It's purely local but the Beaumont children's disappearance is one of THE great Australian mysteries.

G'day Rosella

A couple of years ago there was a claim that one of them [the boy I think] had been found, but nothing came of that.

Everytime I visit Glenelg I think of the poor family.

Initial response is superb. Thanks for showing this was a potential Comstock Lode of questions.

I'll be back with some more.
Had to include the man who helped found Quantas. I mentioned another Australian mystery man on the other thread: Harold Lassiter, who died presumably still seeking the biggest gold reef in the world outside of Johannesburg.

There was an interesting book about the Le Prince disappearance - THE MISSING REEL - which does look a bit at Thomas Edison as a possible suspect, but says there is no smoking gun.

Le Prince (for those who don't recall him) was one of the fathers of modern cinema cameras.

Another inventor - genius who vanished (suicide/accident/murder?) was the creator of the Diesel Engine, Rudolf Diesel, who vanished when on a cross-channel steamer in 1913 headed for England (possibly to offer his revolutionary engine to the British Navy, thus making him a target for Wilhelmine agents).

Some students on disappearances point out the Lang story sounds similar to a short account written by Ambrose Bierce about the disappearance of a man named Williamson in Kentucky in 1854 (Lang vanished in Tennessee) and also the disappearance of a boy named Oliver Larch, who vanished one night going to a well.
