Met the author to be kept secrets the cases he found were stranger numerous enough that the man David Polly DS.
Has since written six volumes of work documents in the phenomena the books called the missing for one one series explore what Polly DS calls a mysterious series of worldwide disappearances to find logical and conventional explanations something that makes this topic even stranger is the fact that the National Parks either do not keep a list of missing persons or are refusing to release it it’s almost as if they themselves are acknowledging that something bizarre is happening but don’t want to cause.
A panic making a note of this some years ago Polly DS filed for a Freedom of Information Act request against the National Park Service asked him for a list of missing persons through all the.
National parks in the country he was aware that the Park Service had a federally trained law enforcement branch familiar with the standard protocols of any police agency meaning that they should have records for missing persons within their jurisdiction despite not needing to provide a motive for a Freedom of.
Information request Polly DS was questioned by an attorney for the Park Service as to why he was interested in obtaining.
A missing persons record he was told that he would get the information regardless but that they just wanted to know.
Why birds when he said he was just doing research he was told that no.
Such record existed when he pushed back asking.
Take to obtain such a list he was told that he would need to pay 1.
4 million dollars for a comprehensive national list of $34,000 for your so might alone you might once it gets a hot drink get comfy and come into this with an open mind because this goes to some extremely weird and bizarre places so let’s start with this what exactly is the criteria used to determine.
Or not a missing person case defies a logical explanation David Polly Dee’s has said that his kin are missing.
Team rule out any cases where there is clear evidence of animal predation mental health issues and suicidal intent the person deliberately wanting to walk away from their life and not be found a.

Of the physical spectrum gone missing eg people are physically disabled and cannot walk long distances as well as individuals who live extremely active lives and are very fit if the missing individual.

Wolf feather berries from the palm of its hand and that’s how she survived if the missing individual is found deceased the cause of death is.
Almost never determined often seeming as though they died without a cause at all medical examiner’s usually write they die from exposure if they do not have a.
Better answer to give the missing are found in areas that seem difficult if not impossible to reach by foot or in the time that has elapsed such as a child being found twelve miles away in just a matter of a few hours a common example is children as young as two and three going missing and being found in high elevations such as mountains 2,000 foot.
In the air sometimes the children have their clothes on backwards or inside out and their parents claim that they can’t even dress themselves.
Yet the missing are found in an area.
That’s been searched by the search rescue teams numerous times over a period of days usually a week or longer sometimes they’re even found on the trail that’s used to access the area they’re searching almost as if their place.
They’re intentionally in order to surely be found by the SAR search and rescue teams are meticulous about their searches a lot of cases involve people who go missing for a week but only died a day or two prior to being found which begs the question of where they were during their.
Time missing as well as what’s happened to them the shoes tend to go missing if the just one or both many people are found in bizarre.
Places at high altitudes or in tough terrain and their socks are the soles of their feet don’t have a speck of dirt or wear on them this is true for children too search-and-rescue dogs will be unable.
To pick up a sense or if they do they’ll follow us a few feet and then begin acting bizarrely they’ll circle.
And then sit down this is not common behavior for search-and-rescue canines investigators do not find any tracks nine times out of ten and if they do they seem to stop inexplicably and lead nowhere as if the person just vanished into thin air animal attacks are ruled out by experts one completely bizarre thing about these cases is that many of them are extremely similar you’ll have a situation where a child goes missing right.
Under the parents noses I’m talking one second are there they’re talking they’re having fun they’ll be out of line of sight for a few moments and that’s it they’re gone they quite literally seem to.
Have disappeared into thin air an anonymous user on Quora has compelled some of David’s research via his books and.
Lectures the following are some of the bizarre cases and I quote in cases I know of stories told by people who go missing and I’ve found are not what you would expect these stories may.
Challenge your understanding of reality be warned I included names it is important that we are respectful and polite of people who go missing and are returned and do not try to contact them so that they can live normal lives they can come forward with their story if they want to this first account may seem silly at first.
But that may change as we continue I’ve added it to demonstrate just how long these encounters have been going on for in 1868 a three year old girl disappeared from her father’s lumber camp in northern Michigan after enlisting the help of a.
Professional hunters who happened on the historical search scene by chance the men trace the little girls feeble cries to a dense stand of brush when the men advanced on the thicket they saw what they said to look like a giant bird best from it and run across the river heading.

In Montana on July 4 after a search by 350 backwoodsman in heavy rain Ida was found drying safe in a crudely built shelter across a river just 300 yards away from where she was taken I do it later relate to the best of a two-year-olds ability being cuddled and comforted by the bear during the time she was missing the sheriff became so.
Angry that she actually paid the courtesies three separate visits demanding that they stop telling their story of a bear abducting and caring for their little girl he told.

Were other robots too but they didn’t move she made me lay down so look at my tummy when she tried to get me to poop on a sticky paper but I couldn’t go she told me that I’m from outer space and they put me my mom’s.
To me then she took me back to the river and said to wait under the bush until someone found me she also states that her grandson said she had your same hair.
Your feet and even your face that scared her deeply the idea that some kind of doppelganger taking on her own image to abduct her grandson she says that she got the impression that said grandson may have been talking about a hologram because of the way he described the lights sparkling on the strange woman his grandmother was horrified and called her son the boy’s father who told her that she had also had the same story from.
The boy a few days ago she admitted that she would have probably written off their grunts and story to a child’s overactive imagination if it wasn’t for the strange experience that happens her a year ago when she was camping in the same area near Fowler’s campground in McLeod California she claims she woke up one morning facedown in the dirt having been removed from a tent.
