Readers may want to familarise themselves with the legend (or fable) of David Lang.
Possibly fiction I agree.
However what about Orion Williamson? Remarkably similar in detail:
In an attempt to acquaint myself with the phenomena I am part way into David Paulides book Missing 411. The book focusses on people going missing in National Parks in the North West US. His other book deals more with the Eastern US cases.
Several curiosities interest me:
Sometimes people are never found; other times only some of their bones. More curious still is that when bones are found clothes are found nearby. Not shredded; torn or blood stained. The idea of a predator attack is not feasible. No entrails or blood.
Cases such as Robert Winters (78 years old Missing in 1969 Oregon while hunting) and Charles McCullar (19 years old missing 1976 Oregon) fit the above profile. In the latter case his trousers were found not laid out but as though he had just stepped out of them, and one of his tibia bones was still in the trousers. Inside his socks were foot bones. Bizarre! What happened to these people?
Often toddlers as young as two are found alive miles away up and over mountains. Would a two year old toddler be capable of that? Usually this is in cold temperatures in difficult terrain.
Children disappear in these areas when the parents have taken their eyes off them for only a minutes or even seconds. As if someone or something is watching for the opportunity.
If these people are being abducted, how come the abductors get away so quickly? There are no vehicular routes near to these disappearances. Often parents give chase only minutes later, and fail to find a thing. Tracker dogs have proved to be of little help in these disappearances and seen to get disorientated. All of this needs consideration.
Finally have a look at this:
The Missing Norfolk Regiment? Missing Eskimo Tribes? All folklore or is there any truth in all of these things?
Do you know of any similar fascinating cases?
