1940
•   Eleanor Jarman was a convicted robber, one of the more violent female criminals of her time, who escaped from jail in 1940 and became a fugitive from justice. Although she was placed on the FBI ten most wanted fugitives list, she was not caught. In 1975, in an incident that was not disclosed for years, she secretly visited relatives. She refused to turn herself in or reveal how she had been living. She would now be well over 100, and is presumed to have died under an alias.
 1944
•   Antoine de Saint-Exupιry, French author and aviator. Apparently died when his Lockheed P-38 Lightning crashed off the coast of Marseille. Though the aircraft was recovered in 2003, his body was never found.
•   Glenn Miller — popular American jazz musician and bandleader. Disappeared on December 15, 1944, en route from England to Paris to play for troops in the recently liberated city. Neither his remains nor the aircraft in which he was riding were ever recovered.
•   On 6 August 1944, a ship named the Island Queen vanished completely from Grenada. A second ship, the Providence Mark, which made the same journey on the same night arrived safely with no hint of trouble. Not a trace of the Island Queen or the people on board was ever found.

Many theorists believed that he was kidnapped from his apartment (15F) at 30 Fifth Avenue in the borough of Manhattan at the request of Trujillo, transported secretly back to Santo Domingo and tortured to death. The 2002 film Galindez discusses the investigation of his disappearance.1
