Are Mass Disappearances Actually Mass Alien Abduction?

People disappear never to be found every day. As grim as that sounds, it is a fact and has been that way since the dawn of time. It is perhaps easier to understand how an individual may become lost. Or even how someone could “vanish” at the hands of another. When entire villages or huge groups of people disappear without a clue as to why or where they might have gone, however, it is obvious that something spectacular has occurred.

Do aliens abduct humans in large groups?

What’s more, these dark disappearances of multiple people have happened for hundreds, if not thousands of years. While they could be the result of some naturally occurring phenomena we are simply not aware of let alone know anything about, many researchers have noted reports of “strange lights” at the same time and locations of such bizarre vanishings. It is not too much of a stretch then to imagine such events are mass alien abductions.

If we accept that theory to be true, then the question becomes, what is the purpose of the abductions of entire swathes of people in one go? To some, it is a clear sign that humanity is nothing more than an experiment of extra-terrestrial intelligence. Before we look at that thought a little closer, we will look at one of the most baffling mass disappearances in more detail.

The Anjikuni Vanishing, November 1930

The Nunavut Territory in the most northern of Canada’s territories is also one of the largest. Perhaps not surprisingly it is also one of the least populated parts of the planet. Its harsh, frozen conditions make it a brutal host to human life. Some Inuit communities, however, have called the region home for thousands of years. Much like a small community in 1930 did – until they vanished without a trace.

A fur trapper, Joe Labelle, would make the discovery and bring it to the outside world’s attention. Looking for a place he could rest away from the bitter elements, Labelle sought out the small Inuit village he knew of from previous expeditions. Upon making his way through the settlement, he could see fires were still burning. Over them were the pots of food they were heating through, now morphed into a charred mess. All indications were that the small village was going about their business as usual when they seemingly up and left.

His experience was already telling him something out of the ordinary had taken place. A quick roam around the deserted community would seemingly confirm this. Every last corner of the settlement was devoid of life.

There were, however, no indications of any kind of a prepared journey. All the resident’s possessions, for example, were still in their respective homes. There was no trail to indicate which direction they had gone. Given that the flames of the fires were still present upon his arrival, it would suggest they could only have left a day or two previously at most.

Vanished Into Thin Air?

Despite the increasing unease spreading through him (and he spent much of his time in dark regions of the menacing woodlands so didn’t scare easily), Labelle would go from hut to hut in the hope of finding someone who could explain what had happened. He would find no-one. The entire village was utterly abandoned and empty.

He would make quick checks of the village’s food supplies. Again, all were full with no signs of a predetermined plan to leave. One particular bone-numbing find was that of a child’s sealskin coat with a needle and thread piercing the fabric as though whoever was repairing it simply vanished in the middle of a stitch. Although many Inuit settlements would still roam from location to location from time-to-time, doing so without taking their food and clothing supplies, not to mention all manner of tools and hunting guns, was unheard of. As far as Labelle was concerned, it simply wouldn’t have happened.

Deciding that the same fate may await him should he stay, Labelle would make his way to the nearest telegraph office to report the find. By the time he arrived he was suffering from frostbite, on the point of exhaustion, and in desperate need of food.

A message reached the nearest office of the Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), who several hours later arrived at the telegraph office to speak with Labelle, before venturing on to the apparent ghost-village.

Why do entire communities vanish at once?

Sighting Of Bright Craft Over The Anjikuni Lake

On their way to Anjikuni Lake, the unit would stop for a short rest at the property of a trapper named, Armand Laurent. During their brief stay, he would inform them of strange sightings he and his sons had witnessed only days previously.

According to Laurent, a shining object had raced through the sky over their property. Furthermore, it even changed shape as it did so from a “cylinder to a bullet-shape!” Further still, it was heading in the direction the RCMP unit was heading now, to Anjikuni Lake.

When they arrived at their destination, they would confirm Labelle’s findings. Even more chilling was their additional discovery of the graves of the village’s dead. They had been opened with the bodies removed and seemingly taken with them. This in itself was baffling as the ground around the graves was solidly frozen. How had they managed to penetrate frozen earth so quickly? And why, given they didn’t have time to pack their clothing and food, did they venture to the outskirts of their village to perform this morbid task?

Stranger still was the stone grave markers. These were neatly stacked in two piles close by. It certainly didn’t appear to be the work of grave-robbers, and entirely rules out animal involvement. And if we accept it is a far stretch to imagine the community themselves would have done this, especially given the manner in which they themselves disappeared, combined with the sightings of Laurent and his two sons, the incident would indeed appear to be one of extra-terrestrial involvement. An alien abduction on a massive scale.

The video below looks at this particular incident in more detail.

An Alien Harvesting?

Researcher, Linda Moulton-Howe would describe the encounter as “a harvesting” at the hands of extra-terrestrials. That humans are nothing more than an experiment to them. Whether their intentions were as dark as Howe theorizes, there are plenty of other researchers who subscribe to the notion of not only involvement from extra-terrestrials in human history, but that “the experiment” continues today.

We have written before about the claims and theories of alien-human hybrids. Author, researcher, and professor, David Jacobs, has claimed throughout several books that alien abductions have happened for hundreds, likely thousands of years. Furthermore, the reasons behind this were in preparation to “take over the world” by creating alien-human hybrids.

Are these mass abductions part of that alien mission? As crazy as that sounds, there are many reports from abductees who state they have seen people “stored in rows” as if in some kind of suspended animation. Might they be such people as the Inuit settlement who vanished in 1930? Might such researchers as Moulton-Howe and Jacobs both be right? That such incidents are a harvesting of human vessels for a plan far from beneficial to the human race? Perhaps these mass abductions are for “stock” purposes, while single, targeted, and repeated abductions are for a more specific nature. Either way, the notion is more than bone-chilling, and if true, one that should concern every last one of us.

Long History Of Mass Disappearances

There are many other incidents throughout history of such mass disappearances. For example, in 1587 in what we now recognize as North Carolina in the United States, came the disappearance of the entire Roanoke Colony. This colony was one of the first on American soil. Upon returning from a supply trip to Europe, John White and his one-hundred-strong crew made the discovery.

Maybe even more bizarre is the discovery of the Mary Celeste around 400 miles off the coast of The Azores in the Atlantic Ocean in 1872. The ship was on its way to Genoa, Italy from New York. Not only were all ten of the crew missing, all of the cargo was untouched. This would rule out theft on the open seas by pirates. While there are many theories as to what happened, M.K. Jessop, in his book ‘The Case For The UFO’ would suggest it to be a case of alien abduction. Furthermore, it was suggested the fact the captain’s log was still on board proves that whatever did happen to them, it happened quick and out of the blue (the log should always be taken when abandoning ship).

More recently came the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Its whereabouts and circumstances around its disappearance are still a mystery.

While many people vanish in specific, sometimes remote areas around the world, they tend to disappear while alone. These cases not only feature multiple people seemingly vanishing at the same time, but the location appears to be of little consequence. Almost as if they themselves were targeted as opposed to being the victims of some bizarre and unknown natural phenomena present in a particular location. And what’s more, they were targets en masse.

    I was abducted beginning at the age of 5 in 1945 and continuing until 1970. As a child I was exhausted many mornings having been somewhere else learning something but i could never figure out what. I often was unable to move at night (terrifying) at times and when I was adult and would go back home to visit my parents would have terrible experiences including a threatening figure by the bed. My parents would never listen to me or comfort me. In 1996 I lunched with two sisters who lived downstairs in a four family flat in St. Louis where i grew. I finally asked them if anything strange had happened to them in that building and their reply was, “Oh, you too.” Their mother, a powerful political leader, would never talk with them about what they were experience, only telling them not to tell anyone. Most interesting, much later in life I was at an art exhibit in Milwaukee and in walked a gentleman I recognized immediately as a fellow abductee. I walked up to him and asked if he had a certain mark on his left shoulder. He looked at me and said yes and he recognized me as a fellow abductee. I finally contacted the most respected expert in the field of abduction and he replied immediately and said I clearly had been abducted and that parents not listening to or comforting their children was usual. I still have never forgiven my parents for refusing to listen to me or help me. Miracle of miracles I did end up a famous educator and journalist and person in show business. In 1966 I moved in with a friend so I wasn’t alone at night and he caught on immediately as to what was going on. I was amazed and relieved. When we left Chicago for a suburb the abductions ended.

    Experimenting on humains for some unknown agenda appears as a reasonable explanation for all those alledge abductions !

    But maybe there is a more sinister reason behind those disapearences; if aliens do exist and numerable facts and evidences point very strongly for it!

    then ,what do they eat…!

    Just for the record. Otherwise a good video.

    This is frightening. What about the thousands of children who disappear each year, also?

    The website, says the FBI database, NCIC, lists 464,324 missing children in 2017.

    How many of these children were found?
