In America, a child goes missing every 40 seconds in the United States. Up to 800,000 children a year disappear without a trace and every day, approximately 2000 people are reported missing. To the horror of family, friends and often the world, many of them are never found. Where they are and what happened to them often remains an unsolved mystery.

In most cases, criminal investigators can piece together a series of events that led to their disappearance and, with dedication and skill, can track the disappeared down. Even in the tragic cases when the missing people aren't found alive, a sense of closure about why they disappeared and who was responsible is still possible. But what about the people who seem to disappear into thin air, leaving no traces as to where they went, leaving investigators and the public baffled?

Many of these people are adults who have no known enemies and who have never exhibited any signs that they would leave. They simply vanish with no signs of struggle or violence, as if they never existed. Here, we've compiled information on some of the most famous and mysterious cases of people vanishing, seemingly into thin air. Some of their stories leave chills down your spine while others simply perplexed the world. Where did they go? Where they ever found? And if not, will their long-standing cases ever be solved?

In early 2014, the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members, vanished from radar while flying over Vietnamese airspace. Malaysia Airlines officials said that the Boeing 777 sent no distress signals and no wreckage could be found. All contact with the plane was lost. The plane, along with everyone board, simply disappeared. Extensive searches from multiple nations have turned up nothing since contact was lost. Possible explanations for the disappearance include terrorist attacks orchestrated by passengers or crew, but nothing has been confirmed. The missing flight is still a mystery.
