Introducing The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra

Hosted and narrated by John Stamos, The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra is a complicated, nuanced story of one imperfect man trying to redeem himself by pulling off the perfect crime. Did you ever feel like everything?s broken, and it?s your job to fix it? That?s how Barry Keenan was feeling back in 1963. He was broke, unemployed, hooked on booze and pills, and his family was falling apart. Barry needed a miracle. And against all odds, he got one. One day the voice of God came over the radio in Barry?s car and told him there was a simple solution to all his problems: all he had to do was kidnap Frank Sinatra, Jr. For the first time ever, Barry Keenan shares his version of the bizarre story in his own words, from beginning to end. This is just a preview of The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra, but you can listen to full episodes at wondery.fm/TGS_TheVanished.

Bobbi Ann Campbell

24-year-old Bobbi Ann Campbell disappeared from Salt Lake City, Utah, in late December of 1994. Bobbi left her home in Draper, UT, with her 5-year-old daughter, Stephanie, to spend a few days with friends in Salt Lake City. After she got to her friend?s home, Bobbi left Stephanie with the friend so she could run a few quick errands. Stephanie waited in the window for her mom to return, but she never showed up, causing her to panic. Her mom had never left her before and not come back. More than 26 years later, Stephanie is still searching for her mom.

Terri Ackerman

Terri Ackerman spent much of her time babysitting her two grandchildren. On Thursday, August 23rd, 2018, Terri was at her daughter?s home watching the kids. She left that evening, hugging everyone goodbye, stating she would see them again in the morning. What no one knew at the time was that this was the last time they would see Terri. When she got home, Terri called her daughter, Ambyr, to let her know that she made it to her Lochbuie, Colorado, home safely. Everything seemed fine. Later that night, she called Ambyr back again and seemed upset but didn?t go into detail. She said she wouldn?t be able to watch the kids the following day. Ambyr never heard from her mother again.

Ian Eckles Part 3: The Broken Window

Ian Eckles was last seen leaving his home on May 16, 2020, headed to go hunting with a friend in the mountains of Washington. Ian never met up with his friend, and no one was able to reach him for days. This sparked a massive search that went on for weeks after Ian?s car was spotted being driven by another man. On June 14, 2020, Ian was still missing, but the man believed to be responsible for his disappearance and murder was apprehended. This man is also believed to have been involved in at least two other deaths. So who is this man, and where is Ian?

After Jorge Alcantara-Gonzalez was apprehended, he was taken directly to an interview with investigators. In Part 3, we are sharing parts of this interview with you. Tune in to hear what Alcantara claims happened and what investigators believe happened the night Ian disappeared.

Ian Eckles Part 2: The Manhunt

By May 23, 2020, Ian Eckles had not been seen in a week. He had plans to go hunting with a friend but never showed up at their agreed meeting location. The next day, Ian didn't report to work. Ian's family and friends launched a massive search across a vast territory encompassing the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest along the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains in Washington. They had been going for days without sleep, searching tirelessly for Ian on nothing but desperation and adrenaline. Then, Ian's silver FJ cruiser burst out of nowhere, bounding down the mountain toward them in what sounded like a horrible nightmare, but it was actually happening. Even more strange was the fact that Ian wasn't driving the car. Ian's friends had a brief altercation with the man behind the wheel, and then he took off. A chase ensued, but they lost sight of Ian's vehicle. This chance meeting with the man driving Ian's FJ Cruiser sparked a massive manhunt for an armed and dangerous fugitive.

Ian Eckles Part 1: The Hunting Trip

41-year-old Ian Eckles spent the majority of his free time outdoors and loved to hunt. So when he and a friend made plans to spend a weekend hunting in the mountains near Liberty, Washington, nothing was out of the ordinary. However, when Ian?s friend got to the spot where they agreed to meet up in a national forest, Ian wasn?t there. In fact, there was no sign of Ian, his car, or any of his camping equipment. For more than a year, Ian?s family, friends, and law enforcement have been looking for Ian. They haven?t found him yet, but what they have uncovered is bigger than anyone could have ever anticipated.

Case Continued: Angela Mack and Thomas "Mikey" Rettew - Reasonable Doubt

Over the last two weeks, we?ve continued to tell you the story of the disappearances of Angela Mack and her son, Mikey. Yesterday, you heard an expert fire investigator discuss the plausibility of the theory that Angie and Mikey were burned in Clarence Krusen?s home furnace. Was it possible that their bodies were completely destroyed, leaving no physical evidence to be recovered? Today we?re bringing you the final episode in this series. We?re going to take a look at all of the other characters and moving parts in this story. In the end, we?ll leave you with a question: did Clarence Krusen kill Angela and Mikey and burn their bodies as investigators say he did? Or is there a possibility something else happened, that there is truth in many of the persistent rumors in Salem, Arkansas? Could this case have an entirely different ending and remains anything but solved?

In early April, the Fulton County Sheriff?s Office announced that they had solved and closed the 2002 disappearances of 20-year-old Angela Mack and her son, Thomas ?Mikey? Rettew.

Case Continued: Angela Mack and Thomas "Mikey" Rettew - House of Cards

Three months ago, we brought you the story of the disappearance of Angela Mack and her son Thomas "Mikey" Rettew from a small town in northwest Arkansas. No one knew who had seen Angela and Mikey last or under what circumstances. Our records requests with law enforcement were ignored, and our efforts to conduct an in-depth interview with the investigator were denied. Then, in a bizarre plot twist that seemed almost stranger than fiction, the investigating agency announced that the disappearances had been solved and the case closed almost exactly one month after we aired the original episode. But is the case closed and the mystery solved? We'll let you decide.

Case Update: Chris Turner

23-year-old Chris Turner disappeared from Las Vegas, Nevada, in early August of 2016. We first covered Chris Turner?s case on July 5, 2017. Shortly after we aired his story, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department closed his case, stating that he had been seen alive. We brought you an update about Chris on September 1, 2017, to discuss the developments. Unfortunately, it took two years to get the case reopened. After his family submitted their DNA, they got a shocking phone call. They learned there was no possible way Chris could have been seen alive during the summer of 2017.

Amanda Grazewski

23-year-old Amanda Grazewski disappeared from an apartment in Derry, New Hampshire, in the early morning hours of March 17, 2020. Amanda was spending the night there along with a few other people. The others reported that they went to bed, and by the time they awoke the following morning, Amanda was gone. Strangely, all of her belongings were still there, including her bags with clothes, cell phone, and purse. Using Amanda?s phone, they contacted one of Amanda?s friends, who went to social media to see if anyone had seen or heard from Amanda. More than 14 months later, they are still searching for Amanda.

Donna Gibson

On the evening of February 24, 1995, 32-year-old Donna Gibson was at home in Louisa, Virginia, with her husband and four young children. She was sick that evening with a respiratory infection and chose to sleep on the couch. Early the next morning, her daughter thought she saw Donna asleep and went quietly back to bed, but just several hours later, she had vanished. There was no evidence of a struggle and no sign of a break-in. However, Donna didn?t disappear without a trace, and all paths pointed her family to one person in the search for her more than 26 years later.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Donna Gibson, please call the Louisa County Sheriff?s Office at 540-967-1234.

Harry Milligan

On Saturday, June 30, 1984, 21-year-old Harry Milligan finished his job painting a house and met some friends at a bar called Waterworks in Albia, Iowa. The bar was just over a ten-minute drive from his home in nearby Avery, Iowa. We don?t know for sure what transpired inside the bar that night. There have been stories that Harry won a large sum of money in a card game, but this can?t be substantiated. Harry?s friends reported that later they grabbed a six-pack to go and rode around cruising. The group returned to where they had parked their cars and went their separate ways. His friends said they saw Harry drive off in the direction of his home.

The following morning, Harry?s mom was worried that he hadn?t returned home. She began calling around, but no one had seen or heard from Harry. Later, after searching the roads between Albia and Avery, his mom called the police to report Harry missing. There have been many rumors about what happened to Harry, but more than 36 years later, they are still searching for Harry.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Harry Milligan, please contact the Monroe County Sheriff?s Office at 641-932-7815

Kristofer Couture

On January 27, 2019, an off-duty law enforcement officer observed an abandoned car at a popular trailhead in Chilliwack, British Columbia. The vehicle had a broken rear window, and the police later impounded it, but no one ever came forward. Several months later, the RCMP sent a notice to its registered owner, 25-year-old Kristofer Couture, a native of Alberta. By that time, it was May, and no one had seen or heard from Kristofer in over three months. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Kristofer Couture, please call the Chilliwack Royal Canadian Mounted Police at 604-792-4611. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Kacey Perry Part 2

On September 14, 1990, 10-year-old Kacey Perry disappeared while visiting with her father at his home in Portland, Oregon, after the two had a disagreement. In Part 1, we learned that it?s believed Kacey made it to a store blocks away from her father?s home, possibly to make a phone call to ask someone to pick her up. Witnesses spotted her at this location, and her belongings were later found at the store. It remains unclear if Kacey was picked up by someone she knew or possibly went with a stranger. In the early days of the investigation, one person close to her mom stood out. His name is Brian Keith George. Nearly a year after Kacey disappeared, he was arrested for a bank robbery and had something shocking to tell investigators.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Kacey Perry, please call the Portland Police Bureau at 503-823-0000.

Kacey Perry Part 1

On September 14, 1990, 10-year-old Kacey Perry was visiting with her father at his home in Portland, Oregon. That evening, the two had a disagreement during a conversation about Kacey coming to live with him full-time. Her father told Kacey to go to bed for the night, which he believed she had done. He went outside and chatted with a neighbor for a bit. When he returned, he found that Kacey was missing. Her father drove around the neighborhood but could not find Kacey. That is when he alerted the police that his daughter was missing, and the search began. No one could have guessed that more than 30 years later, they would still be searching for Kacey.

Skylar Ware

On May 10, 2020, 25-year-old Skylar Ware wished his mom a happy Mother's Day. He was in Kansas City, Missouri, and she was in the process of moving to Florida, so the two didn't see each other often but kept in frequent contact. That was the last time Skylar's mother ever heard from her only child, and his posts on social media stopped soon after, leaving everyone to wonder what happened to him. Nearly a year later, with no leads, they're still wondering, and Skylar is still missing.

If you have any information about Skylar Ware's disappearance, please call the Kansas City Police Department at 816-234-5136. You may also call their TIPS hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477). Alternatively, you can contact the Jackson County, Missouri Sheriff's Office at 816-541-8017.

James Wiggins

In December of 2002, 21-year old James Wiggins left his home in Ruston, Louisiana, on foot, saying he was going to a nearby grocery store. James never returned home. The following morning, the owner of a convenience shop located several miles outside of Ruston found a young man sleeping at his store's doorstep. When he opened up his shop, the man came in and bought a pack of cigarettes. The owner checked the man's identification and reported to the police that he was sure it was James Wiggins. Over the years, there have been some bizarre leads that have come in. Some of these leads point to James being alive, while others point to him being the victim of foul play, but no one knows for sure.

If you have any information about the disappearance of James Wiggins, please contact the Ruston Police Department at (318) 251-8621 or you can contact Ruston Lincoln Crime Stoppers at 318-255-1111.

Kyle Fleischmann

On the chilly fall evening of November 8, 2007, 24-year-old Kyle Fleischmann went to dinner, drinks, and a show with friends in Charlotte, North Carolina. The evening was a celebratory affair- a friend's birthday, another friend's recent job change. However, the night didn't end on a festive note when friends went their separate ways, and Kyle seemingly vanished into the night, leaving behind only a small number of telling but mysterious clues. More than 13 years have passed, and the last sightings of Kyle include some grainy surveillance footage and the eyewitness account of a cab driver, who watched Kyle walk down the street and disappear from view, and seemingly, life.

If you have any information about Kyle Fleischmann?s disappearance, you are asked to call the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department at 704-336-7600.

Leona Kinsey Part 2

Leona Kinsey disappeared from La Grande, Oregon, on October 25, 1999. A friend last saw Leona at a local Walmart. According to her friend, Leona said she planned to meet a man at a nearby grocery store and then stop by her friend's house around 7 PM that night.

Veronica Reyes-Diaz

On Friday, January 17, 2020, Veronica Reyes-Diaz left the home she shared with her husband and three sons in Dover, Florida, to spend the evening out with friends. After gathering at a local restaurant, one of Veronica's friends dropped her off at home, and Veronica left in her own vehicle to pick up her kids from her sister's house. Veronica was seen on a neighbor's surveillance returning home with the kids. Veronica tucked her kids into bed and has never been seen again. Veronica's family tracked her steps by piecing together cell phone location data and surveillance video. Still, her family feels they are no closer to finding answers more than a year after she disappeared.

Angela Mack and Thomas "Mikey" Rettew

In 2002, 20-year-old disappeared Angela Mack disappeared from the small northern Arkansas town of Salem. It may have been September, but some people say it was later in the year. She wouldn't be reported missing for many months, or maybe even years. Her four-year-old son, Thomas "Mikey" Rettew, also vanished, but missing persons flyers note that he disappeared from Missouri and the date he was last seen is uncertain. Supposedly, there is a photo of Mikey that is date stamped well after September 1, 2002, but nobody knows for sure. In fact, no one seems to know when or where Angela and Mikey were last seen, or who was the last to see them. Today's episode brings into focus the stories of two people who appeared to simply stop existing, and it seemed as though there were never any real search efforts put forth to find them. Their loved ones hope that a renewed interest in the case will help them find out what happened to Angie and Mikey.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Angela Mack or Thomas Rettew, you are asked to call The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST or 1-800-843-5678.

UPDATE- In April of 2021, local law enforcement announced they believe they have solved the case. In their episode, we discussed a couple in Missouri who had babysat Mikey and were interested in adopting him. The man, Clarence Krusen, passed away in 2012, but his wife, Barbara Krusen, is still alive. She was given a polygraph and failed. Later, Barabara confessed that her husband had killed Angie and Mikey. She claims that he burned their remains in a furnace on their property.

Adam Castillo

21-year-old Adam Castillo left his Willcox, AZ home on the evening of September 13, 2008. His plans that night were to attend a party. He left his phone and wallet behind at the house.

Luzeia Mathis

Sometime, likely in late August of 2019, 18-year-old Luzeia Mathis disappeared from her Phoenix, Arizona apartment. Luzeia was an independent young woman who lived alone, so no one immediately noticed that she was gone. Her close family members thought she was off doing all the things teens that age do and that they would hear from her soon. That was until her aunt received a phone call in September of 2019, one of those calls we all dread from the police. They were called to Luzeia's apartment due to a bad smell. Officers entered the apartment and found a horrific scene inside, but Luzeia was not there.

Echo Lloyd

Echo Lloyd last spoke with her daughter, Kelsey, on May 9, 2020, the day before Mother?s Day. Kelsey stopped by Echo?s Edwards, Missouri home the next day to drop off flowers and a Mother?s Day card. Echo wasn?t there, and her car wasn?t in the driveway. Kelsey left the items outside for her mom when she returned home. Over the next several days, Kelsey kept trying to reach Echo, but her calls kept going straight to voicemail. Her concerns began to grow, and by the 15th, she made the trip back over to Echo?s home. Kelsey found the car was in the driveway, but there was no trace of Echo. While Kelsey was searching the house for Echo, she found Echo?s purse, her ID, and some money. Missing along with Echo was her cell phone, keys, and medications. Since that time, suspicions have focused on one person who lived near Echo?s home and had taken an unhealthy interest in her since she moved to Edwards.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Echo Llyod, you are urged to call the Missouri State Highway Patrol at (573) 526-6178.

Nico?s story is an uncommon one, with complicated twists of family courts, international law, and diplomacy that often forget the child lost in the midst.

If you have any information about Nico Johnson, please contact the San Bernardino County, California, District Attorney?s office at 909-677-0591 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.

Rosemary Rodriguez

On the evening of October 6, 2019, Rosemary Rodriguez went to dinner with her boyfriend and her mother. On the way home, they dropped Rosemary's mother off and headed to her boyfriend's home. According to her boyfriend, Rosemary left his residence in Longview, Texas, after a brief argument. Two days later, a colleague called Rosemary's family to tell them she hadn't been to work, something very much out of character for Rosemary. Rosemary's family immediately called the police to report her missing. More than a year has passed since Rosemary's daughters last saw their mom, and every day seems to bring more and more dread that something awful happened.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Rosemary Rodriguez, please call the Gregg County Sheriff's Office at 903-236-8400.

You can follow Rosemary's story on social media at Finding Rosemary Rodriguez.

Case Update: Grundy County Jane Doe

It has been nearly two years since we shared the story of Grundy County Jane Doe, whose remains were discovered in October 1976 by a farmer in rural Seneca, Illinois. When we initially researched her story, we learned that her case was reopened by ambitious Deputy Coroner Brandon Johnson, who works in Grundy County, Illinois. At that time, the coroner?s office had recently exhumed Jane Doe and had sent a bone to a lab for DNA testing, but results had not come back from the lab. The coroner?s office considered several possibilities for identifying Jane Doe if her DNA was not matched to a profile already in the CODIS database. We spoke to Brandon again recently to hear more about what has taken place in the effort to identify Jane Doe.

If you have any information about Jane Doe?s identity or her murder, please contact Grundy County Deputy Coroner Brandon Johnson at 815-941-3359 or email him at [email protected]

You can follow Jane Doe?s story on Facebook at facebook.com/grundycountycoldcase.

Case Update: Paige Johnson

We initially told Paige?s story in February of 2020. Since that time, there have been many developments in her case, including the recovery of her remains and the arrest of the person suspected of seriously harming or killing her. At the time we first aired the podcast, Paige?s family was still looking for answers, distributing flyers, conducting searches, and meeting with law enforcement in the hopes of making progress in bringing Paige home. We left off with a brokenhearted family who had been forever changed by Paige?s disappearance and ten years without answers.

If you have any information about the death of Paige Johnson, please call the Covington, Kentucky Police Department at 859-292-2222.

Camille Dardanes Dotson

Camille Dardanes Dotson disappeared from Las Vegas, Nevada, sometime in September of 1994. While she once had a promising future, Camille had been on a downward spiral for quite some time. Unfortunately, it took months to report Camille missing, and the police didn?t seem very interested in looking for her. Camille?s mom moved to Las Vegas and began spending her free time searching for her daughter, but no one had seen Camille. Mysteriously, Camille?s missing person?s case was closed by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department months later and wasn?t reopened until the early 2000s, when a friend began seeking answers. Today, the search for what happened to Camille continues with her daughter, Ashley, who was just a young child when her mom vanished. During this renewed search, they have found was that in the lead-up to her disappearance, Camille was involved with some violent men, had ties to organized crime, and was possibly working as an informant.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Camille Dardanes Dotson, please call the Las Vegas Metro Police Department at (702) 828-3111.

You can follow developments in this case on Facebook at Camille Dardanes Dotson - Missing Person.

Scott Leo later stated that Zachary left on foot that night, but he was never seen or heard from again. Six months after he had vanished, police made a gruesome discovery. We all thought that justice would be swift, but we were wrong. It would be two more years before charges were filed against Leo.

Roger Taylor

On March 10, 2019, Roger Taylor disappeared. He was at his home in Vernon, Alabama, and according to his wife, he began acting out of character. For several years, Roger had been disabled after a stroke and several other serious health problems. He wasn't known to leave home often or drive due to his limited mobility. His wife said that he left that day in their car headed across the state line into Monroe County, Mississippi. He was allegedly headed to his daughter's home. Roger texted his daughter at 9:44 PM, stating that he was lost and stuck. A couple of days after Roger disappeared, his car was found abandoned on a dead-end road in Monroe County, Mississippi. Despite extensive searches of the area, no trace of Roger Taylor has been found. Since the day Roger disappeared, suspicion swirled around those who last saw him and their stories about what occurred leading up to his disappearance. 

If you have any information about the disappearance of Roger Taylor, please call the Monroe County Sheriff's Department at 662-369-2468.

Viola Findley, a 28-year-old mother of 3, was visiting family in Florida in September of 1983. After her visit, it is believed and assumed that she was making her way back home to her children in Waterloo, Iowa. However, Viola never made it home. The point in which Viola went missing is a mystery. Proper steps were not taken when Viola went missing, and the family has been hard-pressed to get answers. There has never been a proper search, and documentation of certain events in Viola's life has been lost due to natural disasters. Those who would have memories that could lead authorities in the right direction have either left this world or simply can't clearly recall the events.
