Missing 411 Special: Dave and Whitley Discuss One of Whitley's Greatest Experiences and Its Frightening Sequel

When Whitley Strieber read the newly revised version of David Paulides' Missing 411, he was profoundly concerned to discover that one of the most mysterious of the cases not only took place within a few miles of his upstate New York cabin, but possibly on the same morning that the visitors asked him to go with them, and he refused.

Of course, it may not have been the same morning and it may not even have been related, but listen as Whitley and David Paulides discuss the case in detail, and draw your own conclusions about one of the most provocative stories ever told on Unknowncountry.com.

Dear Whitley, I love you, I love your interviews - but please, please stop bringing up the Picnic at Hanging Rock as if it were an actual event. Despite the intuition and access to other worlds that the mind of a writer may possess, there is no evidence that the story is literally true. The rock is there but the girls, the mistress, the school - never existed. In fact, Hanging Rock is a very popular destination in Victoria, Australia and I have not found any evidence of strange goings on there. It was apparently once a ceremonial spot for the indigenous people and for that reason may be a powerful star gate accessible to sensitive people but like many such places world-wide does not show a tendency to suck in unsuspecting picknickers on sunny afternoons!

Years ago when I first read about Whitley's encounters, the first thing that came to mind was the old story "Rip VanWinkle" - took place in the Hudson Valley, little people, missing time, etc. But I've always wondered if the cave he speaks of was one of the many ancient stone chambers in that area. Coincidently, I had an altered-state experience in a chamber in Cornwall where I also experienced being unable to express myself verbally afterwards, and have always wondered about that.
