Missing 411
The UFO Connection

After investigating people who have disappeared in the forests and national parks of North America,

David’s research has developed compelling information on the relationship between UFOs with missing people.

A Wyoming hunter disappears and is eventually found with profound physical changes. A Hunting guide tells a story to his girlfriend being followed out of the woods by a UFO in the same forest as the hunter that was abducted.

A massive archive search of this region identifies a series of missing hunters, all were German.

David’s perseverance to uncover facts related to these missing people is an impressive data point in UFO abduction research.

One of David’s hobbies that started him down the path of researching and writing was studying bigfoot. His first book (2008) that was published by Hancock House, The Hoopa Project. The book emanated from a two-year study on the Hoopa Reservation in Northern California. An FBI trained forensic artist was used to interview eyewitnesses to a sighting and draw what the witness observed. The result was a stunning story and pictorial of a biped that few people have ever seen. He followed that with Tribal Bigfoot and Bigfoot, Wild Men and Giants, published in 2019.

David has been on countless radio and television shows and has made his missing person presentation at MUFON chapters across the United States and Australia.
