PILOTS MISSING, SURVIVORS CARRY ON

19 OF TWENTY ONE PILOTS STILL MISSING

Friday, March 3, 2017 - NerdMost.com Newswire Exclusive

New Orleans, Louisiana – A noticeably emotional crowd of aviation fans, well-wishers, and law enforcement officers gathered at the Smoothie King Center on Thursday night as 19 of the reported Twenty One Pilots are currently missing. Officials appear to have very little to go on in attempting to locate them.

Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph were the only members of the aviation collective in the arena, and the duo were obviously concerned for the well being of all those in attendance. “How’s everyone doing tonight?” Joseph asked repeatedly. “You guys still with us?”

The pair wore masks and multiple outfits during the night, possibly in an attempt to obscure the actual number of pilots in attendance, but NerdMost.com has been able to independently verify that all pilots seen were Dun and Joseph in various costumes.

With such a large portion of the group’s membership missing, fans were visibly shaken. “Oh my god! I’m going to die,” screamed teenage fan Elizabeth Cantrell. With tears running down her face, Cantrell attempted to console one of the remaining pilots from across the arena. “I love you, Tyler! I LOVE YOU, TYLER!” she shouted multiple times.

Fan Molly Robinette detailed the shock of seeing only two of the pilots make it to the stage. “When (Dun) came out I literally had an aneurism! He is so hot!” she said. Robinette later left the area, possibly in an attempt to seek medical attention.

Law enforcement officials were placed in and around the arena searching for the absent aviators.  When asked what happened to the other 19 pilots, officials attempted to deflect attention away from the investigation. One anonymous official cryptically told this reporter “You can’t stand here, sir.”

The New Orleans Police Department has issued no comment or statement about the investigation, but questions have surfaced regarding the flight status of the two remaining pilots. The investigation is ongoing and NerdMost.com will continue to cover this developing story.
