Yet some of the most mysterious disappearances in history have taken place at the beach. One of those disappearances happened in 1966, when three young women climbed onto a small motorboat on Lake Michigan and were never seen again.

The morning began fairly peacefully. Friends Patty Blough, Renee Bruhl and Ann Miller pulled up to the Indiana Dunes in the morning and walked from the parking lot to the park. At approximately noon, a couple saw the three women set their belongings down and enter the lake.

Soon after, the couple say they saw the three women speaking to a man operating a boat. They got on the boat with the man and he headed west. They have never been seen again.

Later it was revealed that two of the women were pregnant and it's possible abortion was the reason for their boat trip. Could something have gone wrong with the abortion? Or were the girls lured onto the boat under false pretenses?
What do you think happened to the Indiana Dunes women?
