This unsolved mystery has baffled investigators for 60 years.
On November 21, 1958, just a little over an hour away from Detroit, Michigan where my grandparents were celebrating the birth of my mother, another girl, seven-year-old Adele Marie Wells in Flint, was told to stay home from school because she was sick. Adele was one of nine children in the home, so her parents ran a bustling household. The Jefferson Elementary School student did her best to stay put, but in the afternoon Adele decided to head over to school to finish out the second half of the day. She first made a stop at her grandmother’s house which was just a few blocks away from her school. After her social call, Adele left her grandmother’s to walk the rest of her journey to Jefferson Elementary, but she never arrived at her destination.
Adele has never been seen or heard from again.
During the initial investigation, police spoke to reliable witnesses who all said they saw a girl between the ages of eight and 10-years-old being carried away and placed into a black Chevrolet. They described the suspect as being a black man with a light complexion wearing a gray coat and red socks. He has never been identified, but investigators don’t even know if this man is even related to Adele’s disappearance. Yet, other children who attended Adele’s school told police that there was a man that drove a black Chevrolet who, days before Adele went missing, tried luring them inside of his vehicle.
At the time of her disappearance and possible kidnapping, Adele was 3’6″ tall and weighed 45 – 60 pounds. She had black hair (with bangs) and brown eyes. She was described as having a small and skinny stature.
Anyone with information regarding this 60-year-old case is urged to contact the Flint Police Department at (810) 237-6945.

It’s been over two weeks since Marizah Thomas’s family has had contact with the Ohio teen. The 14-year-old was last seen leaving her grandmother’s home in Clarksburg as she got inside of an unknown vehicle with an unidentified person or persons. There is a no contact court order against Marizah’s biological mother and the teen’s father believes that his ex has something to do with the young girl’s disappearance. Police have tried to locate Marizah’s biological mother to no avail.
A woman named Kimberly Strausbaugh made a public plea on Facebook asking for help in locating Marizah:
“I need your help in finding a 14 year old girl that went missing (or believed to have ran away) this past Saturday. Her name is Marizah Thomas and her family wants her back home and is worried sick about her. Please ask your children if they know her and if they’ve had contact with or can get in contact with Marizah. We don’t want her to get suspicious of our searching for her and then her stop talking to her friends, so please ask your children to be as inconspicuous as possible if they do happen to make contact with her. Thanks so much for your help!!”
Marizah is described as being 5’2″ tall and 125 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink hoodie and yellow pants that had emojis on them. At this time, Marizah is considered to be an endangered runaway, but the circumstances surrounding her disappearance remain a mystery
Anyone with additional information or questions regarding this case should contact the Ross County Sheriff’s Office at (740) 773-1185.
