Biography

Dave Paulides received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of San Francisco, and, has a professional background that includes twenty years in law enforcement (Three and one half years at Fremont Police and sixteen and a half years at San Jose Police) and senior executive positions in the technology sector. In 2004 he formed North America Bigfoot Search-NABS (www.nabigfootsearch.com) where his investigative and analytical experience were invaluable in researching Bigfoot/Sasquatch sightings, encounters and behavior. He spent two years living among the Hoopa tribal members, listening to and recording their Bigfoot stories. The Hoopa Project is his first book, based upon his experiences in the Bluff Creek area of Northern California. David's second book, Tribal Bigfoot is a quantum step forward in Bigfoot research and allows for a common sense understanding of this elusive biped. These two books have been called the new standard for crypto research.


NABS was also the group that started the Bigfoot DNA project which was instrumental in the identification of bigfoot/sasquatch as its own species.

On March 1, 2012 David released his third book, Missing 411-Western U.S., the story of people who have disappeared in the wilds of North America. Many of the parents and relatives of the missing make claims that the victim was kidnapped/abducted, in very remote areas, this is well documented. This 3+ year 7000 hour investigation into unexplained disappearances in isolated locations is a book that anyone who walks in the woods should read. The real question that this book elicits is.... What is happening to these people?

In late March 2012 David's fourth book was released, Missing 411-Eastern U.S. The eastern version is a continuation of stories which occurred in the eastern half of the United States with special sections on unusual outdoor activities which seem to be related to disappearances and a master list of all people who have vanished.

In June 2012 Mr. Paulides was an invited speaker at the 2012 National Association of Search and Rescue (NASAR) annual conference in South Lake Tahoe. The presentation was on the findings of the Can Am Project that were detailed in Missing 411. The packed room at the Harvey's Convention Center heard Mr. Paulides give a detailed overview of the twenty eight clusters of missing people and the associated elements found within the clusters.

Since the release of the Missing 411 series, Mr. Paulides has been a guest on countless radio shows, morning television and prime time news casts. The 411 series has been vetted by some of the best Search and Rescue professionals, investigative journalists, radio and television hosts and print journalists from north America.
