11 unsolved disappearances in Siskiyou County – including some you have never heard of​

With a landmass three times that of Connecticut, it's no surprise that some missing person cases in Siskiyou County go unsolved.

Here's a list of 11 people who went missing from Siskiyou County and were never seen again, from past and present.

"We do have a 'cold case' team now," said Siskiyou County Sheriff Jeremiah LaRue. "It is a fairly new team but we are excited it will specifically address these types of cases."

Hannah Zaccaglini

Fifteen-year-old Hannah Zaccaglini was last seen walking to her McCloud home from a nearby friend's house on the evening of June 4, 1997. She never arrived and was never seen again. The majority of Zaccaglini's personal belongings were left at home, including her clothing, purse, money, hairbrush, overnight bag, and bass guitar. Although a father and son were arrested in connection with her murder in December of 2012, charges were later dropped for lack of evidence. Zaccaglini's case remains unsolved.
