150 mapas de la desaparición forzada de personas en Colombia - Desaparición Forzada en Colombia
A crime so opaque, with so many conceptual and legal edges and so wrapped up in the "night and fog" invites to multiply the efforts of diffusion and sensitization that help to fight it. In general, maps are excellent tools to reveal and visualize complex events, so we take full advantage of these characteristics. That's why we usually map all existing sources and not limit ourselves to just one.

In addition, we wanted that anyone can know the magnitude of this crime against humanity in each of the municipalities of Colombia . Labeling each of the municipalities and victims of enforced disappearance can not be done on a single map (unless it is huge!). One of the ways to solve the problem is from the preparation of departmental maps , where you can identify each of its municipalities and people who have been victims of this crime. It is not easy to get in all departments, but we have not hesitated to sacrifice the composition and readability of some maps in order to appreciate the name of each municipality and the total of victims in it. That is the case, for example, of the maps of Antioquia , which is the department with the largest number of municipalities and also victims of enforced disappearance.

We are currently developing 7 maps of each department, although it is more than likely that we incorporate some more ...

'Evaporated people' are disappearing from Japanese society - Business Insider
One man that Mauger and Remael met said it was his job to move these johatsu to faraway towns and cities during the 1990s. He and others like him called themselves a "night movers." It was their job to shuttle people to new, undisclosed locations under the cover of darkness. According to PRI, the 1990s were a booming time for such night moves. The economy had just crashed, and many people were looking for a way out.

Final Boss Form — faeralyn: Metsänpeitto is a phenomenon found in...
"Metsänpeitto is a phenomenon found in Finnish folklore. It was used to describe people or domestic animals who went missing in nature for unexplained reasons.

People “covered by forest” were described as not being able to recognize the terrain around them, even if they were on familiar grounds. In other cases they might have walked endlessly through unfamiliar terrain, or were rendered completely paralyzed, unable to move or speak. Unnatural silence devoid of the sounds of nature was also common.

People or animals under the influence of the phenomenon were described as becoming either completely invisible to other people, or looking like part of the nature around them, like a rock. In one story a man had been looking for a missing cow for days. When he finally gave up and returned to his work, the first tree stump he struck with his axe transformed back into his cow.

The cause behind metsänpeitto was usually credited to maahinens, who were small humanoid creatures living underground (usually translated to English as “gnomes”). Some people managed to free themselves from metsänpeitto by their own means, for example by turning their jacket inside out, by switching their shoes to the wrong feet, or by looking between their own legs. This was because of the idea that everything was topsy-turvy in the lands of the maahinens. Some were released seemingly without reason, others only after being sought after by a shaman. Some were never seen again."
