In June 2022, after a series of arrests in Hawaii for harassment and assault, actor Ezra Miller was nowhere to be found. The nonbinary actor, known for their roles in Fantastic Beasts and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, posted several cryptic messages to their Instagram stories before deleting their account entirely: 

"You cannot touch me, I am in another universe" 

"Message from another dimension."

"I am shielded from negative people & their ill intent. My spirit, mind, body, soul + success are not altered by anyone's envy. I am protected from all negative [energy] people attempt to throw at me. Subconsciously & consciously. I clear any & all hidden peers who are hidden enemies."

Many assumed Miller was on the run, as they recently had been accused of grooming by the parents of Tokata Iron Eyes, an 18 year old activist whose relationship with Miller began at the age of 12, when Miller was 23. According to the parents, Miller used "violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs" to control Tokata. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court issued an order of protection, but were unable to locate Miller to serve the order. 

Amelia Earhart

Born in 1897 in Atchison, Kansas, Amelia Earhart was a groundbreaking pilot and feminist icon. She set numerous altitude and speed records throughout her career in the aviation world, and was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. In June 1937, Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, set out on a 29,000-mile journey to travel across the globe - a voyage they would never finish. In July, while attempting to locate the remote Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean, contact with Earhart's plane was suddenly lost.

Despite extensive search efforts, no trace of Earhart and Noonan was ever found. One theory is that they crash-landed into the pacific and drowned; another is that they made an emergency landing on the nearby uninhabited island of Nikumaroro, eventually succumbing to the elements. The discovery of various artifacts on the island, such as clothing remnants, has lent credence to this theory, but nothing conclusive has been found.
