kentucky State Police at 859-428-1212.You can follow Lori's case on Facebook at Finding Justice for Lori.This episode was co-researched and written by Marissa Jones and Erika Gwynn.

although the police spokesman says over and over again that they don't have tunnel vision it kinda sounds to me like they do. I sure hope this one is solved soon. I really want to know what happened.

A baby would NOT crawl out the house and cruise the yard. One : I would assume the door was closed therefore a baby would have to be able to reach the door knob. Impossible - BS story

I feel so sorry for her father. He sounds like a genuine, smart, caring man who just wanted to love his daughter. This isn't fair to him. The lack of support is pretty sad. I hope one day he gets his happy ending. Kayla, as well.

so what if she got dropped off at the restaurant because she got a call from the husband that he wanted to meet near there to "chat"? maybe she didnt want trouble between the men so she told the boyfriend a little white lie about who &where she was meeting. But when she met up with the husband.... he killed her. It's the most common scenario. where was the husband when she was supposedly at lunch?

Past violence is indicative of future violence. My best friends husband acted just like this man. She was leaving him, got an apartment, goes home after work to pack some more things and was never seen again. Two years later her remains were found in a wooded area a few miles from her home. It took another five years to bring the sob to trial. Got life and spent 14 yrs before cancer took him.

I remember this when it happened, I lived right around the corner from that apartment. my ex husband had his car searched the morning after the "disappearance", ever car was searched when leaving the area for like 24 hrs. I was so scared when it happened, because I had two small kids. Then the truth came out, I've been crying off and on through this whole podcast.

He lived with his husband AND a roommate. The roommate was helping to clean up the home. Days before Dennis disappeared, his husband fell and was taken to the hospital and later moved to a long term care facility where he is still at.
