Unexplained Disappearances

Is it true or not? Some unexplained disappearances in history make one think if there is indeed another dimension that people are swept into and are never to be seen from again.

Many stories are true. There are people disappearing every day and they are never found or heard from again. They do not fall prey to foul play. They just disappear off the radar. What happens to these people? Is there a strange porthole that people enter into and cannot find their way back?

One strange disappearance from 1930 is when an entire Eskimo Village with a population of two thousand people disappeared. A trapper returned to the village to find pots simmering on the stoves, dog sleds gone and no one around anywhere. The dogs and sleds were found s a short distance away buried in the snow. The dogs were dead. Graves of ancestors were opened up. This was impossible to do because the ground was frozen solid, but it happened. The bodies were gone. What happened to all the people?

Then there is the strange disappearance of the Vermont man who was on a bus with fourteen other people when he vanished. All the witnesses saw the man sleeping on the bus and when they arrived at their destination, the man was gone. His belongings were still there including his bus schedule on the seat next to where he was sitting. Then there were more disappearances of people from the same area as the man. Bennington strange disappearances happened between 1920 and 1950.

An eighteen-year-old student disappeared while on the trail in Glastonbury Mountain and then an eight-year-old boy disappeared from his parent's farm. Neither was ever seen again. There were many disappearances in this area and the Indians believed that evil spirits lived in the wilderness of Glastonbury. However, there have not been any more disappearances since 1950.

The strangest of disappearances is that of David Lang who disappeared in front of his children, wife, brother-in-law and a local attorney. He was walking through the field by his home in Summer County, Tennessee when he vanished into thin air. A circle of brown still marks the place where he disappeared and no animals or insects go near the area. Nothing will grow in that are as well.

What causes these disappearances and where do the people go? Is there some supernatural gravity pull that can make a person vanish without a trace without anyone knowing what happened? Is there a porthole of some type that pulls people in when they least expect it. What other explanation could there be for these strange disappearances.

Some people will ignore these disappearances and call them legends, myths or even fictitious stories, but one has to wonder if they are not true then where do all the people go that disappear and are never seen or heard from again. Are you willing to believe that there is no such thing as another dimension? One can only wait to see what happens next in the world. 



  1. There's plenty in this world our perception is too narrow to acknowledge or that's simply beyond our capacity fo runderstanding. We can only do our best to keep an open mind and hold fast to a determination to appreciate it in all its awesome glory (and I mean awesome in the original sense of the word, not the Canadian one ;-))
    Like you, I'm a sucker for the unexplained.

  2. But why them and not somebody else? Did they have any unsual qualities or were they everyday people!? Or maybe they had been kidnapped by extraterestrial creatures for some reason?

  3. Good review. I live not far from Gallatin, the scene of the Lang disappearance, but it is far more likely these are all just urban legends. Local census records have no record of a David Lang living in the area during the time frame his story occurs.

  4. Brilliant piece Georg, really enjoyed it. I love anything like this Food for thought and fiction.
    We may think we have the answers, but we don't do we?
