The Disappearance of Andrew Dawson

The Disappearance of Andrew Dawson

A young and upcoming TikToker known for his uplifting energy and sense of humor disappeared on May 12th, 2022.

On April 10th, Andrew Dawson posted a video to his TikTok account of an alleged giant standing on top of Whistlers Mountain in Canada.  The video swept the platform, quickly going viral. It hit 4 million views in a matter of days. As of this writing the post has amassed over 12 million views.

Andrew soon posted a follow up video, on April 12th, claiming that a CIA agent stopped Andrew and his friend from investigating any further stating that they were trespassing, even though they were on public land.

On April 16, Dawson shared a video of a suspicious black vehicle outside his home (similar to the one that stopped him previously). However, when Dawson went outside the house, the car was seen speeding away.

Up until May 6, when he provided an "official update," the TikToker had not released any other videos.  he addressed his audience and assured them that he had not vanished or passed away but had just been busy with life. In the "official update" he said " Sorry to disappoint you guys, but all of the videos that I post... All the videos that I posted were scripted or just fake, they were scripted for entertainment."

The series of events intensified ten days later, on May 16th, when he posted a video titled "I'm scared". In the video he contradicts his previous statement and says " You might not see me post ever again... My videos weren't.. they weren't fake."

Dawson Posted one last update the next day on May 17, which showed what looked like the same mountain with a structure on top. Andrew claimed that the structure hadn't been there the day prior.

Andrew didn't post again after that, leaving fans of his content worried and concerned, it was as if he had disappeared. Unfortunately, there was news that he had passed away on July 1, 2022, after an obituary surfaced in a local paper, Campbell River Mirror.

There is no way to confirm the widespread rumor that Andrew is still alive. Nobody is really sure what actually happened to Andrew Dawson as of this writing.

The only thing we can be certain of is that Andrew saw something that night on the mountain that was enough to make him want to leave everything he knew and loved. Whether he is still alive or not, his whereabouts will continue to be a mystery.
