    Great video, got some creep vibes at the end. I wanted to add that other times people dissapear because of the goverment actions for example in Argentina there are people who went missing during the militar ditartorship. And many of the victims´s children, who are now adults, dont know they are missing. There are many personal reasons to, when a police department in usa looked for the identity of the remainig corpes in Gacy´s basement they found out that a lot of gay men who were reported missing were alive and just run from home
