On October 24th, 1593, a soldier reported for palace duty in Manila, Philippines, and instantly became aware that his uniform set him apart from everyone else. He suddenly realised that he was actually in Mexico City, Mexico.During interrogation the soldier said that he had been instructed that very morning to report to the palace in Manila, adding that the governor of the Philippines had been killed the night before.
The Mexican authorities put him in jail, but two months later it was confirmed that the Philippine governor had indeed been murdered in Manila on the night before the soldier suddenly appeared. The soldier was then allowed to return back to Manila, over 2000 miles away!
In Perleberg, Germany, on November 25th, 1809, 25 year old diplomat Benjamin Bathurst and his valet stopped at an inn for the night, after travelling from diplomatic services during the French/Austrian war. A witness at the inn reported that Bathurst seemed to be very nervous and had asked for guards to protect him against mysterious pursuers.
In the middle of the evening as his coach was leaving, Bathurst went out into the otherwise deserted street, walked around the horses.......and disappeared.
Owen Parfitt had been paralyzed by a massive stroke. In June, 1763 in Shepton Mallet, England, Parfitt sat outside his sister's home, as was often his habit on warm evenings. Virtually unable to move, the 60-year-old man sat quietly is his nightshirt upon his folded greatcoat. Across the road was a farm where workers were finishing their workday by pooking the hay. At about 7 p.m., Parfitt's sister, Susannah, went outside with a neighbor to help Parfitt move back into the house, as a storm was approaching. But he was gone. Only his folded greatcoat upon which he sat remained. Investigations of this mysterious disappearance were carried out as late as 1933, but no trace or clues to Parfitt's fate were ever uncovered.
The year was 1815 and the location a Prussian prison at Weichselmunde. The prisoner's name was Diderici, a valet who was serving a sentence for assuming his employer's identity after he died from a stroke. It was an ordinary afternoon and Diderici was just one in a line of prisoners, all chained together, walking in the prison yard for the day's exercise. As Diderici walked with his prison inmates to the clanking of their shackles, he slowly began to fade - literally. His body became more and more transparent until Diderici disappeared altogether, and his manacles and leg irons fell empty to the ground. He disappeared into thin air and was never seen again.

In the Bahamas, on August 17th, 1840, the merchant ship 'Rossini' was discovered completely abandoned, it's cargo of wines, fruits and silks still intact and in perfect condition, the captain's papers and log all secure in their proper places, the only living things on board being a cat, some chickens and several canaries, half dead from starvation.
In the mid Atlantic, on February 28th, 1855, the ship 'James B Chester' was found totally abandoned and in fine condition. When boarded it was found that the compass and the ship's papers were gone and also signs that personal belongings of the crew had been hastily gathered from drawers and cupboards. The strange thing was that all the lifeboats were still on board without showing any signs that an attempt was made to use them.
In Australia, in March 1848, explorer Ludwig Leichhardt led an expedition to cross the huge central desert. Leichhardt, his men and over 70 pack animals were never seen again. In 1975, nearly 130 years later, Zac Mathias, an Australian ranger came across some photographs showing aboriginal paintings of white men with their pack animals, painted about the same time that Leichhardt had gone missing. Mathias organised an expedition to find these cave paintings but just before the expedition was to begin, Mathias himself disappeared, never to be seen again.
Writer John Keel theorized that many alleged paranormal disappearances might be the result of tears in the fabric of reality, with people or objects somehow passing through a hole out of our known set of dimensions and into another, causing them to become out of step with our world in terms of time or space, and thus causing them to appear to vanish.  Keel's perspective is shared by Hungarian writer Nandor Fodor, who related the phenomena to alleged incidents of teleportation, and loosely described the process as "falling into the fourth dimension".

(Paranormal) the reality of that being the truth is slim to none.

10,000,000 go missing every year? That's 30% of the US population. I can't believe that is correct. Has anyone collaborated that statement? It sounds a bit farfetched to me.

This all started after a UFO encounter I had in September. I live in the twilight zone now just trying to figure out where I am being taken and why.
I firmly believe that many people who dissapear are entering another dimension. During one of these trips I knew that I had seen Fossett.
