GOOD READS: Gone missing

Posted By on Wed, May 8, 2013 at 11:32 AM

After this week's incredible discovery of three Ohio women who've been missing for 10 years, gruesome details have emerged about their experience and we've been reminded of others who've been lost and only sometimes found. Here, a collection of stories about what it means to be missing.

From Outside, "Why Noah Went To The Woods," the story of a Marine who served three tours in Iraq before vanishing into the Montana wilderness.

"No Earthly Trace" from Atlanta Magazine tells the story of how a son gone missing without a trace haunts his parents.

When Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba in 2005, her story consumed American TV. But a deeper look at the story shows how it also destroyed the tiny island. From Vanity Fair, "Missing White Female."

In Argentina in the '70s and '80s, thousands of students and activists were jailed and killed, and when those who were pregnant gave birth in jail their children were given to people who supported the violent regime. In "The Daughter of the Disappeared," from Marie Claire, one of those children unravels the truth about herself and her family.
