Missing Celebrities Whose Disappearances Remain a Mystery
As a child actor Joe Pichler may have been known to many of us, having starred in two Beethoven films. But in 2006, at the age of 18, Pickler disappeared without a trace.
The last time Pichler had contact with anyone was just after 4 a.m. on January 5, when he called a friend. According to the friend, Pichler had been drinking and was "inconsolable" during the call. Before hanging up, Pickler told his friend that he would call him back in an hour or so - but the call never came, and no one has heard from him since. Police suspect he committed suicide - but his family remains convinced foul play was involved.
