The infamous Bermuda Triangle is not on the list of included searching places, which Ken cannot understand, especially since so many strange things have happened in the region. Taking matters into his own hands, Ken decides to try and find answers himself, heading to the Bermuda Triangle with a companion whose wife and daughter are missing. Drew Pearson joins Ken on his mission as they embark on a perilous journey to one of the most dangerous places on Earth, and what they find is far more grim than what they ever could have imagined. It’s not long before the two men are uncovering secrets and brutal regimes, causing their very lives to hang in the balance.
