There are many people who believe they have been abducted by UFOnauts. These abduction victims often experience memory loss and "missing time". some of them have been able to recall their abductions from memory and others have recalled their abductions by the aid of hypnosis. Often these encounters involve being taken aboard an alien craft and examined by the UFOnauts and put through a variety of physical and mental procedures. Then the individuals are returned. Many of the abduction victims have shown signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.


Some of the major researchers who have studied the abduction field include Budd Hopkins, David M. Jacobs, John Mach, Philip J. Klass, and Jenny Randles.

One of the first people to claim to of been abducted by Aliens, apart from the famous 'contactees' of the 40s and 50s, was actually a couple. (This is most unusual as most abductions tend to be of one person). The couple were Betty and Barney Hill.

1973-00-00; USA, Mississippi, Pascagoula


Category: Abduction


The Pascagoula Incident involved two men, nineteen-year-old Calvin Parker and forty-two-year old Charles Hickson, both of Gautier, Mississippi, who were fishing in the Pascagoula River when they heard a buzzing noise behind them. Both turned and were terrified to see a ten-foot-wide, eight-foot-high, glowing egg-shaped object with blue lights at its front hovering just above the ground about forty feet from the river bank. As the men, frozen with fright, watched, a door appeared in the object, and three strange Beings floated just above the river towards them.


The Beings had legs but did not use them. They were about five feet tall, had bullet-shaped heads without necks, slits for mouths, and where their noses or ears would be, they had thin, conical objects sticking out, like carrots from a snowman's head. They had no eyes, grey, wrinkled skin, round feet, and claw-like hands.


Two of the beings seized Hickson; when the third grabbed Parker, the teenager fainted with fright. Hickson claimed that when the Beings placed their hands under his arms, his body became numb, and that then they floated him into a brightly lit room in the UFO's interior, where he was subjected to a medical examination with an eyelike device which, like Hickson himself, was floating in mid-air.


At the end of the examination, the Beings simply left Hickson floating, paralyzed but for his eyes, and went to examine Parker, who, Hickson believed was in another room. Twenty minutes after Hickson had first observed the UFO, he was floated back outside and released. He found Parker weeping and praying on the ground near him. Moments later, the object rose straight up and shot out of site.


Expecting only ridicule if they were to tell anyone what had happened, Hickson and Parker initially decided to keep quiet; but then, because the government might want, or ought, to know about it, they telephoned Kessler Air Force Base in Biloxi. A sergeant there told them to contact the sheriff. But uncertain about the reception their bizarre story might get from the local law, they drove to the local newspaper office to speak to a reporter. When they found the office closed, Hickson and Parker felt they had no alternative but to talk to the sheriff.


The sheriff, after listening to their story, put Hickson and Parker in a room wired for sound in the belief that if the two men were left alone they would reveal their hoax; of course they did not. The local press reported their tale; the wire services picked it up; and within several days the Pascagoula Encounter was major news all over the country. The Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO), founded in 1952, sent University of California engineering professor James Harder to Mississippi to investigate; J. Allen Hynek, representing the Air Force, also arrived. Together they interviewed the witnesses. Harder hypnotized Hickson but had to terminate the session when Hickson became too frightened to continue.


Hickson and Parker both subsequently passed lie detector tests. Hynek and Harder believed the two men's story. And Hynek was later quoted as saying "There was definitely something here that was not terrestrial".



1973-05-00; USA, Texas, Houston


Category: Abduction


Another famous mutilation/UFO encounter occurred in May 1973 when Judy Doraty, Cindy Dorary (Judy's daughter), Judy's mother and Judy's sister-in-law were driving back from Houston, Texas.


The women suddenly saw a strange light hovering in the sky, the women all got out to take a closer look until the object disappeared. They then returned to the car and went on their way.


Later Judy began to have very bad headaches and anxiety attacks. After several doctors had examined her she was referred to ufologist Dr. Leo Sprinkle. He hypnotized her she reported the following.


"It's like a spotlight shining down on the back of my car. And it's like it has substance to it. I can see an animal being taken up in this. I can see it squirming and trying to get free. And it's like it's being sucked up."


She then went on to mention seeing her daughter Cindy on an 'operating' table. She went on:


"They don't listen, they just ignore me....go about their work as if it's nothing. They don't seem to have any emotions. They don't seem to care. They just take some samples from her...".


Many years later Cindy was also hypnotized, and recalled events which clearly backed up those of her mothers. More information.



1975-11-05; USA, Arizona, Heber


Category: Abduction


On the 5th November 1975 Mike Rogers and his crew of 6 forestry workers were traveling back in their truck from work to the forest of Heber, Arizona when Alan Dalis, one of the crew members spotted a large glow coming from above a group of trees.


As they got closer they noticed a disk hovering about 20 feet above the ground. They stopped the truck to take a closer look when one of the crew jumped out to get an even closer look. Travis Walton was approaching the object when it started to make a strange noise and before the rest of the crew could do anything a large beam of light struck Travis which sent him tumbling backwards.


At this point Mike Rodgers, the driver, panicked and drove the truck away. After a short distance the men forced Mike to drive back to collect their fellow worker. When they returned there was no sign of the object or of Travis.


A police investigation started as soon as the men reported what had happened, and an extensive search was carried out of the abduction area. Many people believed that the men had murdered Travis and used the UFO as a cover story.


The men requested that they take a lie detector test to try and clear their names. The first polygraph test was inconclusive, however, a second, indicated that they were telling the truth about what they had witnessed.


On November 10th, 5 days after the abduction, Travis's brother-in-law received a phone call from Travis and they went to pick him up a few miles outside of Heber. When they found him he was naked, distraught and confused.


Soon afterwards he began to recall the events of the past few days. He told a story of aliens who were about 5 feet tall with domed hairless heads, large eyes, tiny ears and nose, and a slit for a mouth who performed various 'experiments' on him.


He also reported many other strange events such as seeing an 'almost' human entity who showed him around but did not answer his questions, and also of a control room where he could see through the exterior of the craft a gaze at the stars.

1978-10-21; Australia, Victoria


Category: uncategorized


Frederick Valentich, 20, was a keen flyer and was also a keen UFO reader. On October 21st 1978 he decided to take his Cessna from Melbourne and fly over the Bass Strait up to King Island. Valentich knew that in the last week there had been numerous reports of strange cigar-shaped objects spotted in the Bass Strait area.


He set off early evening just as it was becoming dark, and was over half way into his journey. He had around 30 minutes left before he would be over land again, but was in constant contact with Steve Robey, the duty officer at Melbourne Air Traffic Control.


At 19:06 Valentich called Robey and asked "Is there any traffic in my area below 5,000 feet?". Robey replied that there was no other craft expected in that area.


Valentich replied "Four bright....seems to me like landing lights....just passed over me. At least a 1000 feet above.". Valentich became more concerned and reported:

"It's approaching now from due east, towards me....It seems to me that he's playing some sort of game...He's flying over me....It's not an aircraft, it's.....It's a long shape....cannot identify...the thing is just orbiting on top of me....It's got a green light and sort of metallic-like...It's all shiny on the outside".


Valentich then radioed that his engine was not working properly and informed Melbourne that he would try and make it to King Island. He then suddenly cried out:

"Ah, Melbourne, that strange craft is hovering on top of me again...It's hovering and it's not an aircraft!".


There was then a cry, followed by a strange metallic grinding noise. Then nothing.


Despite several days of land, air, and sea search no trace of Valentich or his Cessna were ever found.


Again various theories were put forward ranging from Valentich plotting his own disappearance and faking a close encounter to that of a fateful meeting with drug smugglers.


Even to this day no one is sure what happened to Frederick Valentich.



1988-01-20; Australia, South Australia, Nullabor


Category: UFO Sighting


On the 20th January 1988, whilst driving on the Eyre Highway, Nullarbor, Australia Faye Knowles her 3 sons and the family dog, were traveling towards South Australia to visit some relatives.


As they were driving along they suddenly saw a strange light ahead of them. It was pale yellow and seemed to be zigzagging around. The object then shot straight towards the Knowles family and hovered right in front of the car. They described the object as looking like an egg in an egg cup.


After swerving and zigzagging themselves to try and get clear of the object they suddenly realized that the object was now hovering directly above their car. The Knowles family could hear a high-pitched humming sound as the car was being tossed from side to side by apparently very strong winds.


During this time they also noticed a terrible smell of electrical burning, and the car was filling up with a strange grey mist. All of a sudden they realised that the car was no longer touching the surface of the road. It seemed to be hovering a few meters up.


After a short while the car crashed back down to earth and crashed off the edge of the highway. Inside the car there was a fine sprinkling of powder and a the strange electrical burning smell.


They reported the incident to both police and UFO investigators, who took samples of the grey powder. The powder contained chemicals very similar to those that NASA use to coat the surface of the space shuttle.


One theory put forward was that they had been engulfed in a fierce and very unusual form of electrically charged tornado.

1989-11-30; USA, New York, Manhattan


Category: Abduction


Budd Hopkins the famous UFO writer and 'expert' on UFO abductions has dealt with many 'victims' of abductions but in most cases he has obtained no backup evidence that some has actually occurred,(apart from the mental scars).


However, one case which intrigued him was when he received a letter from 2 men, Richard and Dan and claimed to be New York police officers. They claimed to have lived with a terrible experience, one of the men was so shocked that he was on the point of nervous breakdown. The letter said that he would be sitting in his car looking up at an apartment block in Manhattan waiting for 'them' to return.


The letter went on in detail to say how on November 30th 1989, they had seen a young woman in a night-gown float out of her 12th floor windows surrounded by strange little creatures. They then saw the creatures take the women into a saucer-like craft, which then sped away.


The amazing thing was that a women who had visited Budd regarding an alleged abduction lived at the apartment block in question and also reported the abduction on the night in question.


Richard and Dan only contacted Budd once more and provided a few extra details. These included an audio tape, and information as to how their car had stopped for no reason just before the sighting began.
