The term Spirited Away is used to describe a specific group of missing people. These people have completely disappeared without cause or reason, but the most important aspect of their disappearance is that there is suspicion that the paranormal is involved.


Outcome of VictimsEdit

When a person is said to have been spirited away, it means that they have been taken by spirits to another place. The bodies of the victims are usually never found. Spirited Aways don't necessarily disappear in similar circumstances or similar locations. People can be spirited away and survive their "capture".


This specific term was not used until Fatal Frame III: The Tormented, but all the of the previous games have used the theme of one being taken by ghosts and spirits. Different names may be applied to the same phenomenon in specific areas or circumstances: for example, the Lost Patients, or residents of Rougetsu Island who were thought to have been "taken to the moon".
