Got any theories about what's happening in national parks/forests where numerous people - sometimes during the same span of time - just up and go missing entirely, as if they were wiped off the face of the Earth? Missing 411 is a good series of books concerning these events and the occurrences surrounding them. Finding bones of the deceased miles from eachother, full search parties being conducted in an orderly fashion and not finding the person until a day or two after in a location which was already searched, mysteriously convenient storms happening during the search or soon after, etc etc
I find it unlikely that all the people who went missing actually ended up dying in the forest/park they were lost in, considering how the bodies were almost never found. A part of me thinks it's some human trafficking ring that picks up lost people in forests and scurries them off in their cars where they will then be taken to whatever facilities they have.
Is there any possibility it's something supernatural? Maneating holes a la the Sarlaak from Star Wars spotting the forest floors? Skinwalkers?
I also heard about the trafficking rings. Specifically, about the kids that disappear from hiking trails being dragged off to your usual pedophile cults or whatnot. Or some kind of "apex predator" serial killer who specifically goes after humans because killing animals no longer does the trick for him.
Still, I would not underestimate the ability of the forest to swallow up people without any supernatural means. You'd think this would be next to impossible in a day where you have at least one GPS satellite hovering over your ass at any given point in time, but it's one thing to wander through a forest in a TV documentary or a freaking video game, and another thing entirely to find your way back to the trail once you've gotten seriously lost and start wandering in circles.
So ultimately, it boils down to modern man having lost his healthy respect for actual, deep forests. Places our ancestors generally portrayed as dark and dangerous for good reason.
Here's a link to the NPS Cold Case database:
The list of people cycles irregularly (with the closing of cases with bodies found, NOT explained) and you can look through wayback to find descriptions of more cases. It might be worth the time to pin a google map with the locations each person vanished, to see if there's any pattern, shape, or places that have an unusually high incidence of vanishings.
A very recent high-profile case internationally was the disappearance and death of Richard Morris, a British diplomat, whose dead body appeared in a distant forest after vanishing on a run. One might cynically expect a murder, battery, or signs of animal attack, but in fact his apparent relocation and death came with no immediate cause or signs of struggle- in fact, police basically consider the death "unsuspicious," despite the facts that:
>They missed him on the first search, which included where he allegedly died.
>He left the trail, and the reason he left the trail at all is unknown.
>He had no history of cardiovascular disease and was an accomplished runner, so the usual causes of such spontaneous death are suspect.
Explicitly paranormal causes aside, it definitely feels like some MIB shit.
>A part of me thinks it's some human trafficking ring that picks up lost people in forests and scurries them off in their cars where they will then be taken to whatever facilities they have.
Good read, anymore on this?
Not the other anon, but here something I found about a month ago.
While I don't doubt China does some pretty ugly things to people, I do doubt they would go as far as to mass-import Americans into their country when they have more than enough people of their own to harvest. Not counting
specialized fields such as sex slavery, where the fat old men may want a Caucasian blonde every once in a while.
If people are abducted in US national parks are abducted to pleasure a however vaguely defined "elite", I'd rather expect it to be for domestic consumption. Up to, and including cannibalism. Not because they believe in that Chinese traditional medicine baby pill hoodoo, but simply because they're getting off to doing things the average Joe is not allowed to.
