There was once a story of disenchanting

Living with the misfortune of the disappearance of someone close to us is too great a burden to bear. The uncertainty of what has happened, the life put on standby, always waiting for the day when some news will arrive about the person who from nothing has stopped being part of our daily world. It is difficult to live with this pain, it is difficult to learn to smile again and it is completely impossible to forget what happened.
However, incredible as it may seem, there are unusual cases related to disappearances in which people simply decide to disappear and give up the life they had without thinking about its consequences or the pain they can cause to those left behind. One of these cases occurred in the United States, in 1970.

A single mother left home and never returned, leaving her 15-year-old daughter after a family argument. In 1996 buried human remains were discovered and although they failed to do the DNA tests, the police determined that they were those of the missing woman. For 13 years the mystery would be closed case but in 2009, with the use of more advanced techniques of DNA analysis, it was concluded that the remains belonged to another individual. With this outcome, it was decided to reopen the investigations in search of the missing woman. Forty years after his disappearance, the police claim to have found her, with 84 years and a new family (she had had 14 children) although it is not clear what she has done during the last decades or the reasons to disappear suddenly.

         In these cases and many more must be clear that not everything is what it seems.
