Researcher and author David Paulides has worked in law enforcement in the San Francisco Bay Area - on everything from street crimes, SWAT, and Vice, to a variety of assignments in the detective division. He's become an expert on the disproportionate number of mysterious disappearances happening in our national parks and discussed new hair-raising cases and the patterns associated with them.
So far, Paulides has documented around 1,500-1,600 unexplained disappearance cases, and in about 20% of the incidents the people are found dead, but the majority of the time, the bodies are never found. When people are found alive, they're typically not able to adequately describe what happened, he said. There have been a number of cases where people were missing for around 8 days, and found without most of their clothes, yet they didn't have mosquito bites or a sunburn, he added.
