Russia’s Yuba County 5
in 1959 nine students went hiking in Russia’s Ural Mountains and, like the Yuba county five, never came back
When the search team was sent to look for them, it was met with an inexplicable situation. The tent had been cut open from the inside where the students had ‘ escaped’, leaving all their rations behind. Five of the group were found over one kilometre away in various stages of undress, two had serious burns to their hands while others had run bare- footed into the wilderness only to die of exposure.
The final four hikers were discovered three months later, wearing the clothes of the other students. One had lost her tongue and another had serious internal injuries, but not so much as a scratch was externally visible. The clothing was highly radioactive and nearby residents reported glowing lights above the mountain on the night of their disappearance. The Dyatlov Mystery is obviously independent of the Yuba County 5 cold case, but the two incidents have parallels and seem unlikely to ever be solved.
