Whole Town Abducted?

I Found this story, And I find it pretty interesting. I think all of you will too...

In the winter of 1930 an incident took place in Canada.
A trapper named Arnaud Laurent and his son observed a
strange light crossing the northern sky. It appeared to
be heading toward the area of Lake Anjikuni. The trappers
described the object as cylinder shaped or bullet shaped.

Another trapper by the name of Joe Labelle had come into
village of the Lake Anjikuni people, and discovered the
community to be unusually silent without a person moving
in the streets. There was no sound of sled dogs to be
heard. The shanties were covered with snow and not a
chimney showed smoke.

Labelle found the village's kayaks tied up on the shore
of the lake. In the shanties he found meals left hanging
over fires, old and moldy and seemingly abandoned as they
were being cooked. The men's rifles were still in place
standing by the doors. Labelle then became frightened
because he knew that the men would never leave without
their weapons.

He reported this discovery to the RCMP (Royal Canadian
Mounted Police), who investigated what Labelle had seen.
The police discovered that the town's dogs died of hunger,
chained beneath a tree and covered by a snowdrift. What
was even more disturbing was finding that the town graveyard
had been emptied. Despite the frozen ground, the graves had
been opened and the dead removed.

The RCMP continues the case opened to this day. The matter
remains unsolved, and despite a search of all Canada and
inquiries made throughout the world, not one trace of the
missing 1200 men, women and children has ever been found.

Here is the site link that the story was found from.

Oh wow. Now that is an interesting story.

There have been reports over the centuries of people going missing, from individuals vanishing; to whole, fully equipped, 40, 000 man armies; all never to be seen again. This could be another of those cases.

But that light adds a new dimension. In none of the other cases was a 'light' mentioned. What on earth could cause a light like that in 1930? It's not like the government had too many secret aircraft projects going back then.

Just got this from the RCMP website, story is a fake:


The story about the disappearance in the 1930's of an Inuit village near Lake Anjikuni is not true. An American author by the name of Frank Edwards is purported to have started this story in his book Stranger than Science. It has become a popular piece of journalism, repeatedly published and referred to in books and magazines. There is no evidence however to support such a story. A village with such a large population would not have existed in such a remote area of the Northwest Territories (62 degrees north and 100 degrees west, about 100 km west of Eskimo Point). Furthermore, the Mounted Police who patrolled the area recorded no untoward events of any kind and neither did local trappers or missionaries.

yeah really, I would have made the same mistake. (especially the problems I have had with quote tags in the it seems more straight forward.)

So cool sanctum for helping this person out.

Gods peace

I don't know if the story is really fake or not, I double checked that reference to the RCMP and they couldn't say if it did or didn't happen.

Linked in this thread The great vanishing mystery

stated as ahoax however as last poster...

and whole idea of ATS is to find the truth and not accept certainly what any government agency says?
