13 Famous People Who Have Been Reported Missing

146,376 views 13 items
Who are some of the most famous missing people in history? This list includes very well-known actors and actresses, journalists, musicians, socialites and even heads of state who have all, at some point, been reported missing. The circumstances of their disappearances are all fascinating, and some, sadly, have never been found.

One of the more high-profile missing persons cases of 2012 isn't actually a missing persons case at all. Katherine Jackson was reported as missing in late-July of 2012, by her nephew, Trent Jackson. The whole situation is totally bizarre. Ms. Jackson was, when she was supposedly missing, actually in Arizona with other Jackson family members, playing Uno.

Some of the most well-known missing people on this list vanished forever, with no trace left behind. Their bodies were never found, and friends and family were left to wonder forever what happened. Conspiracy theories about their fates, not surprisingly, run rampant. A few musicians on this list, including Kurt Cobain, are members of the so-called "27 Club," because they vanished and/or died when they were just 27 years old.

Other famous missing persons listed here were discovered weeks, months, or even years later. A status update is included for each person on this list.

    Actor and apparent drug addict Nick Stahl was reported missing by his estranged wife, Rose Stahl, in May of 2012. She became alarmed after she couldn't reach Stahl for nearly a week and indicated she was worried he might have overdosed.

    Status: Found

    Within a few days after the story hit the media, Stahl emerged from a downtown Los Angeles crack house saying he was fine and that he'd gone into a 30-day inpatient rehab program. That wasn't the end of the drama, however, because in June of 2012, Stahl went missing yet again. He apparently decided rehab wasn't for him, so he checked out of the facility and vanished.

    Nick Stahl wasn't missing for long the second time around, either: He surfaced days after he bolted from the rehab facility, and his wife Rose reported that he was attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and "in a good place."
