— A NASA spokesman denied on Thursday that the space agency is running a child slave colony on Mars, populating it with kidnapped children.
Radio host Alex Jones, known for presenting conspiracy theories on his show, spoke with guest Robert David Steele about the theory that children were being kidnapped and shipped to Mars to work in labor camps there.
“We actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year ride,” said Steele. “So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.”
NASA spokesman Guy Webster denied the existence of any slave colony on Mars, and, in fact, denied that there were any humans on the planet.
“There are no humans on Mars. There are active rovers on Mars. There was a rumor going around last week that there weren’t. There are. But there are no humans.”

HARTVILLE, Ohio — Roberta Snider and her husband left their Ohio home to visit Graceland, but she never returned.
Her husband, Philip Snider, told police Roberta Snider, 69, died of natural causes in a hotel parking lot across the street from Elvis Presley’s estate the day they arrived, and then she was taken by an ambulance to a hospital.
However there is no record of her body in Tennessee, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
“At first blush, what happened seemed reasonable,” Hartville Police Chief Larry Dordea told the Akron Beacon Journal.
Now investigators are tasked with retracing their 725-mile route to find answers.
“I think (Philip’s) recollection may be suspect,” Dordea said. “It’s a traumatic time for him, a lot of emotional pain. I’m not ready to clearly support any kind of thesis on this now. We have to painstakingly, methodically sift through the evidence.”
Philip Snider, 72, and Roberta Snider, known as Bobby, told their children they were going to the Memphis attraction one last time before she died. They left Jan. 4 and arrived two days later to the parking lot of a Days Inn hotel where Bobby had a medical emergency and died, Philip Snider said.
He found an ambulance parked nearby and rescue workers told Philip they were taking his wife to a Memphis hospital.
Philip did not know the name of the ambulance company or the hospital. He stayed the night then returned to Ohio.
Authorities have searched their condo and investigators are tracking down surveillance video that could have captured footage of the couple during their drive, according to the Canton Repository.
“Whether this is a crime or not, we want to find Mrs. Snider and get her back to family so she can be laid to rest in proper manner,” Dordea said.

— The story of an Ohio woman who allegedly died during a trip to Graceland has taken another surprising twist.
Phillip Snider, the husband at the center of the investigation, told investigators in Benton County, Tennessee that he dumped his wife’s body in the Tennessee River, according to WBBJ.
Phillip and his wife, Roberta, left their Ohio home to visit Graceland, but she never came home. He told police his wife was in poor health and this was supposed to be their last trip.
Phillip Snider originally told police his wife died of natural causes in a hotel parking lot across from Graceland. He said they found an ambulance nearby and emergency workers told him they were taking her to a hospital.
However, there is no record of her body in Tennessee, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Phillip didn’t know the name of the ambulance company or the hospital. As he returned home to Ohio, his story was brought into question.
Investigators in both Tennessee and Ohio have been trying to piece together the mystery.
In an interview with WBBJ, Benton County Sheriff Kenny Christopher revealed a conversation between Phillip Snider and investigators.
“He says he put her body in plastic and disposed of her body over this bridge,” Christopher told the Jackson-based TV station.
The sheriff said Phillip claims his wife had cancer and died “somewhere in Kentucky.” He allegedly continued to Memphis, stayed the night and dumped her body in the Tennessee River on the way home.
Roberta Snider’s body has not been recovered.

CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. — Authorities found a missing hiker alive early Monday after an overnight search in a Cherokee County park, Canton police said.
Officers said Brendan Dowling, 41, of Kennesaw, was walking on the trails behind Boling Park in Canton when he called 911 about 6:30 p.m. Sunday and said he was lost on Rampley Trail. He told authorities that his cellphone battery was dying, and it died during the call, police spokesman Pacer Cordry said.
Officers launched a search for Dowling and found his vehicle in Boling Park a short time later. At that point, Canton police as well as Cherokee fire and sheriff’s officials launched a wider search using ATVs and a police helicopter.
Dowling was found on a wooded trail about 4:30 a.m. wearing a T-shirt and shorts, Cordry said. He was evaluated by search and rescue personnel and later reunited with family.
"He's an avid runner according to his family, so he's used to running in the woods and trails like this, but obviously he got turned around tonight," Cordry said.
Authorities are still not sure how he got lost.
“We’re still waiting on those details,” Cordry said. “I believe he just entered into the trail and it got dark really quick on him. It’s easy to get turned around in these wooded areas out here.”
