Throughout human history there are many cases when people just disappear without explanation.
Any crime leaves traces — the truth often came to the aid of investigators and forensic scientists.
People can’t just up and disappear into thin air, and certainly this can not happen with a few people or even entire villages. Or maybe?.. The strangest cases of mass disappearances of people in our material.
Eskimo village on lake Anjikuni
It has been more than 80 years, and scientists have not found an explanation for the mysterious missing persons in 1930 in Canada. Angikuni — was not only the lake, but also the local fishing village nearby. It lived about 2,000 Inuit, always happily brevicauda travellers.
This area has been a lure for hunters and anglers in the vicinity of the beat and the fur and miners rarely left empty handed. Although getting to Angikuni was not easy, were a brave seekers, among whom was a canadian hunter named Joe Labelle. He often visited those parts, and after the hunt, loved to stay in the village of the Inuit, to rest and gain strength.
But on November 12, 1930 he was unable to warm up in a hot hearth. The day was cold, so Labelle was terribly cold and count the minutes to the village. Finally we saw the needle, but Joe pointed out that around suspiciously empty and quiet. He called out a greeting, but no one responded. Joe drove on skis to the first house and entered. Inside there was nobody, although the situation talked about the fact that residents left the dwelling like a few moments ago in a pot of boiling soup, all things were in their places.
Bypassing the village, Joe has not found a soul. Despite the fact that the needle is left all warm clothing and weapons, food, and around the village the snow didn’t keep any human scent, despite the calm weather. Frightened, the hunter, in haste went to the nearest Telegraph office and reported about the terrible loss of the canadian police.
After a few hours arrived detachment. A few other hunters that come near, said that the night saw a strange luminous object and it seemed to them somehow related to the mysterious disappearance of people.
But the grisly details was waiting for the police and the hunters to come. First, the local cemetery was completely devastated: the grave was dug, and the bodies disappeared. Secondly, near the village found the dead dogs. Eskimos, who consider dogs their breadwinners and great value, never in my life would not have killed the whole flock and certainly would not have touched their dead.
What happened to the 2 thousand Eskimos, why do they leave all their belongings, and took no food, no clothes, and remained a mystery.
The Village Of Heuer Verde
The disappearance of 600 persons from a Brazilian village in 1923, more like a horror movie than real history. To start with, about, Heuer Verde and before her disappearance, very little was known: what did local residents as they lived… But the village existed, and there were people living there.
Soldiers of the national army arrived in the village, who greeted them with silence and emptiness. Somewhere was working radio, they had tables of leftover food, some places still not extinguished the fire. The worst thing is that on the school Board, the soldiers found the inscription: “there is no Salvation”. And there was found recently shooting a gun.
In fairness it should be noted that the only information about the village of Heuer on the Internet is the history of this disappearance, so to verify the authenticity of this story today is quite difficult.
The Ship “Cyclops”
“Cyclops” — an American ship, named in honor of the one-eyed character of Greek myths, was built for the US Navy several years before the First world war. According to the classical canons of mysterious disappearances, the ship disappeared in the Bermuda triangle, and no remains of the bodies or the ship was never found. Missing 306 people, including crew members and passengers.
On 16 February 1918 the ship left the port of Rio de Janeiro and headed toward the North Atlantic States. In addition to people, the ship was carrying 10 thousand tons of manganese ore. The ship made an unscheduled stop in the area of Barbados due to overload (the capacity of the “Cyclops” was only 8 thousand tons), but there are no alarm signals are not sent.
At the destination port, the ship never arrived. Was put forward many theories, but none of them can explain how it disappeared the ship. It is noteworthy that during the Second world war, two “brothers of the Cyclops” — the ship “Proteus” and “Nereus” — also disappeared, carrying the heavy metal ore, similar to the one that transported the “Cyclops”. They disappeared in the same region of the Bermuda triangle.
Lighthouse Islands Flannan
Flannan Islands are a small archipelago near Scotland. Today the island is uninhabited — since lighthouse began to operate automatically, the profession of lighthouse keepers is gone. On the Islands stands a 23-foot lighthouse that helps ships find a way in a troubled sea of the dark.
In 1925, he became one of the first lighthouses in Scotland, equipped with a Telegraph, but a quarter of a century earlier…
In the beginning of the century the lighthouse was supposed to be three of the Ranger, another was on the shore. Every flight to the Islands he followed one of the caretakers and took his place.
When was the mysterious disappearance, at the lighthouse were: second assistant Keeper James Ducat (James Ducat), first assistant Thomas Marshall (Thomas Marshall) and his assistant Donald “Random” MacArthur (Donald “Occasional” McArthur). Three weeks before the accident the chief inspector Joseph Moore (Joseph Moore) left the lighthouse. According to him, everything was perfect as usual.
But 15 Dec 1900 steamer “Arctor”, which was flying from Philadelphia to Lit, the alarm went: the crew of the ship complained that the lighthouse there is no signal. Unfortunately, the authorities did not attach great importance, and the flight to the lighthouse, which was to be held December 20, was cancelled due to bad weather conditions.
26 Dec Joseph Moore and the team managed to reach the lighthouse. But they met no one, except the bare flagpole. The gate of the lighthouse and all the doors were locked, the caretakers bed unmade and the clock stopped. Surprisingly, the lamp of the lighthouse was well polished, they had enough fuel, and waterproof cloaks the Rangers hung on their hooks. The only thing that was strange, the setting of the beacon upside — down kitchen table.
Upon arrival at the base the ship’s captain reported: “the Mysterious incident occurred on the Islands of Flannan. Three Keeper James Ducat, Thomas Marshall and Donald “Random” MacArthur disappeared from the island. Stopped clock and other facts indicate that it happened about a week ago. Poor guys! They must be blown away from the cliff or they drowned trying to repair the linkage or anything like that.”
The last entry in the logbook was made at 9:00 on 15 December 1900, but before that, on the night of 14 December, the Rangers have recorded a strong storm, although none of the shore stations in the area and none of the passing by ships in those days, until December 16, no storm is not recorded.
Version of events range from the mystical (the aliens) to criminal and tragic (one of the Rangers killed the other two), but reliable information about what happened on a distant Scottish island does not exist.
