Notes
Angela was at the Monte Faito recreation area with her family during a church picnic. Her father was speaking with her and turned around to ask her mother a question. By the time he turned back around, only moments had passed but Angela was nowhere to be found. She was last seen accompanied by a young boy Renato (11) walking towards the parking lot. According to Renato, he left her at a fork in the path and went ahead to his car to leave his ball. When he returned, Angela was gone. Police and volunteer searched, but no trace of the child was found. On August 19th, nine days later, her family received a mysterious phone call. No one spoke and the only sound was a child wailing in the background. The origins of that call remain unknown. In 2004, the FBI (in cooperation with the Italian Police) reported that they believed Angela died accidentally on the mountain and was hidden by a person in the area at the time. They raided the suspect’s home and found a memorial to Angela and a hat that was reportedly identical to the one she was wearing that night. Unfortunately, the evidence was insufficient to press for a further investigation and her case was later closed. Other rumors have placed Angela in Rome (with a man on a bus who called her Angelita), Germany, Bulgaria (under the name Anna) - allegedly disproved, and South America.
