Legal In October 2006, Hans Reiser, creator of the ReiserFS filesystem, was arrested under the suspicion of the murder of his wife, Nina, who had disappeared off the face of the earth after dropping their two children off at Hans' home. The two were divorced, and fighting a legal battle over ownership of the Namesys company and the custody of their children. Even though the body was never found, he has been declared guilty of first degree murder.

I think the idea of is wife disappearing in Russia ridiculous. It's a kind of phantasy that we deal with the dark and secret Russia behind the iron curtain and no western citizen can gain access to that country. In a case like this and mass media around everywhere it would be difficult for her to hide without a vid being posted on youtube.

It depends on Nina's connections in Russia. If she were from a poor village, it would be easy to hide away. Some Russian villages are incredibly remote and insular, and won't have electricity or welcome outside visitors, tracking down a 'native' who doesn't want to be found in that sort of social environment would be practically impossible.

Yep. But PI will obviously start from her family, from asking the neighbours.
If Nina is alive and going to live till her death in some Huevo-Tutuevo without ever seeing her kids and parents - well, she's as well as dead.
If not - too many links. People usually go missing all alone...
