Yes. I've been meaning to get this one (and it's eastern 411 companion book). The price however is a bit hefty, so I've held off. They look pretty interesting though.

$89??? $45????
The Eastern book was published in 2012, so I doubt if it's a rare collector's book.
Well, Amazon UK has it for $37 and change, including the air mail fee.

Why so costly, I wonder?

I have had an experience which I will not relate, but I would advise people not to wander into sparsely populated places alone. Yes, some people may have amnesia or some sudden mental condition and there may be some who saw something that they should have and are in a witness protection program, but, just like in the UFO stories, there are some that defy a logical explanation.

Another good book on the subject is "Among the Missing" by Jay Robert Nash, author of "Bloodletters and Bad Men" and "Zanies".

You really ought to at least try to back your post up with something...

Richard Colvin Cox (25 July 1928 – last seen 14 January 1950) was a second-year military cadet whose disappearance from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, in 1950 is still unsolved. He is the only West Point cadet who ever disappeared without being found dead or alive.[1]

I wonder how many are missing and the government has a hand in it or knows the reason for it and stands aside. Just my thoughts.
