This past month we helped to organize the first ever Mile High Mystery Conference down in Denver. The reviews we received were very positive, and we had a number of well-known speakers, including “Survivorman” Les Stroud, David Paulides (Missing 411) and John Greenewald (The Black Vault). They covered topics that ranged from Bigfoot research, to UFO sightings in the San Juan Valley (highest number of sightings anywhere in the country), and of course missing people. Without a doubt, the most emotionally gut-wrenching talk was by Allyn Atadero, who’s 3-year old son Jaryd disappeared in 1990 while on a hike in near Poudre Canyon above Fort Collins. Not only did he disappear under mysterious circumstances, but four years later his clothes, shoes and skull cap were discovered 500 vertical feet up a cliff that overlooks the trail where he disappeared. The local Sheriff declared that Jaryd was the victim of a mountain lion attack, but three separate cougar hunters all agreed that Jaryd’s clothing and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance make a mountain lion attack highly unlikely. There were a number of very bizarre details surrounding Jaryd’s death, and until today no one knows exactly what happened to him that fateful day 18 years ago. Of course, there was speculation that Jaryd was abjucted by a pedophile, but again the circumstances just don’t lend themselves to this scenario. For reasons that remain unclear, the local Sheriff at the time seemed to be doing everything possible to stall or hinder the investigation, even to the point of threatening to arrest Allyn if he caught him on the trail looking for Jaryd. Totally bizarre. So, if it wasn’t a lion, nor a pedophile – then who kidnapped and killed Jard Atadero? If all other logical conclusions are ruled out, and it is clear that Jaryd was snatched and carried away – then Sasquatch has to be considered as a suspect. I believe that there IS a cover-up within the Parks Service to ignore (or conveniently “forget”) that thousands of people have disappeared from national parks nation-wide over the past 50 years. AND, that they know that Sasquatch not only exists, but is actually responsible for a percentage of those who disappear every year from Yosemite, Yellowstone, and dozens of other parks around the U.S. I have seen evidence that the Parks Service is collecting reports of Bigfoot sightings from forest rangers, and probably has been for many years. I believe they’re afraid to let this information out in the general public, as it could negatively affect tourism, the lumber trade, etc etc. I am truly not a conspiracy theory guy normally, but there are just too many strange things going on in our national parks that I cannot deny any longer that a cover-up is going on. In conclusion, go and enjoy our many beautiful national parks – just don’t go alone.
