Alleyway Horror

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Foundation informants within the Vancouver Police Department are to maintain notice on all disappearances matching SCP-XXXX's profiles. At least two agents are to maintain undercover status around potential status.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an anomalous phenomena linked to the disappearance of women within the Downtown Eastside District of Vancouver, British Columbia.

The subject, hereby referred to as SCP-XXXX-Alpha instances, will be walking through a sparsely populated area sometime after dark. This behavior is not believed to be influenced by SCP-XXXX, but rather natural actions as a result of the Alpha instance's lifestyle.

SCP-XXXX has been estimated to divide into several stages.

Stage 1: Local Hume levels will begin dropping slightly around the subject at an average of fifteen percent. Due to the almost imperceptible drop, no changes are noticed. Instances will begin walking faster.

Stage 2: Instances appear to express fear at this point. Instances will begin to run as if being chased, though no assailants have ever been spotted on camera footage. Stage 2 appears to end as soon as the instance enters an area where it is completely imperceptive.

Stage 3: Individuals vanish, leaving no trace behind. Hume levels remain low, slowly returning back to baseline levels in about four to five months. No individuals who have reached stage 3 have ever been found.

Approximately 80 percent of known SCP-XXXX-Alpha instances are Indigenous women living in poverty. A further 15 percent have been sex workers operating in the city. While being difficult to separate from non-anomalous missing cases, SCP-XXXX is believed to be responsible for the disappearance of 76 women since 1979.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered by local Site-32 in 1983, when local humes disparities were noticed through out the Downtown disparities. However, due to the contemporary attitude towards Indigenous peoples at the time, no link was made with recent disappearances in the area. SCP-XXXX would not receive its official classification until two years later, with the testimony of SCP-XXXX-Alpha-1.

While taking humes measurements throughout the city in the guise of a police detective, Agent Kinsey reported hearing a woman screaming for help. Running after the sound, Kinsey encountered a woman named Francyne Sinclair (SCP-XXXX-Alpha-1), who reported that someone had been chasing her.

Kinsey was ordered to hand Sinclair over to Foundation informants within the VPD. However, Kinsey, investigated the area SCP-XXXX-Alpha-1 reported it had been running from instead, and noticed a humes disparity within the alleyway. Theorizing that the assailant and his investigation were linked, he took SCP-XXXX-Alpha-1 into custody.

Bernard: So, Miss Sinclair. What exactly were you doing so late at night in the area?

Person: Walking home from work.

Bernard: And what is your profession?
