People go missing all the time and for various reasons. In our age of digital technology the police can just use the “find my phone” app in most cases, and the stranded kid or teen will be found in no time. But what if a whole village or city would simply vanish in a single moment, or even worse – an entire civilization? There’s a chance that all of these mass disappearances have a logical explanation, but the circumstances are incredibly bizarre to say the least.
Here are 5 mysterious cases of mass disappearances that will send chills down your spine.
1. Flannan Isles Lighthouse Keepers, 1900
It’s the year 1900, December 15. No light is coming out of the lighthouse on the Flannan Isles. A small crew of volunteers decides to investigate this mystery. 11 days later they came back to the main ship and reported that the three lighthouse keepers – Thomas Marshall, James Ducat, and Donald McArthur – were nowhere to be found. No bodies, no nothing. Eventually the captain proposed a theory that all three of them must have blown over the cliffs or drowned.
