Case

Details: Lt. Ernest Cody and Ensign Charles Adams were on routine manuvers on their L-8 Blimp near the Farallon Islands when they vanished on August 16, 1942. Their blimp was soon noticed by several planes, ships and crafts in the area drifting in shore and finally crashing to Earth on a street in Daly City near San Francisco. Her helium bag was leaking, but the two men on board were missing and no one saw them drop from the craft. The blimp was soon named the "Ghost Blimp" because of how the men vanished without any explanation. Decades later, the blimp was sold and repaired to be used as a Goodyear Blimp. Although several theories have been brought up to explain what to the two men, to this day their case remains shrouded in mystery.

Suspects: Several possible explanations have been brought up to suggest what may have happened to the men, including the men being captured by an enemy Japanese sub, to being taken by aliens or to the most probable explanation of the two men fell off the blimp accidentally.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the May 19, 1993 episode.
