On May 8th 1982, a passerby noticed something strange on the side of Petra Road. There, merely 60 feet from the pavement was the badly decomposed body of a female. Authorities did everything they could at the time in hopes of identifying her but by 1987, the case had gone cold and the remains were laid to rest in Wyocena, Wisconsin as a Jane Doe.
On September 21, 1982 a group of loggers discovered the body of an unidentified male while working on a private property. Very little could be determined about who this individual had been in life as the body had been exposed to the elements for so long. Investigators from the Barron County’s sheriff’s department have worked tirelessly for the last 36 years in hopes of identifying and reuniting John Doe with his loved ones.
On October 19, 2002 an innocent group of Boy Scouts made a discovery that would forever haunt them. While on the side of a roadway collecting trash for a charity project, a young teen picked up a garbage bag that looked similar to the ones they were using and peeked inside. He saw what he thought to be the skull of a deer, upon closer examination however, he realized he was holding the skull of a human being.
Abby Lynn Patterson was visiting her mother in Lumberton, North Carolina, the town she had grown up in. On September 5, 2017 She told her Mom she was going out to run some errands and would be back in an hour. Abby has not been seen or heard from since. Looking back through the town’s history, a pattern of young women vanishing in this manner emerges. Some women have turned up, deceased, in abandoned homes and on abandoned properties. Other young ladies, like Abby herself, are still missing. This leaves the community wondering – are these happenings a coincidence or is a predator stalking the community?

As I sat at my family’s Thanksgiving, I found myself distracted by a post I have been researching. A young man, Sam Davis, has been missing from his Charlotte home in North Carolina since June 29th 2018. This means of course, there is one empty seat this holiday season that shouldn’t be. This is a recent and developing case meaning it is extremely important to share Sam’s picture and story. As the holidays approach and the temperature outside dips Sam’s case needs a spotlight shined on it now more than ever before.
Amber Lynn Wilde, age 19, was last heard from on September 23rd 1998 by her father Steve Wilde. She called him to say that she’d been in a minor car accident while on her way to class at the University of Wisconsin in Green Bay. Amber had rear-ended another vehicle and hit her head on the windshield giving her a bad headache. She told her dad she had seen medical staff in the school. They advised her that she most likely had a concussion and should be checked in on through-out the day, either in person or by phone. Amber’s father called her several times the next morning, as previously discussed, but she did not answer. Feeling something was wrong, he drove to her apartment from Mayville, WI. Steve Wilde could not locate his daughter or her car therefore reported her missing. She had been pregnant at the time of her disappearance.
