Details: District Attorney Ray Gricar vanished on April 15, 2005, after calling his girlfriend while driving through Brush Valley in Pennsylvania. Twelve hours later, she reported him missing. Gricar's car was discovered the next day in an antique store parking lot near a river. Three months later, Ray's missing laptop computer was discovered in the Susquehanna River near where his car was found. The hard drive from the laptop computer was found two months later along the banks of the river. No evidence has ever been found to determine what has happened to Ray and his case remains unsolved.
Suspects: None known
Extra Notes: The case has appeared on the show Haunting Evidence and the Investigation Discovery show, Disappeared. Ray himself has briefly appeared in an episode of the The FBI Files.
Results: Unsolved. In July 2011, Ray was declared legally dead, but he has never been found. The day after he was legally declared dead, a man refusing to give his name was arrested in Utah. The man looked very similar to Gricar but was determined not to be the missing man after comparing fingerprints of the two men. In November 2011, his case was brought back into the spotlight due to a recent child sexual abuse scandal at Penn State University against Jerry Sandusky.
