EP. #47: Sam Sayers - North Cascades - Washington

August 1, 2018, 28 year old Samantha Sayers set off on a solo hike of Vesper Peak in the remote North Cascades wilderness of Washington State.  As an experienced hiker who’s traversed this route multiple times, it should have been a routine day hike.  However, Sam was never heard from or seen again.  Sam's disappearance would kick off one of the largest search and rescue operations in state history that ultimately failed to uncover any clues about what happened.  Join us this week as we investigate the disappearance of Samantha Sayers.

EP. #45: Donnell Vista Point Disappearances

The Stanislaus National Forest is located in Tuolumne County California, near the northwestern part of Yosemite National Park. The forest is home to hundreds of miles of streams, rivers, and over a thousand miles of trails.  Yet, just beyond the forests beauty lies a dark and mysterious past.  From 2005 to 2016, three individuals have gone missing, without a trace, at the exact same location; Donnell Vista Point.  Join us this week as we investigate the Donnell Vista Point Disappearances.

 

Correction 1- During the location profile we correctly listed out the wildlife in this area of California.  However, we misspoke further in the episode in regards to Grizzlies in California.  One of the joys of doing the show live is you can't edit or re-record spots you mess up.  One of us asked if there were Grizzlies in this area and the other host replied no but stated there are Grizzlies in other parts of California.  This is incorrect.  There are no Grizzlies in California and there haven't been for decades.  Thank you to our listeners for pointing this out.  

 

Correction 2 - The first subject of the episode was correctly described as moving from over seas to Oklahoma and residing in Nevada at the time of her disappearance.  We correctly mentioned that she originally drove from Nevada to Donnell Vista Point.  However, further in the episode, one of the hosts misspoke and referenced Oklahoma multiple times when he should have said Nevada.  We apologize for the error and again thank our listeners for pointing this out.
