She left home at 8:00 a.m., but an hour later Michelle Ellis had disappeared and her car was found out of gas near a service station.



Michelle Ellis Missing 1978

In 1978, Michelle Ellis was living with her parents and working as a model part-time while she was studying at the Herron School of Art at Indiana-Purdue University. Michelle had also worked at a Sears department store in Indianapolis, Indiana, but she decided to leave her job and reportedly quit on July 28. On August 2, Michelle Ellis was last seen leaving her home around 8:00 a.m. and just an hour later, her vehicle—1973 Oldsmobile Omega—was located near a service station. It had run out of gas. No one has seen the 23-year-old since that time.

Upon inspection, it was noted that Michelle’s vehicle’s driver side door was locked, however, the passenger side was accessible. Her personal items were still inside including her purse, car keys, driver’s license, checkbooks, credit cards, identification, and $2 in cash. Michelle Ellis seemingly vanished without a trace, that is, until a little over two years after she went missing. It was then that her parents reportedly received a phone call from someone who said, “This is Michelle.” While authorities never confirmed that the caller was indeed Michelle Ellis, the call adds to the mystery surrounding this case.

At the time of her disappearance, Michelle Eliis stood 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighed 115 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Michelle was last seen wearing a gray sweater with multi-colored stripes and black cuffs, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. She would be 66-years-old at this time of this publication.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department at (317) 327-6160 or their local authorities.

Marialice Clark, 14, Vanished In 1972 Under Strange Circumstances

Her brother believes she may have fallen victim to the government’s takedown of the Black Panther Party.



Marialice Clark Missing

Five years ago, Ed Clark launched a petition in the hopes of attracting the attention of former President Barack Obama. Back in 1970, when Ed was 15-years-old, his 12-year-old sister Marialice Clark was named in a government affidavit as an informant against the National Committee to Combat Fascism (NCCF), a group he describes as “an off-shoot of the Black Panther Party.” Two years later, at just 14-years-old, Marialice would go missing, never to be heard from again. Ed penned a lengthy tale about his family and he hoped that President Obama would approve of a relaunching of an investigation into Marialice’s case. It doesn’t seem that Ed Clark’s dreams have been fulfilled just yet. (more…)
