5. Scott Smith
Canadian bassist Scott Smith was known for being a member of the rock band Lover Boy when he disappeared.
In November 2000, the band had just given a benefit concert for Juvenile Diabetes Research in Vancouver, Canada, when Smith decided to sail from British Columbia to Mexico on his boat along with his girlfriend and a friend named Bill Ellis.
Ellis later told the police officers that a violent storm came up while at sea, and a 25-foot wave tipped the boat on its side. Smith ended up being thrown into the water; his girlfriend and Ellis searched for him but were unsuccessful. He disappeared without a trace. After several hours of searching, teams were forced to stop due to the weather conditions.
