They could have been eaten by the vast amount of crocs, killed by scorpions or snakes etc. area is brimming with killer creatures.
Very possible, if this was a small settlement. Also possible some hostile locals from the mainland took them out. The article I located (other link
didn't work for me...) - link
- doesn't say how many
island people disappeared. Have to say, too - love your avatar! Hogan was great fun!
Overall, for the thread, I suspect that the island is feared because of tradition, based on the villagers vanishing, and the explorers not coming
back. Still, it might be a cool place for some group or other to check out. Crocs seems most likely, since they apparently didn't locate any
bodies. Unless....they have a local sea monster, that comes onto land to eat people! Yeah, yeah, I know....but the idea is kinda fun to think about!
