Mysterious disappearances of UFO researchers

In recent months the deaths of famous UFO hunters Max Spiers and Guarav Tiwari have prompted many to ask if someone is killing off our extra-terrestrial investigators.

But mysterious cases involving Ufologists are nothing new, and sometimes, instead of turning up dead, these people simply vanish.

Bruno Borges is one example. The Brazilian psychology student who was interested in extra-terrestrials and the Illuminati vanished earlier this year.

Frederick Valentich was a UFO enthusiast and a pilot; which sounds like the perfect combination for anyone wanting to investigate strange flashing lights in the sky.

Giant crop circles appear overnight in French field

The circles in Crézancy-en-Sancerre, France
The mysterious designs in central France attract curious sightseers but leave the farmer furious. Nearly a dozen circles, the largest some 500 meters in diameter, appeared in a barley field near Sancerre during the night between June 1 and June 2.

Among those who came to look at the circles outside Crézancy-en-Sancer was Didier Chaumien, who drove 20 kilometres with his family on Friday to admire the circles. "We've never seen anything like this in the region," he told the France 3 television station. "One wonders how it is done. There is no sign of entry into the field. It's crazy!"

Jean-Paul Millet, who farms the land, was less impressed. He has filed a complaint with the local gendarmerie. "This represents about 1 hectare, or 6 tons," he told Le Journal du Centre. He said the folded barley would not yield a crop this year and might force him to replant the field next year. He estimated that the circles would cost him about €1,000. "It's not very environmentally friendly," he said. "It's particularly disagreeable. I don't see the point of this sort of thing."

There have been crop circles in central France before. Examples appeared in in the Nièvre and Loiret departments in 2012 and there was one near Bourges in 2009.


Comment: "I don't see the point of this sort of thing."Perhaps a sort of 'message in a bottle'.

'Missing 411' documentary explores disappearance of Idaho toddler, other children

2-year old, Deorr Kunz.
"Missing 411" examines five American kids who vanished from forests or national parks under similar circumstances over several decades. DeOrr Kunz, an Idaho Falls toddler who vanished while on a camping trip at Lemhi County's Timber Creek Campground in July 2015, is a prominent focus of the 90 minute documentary.

"We decided this was a case that definitely needed to be featured in our film, not only because of the mysterious aspects of DeOrr's disappearance but also the social media outburst that accompanied it," Benjamin Paulides, co-director and producer of "Missing 411," tells EastIdahoNews.com.

Paulides and Michael DeGrazier visited east Idaho in October 2015 and interviewed DeOrr's parents, grandmother, investigators and others connected to the case. (Editor's note: EastIdahoNews.com News Director Nate Eaton was interviewed and appears in the documentary).

"We went in with a preconceived notion of what we thought we would find, and that notion was flipped on its head after talking to the family, going to the campground and seeing everything in its natural habitat," Paulides says. "We were more perplexed when we left than when we got there."

Bristol, UK couple film mysterious lights flashing above their home

This bizarre video footage shows what one man believes to be an extra-terrestrial visit from an 'enormous' UFO over his street.

Mike Westlake, 28, shot the mobile phone footage showing three large, bright lights in the shape of a triangle flashing in a straight line through the sky near his home.

He said the unidentified lights made no noise as they hung mysteriously above his house in Hanham, Bristol, for ten minutes.


Forklift truck instructor Mr Westlake said: 'It really weirded me out. I don't usually believe in UFOs or anything like that, so that's why it was so weird.'

He spotted the lights at about 9pm on a cloudy night when no stars were visible.

Billionaire and Nasa partner Robert Bigelow says aliens are "right under people's noses".
Billionaire Robert Bigelow, who is working with Nasa on lightweight structures for humans in space, says he's "absolutely convinced" aliens exist - and they're here on Earth.

Bigelow, 73, is the owner of hotel chain Budget Suites of America. In 1999 he founded Bigelow Aerospace, which has launched experimental space modules. Its aim is to develop space habitats to be used as orbital hotels, research labs and factories.

For the past year, an experimental Bigelow Expandable Activity Module has been attached to the International Space Station and has survived, passing a test of its ability to withstand space debris.

Nottingham, UK residents woken by strange 'whooshing' noise

© BBC
A strange whooshing noise has been waking Nottingham residents in the middle of the night.

The sound has been likened to that made by a jet engine, a hot air balloon or a giant blowtorch.

Some worried residents have contacted Nottinghamshire Police, who said the noise could be from machinery.

It has been heard for several weeks, with reports coming as far north as Wollaton and as far south as West Bridgford.

"For the last two mornings, I've heard a series of noises outside my house in Wollaton which sounds like a giant blowtorch," resident Hayley Compton said.


Comment: Another strange sounds recording was posted to YouTube on May 26th by Paul Millard:

Very strange deep sort of wind sounds coming from the sky above Nottingham. This was recorded at around 03:30 to 04:00 but has continued after while I've been uploading the video. Very strange and quite unnatural. I've not heard anything like this at all.

Seen a Bigfoot? Call Bigfoot 911 and this North Carolina group may investigate

Charlotteans who think they may have spotted Bigfoot in their yard are being advised their best option, as far as a sympathetic ear, is to call Bigfoot 911.

The McDowell News is reporting that Bigfoot 911 is a small but dedicated group of investigators who have quietly spent the past few years poking around the woods McDowell County in search of the legendary Bigfoot, or as some call him, Sasquatch.

Bigfoot 911, which formed in 2014, claims to have extensive evidence that Bigfoot exists, says the News. But they call it "The Beast of the Blue Ridge."

"What we do is Bigfoot expeditions in McDowell County," Bigfoot 911 creator John Bruner told McDowell News. "We've collected a ton of evidence, mostly photographs."

Bruner is a lieutenant and SMAT coordinator with McDowell EMS, it was reported. His Bigfoot 911 operation has about 50 members according to its Facebook page, including one guy who is billed as an "expert Bigfoot caller."

Mothman? Chupacabras? Or something else entirely?

In 2003, the South American country of Chile was hit by a spate of reports of traumatic and terrifying encounters with flying monsters. One particularly fantastic incident occurred on the night of July 23. That was when three boys, Jonathan, Diego, and Carlos were having a sleepover at Diego's grandfather's house, which was situated near San Pedro de Atacama. They were woken from their sleep by the sound of scratching against the outside of the door to the yard. Tentatively, the brave trio got out of their beds and tiptoed to the door, carefully and quietly opened it, and peered into the darkness.

To their eternal horror, they were confronted by a horrific-looking beast standing at a distance of around fifty feet and staring directly at them. It was humanoid in shape, beaked, and around five feet in height. It had large bat-style wings that extended to a combined length of around eleven feet, and talons instead of toes. And its head was crested. As for its color, it was black and shiny, almost wet-like. It wasn't a local.

A British witness at Exmouth reported watching and videotaping three lights forming a triangle pattern slowly crossing the sky, according to testimony in Case 832412 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.


The witness is a bus driver and was outside on a break at 9:41 p.m. on April 17, 2017, when the incident occurred.

"I was taking to my best man about my upcoming wedding on the phone," the witness stated."I would normally be in our restroom, but since the clock in the restroom was fast (about 7 minutes fast) I had gone out early to wait while still chatting to my friend. While I was talking, I was just kind of walking about near the leisure center, where my bus stops, when I looked randomly over in the direction of the river, which is when I saw the three lights in a triangle pattern rotating on its axis and wobbling slightly."
