Location: Los Angeles, California
Date: June 8, 1988
Details: Twenty-two-year-old Matthew Chase vanished shortly after using an ATM in Los Angeles, California. A close up analysis of the ATM footage which Matthew used shows the face of someone, possibly his killer hovering over him. This person has not been identified. Police believe that Chase may have been signaling for help by asking for withdrawals that exceeded the limit for the day. On June 27, three weeks later, Matt's car was found and several witnesses claim to have met with Matt at homeless shelters shortly afterwards, leaving his parents and friends to hope that he is still alive.
Suspects: No suspects have been named in this case. Although a bandana found in Matthew's abandoned car suggests he may have fallen victim to gang members. Two composites have been made of the abductor.

Results: Unresolved. Three months after Matthew's disappearance, his body was found shot to death in a ravine near Pasadena, California. His killer has not been caught and the case remains unsolved.
