Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case as of May 2020)


Hunt's sister saw her walking down Main Street in Marion, Virginia on January 17, 1985 and they spoke to each other. Hunt was crying and upset because she had to report to jail that day and the police wanted her to inform on her friends, and she did not want to. Later that day, Hunt went to the Club Cafe, a bar on Main Street in Marion. She appeared to be under the influence of drugs at the time. She left with four women in a borrowed car. The women later returned without her. That evening, Hunt's parents tried to find her but could not. She has never been heard from again. She left behind a young child.
Hunt's boyfriend, Roger Dale Dunford, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in her case in 1995. He had an arrest record for marijuana trafficking charges. Authorities believe he may have murdered Hunt by shooting her to death. The jury was unable to reach a verdict in the murder case, however, and Hunt's disappearance remains unsolved. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance due to the circumstances involved.

Since 2006 I have personally worked over 1,000 missing person cases and have literally spent thousands of hours of my own time trying to help find missing people, especially missing children...and always for free.

The cases listed here are from my old site, unfortunately, after I got sick, I lost my site and any backup copies I had, so these are direct links to archive.org's Wayback Machine. In time I will transfer these old cases to my new site. I've had a pretty good track record in helping to locate loved ones, and I'm always willing to help in new cases as well.   To view all my past cases right now please visit https://briansprediction.com/missingold
