David Paulides on the new third book ‘Missing 411 North America And Beyond’
What other five countries are we talking about here where people are missing? And are the cases similar as the ones from the American region?
DP: The scope of the missing books deals with a specific profile of missing people that has never been identified or discussed. These cases involve people who have disappeared in rural area and many have the following issues associated with their disappearance: A) Tracking dogs cannot pickup a scent B) People are found missing clothing or shoes C) Once found, the victim cannot remember what happened E) They are located in areas that don’t make sense F) People disappear with their dogs G) The person disappears in the afternoon H) Berries are somehow associated with the disappearance I) When found the person is semi-conscious or unconscious J) The individual is part of a cluster of missing people. K) Water/swamps are associated at some level with the disappearance L) Weather turns bad after the disappearance.
All of the cases in every “Missing-411” are surrounded with many of these elements that are described above. If the case did not meet the profile, it would not be included in the books. The first books dealt with the United States and Canada, this new book has stories of societal beliefs and missing people from Australia, England, France, Iceland and Indonesia.
Has there been any progress in solving these cases or changes to help us understand what the heck is going on since your crusade to help these missing people? I know you have raised awareness which is great indeed but figuring it out and stopping it is the ultimate solution. I see Whitley Strieber left a great blurb on the back which I have to agree with highly.
DP: If we are going to assist in solving cases we first need to understand the phenomena. I believe we are getting closer to deciphering the complexities of these disappearances but are far from a full understanding. This past summer I was invited to be a speaker at the National Association of Search and Rescue Professionals (NASAR) at their annual convention in Lake Tahoe. I presented the findings in the books and the consistencies among the cases; the response from the audience was overwhelming. There were searchers from around the world and many stated that they had experienced much of the phenomena I described, yet felt it had to be such an isolated occurrence that they didn’t put much thought or energy into understanding why it may be occurring. There was a very long line of people that wanted to discuss the book. In short, I think that single presentation in front of the one of the largest search and rescue organizations in the world opened many eyes to what is happening in the field.
