Flashback Friday: John Butler

July 18, 2014

This week’s Flashback Friday is John Arthur Butler, a tall, skinny fifteen-year-old boy who disappeared from Newport Beach, California on August 21, 1961 — nearly 53 years ago. If still alive, he’d be almost 68 today. He’s not the only John Butler on Charley; there’s also a John Clifton Butler, much older, also missing from California.

Young John’s case was added to the NCMEC a few years ago and he has an AP now as well as two pictures. I don’t have much on him, but his fate is pretty obvious: last seen surfing. Surfboard found but no sign of surfer. I suppose it’s possible he met with some other fate, but the circumstances strongly indicate he drowned.

Make-A-List Monday: MPs who disappeared before they were to testify in court

June 30, 2014

This list was created by regular Charley Project blog commenter Mion. Mion notes, “Of those who disappeared, 54% were male and 46% were female. 75% (21) were white, 17% (5) were black, 4% (1) were Hispanic and 4% (1) were of two or more races. Most of the defendants they were to testify against were charged with drug offenses, or were being sued for financial reasons.”

Make-A-List Monday: People Who Disappeared on Walpurgis Night

June 16, 2014

This list was suggested and created by one Eric Cass: people who disappeared on Walpurgis Night, which is to say April 30/May 1. I don’t know much about it, but it seems to be a pagan holiday and the Wikipedia entry says it’s celebrated in one form or another for hundreds of years in the Czech Republic, Germany, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Sweden. St. Walpurgia was canonized in the 800s.

Make-A-List Monday: People Who Changed Their Names

June 9, 2014

This is a list of adult MPs who legally changed their names before they vanished. Women who changed their names because they got married or divorced don’t count. I decided children didn’t count either.

Peter Strother Madison (was Peter Scott Gruesbeck)
Neo Babson Maximus (was Charles M. Allen Jr.)
Frank Nash (was Asselin Nash)
Mikalena Nau (was Michelle Nau)
Jessie Shawn Mixon (was Robert Shawn Otis)

This is a really short list but I thought it a worthy topic anyway.

Fun fact: Michael legally changed his name after he turned 18. He has two middle names, and started life as Michael Robert David. Then he changed it to Michael David Robert — simply because he could, for no other reason.

Make-A-List Monday: Car Accidents

June 2, 2014

This list is for people who vanished after getting into a car or other motor vehicle (like an ATV or motorcycle) accident. This has to be shortly after the wreck, not days later or anything like that. Accidents on water (boats, rafts, etc.) do not count, but accidents where the person wound up in a body of water count, and so do accidents where a person merely got their car stuck in a ditch or a muddy place or something. The MPs can be drivers, passengers or pedestrians.

Disappeared: Lee Cutler, missing 7 years.

May 27, 2014

Originally posted on www.seanmunger.com:

The disappearance of Lee Sterling Cutler, age 18, from Buffalo Grove, Illinois is one of the more famous missing persons cases of the past decade, having been profiled on an episode of the Disappeared show on Investigative Discovery. I find it interesting not simply because of the mysterious circumstances of his case, but because Lee himself seems to have been a very interesting person; he is the first missing person I’ve profiled on my site that is also filed under the category Interesting People.

First, the case itself. Lee, age 18, was a senior at Adlai Stevenson High School in  Buffalo Grove, Illinois. He was quite contemplative and religious, very active in a local Jewish synagogue and a Jewish youth organization of which he was one of the leaders. The Disappeared show highlighted his introspective nature, journal-writing and his relatively intense, but friendly, personality. On October 20, 2007, he left…

Select It Sunday: German Machuca

May 11, 2014

Selected by my friend Sean Munger, German Machuca‘s disappearance is, as Sean puts it, “one of the most baffling cases I’ve ever seen on the site. In the top 5.” Given that Mr. Machuca’s circumstances of disappearance section on Charley is only four sentences long, that’s a pretty impressive claim. But Sean may be right.

German Machuca, a smallish Hispanic teenager, only 5’7 tall and of average build, vanished without a trace from Laredo, Texas on March 31, 1990. He was washing his car, and then he was gone. Just like that. Leaving the soap bucket, leaving the water running, for crying out loud.

And that’s all, folks, all I can find on him. No articles, nothing. I haven’t updated his case even once since I started Charley in 2004.

Who walks away while in the middle of washing their car? If something or somebody had distracted him — perhaps someone calling his name — why didn’t he at least turn the hose/faucet off before he went to investigate? Other questions arise: was German wearing rubber gloves or other waterproof gear like galoshes or a rain poncho when he was washing his car? If so, did they find those things? Was the soap bucket found sitting upright, or was it tipped over, spilled, as if in a struggle? Did anyone see anything? Hear anything?

I only know that German Machuca, eighteen and a half years old, chose some very unusual circumstances in which to go missing. It’s almost enough to make a person believe in alien abductions. (I think I did have aliens abduct my Sim in the Sims 3 game while he was working on restoring his classic car one night. But that is neither here nor there.)

German must have family and friends out there still waiting, still wondering. I’d love it if one of them contact me, either by email or in the comments section, to shed some light on the strange circumstances of his disappearance.
