Current Missing College Students

This list is compiled from Google alerts for "Student Disappearance" and "Missing Student."

If you set  your own Google alert, keep the wording simple, and short.

You will find cases from around the world.

A very few of them will have enough information to show they are a Subliminal Distraction episode.


Of course some of them will be found to have been crime or accident victims.

A large number are found disappearance suicides, often with no warning or history of depression.

A small number are never found.

Brian Shaffer, Maura Murray, Michael  Negrete, Justin Gains are examples.

But a very small number recover and return in altered mental states.

That last group holds the clue for what is happening.

Dakota James

Disappeared in January


Dakota James Textiing

James vanished while walking home over a familiar path he had taken many times before.

His family has disputed the coroner's evaluation that he died by accidental drowning.

There are other cases where the student vanished while crossing a bridge,

although there had been no history of depression or mental illness. 

In several cases the student is known, or seen on video to have been alone.

In this case James can be seen on video texting on his phone, walking alone.

His body was found down stream by a woman walking her dog.

If he was able to text while walking he could not have been intoxicated enough to accidentally get in the river.


Although it has been 4 months friends, or roommates could supply information about his study or computer use habits.

Cited as Gay, he might have associates who were in his rooms to tell where his computer was located.





Noor "Nora" Alzaybak

High school freshman

The latest report on Monday May 29th  is that she has been found and will travel back to Alabama.

She came home on Thursday afternoon, but vanished few hours later.

The information that would qualify this disappearance as a Subliminal Distraction episode is missing.

Noor "Nora" Alzaybak


"She came to my room and took her glasses," Sharazad Alzaybak said at Sunday's press conference.

"She seemed normal. Like 15 minutes later, my husband came home, and she's missing."

One report states her phone is going to voice mail.

Early reports do not mention any distress as the cause of her disappearance.

That sudden disappearance is the only clue that might qualify this case as a Subliminal Distraction disappearance.

Sometimes parents withhold information because of embarrassment, or fear of group disparagement.

The first thought would normally be that someone picked her up by her arrangement.
