Dave Paulides received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of San Francisco, and, has a professional background that includes twenty years in law enforcement and senior executive positions in the technology sector. In 2004 he formed North America Bigfoot Search-NABS (www.nabigfootsearch.com) where his investigative and analytical experience were invaluable in researching Bigfoot/Sasquatch sightings, encounters and behavior. He spent two years living among the Hoopa tribal members, listening to and recording their Bigfoot stories. The Hoopa Project is his first book, based upon his experiences in the Bluff Creek area of Northern California. David's second book, Tribal Bigfoot is a quantum step forward in Bigfoot research and allows for a common sense understanding of this elusive biped. These two books have been called the new standard for crypto research. NABS was also the group that started the Bigfoot DNA project which was instrumental in the identification of bigfoot/sasquatch as its own species.
In 2011 a tip from National Park Rangers about missing people started research into the topic and the eventual formation of the Can Am Missing Project. This information eventually led to David authoring the Missing 411 books.
On July 26, 2016 David released his sixth book, "Missing 411-Hunters the story of hunters who have disappeared in the wilds of four different countries. The stories are baffling, disturbing and mind bending. These disappearances bring the total of missing geographical clusters in North America to 59.
Mr. Paulides was an invited speaker at the 2012 National Association of Search and Rescue (NASAR) annual conference in South Lake Tahoe. The presentation was on the findings of the Can Am Project that were detailed in "Missing 411." The packed room at the Harvey's Convention Center heard Mr. Paulides give a detailed overview of the geographical clusters of missing people and the associated elements found within the clusters. This 6+ year 12000 hour investigation into unexplained disappearances in isolated locations is research that anyone who walks in the woods should read.
Since the release of the "Missing 411" series, Mr. Paulides has been a guest on countless radio shows, morning television and prime time news. The 411 series has been vetted by some of the finest Search and Rescue professionals, investigative journalists, radio and television hosts and print journalists from North America. The presentation of the materials in Missing 411 have been presented worldwide. You can follow current missing cases and the investigations by David and his team at www.canammissing.com
