Maykool said he did not know either. But the night he disappeared, there was an urge to run deep in the forest.
"I started running," he said. "I was wearing sandals and I said no, they would slow me down. I threw away the sandals, then the cell phone and my flashlight. And after running so much, I stopped under a tree and I started thinking. What had I done, what was I doing? And when I wanted to get back it wasn't possible."
Ungers said there hadn't been a single forest visitor gone missing over the last fifteen years.
According to the report, locals believe that the lowland in Bolivia is full of mystery and that in that mystical area, mischievous sprite called Duende resides. Any chance that you offend Pachamama, she will call on the Duende to hide you in another dimension. The belief is so strong that even law enforcement recognizes them.
