Real Name: Daniel Blaszczuk
Aliases: None Known
Wanted For: Theft, Embezzlement
Missing Since: 1988


Details: In the late 1980s, Daniel Blaszczuk was the treasurer of the island of Frenchboro, Maine, when he was accused of embezzling more than $5,000 from the town. He apparently cashed several checks to the town for more than $5,250, and then moved away in 1988 and was never seen again. He is now wanted by the authorities for embezzlement.
Extra Notes: The original airdate of the segment is unrevealed; there are conflicting reports on whether or not this story was actually on Unsolved Mysteries.
Results: Captured. In 2010, twenty years after Blaszczuk vanished, he was found living in Connecticut. He was discovered by a man named Erik Fitch, who worked as an emergency dispatcher and found Blaszczuk's name in the Connecticut DMV. Erik claimed that he remembered the man's name because his father, a former detective, was on Unsolved Mysteries when he was six and that it stuck with him. Blaszczuk pled guilty to theft and gave more than $5,200 back to the town of Frenchboro.
