You Probably Never Realized These Popular Celebrities Mysteriously Vanished

It’s always terrifying when people seem to vanish off the face of the earth. Though the world is full of millions of people, it’s very alarming when adults seem to disappear from their lives, either never to be seen or heard from again or to reappear out of nowhere suddenly. However, these vanishing acts can be even more puzzling when the missing people happen to be well-known public figures.

While some celebrities have resurfaced after a short while, others have disappeared and have never been found. At one point or another, all of these popular celebrities were MIA.

Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor has struggled with severe depression and other mental illnesses. Therefore, it was extremely troubling when O’Connor was reported missing on May 15, 2016. The songstress had gone for a bike ride early that morning in Wilmette, a suburb of Chicago, and never returned.

At the time, the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer was battling for custody of her son Shane and was struggling to get in contact with him. After she vanished on her bike ride, friends and family feared that she had tried to take her own life, which she’d done in the past. Luckily over 24 hours later, O’Connor was found safe.
