A tragic fire in the Sodder family home in 1945 lead to one of the strangest disappearances in American history. Five children, from the ages of 5-14, vanished from their home in Fayetteville, West Virginia, and were never seen again. The father did everything to save his children from the smoldering upper floor, but found his ladder missing, his trucks suddenly not working, and no one in the entire town could get a hold of the operator to call the fire department.  

Even stranger, no remains of the five dead children were ever found on the property. And in fact, there were sightings of them for years, though the sightings never culminated in anything concrete. Police and private investigations turned up nothing, only for Jennie Sodder to be sent a picture of a young man over 20 years after the fire. The picture was labeled Louis Sodder, and he had the same features as her missing son Louis. The envelope was postmarked Kentucky but had no return address. The private investigator the Sodders sent to Kentucky was never seen again. Both parents died without ever finding out what had happened to their children.
