Mother Still Pushing for Answers in the Disappearance of Son
Charles “KJ” Horvath Allan was born in Canada in 1968 but moved to the United Kingdom. He lived in Yorkshire, England and in 1989, he went on a solo cross country trip through Canada. He was expected to meet up with his mother at a future date in Hong Kong to celebrate her 40th birthday and his 21st.
Sometime during the summer of 1989 in British Columbia, Charles vanished without a trace. Horvath had only been in town for a week before he disappeared. During his short stay, he worked at the (former) Flinstones Amusement Park and stayed at a Tent City Campsite/RV Park. The last time he was seen alive was at the Jonathan Seagulls nightclub with an unidentified male in his fifties. There has been no trace of the six foot tall, 168
to 175 pounds, 20 year old. His personal belongings including his tent were left behind. He is described as having brown hair, brown eyes and having an olive skin complexion. He has been known to wear a mustache and beard in the past. Charles did have some features which made it easier to recognize. He had a scar on the left side of his head and a dental plate in his mouth. He also had a tattoo of a skull with a mohawk on his upper left arm.
His last known contact with his mother was in March of 1989 via a letter through fax. He was reported missing by his mother on August 10th, months later.
It is possible that Charles could have fallen victim to foul play. It is possible that some of the people at the campsite may have known what became of him. His mother at this point wants to bring his remains home. For additional information, please visit https://twitter.com/search4charles .

Niagara Falls is famous for the large water falls that straddle the New York, United States and Ontario, Canada borders. People from all over the globe visit to get a glimpse of the most famous water cascades in the world. However, Niagara Falls has a sad distinction as well. It is a common place for people to commit suicide. Every year for the last few decades, between 20 to 40 people a year take their lives by jumping into the top of the Falls. Over the years, many of the bodies have never been identified and some who have gone over the falls have never even had their remains recovered.
One of the most unusual cases of these suicides involve an unidentified woman who jumped into the Horseshoe Falls on February 17, 1975. The woman was seen wearing a long overcoat that may have been grey colored. She was also seen holding a green umbrella. Authorities believe they recovered her remains but are not one hundred percent certain. On June 1, 1975, the remains of an older adult female was found on the west bank of the Niagara River, in the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake which is north of Niagara Falls in Canada. The deceased is believed to 40 years or older. She was short in height and had a heavy-set build The unidentified female had brown hair and an autopsy of her body revealed a lung disease and bad arthritis of her lumbar spine. There was also a scar on her right hip and she had at one time an Appendectomy.
She wore black zippered boots and wore a Gold, 14 karat Ring that was thin and had the initials “H.W” It is likely that the woman was not from the local US/Canada area and may have been from another country such as Australia or from Europe.

What Happened to Canada’s Lost Boys?
It is perhaps one of North America’s biggest missing person cases. Six teenagers from Pickering, Ontario vanished on the evening of March 17th, 1995. 17 year olds Robbie Rumboldt, Michael Cummins, Jamie Lefebvre Jay Boyle along with 18 year old Chad Smith left a party that night and then picked up Danny Higgins who was sixteen years old. The boys were last seen heading to the beach “to goof around” according to friends. It is believed that the boys may have stolen two boats and went into the cold water possibly without lifejackets. Some of the boy had been seen on surveillance video entering a marina which was the last documentation of them. The boys were believed to have drowned after possibly capsizing or having the boats take on water. They have never been found nor the boat recovered. More than 25 years later it is believed that the answer lies on the bottom of Lake Ontario.
