Go! Go! Go!

: Go! Go!

: They've been here before.

Belgium, Osaka, Roswell:

those were recon missions.

They were testing our weakness.

Testing our capabilities.

But Phoenix was different.

: How was it different?

- It was only the beginning.

Come on!

- What the f*ck is going on,


- Jesus Christ, we gotta go!

We gotta go!

- Glenn, come on! Over here!

- Keep going! Go! Go! Go!

Come on!

- Come on, Jake! Come on, Jake!

- Aargh...!

- Come on!

- What the f*ck is going...?

My God...

- Sorry, if I had known

I would've waited.

- Alright, well...

- We got plenty of time.

- You know, we'll go down,

we can get to the other side,

it'll be perfect.

Come on, come on, come on.

Pick it up, Jesus Christ.

Ryan! Let's go! Come on!

- You comin'?

- Cue to John Williams.

- Wow!

- Right?!

- Wow!

- You know how we're going down,

right, Jake?

- Put Ryan on Jake's back,

push Jake down the side.

- You've done this before,

right? Just sliding?

- ...ride you like an alpaca,


I'm serious, you could do it.

You go first.

Come on, go first, you can.

- Wait! Camera! Camera, camera,

camera, camera!

: Four Phoenix area

residents are missing tonight

after a local camping trip

in the Estrella Mountains.

- Despite the efforts

of the Arizona County Rescue

and the AHP,

officials continue

to scour the area

by ground and in the air,

but have found no sign

of the missing hikers.

The men were all experienced

riders, and were in good health.

- Susan Lauder hasn't heard

from her son Glenn

since Thursday morning

around 11 a.m.

- March 14th, 1997,

authorities recover

an abandoned ATV

belonging to 28-year-old

Glenn Lauder.

His food and water supplies are

found less than 50 feet away,

but Glenn is nowhere

in the area.

- ...that provided

the first real clues

as to what may have happened

to the four missing riders

on March 14th.

- The individual committing

these abductions was

extremely methodical. The

location of the disappearance

has led us to believe this was

the work of a lone perpetrator,

operating in a specific part

of the desert.

- New evidence

has come to light

linking the unexplained


of four missing Arizona hikers.

- Sheriff's Officials arrest

Walton S. Gayson,

a retired Veteran

and religious fanatic,

with a long history

of confrontations with police.

- The Phoenix District

Attorney's Office says

Gayson was involved

in a fourth aggravated assault,

where he attacked a Maricopa

County Sheriff's station.

- Chilling testimony

from Walton S. Gayson,

now the prime suspect

in what investigators believe

may be a four-person homicide.

Gayson, seen...

: During

interrogation, Gayson confesses

he witnessed

the men's abduction,

but insisted the men were

taken by non-terrestrial beings.

: But before Gayson

can stand trial,

Gayson is taken

into Federal custody,

and all information

in the case is confiscated.

- Investigators from the FBI

will be reviewing the evidence

and will be making a statement

in the coming weeks. Thank you.

- Gayson absolutely committed

these murders,

there's no question

in my mind.

It's like we were being

sabotaged by our own country.

- You think this was

a conspiracy?

- Absolutely. Something happened

out there in the desert.

- What do you think happened?

- We got too close

to something much bigger;

the military

didn't want us to know.

- You're aware that,

by giving this interview,

they could come after you

and your family?

- Yeah, I know, I know.

- Okay, you ready to do this?

- Yeah, let's go.

- In 1997, you took part
