When the colonist left and arrived at Roanoke. When john white left the colony to get more supplies. The colonist carved the place they were going to.
The colonist went to the island and left one person behind to stay there for whn john white returns but he got killed by the hurricane.
I believe that the colonist didn't make it and got wiped out by the hurricane. They found all their stuff at croatoan island village ones was but got wiped out. Every thought that the Indians killed the colonist but no one knows if its true.
