- Shape : Disk (NUFORC Note: We have contacted a local
newspaper in Northumberland County, and to the police officer who served
as investigator of the case. The newspaper confirms that the incident occurred,
although the police officer stated that the decedant's remains had been
returned to the family, contrary to the claims made by some regarding this
case. The official report will be released in late September, according
to the police officer, and we will attempt to obtain a copy of it. --PD)
- I will be as brief as possible. A man named Todd Sees
was abducted and murdered by aliens on Montour Ridge in Northumberland
County near the town of Northumberland, Pa. This is a big sloppy coverup
if there ever was one.
- Todd Sees, the victim, lived at the foot of Montour Ridge,
a mountain stretching over 20 miles east. Todd Sees went up the mountain
to look for preseason deer. He told his wife that he would be home by
noon. He rode his 4 wheeler up the powerline behind his home at a little
after 5:00 in the morning. Noon came and no Todd. His wife and children
became concerned. At 2:00 a search party was organized and local police,
state police, paramedics, and 200 volunteers helped search for Todd Sees.
- The 4 wheeler was found on the top of the mountain near
a powerline. Tracking dogs could find nothing to go on around the 4 wheeler.
The search went on for 2 days and over 6 miles of mountain were covered
from top to bottom. Todd had vanished with out a trace. The 4 wheeler
was - keep in mind - 2 miles from his home at the foot of the mountain.
A pond a few hundred yards from the house was even searched by skin divers
just so they overlooked nothing. Dogs were over the whole area constantly
no results. No trace.
- Then, in the evening of the 2nd day, something white
was spotted in a large brushy area 25 feet from the pond. Police and rescue
workers spent 20 minutes cutting and hacking brush and small trees so they
could reach what looked like a body. It was Todd Sees. He was wearing
his underwear. He was emaciated - not bloated. He was white. He had an
expression of horror on his face. When he went up the mountain he was
fully-dressed, boots, camo vest, hat, socks, pants.
- The FBI showed up with in 30 minutes (of Todd's discovery
-ed). They took charge. They would not let his wife look at her dead
husband no matter how much she tried. The FBI asked questions around the
area...neighbors, mostly farmers.
- 3 farmers on one farm said they saw a large round bright
object just above thje powerlines at the time of the disappearance. It
was silent, it did not move for about 10 to 15 minutes. It suddenly went
up...and suddenly stopped. A light shined down and something was pulled
up into the light.
- It then went straight up, hesitated again, then went
west over the Susquehanna River and out of sight.
- A police friend of mine said after 2 autopsies, nothing
was found. A toxicology test revealed nothing. No visible cuts or bruises
anywhere except from the brush. Now the body is at Allentown,from there
it is going to Fort Indiantown Gap, Pa. The wife was told she cannot have
the body for 6 to 8 weeks. A boot was found a mile from the 4 wheeler
a few days ago at the top of a tree. It was his. I notice military copters
have been scouring the mountain ever since at least once a day. If you
need additional info for verification on anything contact me. ((name deleted))

- Searchers focus on Montour Ridge missing man
- (Northumberland) - The search resumed this morning for
39-year-old Todd Sees of Northumberland. Police say he left his Point Township
home on his ATV around 5:00 yesterday morning. Point Township Police Chief
Gary Steffan says the family became concerned when he didn't return and
they initially went looking for him. His son found the ATV parked. The
key was gone from the ignition but Sees never turned up.
- Emergency personnel set out on foot around 2:30 yesterday
afternoon, but Chief Steffan said they had to brave some tough elements-very
dense underbrush and snake infested areas. Two rattlesnakes were spotted
underfoot at the staging area in a field along Montour Ridge on the Phil
Geise farm. The state police helicopter was hampered by heavy overgrowth
from the air and dogs were unable to pick up any scent on the ground. One
of the dog handlers suffered a leg injury. The search of 39-year-old Todd
Sees ended around 8:30 last night. Family and friends of Sees continued
their own search until 3 in the morning. Another search began early today.

- Sad conclusion to lengthy search in Point Township
- (Point Township) - An exhaustive search had a sad ending
last night. More than 200 people were involved in the search for a rural
Northumberland man, who was found dead last night near his Point Township
home off of Route 147. 39-year-old Todd Sees was found at about 7:50 p.m.
by family and friends searching the rear of the home. The massive public
search had been curtailed earlier in the evening. Police scuba divers were
checking a nearby pond when Sees' body was found about 150 yards from his
home; he was about 75 yards into a densely wooded and brush-covered area.
- Point Township police chief Gary Steffen said the case
is an 'open investigation' and there were no apparent signs of foul play.
An autopsy is set for today at the Lehigh Valley Medical Center in Allentown.
A state police investigative unit is assisting in the investigation. A
more exhaustive search of the death area will be conducted today. It is
not known yet what caused Sees' death. The Northumberland County Coroner
and District Attorney were on the scene last night along with State Police
and Point Township Police.
- Sees had left his home around 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning
to scout for deer and never returned home. His son, Nick, found his ATV
on Sunday and Sees was reported missing. It started out small, but grew
to over 200 volunteers Monday afternoon, with the majority of the searchers
being volunteer firefighters from the four-county area.
- Dozens of community groups provided food and water for
the volunteers searching and the Red Cross set up a canteen at the Tuckahoe
Fire Company. The volunteers were told about the grim discovery last night
around 9:00 p.m. Those crews were commended for their efforts in the extreme
heat yesterday. (Ali Stevens)

- Toxicology results may shed light on death of a local
- (Sunbury) - The cause of death for a rural Northumberland
man is unknown. An autopsy performed yesterday on 39-year-old Todd Sees
was inconclusive. Northumberland County Coroner James Kelly says toxicology
results should be available in 6-8 weeks. The test will determine if Sees
ingested something that may have killed him. The autopsy found no visible
injuries to the interior or exterior of the body and there was no sign
of foul play. Sees was found Monday night behind his home in thick brush
and trees after more than 200 volunteers searched for two days on Montour
Ridge in Point Township. (Brent Leasure)

- Todd Sees Update: Funds to memorialize Todd Sees
- (Northumberland) - The family of Todd Sees is overwhelmed
by the outpouring of emotion from the community. Todd's wife Sue says they've
received so many cards and flowers that they decided to open a fund in
his memory. Those interested in making a contribution can stop by any SunBank
location and donate to the Norry Acorn Little League Fund in memory of
Todd Sees. Sees disappeared Sunday and his body was found Monday night
following an extensive two day search by over 200 volunteers on Montour
Ridge in Point Township.
- Meantime, Point Township police say they are continuing
to investigate the death of the 39-year-old township resident, who was
first reported missing on Sunday and then found dead near his home on Monday
night. Point Township Police Chief, Gary Steffan, says they conducted a
foot search of the area yesterday, looking for evidence to aid in the investigation.
Today they will be using search dogs to go over the area where Sees's body
was found. Steffan says they are searching for anything that will help
with the investigation. Yesterday, autopsy results on Sees's body came
back inconclusive and showed no injury to the interior or exterior of his
body. It will now take 6 to 8 weeks for toxicology results. (Ali Stevens)

- How toxicology reports help investigators
- (Sunbury) - Investigators hope toxicology testing done
on the body of Todd Sees will shed light on what killed him. An autopsy
performed on Sees was inconclusive and there were no signs of any internal
or external injuries. Northumberland County Coroner James Kelly says a
toxicology test shows whether there were drugs, alcohol, poisons or some
other substances in the body that may have contributed to the death. He
adds that there are rare occasions when the cause of death remains unknown,
even after an autopsy and toxicology test have been performed, but that's
only about one percent of the time. The toxicology results for Sees should
be available in about 5-7 weeks. (Brent Leasure)
