Bigfoot: Missing in Nat'l Parks - Dave Paulides Book MISSING 411...
The "wildmen" that the reporter alluded to were reported by retired NPS ranger Dwight McCarter, something that was left out of this story.
McCarter stated that "Wild Men", meaning men who have lived in the forest and don't live by any laws had attacked a ranger in the past and was never captured.
also acknowledged that Dennis Martin may have been abducted.
This was confirmed by McCarter
yet this key element isn't contained in this story.
The FBI on scene made the determination that this sighting wasn't relevant, yet McCarter states that the timing and distance make is possible that this could've been Dennis-another item that the reporter didn't include in his article.
Why would the FBI
make the decision on this important event inside a National Park, McCarter
was equally confused about why they didn't follow-up on this event.
There is NOT one mention of bigfoot in the eastern version of "Missing 411", or in our presentation.....The attempt to make the "wild men" that McCarter
spoke about something bigfoot related is an abomination and insult to Dwight McCarters 30 plus years in the park service.
