Police in an Ohio suburb of Fairfield are baffled by the disappearance of a 23 year old woman by the name of Kaitlin Markham who disappeared without a trace from her home on Saturday August 13th. At the scene police found no signs of a struggle or forced entry. The woman’s keys purse and vehicle were all intact the only missing thing was her cell phone which officials say has not had any activity since1245 am the morning of the disappearance. Just thought it was interesting and wanted to see what other ATS members believe. a runaway? Professional hit job? The police missing clues? An alien abduction? Time travel? No theory is too farfetched. But please be nice. Below is the interview with her fiancé and father on the today show.

Is it not possible that she just left the house with someone?
And never came back.

Anything is possible my friend, it could have been any number of things but I just like to hear others opinions some have some very interesting ones.

I'm from Cincinnati, and I really hope they find her. With all the disappearances lately, and their not so great recovery, I really hope she is okay.

hi op
heres an interesting dissapearance in front of witnesses
this is one from my childhood that started me to seek more at the age of 10
heres the story

Next is an account of a man who disappeared in full
view of 2 witnesses in 19th century England. It was September 3, 1873. A
man named James Worson had accepted a challenge to race in record time
from the town of Leamington to the town of Coventry, a 20-mile trek. He
had been basting of his foot skills and then asked to prove them, so
with sporting good spirits he set about to do just that. Two
friends, Hammerson Burns and Barham Wise, followed behind in a
horse-drawn gig. Burns brought alonghis camera. As the three traversed
down the country road all were in high spirits. The day couldn't have
been prettier. Worson was never out of their sight and would often turn
around while running to exchange some friendly words with the two
riders. Running in the middle of the road, Worson suddenly appeared to
stumble and pitch forward, having time enough for only one short,
piercing scream. Wise later said, "It was the most ghastly sound ether
of us had ever heard." But as Worson pitched forward with that terrible
cry, instead of falling to the ground as he appeared to about to have
done, he completely and totally vanished in mid-fall before ever
striking the ground. The road itself told the story and Wise took the
pictures to prove it. There, in the soft dirt, were Worson's footprints.
They led down the middle of the road, looked as if the runner stumbled,
and there they disappeared. When the two men returned to Leamington with
their incredible story, search parties were formed to scour the entire
area from Leamington to Coventry, but not one shred of evidence was ever
found of James Worson, nor would there ever be in the years to follow.
The bloodhounds used in the search were strangely reluctant to approach
the spot where Worson disappeared. He was never seen or heard from
again. At least, not in his old earthly body, for if reports are to be
believed, for many years after James Worson's tragic and unbelievable
disappearance, a ghostly runner with an eerie green glow would be seen
making the trek from Leamington to Coventry on black lonely nights on
the empty road. What happened to James Worson remains a mystery to this
day. What made him scream so terribly, did he see something the others
did not?

You say no theory is far-fetched, huh?

Then my theory is that the Lochness Monster kidnapped her.

aliens or time travel? really?


the simplest explanation is usually the truth.

always has been, always will be.

Can't the police just triangulate on where the phone is?

Interesting piece here thanks for taking the time to share it here on this post. Has anyone ever tried to capture the ghostly runner on camera or any form of ghost hunters trying to investigate?

No sign of forced entry, no sign of struggle, car at the house, keys in the house, only thing missing is the cell phone.

OK, here's my half-baked theory. Somebody knocks on the door, "Excuse me miss, but I'm having car trouble (or something). May I use your phone?" She goes to get her cell, perpetrator notices she's alone. He (or she) pretends to use the phone, takes a long time. The young lady steps out to see why the call is taking so long, or to retrieve her phone, and she is abducted. Perpetrator takes the phone because it has prints, and takes the battery out so it can't be located.

Just a guess, anyway. Seems to fit the facts.

If that were the case, there would be a ransom note demanding "Tree-fiddy"

Sorry, couldn't resist the South Park reference.

interesting theory here. It did cross my mind and it does fit all the facts around the case. Who knows what the deal is but if someone abducted here they knew what they were doing and they did it clean.

Ohio is right next to Pennsylvania which has the highest rate of disappearances with no trace ,according to Whitley Streiber,s "Dreamland" show and site about missing persons,who wear
brightly colored clothing into the neighboring woods or even into a state forest. Invisible entities attack hikers and
travelers-on-foot scratching them severely ,causing deadly infection. Many victims turn up dead ,as if dropped out of the air , naked with scratches all over them (the body turning up a year later in the same area of disappearance. However, most victims reappear with no memory of what happened. They appear again many months later crossing over to this world from another dimension or were abducted by a half-visible quick-moving entity that makes the victim invisible along with the invisible monster. Native Americans call it the Windigo which has tenticles and attacks its victims during protracted rain or snow storms ,carrying the lone hiker off into the air-the mutillated or mummified body is found high in a tree far from the abduction site, a year later.
