- June 25th, 2011
I woke up out of a deep, restful sleep by my phone. Looked at the caller ID.
I said:" Hello Kathy."
Kathy:" Morning, how are you and my ole man doing?"
I said:" Doing just hunky-dorey."
Kathy:" Good, since it is the weekend, the Admiral called the Secretary of the Interior, the park is closed until further
notice, by the way your helicopter is landing in the parking lot."
I said:" Thanks, I hear it, gotta go."
Gibbs and I handed over our evidence to the flight crew, the helo lifted off twenty later. After an hour or so, Gibbs and I
met and decided to combine our teams. Gibbs admitted he didn't know what to make of the kidnapping. I asked him
what we could do to help. He said nothing till the results come back.
I said:" What you say that we let our group rest for today and let's you and I take a walk."
Gibbs:" That's fine, where we going?"
I said:" To the cave, I want to show you something and get your input."
Gibbs told his team and I told mine, but I told Gino to be ready and keep an eye on the lady doctors. Gibbs and I
started out for the cave, we didn't say a word as we entered.
I said:" Before we left I had one of the men lag behind and clear all the footprints from the first carvings to the
Gibbs:" Then somebody has been here after we left."
I said:" It seems that way, notice the prints are too small for a man, I would venture to say they are size five,
right size for a woman or women."
Gibbs:" There looks like two sets of prints here."
I said:" Yes it does, let me show you something else."
We walked over over to the carvings. I handed Gibbs a magnifying glass and told him to look at the edges. He did.
Gibbs:" These edges are smooth, whatever was used, it was very sharp and metallic."
I said:" You are correct sir, no ancient civilization made these unless they used diamond cutting blades. These
are all fake, even the drawings."
I continued:" This whole thing has been a ruse, right down to our women doctors. I don't know who, what, or
whatever it is, it can't be good."
Gibbs and I looked around another hour and headed back to camp. As we approached, there was Gino sitting
on the steps of the RV. By the expression on his sad face, looked like his puppy ran away.
I said:" Hey Dude, what's up?"
Gino:" We have a problem."
I said:" What is the problem? my little buddy."
Gino:" The doctor or in our case, the doctors, I'll explain, our two doctors have vanished, lock, stock and barrel,
cabin is empty, car is gone."
I said:" Interesting, Agent Gibbs and I found another problem in the cave."
I told him about our discovery in the cave, the markings and drawings are all phoney. Gino said that was interesting.
Gino's phone rang, it was Kathy.
Gino:" Hello my dear."
Kathy:" Hello children, as per your request,I dug deeper into the lives of Dr. Beth Barton and Dr. B.J. Harrington."
Gino:" And what did you find out Miss Sherlock?"
Kathy:" The two of them were killed in an auto accident last year, I ran facial recognition on your two, they are
not on any database."
Gino:" They sure do look good for being dead a year, Thanks babe, stay on it."
Kathy" Will do,take care."
Gino briefed Gibbs and me on the new developments.
I said:" Our exploration part is over since none of this is real, however, I think we will hang around for a while."
Gino:" Sounds good to me."
I told Gibbs that our operations center is at his disposal, anything he needs just ask, he accepted the offer.
I said:" I think tomorrow I will send six of our guys on a little exploration to the top of the mountain."
