Details: On June 8, 1987, eighteen-year-old Michael Adams returned home after leaving work at a local grocery store in Abilene, Texas. He was last seen by his sister at around 11:30PM, when she saw him standing next to a car that was idling outside of their home; he was leaning into the car, talking to the occupants.
The next morning, he was discovered missing and his bed didn't appear to be slept in. He was never heard from again. His wallet was in his room, and his car was parked strangely in the driveway. Several of his friends were questioned and were given polygraphs; all passed and were cleared as suspects. His disappearance remains unsolved.
Suspects: The unidentified vehicle that Michael was seen with the night he vanished was a dark-colored, two-door vehicle with opera windows in the back and a possible malfunctioning headlight. It was possibly a 1973-1978 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Oldsmobile Cutlass or Oldsmobile Toronado.
Extra Notes: The case has appeared on the show Missing: Reward. His family requested that his story be shown on Unsolved Mysteries, but it was denied.
Results: Unsolved. In 1994, he was declared legally dead, but no one has ever been arrested in the case. Sadly, Michael's mother Barbara passed away in 2016. His step brother Perry passed away in 2011, aged thirty-seven.
