Parents of DeOrr Jr were later named suspects after filming of this documtentary. Based on FBI behavioral analysis and multiple failed LTDs, the Lemhi County Sheriff officially named Jessica Mitchell and Vernal DeOrr Kunz as suspects in their son's disappearance. Nothing mysterious about that unless you consider their stories that were continuously changed from one interview to the next. See more »
Intriguing, informative, gripping and beautifully shot documentary
Top notch film that for 90 min gives you a hard, insightful look at just a handful of the thousands of mysterious disappearances you can read about in the 6 mind-blowing Missing 411 books. The vast majority of which happen in our national parks, forests and monuments. Shot in 4k, the footage of the areas of each incident is breathtakingly gorgeous, with a defined undertone of mystery and bewilderment. If you are interested in the unexplained, look no further. The circumstances, once you understand them, can only be summed up as impossible. Les Stroud appears in the film to further reinforce that notion, as he attempts to duplicate the baffling, unlikely journey presented in one of the cases. The case of Jaryd Atadero and the interview with his father, Allyn, I found to be most gripping. As Allyn Atadero relives that fateful day, you can feel the desperation and eventual hopelessness he surely felt, with no reasonable answer for what happened or why.. If your mind isn't racing through the entirety of this feature, you aren't paying close enough attention. You can rest assured this has, since day 1, been a project filled with COMPASSION for the families of the lost, sincere sympathy when the missing are sometimes found deceased, and eagerness to come up with an answer to explain the perplexing circumstances. This is an attempt to bring fresh eyes and a wider audience to the facts surrounding the cases that are happening worldwide to this day, to educate and inform those who enjoy the outdoors. It is not meant to discourage from enjoying nature, but to raise awareness that things can happen in the blink of an eye, and sometimes you just don't get a second chance to take the appropriate precautions.
