I will probably regret burning through this series so quickly -- hopefully David Paulides is hard at work on the next Missing 411 book.

This book contains a couple of more well-known disappearances, such as that of Keith Reinhard, who went missing in Colorado in 1988. Mr. Reinhard moved to Silver Plume, Colorado, after taking a sabbatical from his job as a sportswriter for the Chicago Daily Herald. He was primarily interested in working on a novel, as well as running a small antiques shop, but af

This is another book of unusual missing persons cases by David Paulides. The information is intriguing, but I do believe some of the cases can be explained by mundane abduction or murder. While I have enjoyed and am fascinated by all of the "Missing 411" books, I will say that typographical errors cause some of the entries to be difficult to understand and some time lines difficult to follow. I would be interested in reading a follow-up book that details some of the theories as to what/who is ca ...more

So. Of course I'm fascinated by David Paulides' Missing 411 series (which I found through the documentary that came out this year). Fascinated and yet brutally skeptical.

Missing persons is a horrifying and baffling phenomenon, and while I appreciate the sheer quantity of data Paulides has collected in this and the 5 other Missing 411 books, I do not appreciate his sensationalist, faux-scientific, and disingenuously "neutral" approach to the material. Paulides is a former Bigfoot researc

An interesting read - but it certainly doesn't provide any evidence of some strange phenomenon in our National Parks. Rather it is an author trying to twist the facts to support his preconceived ideas. I posted my review on my blog, so I won't recreate it here.

Scarier than the average horror novel, IMO.

This is the fourth book in the Missing 411 series. Paulides pulls together missing person cases from all around the globe. Most of these individuals disappear in rural areas, often near national parks. Some disappear and nothing is ever found. A few are located. However, most are unable to say what happened to them. Some are just too young to be able to articulate what happened, others have vague recollections. Many are found deceased, often missing clothing and footwear. An odd find considering ...more

(also on Amazon, but price-gouging very bad there on these books)

A person is there one moment, but gone the next. Untrackable by any means we currently have. Later found dead, or sometimes in a groggy state, unable to reveal what happened to them. It's pretty hard to ignore what this nonfictional book has to say; having once been made aware of these true missing-person accounts by lawman-turned-investigative-journalist David Paulides, you want to see the w

If you like this genre, it's a 5-star read. I found some of it scary. Earlier versions of Missing 411 (there are 4) have less detail and are less subtle about suggesting the paranormal, but this version has longer, more detailed stories and is not pointing as obviously to "alien abduction" and other absurd notions as explanations. Still, some of the stories are pretty spooky when you consider the vast unlikelihood that the victims could be in the place or condition they're actually found in, whe ...more

David Paulides continues to bring us more cases of strange disappearances from the USA and around the world using the same presentation format that he used in his previous books. In addition to the individual entries, he includes a section at the end where he presents complied tables from all his books to date documenting details, such as distances the missing covered before they were found, whether a missing person was an "intellectual" and other strange coincidences of note.

David Paulides is to be commended for the tedious research he has done with his Missing 411 books. In this new edition, he provides even more cases from North America and all over the world. This book will make you rethink your paradigm about people who disappear in the wilds. This book will make you grow eyes in the back of your head when you enter the woods, and be a thousand times more attentive about keeping track of the people in your group.

The author has opened a door to an issue that des

READ THIS NOW!!! It offers crucial pieces to the puzzle of random disappearances. People disappear every year around the world and it is accepted as just mysterious disappearances. Something unnatural is going on. Just the facts here.
