In the spring of 2014, two young women from the Netherlands decided to take a long vacation of more than a month that included a stop in Panama. The two women were Lisanne Froon, who was 22 years old, and Kris Kremers, 21 years old. The two lived together in a dormitory at the University of Utrecht when they went on their journey, saving up a lot of money in hopes of learning Spanish while in Panama and volunteering with children.Advertisements:

Two weeks into their vacation, Kremers and Froon arrived in the town of Boquete where they would temporarily live with a family. On April 1, 2014, the two posted on social media that they would be walking around the city and were spotted eating with two men from the Netherlands that were around the same age as they were. It would be the last time that they were seen though, unfortunately, as they didn’t return to their temporary home.

The dog that the two young women had been with returned to the host home, but they were nowhere to be seen. They were no longer returning calls or text messages, and a search party was started in hopes of finding them. Even the parents of the two women would make their way to Panama hoping for some good news. A reward was also issued for several thousand dollars, but nobody could find them.

It seemed that all hope was lost for weeks, until more than two months later, Froon’s backpack was found with her passport inside. The backpack seemed to be in good condition, suggesting that it might have possibly been there for just a short period of time. It gave some hope that the women might still be alive as the woman that found the backpack said that it wasn’t there the previous day.

Another clue in the investigation was the fact that the cell phones of Kremers and Froon were found in the backpack. Investigators were able to turn on the phones to see that the women had tried to call emergency services, but couldn’t connect due to poor service coverage. All in all, they attempted to reach emergency operators more than 70 times until the phones were turned off for good 10 days after they had first attempted to call 911.

Also on the phones were photos that might have given some clue as to what was happening at the time of their disappearance. This includes the above photo, which suggested that they were taken into the jungle and were trying to send the photos to give clues about where they were. One of the photos also included what looked to be an injured Kremers, as she was bleeding from her head.

After discovering the backpack, investigators continued to search in the area where the backpack was found. The search party then focused on the area where they made a grim discovery. Other clothing items from Kremers and Froon had been found, and it led to the finding of bones that had been scattered near the river where the backpack was found. It seemed that the bones had been bleached, and DNA tests confirmed the fears that it was indeed Kremers and Froon.

The unexplained disappearance has been one of the most talked about in recent memory, as everyone is still left with more questions than answers about the disappearance of Kris Kremers and Lisanne Froon. There were nearly 100 photos that were taken on the cell phones in the span of just a few hours, and investigators said that some of them were hard to look at as they contained disturbing content.

Police are still trying to determine what happened in early April of 2014, with some people taking on their own investigation as to what happened. Many people have theories, that include the two girls simply getting lost in the jungle and starving before they could be found and that it was animals that left the bones scattered around the river. Some hypothesize that they were kidnapped and murdered intentionally, but nobody knows the exact answer of why Kremers and Froon never made it out of the jungle.

The weather had been quite rough when the two girls were in the jungle, which leads some to believe it was simply the elements that took their lives. Even after DNA testing, a cause of death was still not determined. One member of the search party said that normally when people travel to where Kremers and Froon had gone, they come straight back down through the town of Boquete, but this time they did not.

“We don’t know why (they) didn’t come back down,” the search party member said. “When something like this happens in a small town, the people of that pueblo feel responsible. We want this to be a safe place for tourists…All we want is to know the truth so we know who – or what – to blame for their deaths.”
