One of the most important cases of disappearance in the world is that of Madeleine, but it is not the only one we come across if we investigate a little. There are many other relevant disappearances that, to this day, remain unresolved. However, few match the strange story of two Dutch friends who went to spend a few months in Panama on vacation.
It all started on April 1, 2014. Two girls from Panama, Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon went out for a walk with the family dog without knowing that it would be the last time their host family would see them.
Both were Dutch students and they had spent six months planning their getaway to the American continent. They wanted to do nature routes, volunteering in local villages with children, giving art classes, learning Spanish … but their trip was not as wonderful as they thought.
One of them wrote the day before the disappearance they intended to meet the surroundings of the forest and that had been with two boys for breakfast. It was not until that night when the host family realized that something was happening: the dog had returned, but the girls had not.
The next morning, they went to the authorities to find out where they were . An aerial search was carried out throughout the area, but nothing relevant was found.
A few days later, the girls were still missing so the families of both of them flew to Panama with a group of detectives in order to find out the truth When everyone was about to give up, a woman found a backpack in the river with two bras, some sunglasses, money, girls' phones and Froon's passport.
The police investigated the mobiles and their cameras. They discovered that during the four days after the disappearance the girls tried to contact the police about 77 times. Using the geolocation of the mobiles they were able to find out the area they had been in during those days.
Because they were in the wild, they did not have enough coverage for their calls to be successful. In the cameras they discovered photographs of the belongings of the girls lying on the ground, Kremer with blood on their heads, plastic bags …
The entire area was traced and they managed to find Kremer's clothes on the riverbank. Two months later, the police found a pelvic bone and a foot inside a boot. Shortly after the bones of both were discovered.
The remains of Froon seemed to have broken down naturally, but Kremer's seemed having passed through bleach. The police have interrogated more than half the people and their visitors, but the case has never been resolved.
One of the many cases that remain unresolved in the world. We hope that over time, we will find out what happened.
Share the story of these girls with all your friends!
