Charles Allen Jr. (Neo Babson Maximus)

22-year-old Charles Allen Jr, who changed his name to Neo Babson Maximus sometime in August 2007, was last seen in Dartmouth, Massachusetts on the 12th of October 2007.

At the time of his disappearance, Neo was in his senior year at UMass Dartmouth with a major in psychology, and he lived in an off-campus apartment in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Neo is described by family and friends as an intelligent man who enjoys playing online games. Neo was obsessed with tennis and believed that one day he would be a professional tennis player.

The reason Neo decided to change his name is that “Neo” is the name of the main character in “The Matrix” films, and also his name in “Half-Life”, a first-person shooter video game that he enjoyed playing. “Maximus” was the name of the main character in the film “Gladiator”, and “Babson” was his mother’s maiden name.

Neo struggled with bipolar disorder, which sometimes caused him to have manic episodes. It has been reported that he was not taking his medication and was confused and paranoid at the time of his disappearance.

On the 11th of October 2007, Neo missed a planned lunch date with his father, but the pair spoke on the phone instead. Later that evening, Neo’s sister called him and asked why his Facebook profile had been removed. Neo denied removing his profile and instead told his sister that people were after him.

On the 13th of October 2003, at around 3:00am, Neo tried to break into a house in the area of College Lane, Dartmouth. When Neo was confronted by the homeowner, Neo said that he was looking for one of his college friends who he thought lived there. Neo then apologised, jumped out of the second-floor window, and then ran away into the woods.

Neo has not been seen or heard from since.

Neo’s car, a blue 1999 Ford Expedition with a Maryland license plate, was found abandoned on the university’s campus a few days after his disappearance.

On the 14th of October, Neo’s backpack which contained his school supplies was located in Slocum Road yard, next to UMass Dartmouth. Three days later, his shoes were discovered in a wooded area near Chase Road.

Neo’s keys, credit cards and mobile phone were with him when he went missing. There has been no activity on his bank or on his phone since he disappeared.

Neo’s family and police have searched homeless shelters and hostels for him, but they have never found anything. A sighting of someone who matched Neo’s description near the Dartmouth Mall and Wal-Mart also gave no results.

Before he went missing, Neo left his parents a couple of voicemails saying that he was going South to either Florida or Texas, but authorities never found any evidence to suggest that he travelled to either state.

Police have not found any evidence, motive, or means to suggest that Neo was met with foul play. Instead, they believe that he walked off on his own accord, but do think that his bipolar disorder may have contributed to his disappearance.

Neo is still classed as a missing person, and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance are still unclear to his family and the police.

If you have any information about Neo’s disappearance, or if you recognise him, please contact the Dartmouth Police Department at (508) 997-9900.

Karen Ann Spencer

In the early hours of the 30th of December, 1989, Karen was driving with her sister-in-law Christy. Karen was extremely angry at Christy, so angry that Karen decided to pull the car over on the I-275 in Clermont County, Ohio, and get out of the car.

Karen, who was 17 years old, had been staying with her brother, Curtiss, and his wife Christy in their apartment in Milford, Ohio. Despite only being 17, Karen already had developed a bad relationship with alcohol and was going through a rebellious stage. Richard, Karen’s father, was so concerned with her relationship with alcohol that he enrolled her in an alcohol treatment programme, but Karen refused to go.

She told her dad that she didn’t want to live at home anymore, and as a compromise he eventually let her live with Curtiss and Christy in Milford. Richard remained living at Karen’s family home in Reading, Ohio.

Curtiss and Christy had made plans to move to Florida the next month, and Karen was going to make the move with them.

Earlier that night, on the 30th of December 1989, Karen had been helping Christy pack some boxes when Christy broke the news to Karen that she had been having some relationship problems with Curtiss and was planning on ending the relationship, and wouldn’t be moving to Florida.

Karen did not take the news well, and she started to argue with Christy. It is thought that Karen was mostly upset that the breakdown of her brother’s marriage would mean that she would no longer be able to move to Florida.

It was during this argument and teenage-rage-filled mind that Karen made the decision to get out of Christy’s car and walk away.

Christy tried to convince Karen to get back in the car, but she just kept walking. Christy then got into the driver’s seat of her car and just waited for a few minutes, deciding what to do next. During this time Christy was approached by a man in a red sports car, asking if she needed any help, but she waved him off.

When Karen still did not return to the car, Christy decided to drive slowly down the highway looking for her. Christy drove around 3 miles to the nearest interchange, before turning around and heading back down the I-275. There was still no sign of Karen, so Christy decided to return to Richard’s house.

Richard and his wife, Diane, had been looking after Christy’s infant son. Richard did say that when Christy arrived at around 3:30am to pick him up, she was crying hysterically and wouldn’t explain what was wrong. When he asked where Karen was, she seemed to panic and did not know what to say, but she eventually told him that Karen was back at her apartment before leaving with her son.

As soon as Karen’s family had been told the truth about what had happened, they immediately contacted the Miami Township Police Department and reported her as missing. Detectives initially believed that they were dealing with a runaway, but after realising that Karen only had $7 on her, and all her personal belongings were still at Christy’s home, they quickly realised that she had not run away.

Karen also had two uncashed cheques from her job as a waitress, and she had no prior history of running away from home.

After Karen’s disappearance started being shown on TV, the man in the red car who approached Christy that night came forward and said that he might have seen Karen. However, the version of events that he told the police was very different to what Christy had said.

The man, who has not been named, said that he saw a car that he believed had broken down and that he saw a woman walking away from the car. He then claimed Christy got out of her car and walked to his car, and told him that she had been in an argument with her sister-in-law and asked him if he would give her a ride home. The man then went to look for Karen, but after driving around for 10 minutes, he gave up and continued on his way.

Due to the conflicting versions of events, detectives made both Christy and the man in the red car take polygraph tests. Both Christy and the man passed the polygraph tests about the night Karen went missing.

Police will not reveal the name of the man, but they have said that he was living in Harrison County, Ohio, at the time of Karen’s disappearance.

One woman contacted police saying that she was outside with her dog at around the time Karen went missing and that she heard a woman screaming. This woman lived close to the Loveland-Indian Hill exit off I-275, which is close to where Karen was last seen. The woman wasn’t sure if this scream was related to Karen’s disappearance or not.

Karen’s family were holding out hope that she was still alive, and conducted several searches around both sides of the I-275, and even walked from Milford to the I-71 interchange several times. Sadly, their intense search efforts found no evidence of what happened to Karen that night.

The police made several public appeals for information, but no one came forward with information. The police were open to any possibilities, but privately they thought that Karen was most likely dead even though they had no evidence to support foul play had taken place.

Karen’s family eventually stopped talking to Christy due to tensions becoming so high. Christy was also the last person to see Karen alive, and although there hadn’t been any evidence to suggest that Christy was involved in Karen’s disappearance, there were too many unknowns and Karen’s family were unsure of what to believe.

In 1993, Richard and Diane moved from Reading, Ohio to West Chester, Pennsylvania. Even though it had been 4 years since Karen went missing, they set up a call-forwarding from their old phone number to their new one, just in case Karen decided to call them. Richard and Diane desperately wanted to believe that Karen was still alive, and had just started a new life for herself.

In 1993, a truck driver told police that he saw a man in a pickup truck near Lake Isabella in the late December of 1989 digging a grave and burying a woman’s body that was wrapped in a blanket. He said that after he saw Karen’s missing poster, he recognised her as the woman who was being buried. The truck driver took the police to where he saw the man dig the grave but after an extensive search of that area, they found no evidence to suggest that anyone had ever been buried in that location.

The police did keep the truck driver on their radar for several years as possibly being involved in Karen’s disappearance, but they found nothing that linked him to Karen’s case.

In 2000, Richard and Diane received a call from a man who told them that their daughter was buried in Renfro Valley, Kentucky. However, it was later revealed that this caller was 54-year-old Larry Mullins who lived in Hamilton County with his grandmother. It turned out that Larry liked to amuse himself by writing journal entries about car accidents, missing people etc and then years later call the families and taunt them. He had over 230 journals.

Larry was charged with several misdemeanours. In Karen’s case, he was given a fine of $500 and sentenced to 45 days in jail.

However, the new publicity of Karen’s case evoked a call from Kate Harner. Kate had actually called the police in 1990 with her tip, but the police never returned her call. So Kate called them again and told them the same tip she had told them in 1990.

Kate said that sometime in the late December of 1989, she had offered a ride to a young woman who was walking along the I-275 highway. Whilst Kate was talking with the woman, a red pickup truck with Kentucky license plates pulled up next to her. There was a man who was driving the truck, and when he rolled down the window the woman smiled at him as if she knew him. The woman then waved off Kate, and Kate assumed that she was going to get a ride with the man in the pickup truck. It was when Kate saw the missing posters of Karen that she realised the woman she had seen that night was actually Karen.

Karen’s case went quiet for a few years until in 2009 when the police announced that they had a suspect in the case and that they hoped an arrest in the case would be imminent. The suspect has not been named publicly, but he is the man who was driving the red car on the night that Karen went missing.

Police ruled him out at the time as he had passed the polygraph exam, but over the years the man started to change his story, whilst Christy’s version of events stayed exactly the same. This made detectives suspicious, so they asked the FBI to go over his polygraph test results. The FBI’s behavioural scientists determined that the man had actually been manipulating the test, and had actually failed.

At the time of Karen’s disappearance, the man was in his twenties and he was driving a red Datsun B310 on the night of Karen’s disappearance. He admitted that he approached Christy’s car because he thought it had broken down, but Christy never approached him, so the only way he would have known about the fight they had was if Karen had told him. The man also admitted that he did see Karen that night, something that he denied during his polygraph test, but that she had refused his offer of a ride.

This makes him the last person to see Karen alive.

Richard, Karen’s father, has said that the man had his car cleaned twice on the day that Karen went missing and then his car disappeared. The title was never transferred so it was never sold, but the insurance was cancelled and the car was never seen again.

The suspect also knew things about the case that were never made public, and according to one of his friends, he referred to “the girl missing from I-275” before Karen had even been reported missing.

The Clermont County prosecutor has said that it is likely they would get a conviction based on circumstance evidence, but they still asked Karen’s family if they would be willing to accept a lower sentence in return for the location of Karen’s body. Karen’s family accepted this, as they just want to bring her home, but no charges have been filed.

The FBI is also convinced that the man is the murderer after hearing his interview tapes, but they believe that if the police were able to have a little more convincing evidence against him, they would be able to arrest him.

The police are urging anyone with information about Karen’s disappearance to come forward, as even the tiniest bit of evidence could be the one thing needed to arrest the suspect.

Heather Hodges

Heather Hodges was reported missing on the 11th of April 2012, just two days after she was last seen by family members. She was reported missing by her boyfriend at the time, Paul Reivens “Scooter” Jordan II.

Paul claimed that at around 10:30pm on the night of the 9th of April, he left the home that the couple shared together in Rocky Mount, Virginia, to go to a nearby Dairy Queen to get Heather a Blizzard. When he returned around 10 minutes later, he said that Heather had disappeared.

Heather’s family have said that as she had a two-year-old daughter at the time, who she loved and cherished, Heather would not have disappeared of her own accord. Her family have also said that her relationship with Paul was “controlling and abusive”, and had been that way for many years. This is not only concerned with her family but also with the investigators who were investigating her case.

Whilst Heather did have a history of disappearing for a couple of days at a time, she would always check in on her child and her family. Heather has not been seen or heard from since her disappearance, and her whereabouts still remain unknown 10 years after she went missing.

When the authorities first started looking into her disappearance, they recognised that there were no signs that Heather had any plans to leave or disappear. None of her personal belongings was missing, and there were no signs that she left with a friend or on her own.

Heather’s family strongly believes that Paul murdered Heather that night and disposed of her body somewhere. The police also believed for years that foul play was involved, and they said that they did have a suspect in the case, but they never formally identified the suspect.

However, in April of this year (2022), Paul was indicted on murder charges related to Heather’s disappearance by a grand jury. Paul was charged with second-degree murder and concealing a dead body.

Investigators have said that Paul was arrested in an unrelated incident in July 2017, and then plead guilty to abduction by force or intimidation in June 2018 where he was sentenced to 10 years in jail. It was during this time that investigators were able to gather additional information that linked Paul to Heather’s death and disappearance.

Heather’s family were pleased with the news of Paul’s indictment.

There’s never been any doubt in my mind that it was him.” Crystal Songer, Heather’s sister, told Roanoke television station WDBJ.

Despite the news that Paul has been indicted for her murder, Heather’s body has never been found.

Colleen Elizabeth Perris

On the 30th of September 2000, at around 3:00pm, 18-year-old Colleen Elizabeth Perris received a phone call on her mobile phone. After the call, she left her parent’s house, which was near Flamingo Boulevard and Sunrise Boulevard in Plantation, Florida.

Colleen told her parents that she was going to go to Coral Springs, Florida, for a while but planned to return between 5:30pm and 6:00pm as she had planned to attend a Florida Marlins baseball game with her family that evening.

Since leaving her parent’s house, Colleen has not been seen or heard from again.

Colleen’s car, a two-door white 1994 Mazda MX-6, was discovered in a Tamarac, Florida, shopping centre just a few days later on the 6th of October. Colleen’s car has the Florida licence plate D48-PIE, a sunroof, tinted windows, and dents behind the driver’s side door and rear wheel well.

Colleen’s car was found abandoned, with the doors locked and windows rolled up. Her mobile phone and purse were not inside the car. There was no indication of foul play at the scene where the car was found, but it had rained in the days before the car was located so any evidence or fingerprints located on the exterior of the car would have been washed away.

Colleen’s family were not sure as to why her car would have been parked at the shopping centre, and have said that it was extremely out of character for her just to leave without any warning. She had no history of running away.

All of Colleen’s personal items were left at her parent’s home, aside from her mobile phone and purse which have never been located. Colleen’s father still pays for the phone and leaves a message every time he calls the number.

At the time of her disappearance, Colleen was working part-time as a waitress at a restaurant. She had saved up $1,000 in her bank. Colleen had also brought plane tickets for a holiday to Colorado in the December of 2000, but those plane tickets have never been used. She also planned to take a cruise at a later date.

Colleen’s family have described her as being shy, yet a free-spirited and strong-willed woman who loved singing, playing the piano, playing darts, going bowling and playing billiards. She didn’t really like to drive, she got her nails done very frequently and preferred dating men who were older than her.

Colleen dropped out of Plantation High School, despite having been an excellent student. She later re-enrolled at the school and took summer classes, and was supposed to receive her diploma just a short time after she went missing.

Colleen’s friends told authorities that she used LSD and Ecstasy, and said that it was Colleen’s uncle who was supplying them to her. Colleen’s friends also said that he was trying to get Colleen a role in a pornographic film. Colleen’s uncle has denied supplying her drugs or having anything to do with a pornographic film, and there is no evidence to support these claims.

It was also said that Colleen was planning on visiting her uncle the day she went missing, but her uncle said that he hadn’t arranged for her to come over.

Authorities have been trying to trace the call that Colleen received at 3pm on the day she went missing, but have had no luck. It is unknown if the call is related to Colleen’s disappearance.

Over the years, investigators have received several unconfirmed sightings of Colleen in the states of California and Alabama, and even in the Bahamas. But Colleen’s disappearance is still unsolved.

Authorities do not believe that Colleen left on her own accord, but they are unsure of the exact circumstances that led to Colleen going missing. Colleen was declared legally dead in November 2007.

If Colleen is still alive today, she would be 40 years old. She is described as having blonde hair with red highlights, hazel eyes and a large tattoo of a multicoloured butterfly on her back. She also has Chinese characters tattooed on her right ankle and an unspecified tattoo on her left ankle. Colleen had her ears, tongue and belly button pierced. Colleen was known to dye her hair, and her hair is naturally curly but she often straightens it.

At the time of her disappearance, Colleen was 5″2′ and weighed 95 pounds. It is unknown exactly what she was wearing, but she would normally be wearing jeans, a t-shirt and platform shoes. She was wearing blue earrings.

If you have any information on Colleen’s whereabouts or any information about her disappearance, please contact the Plantation Police Department at 954-797-2118.

Kateri Marie Mishow

Kateri Marie Mishow was a 22-year-old young woman who went missing on the 26th of October 2006, but her disappearance was not reported until the 6th of January 2007. Before she disappeared, her last known address was the 2200 block of 11th Avenue South in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Unfortunately, very few details are available in Kateri’s case.

Hang Lee

On the 12th of January, 1993, 17-year-old Hang Lee went to visit Mark Wallace for a job interview in St.Paul, Minnesota. Hang Lee told her brother before leaving to search for her if she didn’t return home.

Hang Lee’s friend, Nikki Lee (who is no relation to Hang) was the last person to see Hang Lee. Nikki recanted her story about Hang’s disappearance several times, and ultimately became uncooperative with the police and hired an attorney.

Mark Wallace is the prime suspect in Hang Lee’s disappearance. He has a history of sex crimes, and one of his victims was lured to him after he offered her a job interview. Mark Wallace ultimately ended up being uncooperative with authorities and hired an attorney.

Authorities do not have any concrete evidence to link Mark to Hang’s disappearance, but it is strongly believed that he was involved in her disappearance. Foul play is highly suspected.

At the time of her disappearance, Hang Lee was wearing black jeans, a black t-shirt with “skid row” written on the back of it and a black leather jacket. She was 5″0′, weighed 90lbs, and had brown eyes with black hair (her bangs were dyed red). Hang could speak both English and Hmong.

Hang Lee has been missing for 29 years. Do you know where she is?

Dulce Maria Alavez

Five-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez was last seen on the 16th of September, 2019, at the Bridgeton City Park Recreational Area, New Jersey, playing with her three-year-old brother on the swings. Just 30 yards away, their mother (Noema Alavez Perez) sat in her car, helping a family member with some homework.

A short while later, Noema’s son returned to her car crying because he couldn’t find his sister. Noema became panicked that her daughter had been abducted, and called 911. The next day, an Amber Alert was issued for Dulce Maria Alavez.

Over 100 police officers searched the park and surrounding areas thoroughly, but they found no sign or trace of her.

Dulce Maria Alavez has not been seen or heard from since the 16th of September 2019.

A month after Dulce had gone missing, a witness contacted the police with a description of a man they saw at the park on the day that Dulce went missing. The police did ask Dulce’s family if they had noticed anyone at the park that day who seemed out of place or who was acting unusual, but they hadn’t noticed anyone.

The man the witness described is said to be a Hispanic male with light skin, and between 5’6″ and 5’8″ tall. He was wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans and a white baseball cap. He is thought to be between 30 and 35 years old, and the witness said that he was driving a red van. The man also reportedly had two young children with him, potentially to blend in with the crowd at the playpark more.

Although the sketch of the man was publicised and shown across the country, the police and FBI did not receive any new tips about the man or Dulce’s whereabouts.

In 2020, a false claim was sent to the Bridgeton Police Department that claimed Dulce had been found but was dead. This false claim spread all over social media and momentarily derailed the investigation.

As of 2022, Dulce Maria Alavez is still missing. In 2021, the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children posted two age-progressed photos of Dulce.

At the time of her disappearance, Dulce was 5 years old. She was around 3ft tall and weighed between 60 and 70lbs. She had brown eyes and black hair. On the day she went missing, she was wearing a yellow t-shirt with a koala on the front, white checkered pants that had flowers and butterflies on them and white sandals.

Angela Darcel Cephas

Angela Darcel Cephas was a 20-year-old woman living with her family on Dragston Road, close to North Avenue in Port Norris, New Jersey, in May 1984.

On the 4th of May 1984, Angela left her family home on her pink and white 20-inch Huffy girls’ model bicycle with a white banana seat, the images of flowers on the frame, and the initials “KC” on the neck near the handlebars. She told her sister that she would visit her ex-boyfriend, who was an older man who lived close by.

Angela has not been seen or heard from since.

At the time of her disappearance, Angela was seven months pregnant with her first child. Angela’s sisters have stated that her former boyfriend was the father of her unborn child, but that he did not want to take responsibility for the child. Angela’s sisters also believe that he is responsible for her disappearance.

The man refused to co-operate with the police when they were first investigating Angela’s disappearance, but when he was interviewed by the Atlantic City Press in 1998 he said that he had never dated her, nor was he the father of her baby and that he only knew her as a neighbour.

Before she disappeared, Angela had said that she was thinking about running away from home. But her family don’t think that she would have left without telling them where she was going. Angela had not lived anywhere else aside from the neighbourhood her entire life.

Foul play is highly suspected in Angela’s disappearance.

Angela did not take her purse, cigarettes or watch with her when she vanished, and the bicycle she was riding that day has never been recovered.

Angela is described as being an African-American female with black hair and brown eyes. She stood at around 4″3′ and weighed around 135lbs. She was wearing a brown sweater, a white t-shirt, grey maternity pants and blue sneakers. She was seven months pregnant, and her child was due to be born in early August 1984.

If she is still alive today, Angela would be around 58 years old. Her child would be around 38 years old.

Christopher Carlton Tompkins

Christopher Tompkins was a 20-year-old man who lived with his mum in Ellerslie, Georgia. He was working as part of a local surveying company when he disappeared.

On the 25th of January, 2002, Chris arrived at work at 8:00am. He left his car parked at the office and shared a ride with a co-worker to the site they were working on that day located on County Line Road in Ellerslie, which is part of Harris County in Georgia.

Chris was working alongside three other co-workers that day, and the four men were all in a line within 50 feet of each other.

Chris was last seen at 1:30pm. One of his co-workers looked away from Chris very briefly to complete a task, but when he looked back to where Chris should have been standing, he wasn’t there.

The co-worker first thought that Chris may have just stepped into the treeline to go to the toilet, but after shouting for him and not getting any response, he told the other workers on site. The three men then walked over to the place where Chris was working that day, but all they found were his work tools on the ground and one of his work boots hanging from the barbed wire fence.

The workers then called 911 to report Chris as missing, but the police said that they were unable to do anything until the 24 hour period had passed. Chris’s mother was informed at 4:15pm that he was missing, and she questioned why it took so long for someone to tell her that he was missing.

Once the 24 hour period had passed, the police conducted a search of the area where Christopher was last seen. Close to where his co-workers found his boot, the police found a piece of blue fabric that matched the material and colour of the pants that Chris was wearing that day. They also found 12 cents on the ground underneath the fabric, almost as if it had fallen out of his pocket.

There were no other leads in Chris’s case until 5 months later when a farmer found a single boot in the swampland at the edge of his property. This boot was later determined to belong to Chris and was found less than a mile away from the place where he was last seen.

Chris has not been seen or heard from since, and his body has never been found.

Chris’s coworkers were questioned by the police, but they are not believed to be suspects in the case. However, one of the co-workers did obtain an attorney the week after Chris’s disappearance although no one knows why. The police have publicly stated that they believe Chris just walked away.

Chris’s mum thinks that the co-worker who obtained an attorney knows more about Chris’s disappearance than he is letting on. She also believes that Chris met with foul play, and is most likely deceased.

Over the years, there have been several theories as to what may have happened to Chris. One is that he simply walked off on his own accord like the police say. But why would he take off his boots? And how did he disappear from the scene so quickly?

Another theory is that Chris’s co-workers were involved in his disappearance. This would explain why one of the co-workers obtained an attorney.

There is also the possibility that a wild animal was responsible for Chris’s vanishing. But if this is the case, surely the co-workers would have seen or heard something?

There are also a few bizarre theories surrounding Chris’s disappearance, some think that bigfoot was responsible. Others have suggested that Chris fell into a time portal, which explains why he disappeared so quickly. Some have even suggested that he was abducted by aliens.

Chris’s boss said that in the days leading up to his disappearance he had been acting strangely, but his mother denied this and said that he had just been his normal self.

At the time of his disappearance, Chris was 20 years old. He was between 5″7′ and 5″9′, and weighed roughly 130lbs. He was wearing a black shirt, a blue and grey plaid jacket with a hood, navy blue Dickies work pants, tan coloured FUBU work boots, a black skullcap and a black watch. His hair was braided and he may have had a moustache, goatee or beard. On his right arm, he has a tattoo of an ice cream cone with his nickname, Chris, written in vertical letters inside the design. The ice cream section of the tattoo is the head of a joker wearing a hat.
