What Happened to the McStays, Who Vanished 3 Years Before They Were Found Buried in the Desert?

In 2010, a picture-perfect family of four vanished without a trace four months after moving into a new house in the San Diego suburb of Fallbrook, California.

Three years later, in November 2013, a motorcyclist stumbled upon a skull in the Mojave Desert and called investigators who — soon after — uncovered two shallow graves containing the remains of a man, a woman and two little boys.

The missing McStay family had been found.

The mystery of who killed them and why will be the focus of Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates on Investigation Discovery.

The disappearance of Joseph McStay, 40, his 43-year-old wife, Summer, and sons Gianni, 4, and Joseph Jr., 3, was largely treated as a missing-persons case until their bodies were discovered in 2013.

As authorities learned, the foursome, who were last seen alive on Feb. 4, 2010, had all been viciously beaten to

People Magazine Investigates: What Happened to 2-Year-Old DeOrr Kunz, Who Vanished in Idaho Woods?

The campout in a remote patch of the Idaho mountains promised a fun time for 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz, who went on vacation with his parents, grandfather and his grandfather’s friend.

With the assurance that “Grandpa Bob” Walton would keep an eye on him, DeOrr’s mom, Jessica Mitchell, and father, who is also named DeOrr Kunz but also goes by Vernal, walked off from the campsite to go fishing on July 10, 2015 — but when the boy’s dad returned, the son they lovingly called “Little Man” was nowhere to be found.

More than two years later, the enduring mystery of what happened to the still-lost little boy is the focus of tonight’s episode of People Magazine Investigates, which airs at 10 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.

After DeOrr’s parents called 911, law enforcement believed the boy had wandered into the woods surrounding the Timber

Mystery in the Sunshine State asks: What happened to Robert Wiles?

Robert Wiles was enjoying life when he went missing in a puzzling case

This week Mystery in the Sunshine State examines the disappearance and apparent kidnapping of 26-year-old Robert Wiles from the office where he works.

Robert was doing well in life and with his work, where he was the likely heir to the family business. They operated an aircraft service company out of an office in Lakeland, Florida, and all seemed to be going great.

The company, National Flight Service, was based out of Ohio but Robert liked the sun and fishing in Florida so was learning the ropes at their office in the state. There was a little bit of friction between Robert and some of the employees, who felt his lack of experience meant he was not always the best person to make decisions. His

Tonight’s edition of Disappeared on Investigation Discovery tells the story of 19-year-old missing person Katelin Akens, who vanished after making an unplanned stop at a Virginia shopping mall on the way to an airport in December 2015.

The episode, titled Flight Risk, documents how police, upon investigating her loved ones, began to suspect someone close to her wasn’t letting on to all they knew about the disappearance.

Her stepfather was said by the sheriff’s office to have been driving Katelin, from Arizona, to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport when she apparently asked to be dropped off at the Springfield mall, intending to ride the metro the rest of the way to the airport.

Katelin mother, Lisa Sullivan, reportedly received a text message

Barbara Walters Presents American Scandals looks into the heart wrenching case of Kimberly Mays and Arlena Twig, who were switched at birth.

Back in 1978 two baby girls born in the same Florida hospital were given to the wrong parents.

The mistake came to light when Arlena was having a blood test soon after she was born, sadly she died just nine years later of the chronic illness she’d had since birth. Soon after her death the Twigs decided to track down their biological daughter.

Kimberly was
