PHOTOS & DATA OF A NEW MEXICO AREA WHERE PEOPLE VANISH INTO THIN AIR... 

On August 31, 1998, Emma Tresp age 71, vanished outside of Pecos, New Mexico, her car was later found on Pecos County Service Road 63A. Which is known to some as DEVILS ROAD.

At the time of her disappearance Emma had no health issues, she was an experienced world traveler and was on her way to the Pecos Benedictine Monastery for a retreat. Emma had been there before,  at least 2-3 times, she knew her way.

On the morning of August 31, 1998, Emma left her daughter's Stillwater, Oklahoma house, she intended to drive to Pecos and reach the monastery late in the afternoon or early evening. 

Emma was last seen alive in Santa Rosa, New Mexico on August 31, at 3PM her credit card record shows that she gassed up at fuel station in Santa Rosa. This data buttress a security video that shows her at a Santa Rosa fuel stop.

Emma who was a widow who never arrived at the Pecos Monastery, later that first week in September her family found out that Emma could not be accounted for.  The deeply religious lady was reported missing on September 8th. Previous to this, on September 6th, her car was found by a hunter on Country Road 63A, which is a dirt road that intersects the Santa Fe road or old Route 66 Highway that enters into Pecos.  

As best as can be determined, Emma's car had gone down road 63A which is heavily rutted. This unkept lane eventually leads to an abandoned fire tower, which is known by some as DEVILS TOWER or BALDY, or GLORIETA BALDY.  Emma's white 4 door Honda Civic had gotten stuck roughly 2 miles from the abandoned fire tower.

Deepening on the NM source, EMMA's car was stuck on a rock or her car was stuck on a rock and the auto's oil pan had been damaged due to the rough road.  From what I have been able to gather, the vehicle  still had oil in it and was in running condition.

WHERE  EMMA's CAR WAS FOUND DOES NOT COMPUTE!!!!   Again, where Emma;s car was found does not make sense--Emma knew the road to the Monastery.  Furthermore there is no comparison to the forest road (DEVIL's ROAD, EMMA's ROAD, BALDY ROAD, CAMINO DEL DIABLO, etc.) that her car got stuck on as compared to the Pecos Monastery road.  To reach the Monastery, one has to drive into Pecos on a well kept paved road.

BELOW: Monastery entrance, there is nothing comparable between 63A and the MONASTERY road 63.  Below this article are a number of pictures, that proves you can not mistake the roads, yet --- sleuths think EMMA got confused during the day and went down a road due to the  (63) that was bone jarrrrrring and got stuck and died in the timbers.  It is of note--Emma had been to the MONESTARY a few times before her vanishing, different years.  It does not make sense -- as in how a person could confuse the MONASTERY area for the rough track that Emma's car was found on.

Some authorities speculate that Emma took 63A rather than 63 and this is how she got onto the road that leads into the wilderness.  That idea does not make sense, by all accounts EMMA TRESP WAS NOT --NOT-- NOT-- STUPID....

The county forest road (63A) where Emma's car was found is on the outskirts of Pecos and it is one of the worse roads that one will ever encounter due to erosion and steep hills. There is no way you can confuse this road for the MONASTERY road.

I have been down this road that Emma vanished on searching for any trace of Emma and also researching this mystery.  As stated before there is no way possible one can go down this forest road, without knowing one has made a mistake and taken the wrong route. Emma's road  63A at first gently passes by private  lanes that lead to houses in the forest, then the country road passes by a gate and over a cattle guard.  Beyond this barrier, 63A gets bad and turns into DEVILS ROAD.  There used to be a sign on this road that let everybody know -- what the place was called.

This old fire tower rutted road is filled with ditches, holes, eroded shoulders and steep hills. Why would Emma drive down this lane? The car is jarring itself on bumps, why did she not turn around?

 Even in a four wheel vehicle, the bad sections can jar you if you are not buckled in, it is easy to bust a passenger  car tire on this road, that is how bad the forest road is.

When Emma's car was found a search was ordered, over 200 "Official' personnel looked for the lost lady, hundreds of unofficial personnel also searched for this citizen of North Little Rock, Arkansas. A $20,000 reward was offered for any information leading to finding Emma, dead or alive.  During the search bad weather blew in and rescue operations were temporarily halted for close to three days.  The earth build up under Emma's car could have been attributed to the natural land channel under the car, as in the precipitation made for the idea that her car was high centered and immobile.  

Emma's car was found on a very steep incline, how it got there, no idea.  Before getting to that point, Emma would have to travel over some obstacles, rocks, small trenches that should have gotten her car stuck.  At the point of where her car was found, again---one has to think how could this car not be rolled back down the steep road?  Gravity was on Emma's side, with some creativity by way of accelerator or use of a jack or material under the vehicle, the HONDA would be back down the hill. 

Planes, helicopters, searchers on foot, horseback and in all terrain vehicles looked for Emma.  Tragically, the lady from Arkansas or any trace of her, was never found.  What could have become of her? 

Emma's footprints were found around her car, but that was it.  The search dogs could find no scent or footprints beyond her auto.  None of the trackers could find any clues in which direction she had gone. Yes the trackers with search dogs went up and down the road from her car.

Inside Emma's car, was her suitcase, coins and the rest of her belongings. Emma did not leave any note in the car of where she was off to, nor did she write anything in lipstick on the car, stating her plight.  

Oddly, Emma left her purse and cell phone inside the car, this does not make sense.  Even if Emma could not get anybody on her portable phone, due to the geography of the area she was in.  Eventually Emma would be in a area where her phone would work if she had planned to walk back towards the outskirts of Pecos or the homes she had past on the wooded lane. 

 Emma was 5'6" and weighed around 135-145 pounds. What did Emma take with her, if she did leave her car and tried to leg it back to the main road or houses that she had previously passed by?  Perhaps Emma took a six-pack of sodas with her, one will never know?  But it looks by the evidence that Emma did not get past a few feet from her car, she just vanished.  That is where her footprints end a few feet from her car as in circling her auto.

The following ideas have been asked by those that went out to Pecos and searched for her. Did Emma try to hike back down the road she came up, was she attacked by a predator animal and then dragged off the road? Did she suffer a heart attack and became delirious and wandered off into the trees and died, or was set upon by some bad men or a bad man who lived in the forest? OR? Was Emma victim to some type of portal or alien?  

THE FACTS = EMMA's tracks are clear around her car so why is there no other prints, of where Emma could have gone. There was no signs that Emma was set upon by a beast while she was outside of her car. There were no prints of this happening. 

CONCLUSION--OR A MYSTERY WITH NO ANSWER!

Think about this, Emma's foot prints are seen around her car and then nothing after that. Also, Emma did not leave any type of message about her plans, as in an S.O.S. message. The evidence has it that Emma get out of her car and then that is when something happened? As in that is where she vanished? That is what the evidence leans to.

Through the years no shoe belonging to Emma or bit of clothing of hers has turned up.   

State Police investigator David Martinez who worked the Treps case had this say about this mystery, "It's like she vanished off the face of the Earth, there are no answers."

Vistior to this site, read the above paragraph again ---- in other words --- as it stands now -- poor Tresp joins a list of others -- who went missing,  and there vanishing does not make sense. 

As the crow flies, Emma vanished about 6-8 miles away from where Mel Nadel vanished.  Two miles in front of Emma was )Devil's Tower-the Abandoned Tower, Baldy Point, Badly), beyond that at most was a 3 mile walk to a huge easily seen  campus -meeting center that was run by the Baptist church.  5- 6 miles away from Emma's vanished spot is the old RT 66.  In that area is another mysterious happening, more on that later----Also in 1973 the Larry mystery (YET ANOTHER HAPPENING WITH NO SATISFACTORY ANSWER) occurred in the area beyond where Emma's road ends.  More on that 1973 mystery in the future. 

SO what became of this lady? Or for that matter what became of MEL NADEL?

In the Pecos Triangle, there is a road which is known to the eccentrics by many names, the scariest monicker is Devil's Road.  On this lane and in this area through the centuries people have mysterious disappeared.  As odd as that may read, this location East & Southeast of Santa Fe is home to some baffling vanishings.  People can joke about what the road is called --CAMINO DEL DIABLO, UFO POINT, BALDY ROAD, PECOS BALDY RD, BROKEN AXLE ROAD on and on, but beyond the snarky one liners ---  on this road and in this area people have gone missing.  There is no closure for the missing's loved ones.  What can account for these mysterious happening. 

Lights, voices, sounds, UFOs, shape shifters, LA LLORONA, ghosts, you name it --- has been linked  to this road and area. Is it possible there is a doorway in this area that opens and closes, and something or things come out of it and are responsible for the vanishings. Or the vanished were lured or fell into one of these portals?

BELOW: Tour Guide & Author, Allan Pacheco = with his Mare's Leg, he is prepared for anything on this investigation. The dreaded road where EMMA TRESP vanished.

Through the centuries this area which is now known as the PECOS TRIANGLE, has been known for its vanishings.  Before the Spaniards came to this area in the 1500s the Pecos Indians that lived in this vicinity of where 63A--Devils Road and Elk Mountain were located were wary of this land. Why? Because El Viveron lived out in the wilds. This mythical monster -beast-shapeshifter or … would prey upon those that encountered it.

When people would vanish from the Pecos Pueblo while out in the mountains or forests, the tribes people would think that El Viveron had struck again.  

So what is El Viveron, a giant reptile, a huge snake, a bipod reptilian creature, a shapeshifter that comes through a stargate or doorway from another dimension or world?  Or is El Viverion a big lie, there is no such things.

One thing is certain is that since the 1500s, when records started being kept by the Europeans that explored this area and settled it.  People have gone missing, as in vanished without a trace where El Viveron supposedly lives or visits.

In 1998, Emma Tresp was on County Road 63A which the weird Beards call Devils Road or EMMA's ROAD. --- Like other people before her, EMMA TRESP vanished into thin air.  

Geography: the road Emma traveled is a dirt lane that can be traveled on by a family car during spring through fall, but only to a certain point. The county road turns bad  a few miles into the forest and only a 4 Wheel vehicle or motorcycle can safely navigate the rough, furrowed, obstacle strewn  road.

There are some signs that warn the driver the road ahead is unkept and dangerous.  You can not miss these signs.  The road itself tells a driver that this area can only be traveled safely by an all terrain vehicle.

Why would Tresp  go up this terrible road, was something chasing her? Was she mesmerized or frightened to the point that she had to travel this bone jarring lane?

Some people speculate Tresp became lost and went down the wrong road looking for  the monastery that she was going to take a retreat at. This does not make sense. Trees had been to the monastery before and knew how to get there. To get to the monastery one has  to drive through the village of Pecos to get to it, one does not take a county road that is near impassable.  The monastery is off of a paved road, where EMMA motored is rough, axle breaking road.

Other sleuths think Tresp went down the county road (EL camino Diablo) to look at the foliage and views.

Again, this does not make sense.  The road that Tresp traveled on jars a car to the point of breaking it, that is how furrowed the lane is. Nobody in there right mind would keep going down this road, looking at foliage.  EMMA WAS A SEASONED WORLD TRAVELER! Emma had traveled to eEurope and Africa and had made it back okay.

Another oddity, is that Tresp navigated her car through a lot of bad trenched, eroded road, before her car got stuck. Why would this lady keep going down a road that a first grader would think is too dangerous to travel on.

The police report is that Tresp car was high centered and that is why she abandoned her auto. That may or may not be true, due to the fact that there has been a lot of investigation negligence in previous reports from the authorities. From what I gathered during my investigation, it was pretty hard to high center  a car on the incline of where Emma's car was found. With some imagination and moving the steering wheel and rocking the car, etc... One would move back down the incline at a great deal of speed, the photos later on will show the reader just how steep the area was where EMMAs car was found. 

When Tresp's car was found, there was no sign of struggle or robbery. All of her belonging were  untouched, her suitcases had not been gone through.  The small amount of money in the car had not been taken. No foreign finger prints were found in the auto.

Tresp by all accounts was a seasoned world traveler. She had gone to Europe and Africa many times.

Tresp did not leave a SOS letter on the dashboard, she did not put in lipstick any type of message on her  door or windows.

What was found was her footsteps that circled her car. That is where her footsteps end,  they do not go up or down the road or into the trees. Its as if Tresp walked around her car and then disappeared. How can that happen?

Furthermore why would this lady go so deep into County Road 63A or Axle Breaker Road? Again was she being chased or did she see something or hear something unworldly that led her to drive down a rugged road that sealed her doom?

Another point to ponder, in her car on the passenger seat was her purse and cell phone. Why would an experienced traveler leave those things behind?

Did something frighten Tresp out of her car and she fled around it. Is it possible that some energy got into her car and scared her so she had to run around her vehicle? 

Some people who have heard La Llorona a NM BANSHEE, while driving on county dirt roads, swear that the sound seemed to come from right inside the car.

From where Tresp car was found, LA LLORONA LANE, which is located about 5-8 miles from the vanishing.  That is a road to the north of the road that EMMA vanished on.

Any ideas on Tresp or anybody else's mysterious vanishings in this area, shoot me an email with info or theory. santafewriter@me.com

To the right and below are photos of DEVILS ROAD--PECOS BALDY ROAD, BONE SHAKER ROAD, etc...  63A turns into a road that is so rough, it can break your auto's axle or bust an oil pan.

At first the road is fine, once it gets past the old county road sign, the lane becomes rough stuff and eventually the wagon path turns into a road that is so rutted it is just a path. At the glove marker the road gets rougher and rougher. Beyond this is where people vanish. DEVILS ROAD MOJO! What significance the glove has, no idea?

From roughly this sign onward DEVILS ROAD GET rough and is filled with trenches and inclines + large rocks and fallen trees, that one squeezes by.

ABOVE RIGHT: MARKER  was put up where Emma's car was found, how she got this far is a wonder, this road is beyond belief rough, the pictures do not due justice in just how badly rutted this lane is.

BELOW: R.C. the energy at where EMMA TRESP vanished is odd, R.C. expression matches the vibe of the area. What happened to her?  At this place, where the monument is, a woman vanished into thin air. INCREDIBLE! 

At the end of the road is a old abandoned fire tower (known as ABANDONED TOWER, DEVILS TOWER, BALDY TOWER, GLORIETA BALDY, etc..) that was built in 1939-1940. The tower is at 10,400 feet mark.

At this location and near it, strange lights have been seen. Not lights from partiers, but odd bursts of white energy, also UFO activity has been noted in this region. One of the curious things about this tower, is that the steps going up to the second level have been removed, but the steps from the 2nd story are brand new and bolted inlace.

COUNTY 63A/(EMMA's ROAD), DEVILS ROAD, BALDY ROAD, UFO ROAD, whatever you call it, it  is DANGEROUS !!!!  On JUNE 6, 2017 -- a bright white UFO, not a satellite, not a helicopter, not the moon was seen --- estimated about 5-8 miles North of the area where TRESP and others have vanished.  This light in the sky a craft hovered after dawn for 10-15 minutes then disappeared.   Be advised --- this is a place where bad things can happen very fast --- if you are going to this area, you had better be prepared, know what you are doing and be with people you can trust and will not wander off.
