Unsolved Appalachia is a website dedicated to detailing missing and unidentified persons as well as unsolved murders of the Appalachian region of the United States. My interest in this particular niche began when I was around 10 years old. First, a murder happened at a small convenience store in my hometown and the very next night a man went missing. There was no connection between these events, and the man who went missing has still never been found. However, the murder was solved and the guilty party was arrested and imprisoned.

I remember when the trial for the murder was beginning, we were studying the judicial system in school and in small town America, it seemed like a good, first-hand educational opportunity to let a bunch of 10-11 year olds sit in on the first day of the hearing. 

At the time, I was already hooked on Robert Stack (Unsolved Mysteries of course) so that, of course only helped to emblazon my curiosity. 

Years would march on, and I would always find room to indulge my fascination with the macabre, whether it be through television shows, articles...more years and we were on to the Unresolved Mysteries Reddit forum, and YouTube is always a good source of videos regarding the missing, murdered, and unidentified. 

I discovered the Charley Project and NamUs, the Doe Network. I saw that on many of these websites, states could be singled out so that you could view results only in that particular area. I saw that there were so many around me that I'd never even heard of. People who had vanished and been forgotten.

I couldn't let that happen. I knew I had absolutely no authority, but I also knew that I had the desire to do SOMETHING. So I started to write...

Ten people who believe enough to help promote and bring growth to the site! I want to be able to have a subscription to the newspaper.com service so that I can access archives of old newspaper stories.
