On July 22, 2016, 25-year-old paramedic, Eric Pracht and his fiance had a small get together at their condo in Lakewood, Colorado. As the party was winding down and most of the guests had left, a disagreement between the pair and two people close to them, turned into more of an argument. According to those present, Eric took a walk to cool off. They waited for him to come back but Eric never returned. Despite extensive searches, no trace of Eric has ever been found. Eric’s disappearance is a baffling mystery with bizarre clues but they just haven’t found enough pieces of the puzzle to solve it.
