The Lost People are people who periodically go missing and don't return phone calls, text messages etc. Often times TLP's will turn up and blame the lack of communication on a non-offending party or the person trying to restore contact. A true TLP never reveals where he goes during a lost spell.
Bugs: Yo Strick where is Champ at? he hasn't answered my texts all week.
Stricker: Don't worry about him he'll turn up the day we go to the ball game. He's one of The Lost People.
