A mysterious national park in California has seen 11 people go missing, as well as sightings of Bigfoot and aliens.
Warning: don’t put this one on your bucket list of places to visit before you die, because, well, you might not make it to the rest of your agenda.
The park in question is Mount Shasta, California, and on the surface it looks like a pretty picturesque park. There are snow-topped mountains, towering trees, and a whole lot of mystery.
Let’s start with the disappearances: all 11 are unsolved and the surrounding area, Siskiyou County, now has a cold case team dedicated to solving them.
County Sheriff Jeremiah LaRue said of the group: “It is a fairly new team but we are excited. It will specifically address these types of cases.”
So, who exactly went missing? The list includes Angie Fullmer, who went missing just 10 days before Christmas, when she took a drive through the park with her boyfriend and was never seen again.
Next up is Karin Mero, who disappeared from the area way back in February 1997. Since there was a warrant out for Karin’s arrest, forces initially thought she might’ve fled.
However, when another girl, Hannah Zaccaglini, disappeared in June of the same year, people began to question these strange happenings. Karin and Hannah knew a lot of the same people, and given that they disappeared from the same area just months apart, you can understand why people started questioning the park.
In May of 2020, Davohnte Morgan was visiting the park with his girlfriend when he disappeared. The pair had an argument while staying in the area, so his girlfriend went for a walk to cool off. While out and about she passed Davohnte, also out walking, and he was never seen again.
Others that disappeared from the area include Rocky Ramirez, Marie Louise Andrus, Phillip Verne Deshayes, Betty Jane Lobush, Ray Ranaldo Martin, Grace Sabots, and Rosemary Kunst.
The disappearances are only the beginning of the story, because Bigfoot has apparently been spotted several times in the area, as well as potential UFO sightings.
Safe to say we’re not planning a road trip through Mount Shasta any time soon.
