Yes, the child could have left and been taken by a person or mountain lion, but, with his father being an experienced search and rescue worker along with the 100+ people that joined the search, they would have found evidence of an attack or something to indicate which way the boy went.
To me the parents are highly suspect in this case. The mother admitted to hitting the kid, she was mad. The father would know how to hamper SAR personnel. It might have been an accident but they feared repercussions. Hard to think about, but seems more plausible.
The story is weird too. Who hunts for only 15 minutes? Who leaves their kids asleep in a place like that? How could she see him after she'd been walking 15 minutes? Sketchy.

No. I don't have an example handy. Would have to go through the 2 of his books I have again . . . taking a lot of time I don't have . . . or listening to hours of his C2C shows . . . Sigh.
I just recall them because they struck me as soooo VERY starkly an example of high strangeness to use LMH's term.

Heres a thought, to set the scene yesterday a mother in Victoria was charged with killing her daughter after claiming a man of African descent took the baby while she was out taking the baby for a stroll. The story fell apart and now the mother has been charged.
Kids who are not normal functioning may be seen as a burden to the parents as the above case shows and I find it probable that if the case of the 2 year old going missing is similar its quite possible the parents did kill the child and covered it up. As for others its quite possible people who go missing were in fact murdered by friends or relatives and the Forrest story is easily used to insinuate a bear or mountain lion was involved. The no tracks is because the individual wasn't there in the first place.
Once again solved without the need for the paranormal or esoteric.
Playing devils advocate, if they searched for 15 minutes without a sign of the child, wouldn't you want to have more people with equipment helping you to search?

As a young man I worked as a surveyor for the USGS working in national parks, BlM land and Indian rez. The stories told to me by the forest rangers would astonish you. I hold some credence to DP's stories concerning the paranormal explanation.
