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


Mary was last seen in Wilber, Nebraska on July 28, 1973. She disappeared with her husband of 52 years, Frank. Neighbors saw the couple come home between 8:00 and 9:00 that evening, just as it was getting dark. They left again a few minutes later, pulled out of their driveway, headed north, then turned east on the first cross street. The Olivas have never been heard from again. Their daughter-in-law, Shirley, came by after she found out they hadn't been seen for a week and their newspapers and milk deliveries had been piling up. The front door was closed but unlocked, nothing appeared to be out of place at their house, and Mary had left behind two bottles of medicine and her black purse, which she always carried with her. Only their beige 1958 Chevrolet 210 with the license plate number 225-910 was missing.
