On a chilly afternoon in February 2004, Maura Murray made a decision that would forever change her life: the 21 year old left her Umass Amherst college campus, drove her barely-running car to the mountains of New Hampshire…. and disappeared into thin air. After her car swerved and crashed while taking a turn on an icy, desolate backroad, neighbors in surrounding country homes saw Maura exit her car around 7:20pm. One witness even briefly spoke with her. Several people watched Maura out of their windows while calling police, letting them know a young woman had just been in an accident. But then, the bizarre happened. Police arrived to the scene….but there was no Maura. From the time the last neighbor peered out through their curtains to check on Maura and the police arrived (a period estimated to be around 60 seconds), something happened to Maura Murray. She was gone, without a trace. To this day there has not been a single lead or piece of evidence that indicates what might have happened, or where Maura could be. How is it possible that a young woman is able to disappear on a low-traffic street in a tiny New Hampshire town right in front of people, without anyone seeing a thing?
