I-Team: Strange Circumstances Surround Park Disappearances by George Knapp, KLAS-TV Las Vegas

Each year, hundreds of people are reported missing in national parks and forests. Most are eventually found, but there's a smaller category of cases that are never solved, including a few close to home.

The [KLAS-TV] I-Team is investigating a different kind of mystery that involves disappearances which are not caused by predator attacks, criminals, or bad luck.

Former cop David Paulides has put together hundreds of case files regarding clusters of missing persons in national parks where the circumstances are strange.  Paulides found so many cases of missing people that one planned book became two, filled with more than 400 cases of people who went into national parks but never came out.

"We're talking about something different. These are unusual things that don't make sense, that happen to cluster together in three to four, sometimes as many as 20 to 30 people missing at one location," Paulides said.
