I know for a fact that this kind of thing occurs. There's an interesting although troubling video on YouTube regarding 30,000 people missing/disappearing every year. This number doesn't include runaways, recovered murder victems, or anyone later found. It is an investigation done by retired homicide detective and now MUFON investigator Butch Witkowski. His investigation also covers several cases of human mutilation including autopsy reports and other very credible evidence.
LMAO, MUFON generates the most preposterous, unsubstantiated stories the world has ever seen...

NFN but the USGS documented in 1971 the origin of the brown mountain lights:

Origin of the Brown Mountain light in North Carolina

But MUFON and the TRUE BELIEVERS continue to prey on peoples gullibility...

Do people research what they are fed by their favorite conspiracy/UFO web site??? ~DUH~ As long as it fits with their preconceived ideals h*ll no...

Hey, my substantiated scientifically accredited website is:

AboveTopSecret.com - Conspiracy Theories, UFOs, Paranormal, Politcs, and other "alternative topics" - home page for Thursday, April 9, 2015



I see some people here quote Internet blogs as THE TRUTH, I rest my case...

Website for a group investigating the Brown Mountain Lights:

The Brown Mountain Lights

They have two cameras set up monitoring for anomalies. Videos from these cameras are available for your viewing pleasure on Daniel Caton's Youtube channel, here:

Has anyone stopped to think that this myth is perpetuated by the people and businesses of Brown County for their economic well being?

TRUE BELIEVERS should (but we know won't) take the time to read in it's entirety the USGS report.

Methinks relating to the OP some readers here have seen the movie Alien Abduction one to many times...

As a kid, I spent weeks every summer just down the road from a viewpoint for the Brown Mountain Lights. We used to go in the evening sometimes to try and see them: never did. Summer wasn't the best time though, so maybe that's why we didn't. I remember the excitement of hoping to see them, but getting bored pretty quickly when they didn't show up. Patience was not one of my childhood virtues.

Never heard of people going missing, and as a kid would've been scared had that rumor been around. Grew up in a community not far from the lights. There was zero fear concerning the lights, just curiosity and mystery.

Heres the end for those that want the explanation:

'In summary it may be said that the
Brown Mountain lights are clearly not
of unusual nature or origin. About 47
percent of the lights that the writer
was able to study instrumentally were
due to automobile headlights, 33 percent
to locomotive headlights, 10
percent to stationary lights, and 10
percent to brush fires. "
