MP of the week: Nickolas Pogoneys

I’m sorry this week’s featured missing person was featured late; I was being lazy and irresponsible. Anyway, this week it’s Nickolas Pogoneys, a 58-year-old man who disappeared from Apple Valley, California on December 1, 1993. They found his car with all his stuff inside, including his dentures, but the keys were missing.

    My comment is actually about the recent updates you’ve posted. I drive about 33,000 miles per year throughout my region (northern WV, eastern Ohio) and have logged a few hundred thousand miles, from interstates to back roads. As a Charley Irregular, I have studied the cases from this area. I often wonder if I’ve driven past any clandestine burials of missing persons featured on Charley (Annita Price is one; I have passed that stretch of telephone poles on Route 2 many times and wondered how they could even narrow down which poles to investigate).

    So when I read the update on Leslie Marty having been found, I immediately recognized that area in Belpre, Ohio. If the offender hadn’t finally told them where he buried her, she would never have been found. Local enforcement (fairly small towns and small forces) worked hard and brought in reinforcements to help pinpoint her actual grave. This certainly raises my curiousity even more about what missing persons might be hidden, even in areas that aren’t particularly remote. This area has so many wooded hills and valleys right off major roadways that could conceal a grave for decades. At least Leslie’s family can have a proper burial and I’m sure it means a lot to them.

    Hey Meghan! I know this is off-topic, but I was just wondering if you still keep in contact with Jennifer Marra?

      I do not. I haven’t heard from her in about ten years.

      OMG, I’m so sorry! *Meaghan

    It took offender a long time to tell authorities where he buried her. At least her family can give her a decent burial, and have some closure. I feel sorry for her son, that the guy who employed his mother killed her.

    I guess he was upset that she stopped dating him. I wonder if he did this to anyone else.

    The Doe Network states that that as of January 12, 2021, that he has been located. But honestly, that may be because he’s no longer on the CDOJ website. I don’t remember if he was ever on NamUs.

      Doe screwed up. He’s still missing.
