Item #: SCP-947

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The access point to SCP-947 is to be barricaded and monitored by automatic surveillance equipment. Individuals attempting to access SCP-947 are to be apprehended and turned over to local authorities. Foundation personnel are not to pass the established 1.6km marker unless required for testing.

Description: SCP-947 is a location accessible only by a dirt road leading off of Georgia HW 166. Attempts to access SCP-947 by any means other than this road will inevitably find SCP-947 absent from where it should be. Individuals who stray off of the dirt road and attempt to return to it will be unable to find it again. The road cannot be accessed by air. The road is approximately 2km in length, and exits into SCP-947.

SCP-947 is a 90m wide, indeterminately long section of clearcut hills, bordered on either side by trees, through which large high-voltage power line stanchions run. It is perpetually night within SCP-947, and stays a consistent 22.5° C. Crisscrossing SCP-947 are numerous dirt tracks, such that an off-road vehicle might use them for recreational purposes.

Several crude wooden signs bearing the words “Jasper’s Hill” with an arrow pointing north dot the dirt paths across SCP-947. Attempting to travel north within SCP-947 is extremely hazardous due to the terrain, which becomes increasingly difficult to navigate as the hills and valleys dramatically increase in size and complexity, to the point of impossibility. Because of this, exploratory teams have been unable to reach the north end of SCP-947.

SCP-947-1 is the group designation for a white, late 1980’s Chevrolet Blazer on a lifted suspension, and its driver. The true nature of SCP-947-1 has not yet been determined, though information gathered within SCP-947 has identified the driver of the vehicle as “Jasper” of “Jasper’s Hill”. SCP-947-1 is capable of easily navigating the impossible terrain of SCP-947, and seemingly does so to stalk and pursue individuals who become lost within SCP-947.

Addendum 947.1: Discovery

The existence of SCP-947 was part of a well known folk tale in the region, which typically told of three children who become lost in the woods and enter a dark clearing called “Jaspa’ Place”. The children then become lost, and are pursued by an unseen individual who eventually finds them and “hangs them upside down” at the end of the story.

However, it was not until a group of twelve young adults disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the area that Foundation personnel became involved. After three weeks, one of the individuals was found nearly 2km from the entrance to SCP-947, in a state of severe shock. The survivor, a 20 year old black male from Villa Rica, GA, managed to communicate to first responders that he was still being pursued by “Jasper”, and that the other missing individuals had all been “hung upside down”. At the sight of headlights from nearby vehicles passing by, the individual began to panic and scream about “Jasper” having found him and being unable to hide, and had to be sedated.

After law enforcement officials were unable to access SCP-947 by any means other than the dirt access road described by the survivor, and once the anomalous characteristics of SCP-947 were discovered, Foundation personnel from Atlanta worked to contain the scene and administer amnestics, as necessary, while working to prepare a team to attempt to find the remaining missing persons.
