Daily 2 Cents: Entity Light Anomaly? -- Bigfoot in Bunker, Missouri -- Why Alien Abductions Are Down Dramatically

Entity Light Anomaly?

I recently received the following information:

Hi Lon,
My girlfriend who lives in Hollywood, Florida sent me these photos she took yesterday, June 13. I know they are very blurry, but you can definitely see some kind of light anomaly. In her words "Can you see the friend that was visiting me? If you look closely and you look at the ground it's about 4 inches before the closet and touching the floor so it's not a reflection of the closet." DD


UFO Followed Me

Paula in Troy, Illinois called in to tell of her bizarre UFO sighting:

We had an experience. I guess it was about four or five years ago right in the Maryville area. Of course, you know it's between the St. Louis / Lambert airport and the Air Force base. Every morning, at around the same time, I would go out and start the car for work. It was around 5 AM in the morning. My husband would follow after. And one morning I went out there and it felt like somebody was just watching me. And not long after that, I saw a thin blue light shining down upon our street, right in front of where we live. We live right off south route 159. And it looked like it was following the street. And we kept, we watched it. I had a funny feeling. I don't think my... I don't know how to describe it but it just felt like somebody was watching me. We heard no airplane, no engine, no helicopter. Nothing. And as you probably very well know, there's a lot of air traffic. So we got in our car and the light, like I said, it followed right in front of our street and then it started following on route 159... Not very long, maybe five minutes, and then it was gone. And for years I have wondered what it was. I have often wondered, was it something from the Air Force. But in my mind, I'll go back... I didn't hear anything. For years, I wondered what it was. I looked on the internet, of course, it's got the blue beam thing, but it didn't seem like it was that kind of blue beam. It was like it was mapping the streets or something. I just felt like it was watching me. And then when my husband come out, he saw it too. So it's not that I saw it and nobody else did. It seemed like followed our car just a tiny bit. We were headed north on 159 toward Edwardsville and then suddenly it was gone. It wasn't like a blink. It was like somebody turned it off like a light switch.”

Bigfoot in Bunker, Missouri

Throughout the forests, crags and caves of the Ozarks a legend has been whispered among those brave enough to reside in Missouri’s vast southern expanse. For centuries, it’s been said something strange lives in the wilderness, something which our modern world struggles to explain. Today, that legend is spreading beyond the traditional confines of the bonfire, and local residents are speaking out that Bigfoot may call our countryside home.

“I know Bigfoot is out in the woods because I’ve seen him with my own eyes,” says local resident David Prater of Salem. “You likely won’t see one unless you’re on horseback, and you’re willing to ride all day through forest, but you’ll find them if you’re patient enough.”

Prater is one of Dent County’s most senior Bigfoot trackers. He cut his teeth hunting the creature on horseback in the 1970s in the area around his native Round Spring. Prater says growing up in Shannon County, the mysterious beast was called “The Blue Man of the Mountains.”

The closest Prater says he ever came to the Blue Man was in the vicinity of Big Creek southwest of Bunker.

“Back in the ‘70s I used to track Bigfoot on horseback,” Prater says. “One day I came across one along the creek bank. It was squeezing a hedge apple in its hand and letting the juice run down its face. They’re that strong. I gave chase, but it ran into a large nearby sinkhole where I think a couple more were hiding. My horse was too scared and there was a strong foul odor emitting from the hole, so I didn’t go in to see for myself.”

Prater says he can affirm that in the sunlight a bluish hue appears as a halo around its short, dark curly hair. He also says that in his experience, the Shannon County Bigfoot tends to shadow the movements of the wild horses in the area.

“I think they use the horses as sounders, so if something startles the horses they will know there’s trouble and take off into the woods, too,” Prater says.

Stories like Prater’s are not unique for Salem's Dr. Emmett Reary.

“I am a skeptic by nature. What I am interested in are what the facts are,” Reary says. “Once you start looking into things like this, you cannot believe the amount of evidence you start to come across.”

Reary inadvertently became Dent County’s Bigfoot investigator after he decided to begin documenting mountain lion sightings to refute the Department of Conservation ‘s official line that they don’t live in Missouri.

“I wrote an article in the paper asking anyone who’d seen a mountain lion to contact me. Well, what happened is I started getting more calls from people saying they’d seen Bigfoot,” Reary says.

Since he began documenting these Bigfoot sightings, Reary says he’s recorded more than 100 cases in this region of the Ozarks.

“The Mark Twain National Forest is a very active area, especially around Bunker and Boss, there seems to be a lot of sightings coming from that area,” Reary says.

During his investigations, Reary says he’s found Bigfoot tracks as well as deer blinds allegedly used by the beast to hunt, and what appear to be ground shelters made of crossed boughs with long grass stacked on top.

One of the most noteworthy occurrences Reary says he recorded took place outside of Bunker on forested private property.

The Bigfoot encounters began at that location after the property owner found a recently slain deer with its head wedged into the fork of a tree 15 feet off the ground during a tour of his land via an all-terrain vehicle. Upon finding the odd sight, the discoverer went to retrieve a camera and his wife, only to return and spot that the deer was now missing.

The suspended deer carcass was a harbinger of things to come.

The property’s ATV trails soon began to be blocked by large logs which required tractors to move. Strange sounds then started coming from the woods, and rocks could to be heard at night hitting the metal roof of the home, Reary says.

During a subsequent visit to the property, two teenage grandchildren claimed they were chased by a Bigfoot while riding around on ATVs. Another visitor also said they saw a Bigfoot while weed eating, describing the creature as at least seven feet tall.

“A common situation I hear is someone moving into an area where a home or trailer wasn’t before and something in the woods responding to their presence,” Reary says.

In a separate case closer to Salem, Reary says he was contacted by a rural property owner living north of Salem who began hearing knocks on his house after dark. Soon after, wooden 4X4s cemented into the ground were found broken in half, and a metal pipe clothes line was found bent by an unexplained incredible force.

In one of the most significant instances, large handprints were discovered one morning on the homeowner’s garage door.

After investigating the scene, Reary found a logging operation was taking place not far from the strange occurrences. Reary also talked to neighboring property owners who reported seeing a dark figure in the woods, and smelling foul odors from unknown sources. Photographs of the handprints were then sent by Reary to be examined by a number of experts, including a twice published Bigfoot researcher. They reported the prints elongated fingers indicated it was a Bigfoot of the southern variety as opposed to the short-fingered northerners.

“The Missouri Ozarks is a mysterious place, a lot of odd stuff happens here. It just might be that the world we see is not the world as it really is,” Reary says. “The truth is out there, and we just have to keep searching for it and following the evidence.”

Despite what reads as scary details, Reary says he does not believe residents are in any danger.

“In all the cases I’ve documented I have never talked to someone who was attacked or felt like their lives were threatened,” Reary says. “I think there’s something out there which is just as curious about us as we are of them.” - Bigfoot in Bunker? The search is on


Why alien abductions are down dramatically

Denise Stoner was 2½ years old the first time she remembers the alien taking her. She was at home in Hartford with her grandfather. Her mother was at the hospital giving birth to her younger sister. She remembers staring out a large picture window and seeing an egg-shaped object in the sky, hovering over some power lines. “What’s Humpty Dumpty doing up in the sky?” she asked. She remembers the fear in her grandfather’s face when he suggested it was time for bed.

Later that night, as she lay staring at her nursery rhyme-themed wallpaper, an entity walked through her wall. “He looked like a monk, he had a robe, and he was carrying a light. I wasn’t afraid of him,” she said. “He put out his other hand for me to take it, and I did. We walked out into the hallway.” The alien pointed his light at the wall, and they disappeared through it; she remembers being in a large, dome-shaped room with a lot of other children, and they seemed to be learning something. In the morning, she was back in her bed.

Since then, she says, she has been taken more than 50 times, from her home, from the street, from her car, the last time only three years ago, driving through the mountains in Colorado. Each time, it’s the same being responsible. “He looks like your typical gray [alien], but he’s one of the tall ones. It’s just the very subtle shape of his face, his chin is a little wider,” she explained. She calls him her escort. “There’s no friendship. . . . He comes to get me, and I know I’m going to be safe,” she said. “He’s also going to oversee whatever is done.” Read more at Why alien abductions are down dramatically
