“These people disappear right in the midst of many others,
and nobody ever sees them leave.”
- David Paulides, Founder CanAm Missing Project and Missing 411 Investigator
In 2011, retired police officer David Paulides launched the Can(ada)Am(erica)
Missing Project, which catalogs cases of people who mysteriously disappear —
or are found — across North America. David has released six books in his popular
Missing 411 series, and now in 2017, a documentary film, Missing 411: The Movie,
co-directed by his son, Ben Paulides. See Websites below.
Return to Part 1.
July 28, 2017 Denver, Colorado - The New York City Police Department has a Missing Persons Squad dedicated to searching for people. Last year, more than 13,000 were reported missing in New York City.
ABC's Nightline did a news feature about the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that has had reports as high as 2,000 missing young people a day. Of those, about 115 children each year fall into the “stranger abduction” cases.
Last year of 2016, the National Center reported it had some 20,500 cases of missing children. 90% were endangered runaways; 6% were family abductions; 2% were young adults ages 18 to 20; 1% were lost, injured or missing children; and 1% were non-family abduction. It's in that small 1% category that there are mysterious cases with characteristics like David Paulides's 411 Missing profile. But David's statistics show that most of the missing people he investigates disappeared near — and sometimes reappear dead — near large bodies of water.

David Paulides, retired police officer and founder of the CanAm Missing Project and author of the Missing 411 books and newly released documentary: “When we did the movie, we brought out a map and four of us sat around a table. And there's 59 geographical cluster points in North America where people go missing that have profiles that match what we're looking for. 80 percent of all of those geographical clusters are within 150-200 miles of major bodies of water. Meaning, they completely encircle the Great Lakes, they're up and down the East and West Coasts of the U.S. And when you look at the map, there's a swath that goes north to south down the middle of the U.S. where there's essentially nothing. And those are the furthest points from the ocean. Coincidental? I don't know, but it is odd.
THAT LINKS IN MY MIND TO SOMETHING THAT A MAN WHO RETIRED FROM THE DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY TOLD ME IN DECEMBER OF 1999. HE WAS TALKING TO ME ABOUT THE ALIEN PRESENCE ON THIS PLANET, AND SAID THAT OUR GOVERNMENT HAS KNOWN FOR A LONG TIME THAT ALIENS THAT ARE NOT HUMAN HAVE THE ABILITY TO BASE THEMSELVES IN THE 2/3RDS OF THIS PLANET THAT ARE COVERED BY WATER.
Many people disappear in very close proximity to large bodies of water. Creeks, rivers, dams, oceans, and oftentimes they're found in close proximity to water. And it's the coincidence of water and another important fact, and that's boulders and granite. The largest cluster of missing people in the United States or anywhere in the world that we've found so far is Yosemite National Park.
And as we know, there's probably the largest accumulation of granite anywhere in the world right there. And when you look at that area of Yosemite, in that surrounding region of the park that has a lot of granite, there's a super high incidence of missing people that match our profile points.
WELL, ONE OF MY OWN INVESTIGATIONS INVOLVED THE RELATIONSHIP OF HIGH-QUALITY GRANITE TO A UFO INTERACTION. I FOUND THAT SOME GRANITE CAN BE 60 PERCENT QUARTZ. QUARTZ IS A CRYSTAL. A HIGH-QUALITY GRANITE WITH A LOT OF QUARTZ FUNCTIONS AS A CRYSTAL. THERE COULD BE FREQUENCIES OR THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THE INTERACTION WITH HIGH QUARTZ CONTENT GRANITE ON THIS PLANET.
Strange New York City Case
We originally started investigating disappearances in national parks and forests, and as readers started to absorb and understand what we were looking for in these cases, they said, "Dave, you should really look into urban areas, because a few of these urban cases fit the exact profile you're looking for."
And I was pointed towards a case in New York City where a detective working missing persons was very, very sharp. He documented exactly what he did. So a person disappears after going to a bar in New York City, and he tells some friends he's going home. He disappears between the bar and his home. And he's gone for, I think, eight days, nine days.
And then he's found in one of the rivers in New York. Well, a detective working the case goes when the body's pulled out and goes to the autopsy, and the coroner looks at the body and realizes, "Well, this person's been gone eight or nine days, but they don't show the decomposition and specifics of a body that's been in a river that amount of time. It only shows that it's been in the river for a couple days, which doesn't make any sense."
Because this person was a very reputable individual, good student, athlete. Just doesn't disappear, and then *boom* they're gone. And the location they were found in the river wouldn't have been downriver from where they disappeared, so that didn't make sense either.
Anoka, Minnesota: Clean Socks
On Body At Muddy Pond
Anoka, Minnesota, is a town of some 17,000 people about a half-hour
from Minneapolis and not far from Lake Superior in the Great Lakes,
a major center for missing people and UFO reports.
And then I started to look into unusual disappearances from bars of young student athletes, males predominantly, and all of a sudden, it started to open up this really wide berth of disappearances, meaning you couldn't track a person from point to point. They were found many times missing clothing or shoes. They were found in or near bodies of water. One of the probably best examples of these cases involved a young man named Jelani Brinson, 24 years old, Division II soccer athlete, disappeared April 17th, 2009 from Anoka, Minnesota about 10:30 PM.
Jelani was at a party with some friends at their house, and he told some buddies that he was just going to step outside for a short while and hang out. There's a storm outside, and it's storming pretty good. And his friends see him outside, and they go out and check on him a few minutes later and he's gone. Well, that night, he doesn't come back home, he doesn't go back to school. And he was reported as a missing person. And the police actually take it seriously, which is refreshing, and they start searching all the backyards in that neighborhood, and they find shoes in some backyards. They found some clothing is some other backyards. And it's not making any sense at all.
And as it goes on, they sort of give up on trying to find the young man because there's no evidence where he is. Well, several days later, it's still storming during these days, a couple golfers get a break in the weather and they go out to this local golf course located about a half mile from where this young man disappeared, and in the pond, they see a body on the water. They call the police, the police come out, and they pull the body out.
They notice that this young man isn't wearing shoes. And one very smart detective is looking at everything around this pond. There's mud everywhere, the ground is soft, there's no tracks leading into the pond, and this guy's socks are completely clean. And the detective can't put it together. How did the kid get in the pond? His socks should have been filthy. There should have been tracks, but there aren't any. And he wrote it up. And he thought it was really odd, and he made some statements to the press saying in all of his career, he had never seen anything like this that he can't explain.
How Do People Disappear Among Other People
and Even Dogs Can't Track Them?
And on top of all that, they were having a difficult time determining how this person died. Now, the profile on these urban disappearances is predominantly young men, really healthy, many of them athletes, are at a party or a liquor establishment, they disappear in amongst a group of people. And nobody ever sees them leave. A lot of times, there's a big storm in the area, or many times it's in the middle of winter and they check the snow around the area, and there's no tracks leaving the scene. And they bring canines up. Canines can't track away from the scene. In many of the instances I write about, there's CCTV covering the exits, and they don't pick up the person leaving, which is really weird.
On top of that, in many of the cases, the bodies don't show the physical symptoms of being in the water the entire time they're missing, which means that they're someplace else during that time, which doesn't make any sense. And they can never determine where they were. In only one instance did a guy come back and he was alive floating down an icy river, and he woke up. He made his way to shore, crawled his way to a hospital with the help of some people standing by the river. And they couldn't figure out where he had been, how he got in the river, why he woke up in the river, and how he was able to save himself from hypothermia. And his police statement stated exactly what I just said. So there's not a lot of answers to what's going on or why these people are chosen other than a majority of the time, these young men are the cream of the crop of that environment that they disappeared in. Student athletes, on scholarship, many of them. It's baffling.
IS THERE ANY CITY OR PART OF THE COUNTRY IN YOUR REPORTS WHERE URBAN DISAPPEARANCES HAPPEN MORE THAN OTHER PLACES?
The number one state, I would say, is Wisconsin. Followed by Minnesota, Michigan, but Wisconsin holds the number one position on that.
Great Lakes A Center of Missing People —
And Lots of UFO Reports
WELL, ALL THREE OF THOSE STATES ARE IN THE SAME PLACE AROUND THE GREAT LAKES, AND THAT MAKES ME THINK OF THE GREAT LAKES BEING THE CENTER OF SO MUCH UFO PHENOMENA IN NORTH AMERICA. IN FACT, I THINK LAKE EERIE IS NUMBER ONE ON STAN GORDON'S LOCATION IN PENNSYLVANIA OF THE MOST UFO CASES THAT HE GETS.
AND THAT WHATEVER WE'RE DEALING WITH HAS THE ABILITY TO PLUCK PEOPLE FROM, IN THIS CASE, AN URBAN AREA. AND IF ALL THREE OF THESE STATES, WISCONSIN, MINNESOTA, AND MICHIGAN, ARE CLOSE TO THE GREAT LAKES, I WONDER IF THERE IS SOME SYMBIOSIS BETWEEN THE BIG BODY OF WATER AND WHERE THESE KINDS OF MISSING CASES ARE?
When you look at our cluster map, clusters going up and down the West Coast, up and down the East Coast, and surrounding the Great Lakes, representing a huge percentage of all the missing on that map. So I think water and missing people, you just couldn't ignore it.
AND IF THE HYPOTHESIS THAT PEOPLE IN THE GOVERNMENT HAVE TALKED TO ME SAY THAT THEY ARE CONVINCED THAT AN ALIEN PRESENCE CAMOUFLAGES ITSELF BENEATH BODIES OF WATER WHERE 2/3RDS OF THE PLANET IS COVERED BY WATER, THEN THERE MIGHT BE AN ASSOCIATION BETWEEN AN ALIEN PRESENCE AND WHAT COULD BE HAPPENING TO PEOPLE.
Makes sense. These people disappear right in the midst of many others, and nobody ever sees them leave.
AND THAT COMES TO THE WHOLE ISSUE OF THE ALIEN PRESENCE HAVING INVISIBILITY AS A TECHNOLOGY THAT HAS EVEN BEEN DESCRIBED BY SCIENTISTS WHO HAVE WORKED ON TRYING TO BACK-ENGINEER IT. AND THAT WE HAVE HAD AN ALIEN PRESENCE ON THIS PLANET FOR A LONG TIME, AND THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO BEAM UP ANIMALS, BEAM UP PEOPLE, BEAM UP ANYTHING THEY WANT.
Right. I hear that all the time. You know, one of the things that I get asked at UFO conferences is, "Well, Dave, why, since they probably have the ability to jettison the body any place they want, why do they want to put it back where everyone can find it and be mystified about what did happen?"
SAME WITH THE ANIMAL MUTILATIONS. LAW ENFORCEMENT STARTED ASKING ME WHEN I WAS WORKING '79-'80 ON A STRANGE HARVEST. WHY, IF IT'S WHAT THEY CALL "CREATURES FROM OUTER SPACE"—THAT'S WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT SAID. WHY WOULD CREATURES FROM OUTER SPACE KEEP RETURNING THE ANIMALS THAT THEY TAKE RIGHT BACK TO THE PASTURES WHERE THEY'D BEEN TAKEN? THE ONLY ANSWER THAT IS LOGICAL TO A HUMAN MIND IS A FLAUNTING. "WE CAN DO THIS. YOU CAN'T." AND THEREFORE, A KIND OF PSYCHOLOGICAL INTIMIDATION.
I'm somebody that doesn't discount anything at this point.”
