what is going on everyone have you ever
just wanted to get away people do it all the time
sadly sometimes they didn’t plan it that way people have mental breakdowns people
encounter foul play they get lost at sea and some people think little green men
snatch them up and do experiments on their backside did you know that there
are places in the United States where more than a few people have just
disappeared without a trace like poof they’re gone never to be seen
again people at theories on what happened but no solid proof I mean
occasionally it’s safe to assume that if a person fell overboard while boating on
a New Jersey Lake or something but there’s no proof until they find that
person or body whatever the case may be and that’s what today’s list is all
about places where people have disappeared never to be found again more
than once in a location so hey lock your front door grab a cup of tea and watch
my top ten places people keep disappearing from in the United States
number ten herb hammer Iowa now this one’s really
weird Kirk hammer was a town in Iowa and I’m not even sure I’m pronouncing it
right but we’ll press on anyway there was supposedly a town that once existed
known as Kirk hammer though no one speaks of it today it had apparently
been an average Midwestern community up until about in 1928 when all the
residents suddenly vanished like they don’t know where they went the
population of Iowa is sort of sparse today so you can imagine what it was
like back in 1928 there were several reports from passing travelers of this
empty town which eventually led to an instant being published in some local
newspapers but the stock market crashed in 1929 and soon this was just the back
page story and became a side note in a really tragic time in the United States
when the Dust Bowl hit Herkimer was left in a disheveled state and quickly
forgotten there are no traces of the town to this day some really aren’t sure
where it was obviously we didn’t have satellites and youtubes back then so
we’ll never know what happened for sure you know if that was reported today
tomorrow the town would be crawling with youtubers including myself trying to
figure out what went on number nine the bennington triangle
located in the southwestern part of Vermont this landlocked triangular area
is notorious for string of unexplained disappearances that occurred here from
1945 to 1955 seven – possibly ten people vanished in this area ranging from an
eight-year-old boy to a 74 year old mountain guide female and even a man
disappeared while on the bus like he was on the bus one minute gone the next
there’s also other reports that people that were heading that direction were
never heard from again there’s no real evidence of that there’s
one story in 1949 where three hunters went missing from the area but like I
said little evidence of those claims to this day there’s no definite explanation
for the vanishings I mean nobody was ever found nobody knows what happened
nobody saw them get abducted they didn’t find a body at the bottom of a ravine
nothing a lot of people believe that they may have been victims of a serial
killer but again no proof see that or maybe Bigfoot’s abducting people I’ve
never heard of him abducting people but maybe he’s just that good number eight
the Great Smoky Mountains between the states of Tennessee in North Carolina
you have the Appalachian mountain area inside that you have the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park if you’ve never been here or seen the
Great Smoky Mountains I would suggest it you’ll thank me later unless of course
you end up going missing then I imagine your family’s gonna build a voodoo doll
about me and force him to watch the Kardashians cuz that’s torture
since the Smoky Mountains are part of the National Park System it’s natural
that they get a lot of tourists and many of those tourists go to the towns that
are all around the area get a lot of foot traffic for their businesses the
downside is a bunch of people have gone missing over the years the earliest one
recorded was in 1969 when a six year old boy went missing despite the largest
manhunt in the history of the Smoky Mountains National Park searchers came
up empty in June of 1969 while looking for six year old Dennis Martin Dennis’s
father and some other adults at southwest of Anthony Creek Trailhead
watching Dennis his nine year old brother Douglas and a couple other boys
playing near the top of the trailhead Douglas the 9 year old brother would
later tell Park officials that he and the other children hatched a plan played
joke on the grown-ups they would sneak around and Surprise them
Douglas and the two other boys went one way and six-year-old Dennis went the
other not a good plan already it was the last time he was ever seen again the
adults had seen the boy split up but when Douglas and the other two
reappeared there was no dentist they’d never found a trace and then the
latest one happened in 1981 when an elderly woman went into the woods and
was never seen again number seven superstition mountains out
in the desert of Arizona near Phoenix it’s the Superstition Mountains
locals call superstitions when the Spanish originally rolled through here
they called them sierra de la espuma which I believe I’m pronouncing right
anyway been a long time since I took a Spanish class but it means the mountain
range of foam I don’t know what was going on with these Spaniards when they
rolled through here they were missing like bubble baths or
whatever and just had bubbles on their mind they called him the mountain range
of foam these mountains are not only known for their legends among the Apache
people who believe that this is the entrance to the underworld somewhere
around these mountains but who knows it’s also known for numerous
disappearances that have occurred over the years a lot of these people went
missing and were found years later dead obviously and the strange thing about a
lot of them they were missing their heads it’s like some tradition around
here find someone in the desert digging around and yet chop off their head I
don’t know a lot of people go here over the you know decades and centuries
looking for the Lost Dutchman’s gold they had another one in 1958 the
identity of the person who disappeared is unknown but in April of 1958 a
deserted campsite was discovered over the northern outskirts of the mountain
range and the scene was pretty grim things like cooking tools gun cleaning
supplies Geiger counter and some personal letters were left behind but
most disturbingly there was a blood-soaked blanket someone left their
letters behind but tore all the addresses out of the letters and the
name of the person so they don’t know where the person went and they just know
there was a bloody blanket behind left all their stuff behind and someone took
all the names off the letters that’s just weird number six Pyramid Lake near Reno Nevada
sits Pyramid Lake named after the pyramid shaped rock formations sticking
out of water Pyramid Lake yet the lake is on the Paiute Indian Reservation is
one of the tribes main fishing grounds the lake is home to a couple different
species of trout those good eaten there but this beautiful Lake got some
attention of the media and the Internet when two men went missing there in 2017
leading to some speculations about what could have happened to them it’s been
two years since Ron hegwood and Quinton Johnson went missing there’s a lot of
theories out there this even includes the idea that they were dragged
underwater by spirits known as water babies yeah water babies they’re these
things that they make a crying noise and when you look over to see if there’s a
baby in the water they pull you in never to be seen again and it’s also part of
the Paiute legend this is the thing about the lake it is deep and it stays
cold this causes bodies that fall into the
lake not to decompose if they don’t decompose they stay preserved and
submerged for a very long time in the 1980s a body of a woman floated to the
top of the lake they pulled her out obviously they did not Topsy and came to
the conclusion she died in the 1800s that’s freaky number five the Nevada
triangle consisting of a large section of desert and the Sierra Nevada
mountains this triangular area in Nevada in California has made headlines in the
last decade or so due to a disappearance that occurred on September 3rd 2007 the
victim was aviator adventurer and friend to billionaires Steve Fossett he flew
into the Nevada triangle a small plane it was never seen or heard from again on
May 1st 2008 they did find the plane but no Steve then on October 29th 2008
search teams recovered two large human bones that they suspected might belong
to Fossett these bones we’re about a half a mile east of the crash site and
it also had a tennis shoe with animal bites on it so things weren’t looking
good for Steve at this point and on November 3rd
the California coroner said that the DNA profiling of the two bones confirmed
that it matched Fawcett’s DNA but Derek County Sheriff John Anderson said
Fossett would have died on impact in such a crash and that it’s not unusual
for an animal to Rag remains away like this so yeah I
hope he died on impact that’d be kind of brutal you sittin there tryin to cover
maybe you got a broken leg trying to drink rainwater somethin like that
next thing you know something’s dragging your way that’s not good but he’s not
the only one a lot of other people disappeared in this area a lot of people
think it’s close proximity era 51 has something to do with it some even think
it’s ghosts that attack planes the Nevada triangle has become an
aircraft graveyard in the last 60 years hundreds of pilots who have ventured in
the last 60 years hundreds of pilots who’ve ventured into this area never
return at least not alive number four one of the most popular national parks
in the world is Yosemite in California it is known for its beauty and its wide
array of wildlife which includes bears that has been a problem since forever
bears have always been a problem in most national parks back when I first visited
Yosemite they had these outhouses that you would sit in that only came up to
like your shoulders sort of like a convertible car this way you could see
if anything was coming towards you while you were doing your business the good
news about those things that if you did see a bear rushing towards you out of
the woods while you’re on the toilet you were already prepared what was about to
happen to your bowels no need for Metamucil the bear kind of worked that
out for you Yosemite is known for the many disappearances it is seen over the
years 45 of which have never been solved and that dates back to the 1800s
there’s even stories about children who were spirited away from where they
originally were in the park and end up in a completely different section miles
and miles away these stories are blamed by supernatural beings that supposedly
occupy the area one in particular was Stacy an heiress who was 14 years old
when she disappeared in Yosemite she was part of a group of 10 people that were
on a four-day guided horseback trip through the park on July 17th 1981 the
group had reached some cabins that they were to stay overnight at as everyone
was eating and showering she was last seen going over to some small lake not
too far away to take pictures they say the last person that saw her saw her
standing on a boulder about 50 yards away from camp they never found a trace
of her number three Lake Superior one of the
great lakes that sits along the border of the United States and Canada is Lake
Superior and it’s gained notoriety over the years for the number of ships that
it’s claimed the bottom of the lake is littered with wrecks that have been
found and some sit hundreds of years later waiting to be found for this
reason the place attracts scuba divers and research vessels with remote
submersibles that go down looking for sunken ships probably the most infamous
is the Edmund Fitzgerald that went down in 1975 this was the inspiration for the
famous folk song by Gordon Lightfoot called the wreck of the Edmund
Fitzgerald which told the story of the disaster there are over 70 big ships
that have disappeared on Lake Superior about 15 of those have never been found
that’s not even counting the smaller ones that have gone missing there’s an
old saying that was also in the lyrics to the Gordon Lightfoot song but the
saying is superior they say never gives up its dead number two Pecos New Mexico
not to be confused with Pako Texas this is a small village in New Mexico and
it’s not too far from Santa Fe on the Pecos River hence the name Pecos while
it is a popular place for the outdoorsy hunting fishing types it’s also known
for several disappearances that have occurred in the area back in 2009 a 61
year old man went missing on a hunting trip and was never seen again
Mel Melvin Nadal aged 61 vanished outside of Pecos near Elk Mountain on
Sunday September 6 2009 there’s been no trace of Mel at all he and his friends
went hunting at some point he decided to stay near camp and poof Mel was gone
this and many other missing persons have led the locals to refer the area as the
Pecos triangle with wrote supposedly haunted by supernatural beings and UFOs
of course if it’s New Mexico Arizona someone’s got to throw some aliens in
their UFOs what not all that good stuff have you ever noticed whenever they got
a couple too many people go missing an area they throw triangle on it and number one the Alaskan triangle see
there it is again triangle the border of the Alaskan
triangle stretches from Barrow at the north coast to Anchorage and a Juneau
across the southern coast and includes vast areas of largely uninhabited
wilderness sprawling forests and a desolate Tundra are clearly not the
safest places in the world for humans to you know put down roots
hundreds of search-and-rescue missions conducted every year by the Alaskan
state troopers rarely find a trace of bodies of people that went missing in
the area the triangle came into the public’s attention when the then US
House Majority Leader Hale Boggs airplane vanished somewhere between
Anchorage and Juneau on October 16th 1972 the disappearance triggered one of
the country’s largest search-and-rescue operations ever involving 40 military
aircraft 50 civilian planes and 39 days of searching an area of about 32,000
square miles the search found nothing no wreckage no debris no human remains
nothing on November 24th 1972 the search was suspended after 39 days
disappearances without a trace are not unusual in this region since 1988
more than 16,000 people have vanished in the Alaskan Triangle this contributes to
an annual filing of roughly four missing person reports for every thousand people
in Alaska more than twice the national average all right so that’s my top 10
places people keep disappearing from in the United States hope you guys enjoyed
it hope you got some information out of it that was a lot to take in that was
really weird one to do I’m kind of alarmed at what’s going on in the
Alaskan Triangle anyway don’t forget all the links below give the video big
