    A Montana man disappears. Case Study 7 by Rusty West. I think as one of the commenters has said "he was taken by surprise and against his will".

    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on. ---C. S. Lewis

    The video is germain to this thread. Most of the disappearances happen in the wilderness.

    Not saying it isn't. Just he starts with doctors, then with German physicists. Good video overall. I didn't know there were personal locator beacons available. Another choice is aircraft band two ways

    Not inexpensive but all airlines monitor 121.5 mhz for emergencies.

    I thought it pretty good but have not finished it. I have a problem with long videos, especially since they constantly stop and load.

    Interesting to note that in West's videos and this one, the common thread running through it all is that they know something is happening that is not understood. The way these people disappear and are then found (if they are found) either so far away that they could not have gotten there by themselves, or they are found where the searchers had already been and no way could have been missed. Often there is no discernable cause of death and the coroner sometimes makes one up down the road to smooth things over.
