This used to be a lively little village, a "one of everything" kind of place. It had a bustling main street and quaint homes. Until one night, the whole town seemingly fell off the map.
Two to three days after that night, it became apparent that something was wrong. Communications had ceased completley, people-mainly residents-stopped leaving town to go to their jobs or even coming out of their homes.
An initial response team was sent to investigate, but after days of no response, a second team was sent and were only able to recover a hand-held recording device, the first response team had also vanished.
These were the recordings recovered:

Arrival at destination. Right away we noticed a dismal air about the surrounding area. The coincidence of it being overcast today was rather cruel on mother nature's part. Investigation shall begin shortly.

After about an hour of searching, we've found no body yet. All buildings so far are in sound condition. No signs of any accidents or struggles. It's like everyone just... vanished...

Still nothing. Hours of searching has yielded no results. The team has elected to camp out for the night and continue in the morning. We have established sleeping arrangements in the local motel. Will resume recordings tomorrow.

Something is out there... I heard screaming. I heard it! Its footsteps woke me up! Whatever it is, it can't be human! Oh god... I don't want to die! Someone help me, someone help me...
It was obvious that something more than a "vanishing" happened here. That's why you're here. You and the rest of your team is the best we have in your lines of work. You will combine your efforts to locate the missing persons, and find out what happened.
