Missing is the first comprehensive research about people who have disappeared in the paulidds of North America. Nobody has ever studied the archives for similarities, traits and geographical clusters of missing people, until now. The book chronicles children, adults and the elderly who disappeared, sometimes in the presence of friends and relatives. As Search and Rescue personnel exhaust leads and places to search, relatives start to believe kidnappings and abductions have occurred.
The belief by the relatives is not an isolated occurrence; it replicates itself time after time, case after case across North America.
The research depicts advid clusters of missing people across the continent, something that has never been exposed and was a shocking find to researchers. Topography does play a part into the age of the victims and certain clusters have specific age and sex consistency that is baffling.
The manuscript for the research was extremely large so the story was split between two books, Missing Western United States and Canada and Missing Eastern United States. The Eastern version will be released in late March and will include a list of all missing people in each edition and a concluding chapter that draws both books together for conclusions.
Some of the issues that are discussed in each edition: After reading this book, you will forever walk in the woods with a different awareness. Chances are, they will find a way. The paper trail uncovered by Paulides through. People are vanishing without a trace from our national. At a minimum, this story deserves space on the front. Dave, Your new book is an amazing work of research. Research is an art form and advid you have missinh is a work of clarity and beauty.
There is a simplicity to it that shines and is impossible to ignore. Reading it was a very emotional ride. There is the feeling of betrayal from the national park service. For years people have been disappearing and dying in our park system and park authorities remain silent and dismissive acting as if each case is a singular occurrence.
I can not imagine what it is like to be holding the uncertainty of a family member who never returns home and wondering about the elusive unknown that is out there lurking in our parks and forests. I am almost to the middle of this book. It is THE most disturbing true book I have ever read.
Missing Western United States and Canada by David Paulides
Having said that, it is also the most necessary book for everyone to read. While all the deaths are tragic, the children are especially heartbreaking.
And to think that the National Park Service and the FBI are almost assuredly complicit in these deaths with their continued cover up. I hope many, many people xavid come across this book and read it. Thanks for the hard work compiling this. A review by the Examiner.

I am a former deputy sheriff from California. I spent 8 years on the job and have investigated numerous strange cases. Read some of Mr. Paulides other books to get an idea of what may be happening to some of the missing people.
An absolutely chilling, sad and enlightening read.
Anyone spending time in the outdoors should read these books. I am buying the Eastern edition in paulids couple of days. If it is anything like the western edition, I won’t be able to put it down. David Paulides book series, including his second book Missing – Eastern United States and his third book Missing North America and Beyond, provide the disturbing and bizarre true facts of hundreds of people who have gone missing from or near wilderness areas under very unusual circumstances.
These books provide bone chilling, hair raising cases of people who have vanished without a trace from National parks davdi from their homes, cabins, back yards, trails, or rural areas near wilderness. What makes these books so interesting and thought provoking is that many of the extremely strange circumstances surrounding these disappearances occur in every case David PauIides writes about from Maine to California and beyond!
Even through these cases span decades, David Paulides has discovered many large clusters of people vanishing from certain areas. Paulides openly ponders the facts surrounding these strange and mysterious disappearances. What or who is responsible for so many people disappearing without a trace? For those of us who love true mysteries, there have never been a more captivating series of well written and thoroughly researched books.
Yes, I mean that. Many mossing taken place in our national parks and forests. Human scale is a character here: Also, the loss and pain of the families left behind is not forgotten by this former police detective, and many interviews with heartbroken loved ones are faithfully included. It’s brutal going, yet mesmerizing, because each case starts out with absolutely ordinary paluides — most of us have hiked, camped, hunted, played outside or picked berries — daavid all finish with a situation, very often death, that cannot be explained by any of the persons involved.
Finally someone addresses the issue of missing people that never seem to be solved. Then the mystery seems to get lost in the years and no one ever knows. David has finally touched on that subject and opens our eyes to the mystery of disappearance, the forest and beyond.
David has many more books I am anxious to read. Someone needs to start looking in to missign mysteries a little harder. How do people just vanish with no clues to what happen?
Thank you David for opening our eyes to this mystery and may we all work together to find some answers. Tipped off by a park ranger about unusual, unsolved disappearances in our national parks and what he viewed as a cover-up by the US Park Service, David Paulides has done a superb compilation of hundreds of these cases and correlated common oddities among many of them, such as trained bloodhounds being unable or refusing to track scent.
Evolving into a four book series Western US and Canada, Eastern US, North America and Beyond, and the last, The Devil is in the Detailsthe former police investigator has done what the controllers of Federal agencies involved should have done and have not to this day. The book s may well serve as a catalyst for a tide of public pressure to end the lack of forthrightness by the latter.
The books should have wide appeal for hunters, campers, fishermen and hikers; the millions who visit the national parks.
Also those who believe deaths and disappearances should be looked at to solve them, no stone unturned and those who are disturbed by Federal cover-ups or ineptness. Who or what are they protecting? Pauldes are they afraid of revealing? The people lost were fathers, mothers, children and friends of those who loved them who still deserve the truth and answers. Taken at face value, as “just-so” stories, the incidents in this book are bone-chilling. Paulides presents the facts, and – almost unprecedented in books dealing with “the unknown” – wisely refrains from presenting an explanation or general conclusion.
The nation’s forests are wild and beautiful, but also deadly. The book elimates “normal” disappearances and concentrates on the unknowns, to devastating emotional and cognitive effect. Not paulices Paulides knows and won’t tell us, but because the paulidfs themselves are so utterly unresponsive to standard investigative methodology. Be very afraid” is a pragmatic caveat for reading this book and its companion volumes.
This is a great book. I didn’t know about all the disappearances in different national parks. It is really an eye opener and I recommend it highly for those who want to know the truth! Intriguing detailed review of a current event happening in our National Parks and wild spaces. This may be the single most important mystery of our time and is certainly the most disturbing. David reports the facts that reveal the pattern.
He leaves conjecture out of his dialogue which clearly keeps the focus on the victims and patterns of disappearance. You must arm yourself with this knowledge and add your voice to the call for transparency from the National Park service! Purchase from David’s website for best prices and to support missinf efforts. These events continue to occur as evidenced by many recent news reports. The patterns repeat throughout these disappearances.
You must read these books to fully understand this ongoing mystery! I hope David Paulides comes to Arizona and researches all the strange happenings on highway that has been renamed because of the high strangeness that was going on.
Over the years I have done my own research. But David Paulides Has gone the extra mile to research and do his Missing books. I started reading the first Missing book and could not put it down! I have bought the other two Missing books on unexplained disappearances in the United States and Canada. When out enjoying the wilderness Paklides am very aware of what is all around me.
If you love the Great Outdoors or need a book for a cold evening night this is your book. I would tell you not only will you truly enjoy the information in this book but you will want to share it with your loved ones and friends. For the family paulidse friends that are reading this Please be Careful for the things that go bump in the night!
I rarely give books 5 stars. But the depth and detail of the author’s work is truly phenomenal. There are a few critics here that give the books low marks. However the critics are unable to explain most of the cases he presents. Like toddlers that suddenly disappear and are found alive many miles away AND atop a high mountain sometimes with no clothes on, yet never sexually molested.
