Earlier on the day of her disappearance she had lied to professors about a death in her family stating that she would be absent from class for a week.[503][504] A schoolbus driver who happened upon Murray's crash site stopped to ask if she needed help and Murray declined. Upon returning home a short time later, the bus driver called police anyway but by the time first responders arrived, 10 minutes later, Murray had vanished. Her keys along with bank and credit cards have never been located despite extensive searches of her abandoned car and the neighboring wooded areas.[505]

One of the victims detailed by Haley in the videos matched the case of Grinstead, but police investigation ultimately revealed the videos to be part of an elaborate hoax by Haley.[517] A latex glove found outside Grinstead's home revealed DNA but to date no match has been found.[518] In 2017, two arrests were made in the case on murder charges.[519]

It was later revealed that he was working for the CIA at that time as well.[542]

In 2010 a video of him, somewhat emaciated, was released in which he begs for help from the U.S. government to be released. The U.S. government has regularly raised the issue of his release with Iran as part of talks between the countries, but Iran's statements as to whether he still is in their custody or even alive have been contradictory and it has been speculated that Levinson is no longer under their control if he is still alive.[542]

At the station he purchased a one-way ticket to London despite being told that for an extra £1 he could have a return ticket. He was last seen on CCTV leaving the main concourse at King's Cross.[548][549]

2008 Marilyn Bergeron 24 Bergeron left her parents' home in the Loretteville neighborhood of Quebec City, Quebec, Canada around 11 a.m. on 17 February 2008 ostensibly to go for a walk leaving all her identification at home besides a credit card. She attempted to withdraw money from a nearby ATM where security camera footage released later showed her looking nervously over her shoulder. Five hours later she used her credit card to buy a cup of coffee in Saint-Romuald 20 kilometres (12 mi) from her parents' house. She had just settled in there the day before after abruptly moving out of her Montreal apartment where she told her parents (who had noticed that she had grown depressed and fearful over the last two months) that she no longer felt safe but would not explain why.[552] Reports in 2010 that she was living in Hawkesbury, Ontario could not be verified.[553][554] In 2017 a friend of hers who knew her in Montreal during that time said that when he pressed her specifically on whether she had been raped or witnessed a murder she said that what had happened to her was even worse but likewise refused to elaborate.[555]
2008 Jamie Fraley 22 Fraley, of Gastonia, North Carolina, told a friend over the phone at 1:30 a.m. 8 April 2008 that a male friend, that she did not identify, was taking her to the hospital for the third time in 24 hours to seek treatment for a stomach flu. She never got to the hospital and was never seen or heard from again. Two days later her discarded cell phone was found at a nearby intersection but it did not yield any useful evidence.[556] Two months later her fiancé's father, who lived nearby and had given her one of her rides to the hospital that day, was revealed to have been a person of interest in her disappearance. This followed his death from heatstroke after he locked himself in the trunk of an ex-girlfriend's car in what police believe was an attempt to ambush her.[557] In 2015 a prison inmate serving time for murder wrote a letter to a local newspaper confessing to her murder; authorities do not believe it is truthful.[558]
2008 Brandon Swanson 19 After a late night celebrating the end of the semester with his college classmates, Swanson drove his car into a ditch on a side road amid cornfields near his home in Marshall, Minnesota shortly after midnight on 14 May 2008. He called his parents for a ride; they searched for him near Lynd, 6 miles (9.7 km) southwest of Marshall, where he believed himself to be. While on the phone with his father, he suddenly said "Oh, shit!" and the connection was lost, never to be regained.[559]

Police obtained cell phone records the next day and found that he had made his call from somewhere between Taunton and Porter, northwest of Marshall, around 25 miles (40 km) from Lynd, allowing them to find Swanson's car. Dogs picked up a trail from there and followed it 3 miles (4.8 km) to the west, at one point crossing the Yellow Medicine River. It has been suggested he drowned in the river or died of hypothermia after getting out, but no trace of him has been found despite searches of 122 square miles (320 km2) in the area.[560]

2008 Amy Fitzpatrick 15 Fitzpatrick was last seen at Mijas Costa in Málaga, Spain, where she was on holiday from her native Ireland. She had been babysitting with a friend on 31 December 2008 and left at about 10:10pm that night. Amy never arrived home which was only a short distance away and has not been seen or heard from since. Investigators are working on her case and there is some evidence suggesting a possible kidnapping.[563]
2009 Jure Šterk 72 Šterk regularly communicated with radio amateurs while sailing around the world; but all communications ceased around 1 January 2009 as reported by an Australian ham radio operator.[564] His sailboat Lunatic was spotted on 26 January 2009 by a merchant vessel, the Aida, and it appeared abandoned. On 30 April Lunatic was found adrift with no one aboard by the crew of the science vessel RV Roger Revelle.[565]
2009 Claudia Lawrence 35 Lawrence was last seen on 18 March 2009, near Heworth in York, England while returning from her job as a chef.[566] Whilst some evidence suggested that she had fled to Cyprus police have increasingly come to believe she is dead.[567]

Date Person(s) Age Circumstances
2010 Russell Bohling 18 Russell Bohling disappeared from the Bempton area of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England on 2 March 2010. His car was found in the car park for Bempton Cliffs RSPB site which has seen some suicides. The police have assumed his case is a suicide or tragic accident though no body has been found. His family maintain that a third party was involved as he did not have enough fuel to drive to Bempton from his family home in West Ella, a USB stick detailing the pornographic artwork and graffiti left on the walls of the former bunker of RAF Bempton was missing and the trainers he supposedly wore that day were found in the family's holiday home even further up the coast after he had disappeared.[570]
2010 Paolo Renda 76 Paolo Renda, a member of the Rizzuto crime family in Montreal, told his family he would be picking up steaks for dinner on his way back from a 20 May 2010 funeral but he never arrived.

The family believes he was killed in retaliation for his role in a 1970s murder; however, their 2013 attempt to have him declared legally dead was denied on the grounds of insufficient evidence.[571]

His failure to return was not noted for another two days and extensive searches found only two decompression tanks that were placed incorrectly and filled with the wrong gases but no evidence of a body has been found in the spring. While it is still possible his body is in an unexplored area of the cave other theories include foul play that is possibly related to the suspicious 2011 death of Vortex Spring's owner or a possible staged disappearance in the wake of McDaniel's recent marital and financial failures.[575][576]

Her husband and a boyfriend both claim to have seen her that day as well. Three weeks later, after Facebook messages from her to friends that seemed to them to have been written by someone else, she was reported missing. Investigators found no evidence of activity on her part other than the suspicious Facebook messages since the day she was last seen.

She was on the way to the hospital where she claimed to have been taking him after he woke up sick and when she returned he was gone. Upon inspection police found that the car had plenty of fuel left and was working properly. The police publicly expressed doubts about her story as she and the boy's father were getting divorced and she had just withdrawn from a mediated custody agreement that gave him visitation. The case was also noted to be similar to a recently aired episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and investigators have even questioned whether Sky was in the car that morning at all.[585] While police have indicated they could charge the mother with child endangerment, they have declined to do so due to those doubts.[586]
