I watched this last week and found it interesting.
I did like it but a couple of the cases were a bit daft, the one case of an 82 year old who was blind in one eye and half deaf, going missing whilst out on his own? He may have been an avid outdoors man but come on, he was an old fella, it could have been caused by a number of health problems, if he had just stumbled, bones break easy at that age.
But some of the cases are just out right strange and do leave you scratching your head.
Also during many interviews with Mr Paulides he said that he didn't want to point the finger at any particular reason for people going missing, but with the "samurai chatter" included it seemed a bit obvious. Why doesn't he just come right out and say it, otherwise why have that segment on the movie?
But if you do have an interest in his books, it's worth a watch.

Alot of the older people don't look like they could be trafficked for anything--sex, labor, whatever. What would you think they'd be trafficked for? Just curious.
**in edit** I'm just being silly. That doesn't seem too plausible.

The Indiginous People learned this to after many conflicts....thats why they began using Totem Poles....and didnt wander around aimlessly exploring for the fun of it.

This seems like a really good fit for drones.
Certainly, there ares some crafty fleet drone orgs out there.
A mission that keeps revolving surveillance. Even enter caves briefly.
Drones using LIDAR can certainly navigate trees below the canopy.
A bite pricey, but heh... not much more to do right now. Perhaps a good go-fund-me op.
Organizational skills required.

Between suicides and Assasinations and Murders and Human Trafficing we can see organized use of our National Forests and Protected areas....someone has designated them as go-to areas for nefarious works.....and there are many types of nefarious use.....satanic child trafficers loose ends drug dealers money launderers corporate murders for Insurance and business reasons Secret Societies demoting underperformers to whistleblower killings....easiest place in the world to commit a homocide and cover it up permanently.
We are constantly and consistently put in positions where conventional Investigative problem solving doesnt work or goes to a defined SOP area then ceases or becomes difficult to adhere to.....like the perps know the systems and processes and the limits of these things and consistently use this knowledge to hinder or prevent Investigations.

I've been all over the Smokies from Northeast Tennessee to the Georgia line,all over the Sierra's and San Bernardino mountains, Mojave, Yellowstone and still have never seen one bit of evidence that Bigfoot exists.Did hear something once that I couldn't ID.I saw bears,bobcats, cougars,heck,even a Ivorybill woodpecker once .There is one thing I definitely believe is out there- big cats.I have seen tracks that could be a released big cat a few times,if one of those decided to grab you there's not going to be a lot of evidence left.All that said,most disappearances are likely from accidents and people.The Ted Bundy's of the world are far and away the deadliest predator out there.

You should look into missing 411 more deeply before trying to explain it away as nothing.
There's cases where toddlers are lost and found hours later, alive, miles away in very rugged terrain that would be impossible for a fit adult to traverse in that time.
If you want to write it off as big cats or bears there would be signs of struggle, blood, clothes...maybe most importantly scent.
A common denominator is the dogs can never pick up a scent...explain that? And another commonality is people not having shoes on when they are found/come to, and rain.
So anyone ready to explain it away like a bear ate them or they fell off a cliff needs to explain why the dogs can't track it. Or why toddlers traverse 10 miles in a few hours in rugged mountain terrain with no shoes.
