For the second consecutive year, The Ghost Diaries attended this year’s Contact in the Desert UFO festival, where Missing 411 author David Paulides’ presented new research concerning stories of disappearances from our country’s national parks. There have been thousands documented cases from the last few decades and David has conducted meticulous studies on many of them.
The details of these cases deserve to be absorbed in their full granularity, but as a teaser, we will first introduce David as a 20-year veteran of the San Jose police department, who has spent years filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and conducting hundreds of interviews with private police officers and special agents, who are stunned at some of the tragic mysteries accumulating in our national parks.
He reports 58 geographical clusters of missing people in North America (including Yosemite, the Sierras, Colorado, the Appalachian trail, and the Great Lakes. Many people disappear when alone…while picking berries (huckleberries). Those found alive can’t remember what happened or why they disappeared. Seasoned investigators find bodies found in areas previously searched, sometimes 50 times over — suddenly a body is laying out in the middle of the trail.
David Paulides has vetted out the cases of mental illness and animal predation. We are left with almost unfathomable instances of people disappearing without a trace…sometimes reappearing in the most improbable (and impossible) of locations, such as at the peak of a cliff that professional climbers have difficulty reaching).
Author and researcher Richard Dolan has described the phenomenon as exposing an overarching intelligence experimenting on humans in federally owned lands. We don’t understand the motive or the means.
