Likely the most famous unsolved mystery on this list, the story of Amelia Earhart is nothing short of an American legend that has captured the imagination for generations.

On July 2, 1937, Amelia Earhart — who at the time was one of the most famous women in the country for her achievements in aviation — disappeared over the Pacific Ocean during an attempt to fly the circumference of the earth.

While many believe her disappearance to be easy explained by the dangerous nature of her flight — such as the possibility that the plane simply ran our of fuel — a lack of concrete evidence has left the reason for her disappearance up to the imagination.

How about "Where's Jimmy Hoffa"??

@ California Steve:

The Hoffa story isn't so much a mystery, seeing that an entire group of mob affiliated men knows exactly where Jimmy Hoffa is (or was). His feet are encased in cement at the bottom of some fairly deep water. The rest of him became fish food decades ago.
Sadly, over the last century, many dozens of mob-affiliated victims have shared a similar fate.

Where did I put the car keys?

I would also include the mystery of the Mary Celeste, a ship abandoned for unknown reasons in the 1800s near the Azores. There are new theories, but there still is no sure conclusion.

I'm a bit surprised they left out Flight 19 in which five Navy planes vanished on a training flight in World War II. Spielberg made use of the unsolved mystery in his sci-fi classic film Close Encounters showing the abandoned planes discovered out in the desert.

The mystery of the noise from space is exactly that.

A brief, unidentified background noise which happens every
second of every day of every year.

Nothing here, folks.

Who let the Dogs out? There was even a song about it.
