    These two disappeared in Vilnius, Republic of Lithuania, both on May 12th, 1997. Not much is said about their disappearances or how- except that one went into a yard and wasn't seen again

    My memory of this is hazy, but I seem to recall talk of small Eastern European children being abducted for black-market adoption in the West around this time. However, at 12 and 14, Andrej and Rimas would be far too old for that even if such an adoption ring existed.

    I was thinking that one of the only ways they could have disappeared this way is if they were abducted by the same person or by someone who worked with the abductor. They could have ended up the same way as Johnny Gosch

    Could be, or they could be runaways as well. There isn't much info to go on. Rampant criminality in former USSR countries was even worse during the 1990's than it is now, a lot bad things could happen to a child without police giving it much attention.

    Did these two boys disappear together or separately? It sort of reminds me of the disappearances of two other boys, Clifford Sherwood and Georges Gumbley of Verdun, Quebec in 1954. They were together when they disappeared. The theory is Cliffords' father abducted them, but nobody really knows. Very weird story.

    I have seen that story on Unsolved Mysteries, truly baffling.

    As for the Lithuanian boys, it doesn't appear as if they were together when they vanished.

    I don't see how these two MP's couldn't be related. Two boys, one 12 and the other 14, went missing from the same town on the same day.
