Unsolved | Alexandra Anaya & Andrew Gosden

Oct 06, 2022, 04:00 AM

Often when a teenager goes missing, it’s assumed that they ran away.  According to a 2002 study, between 1.6 and 2.8 million teens run away each year.

In this episode of the True Crime Society Podcast we discuss two different cases where it was assumed that teens had left of their own accord, only to find out that wasn’t the case.

Alexandra Anaya (13) disappeared from her Indiana home in the early morning hours of August 13, 2005.  Police did not take her disappearance seriously to start and they assumed she would return quickly.  Alex’s dismembered torso was found in a river days later.  Her head and other body parts have never been found and no arrests have been made in this case.

Andrew Gosden was 14 when he left his home in England in 2007.  He pretended that he was getting ready for school, but after everyone had left the home, he went back and changed into casual clothes and took a train to London. In 2021, two older men were arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and human trafficking in Andrew’s case.  He remains missing.
