On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman and child in a remote gold mining town disappeared, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins; and not a single bone was ever found. One hundred thirteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them into the abandoned mining town so that they can learn what happened. With them is a psychic, and a paranormal photographer—as the town is rumored to be haunted. A party that tried to explore the town years ago was never heard from again. What this crew is about to discover is that twenty miles from civilization, with a blizzard bearing down, they are not alone, and the past is very much alive.

The paranormal aspect was a very small part of it and almost like an afterthought that wasn't followed through with. It's written as two ...

Christmas Eve. A whole village disappears. 120 years later some people return to Abandon to find out what happened but they are not alone. I thought the premise was really good.
