Reports of elderly people disappearing in the blink of an eye, young children vanishing from their mother’s side, and pregnant woman’s bellies going flat as if there was no baby there to begin with. Rayford Steele, commercial airplane pilot, husband, and father, was in the middle of a routine flight when all of a sudden his flight attendant informed him that several of the passengers have disappeared. Rayford, thinking they were just somewhere on the plane, told his flight attendant to keep it quiet and just search the plane.
What the flight attendant found disturbed her. She found absolutely nothing. They were gone. Vanished, 30,000 feet in the air. Alarmed by this she reported it to Rayford and he made an announcement over the intercom calming the remaining passengers, because by this time they began to realize what happened and began to panic.
At the same time this is happening, millions of people across the globe have vanished without a trace as well. What happened? They were here just a second ago and now they are gone. Where on earth could they have gone?
Turns out they aren’t on earth anymore.
