Mysterious Disappearance of Young Boy at McCloud Falls Adds to the Aura of Mt. Shasta

Mount Shasta is known for its natural beauty, along with its spooky reputation of paranormal activity. Many visitors have shared stories of their spooky encounters and experiences in the area. This story is no exception.

It all started in September of 2011 when a 3-year-old boy and his dog had wandered away from his family at the Fowler’s campground at McCloud Falls, just down the hill from Mt. Shasta. As soon as his family realized he was missing, they contacted the local authorities. Soon, everyone from the sheriff’s department to the volunteer firefighters were on a desperate search for the boy.

The toddler’s dog was found early on in the search, but the condition it was found in didn’t exactly leave the search team hopeful. The dog was soaking wet and had been found curled up and shivering on the banks of a river full of dangerous rapids.

As the night grew longer and darker, some worried that the young child had been swept up by the river and pulled under by the water’s undercurrent. But miraculously, with the help of a canine partner, the boy was found hiding in a bush at 12:45 a.m.

The story was heralded as a major search and rescue success. Local news reports covered it extensively, and the nearby McCloud River Lodge offered free hot meals to everyone who participated in the community effort.

But according to people close to the event, the mystery began after the boy was located, and it added to the weird instances recorded in the Mount Shasta area throughout history.

Three weeks after the incident, the boy shocked his grandmother when he told her a strange tale. “I don’t like my other grandma,” he said.

“What are you talking about, buddy? I’m your only grandma.” she replied.

“Don’t you remember when I was lost in the woods?” He replied. “Well, the other grandma grabbed me and took me to a creepy place. She’s really a robot.”

The boy described the place as a cave with spiders, where there were purses and guns. He claimed he was too scared to touch anything. The boy then said that the woman made him lie down and look at his tummy. She told him he was from outer space, and that he was placed in his mother’s tummy. The boy claimed that the woman then took him back to the river and told him to wait under a bush until someone found him.

The boy’s real grandmother promptly called his parents to report the strange story, but his father dismissed it as just the product of a young child’s overactive imagination.

The story of this boy’s disappearance has set the internet on fire for years as people attempt to include it with the many stories of paranormal activity surrounding Mt. Shasta. Was this boy talking about a strange being living underground in the area, or just another instance of overreaction from the internet?
