Four young boys, aged 5 to 12, observed a disc-shaped craft as it
landed behind a small woods near where they were playing. A humanoid
clad in a space suit, about four feet tall, emerged from the woods.
Two of the boys threw dirt clods at the entity to provoke it into
some action. The entity then shot them with a small black rod,
producing a tingling sensation and slight pain. When the boys were
individually questioned, all four stories matched. The description
of the humanoid which they gave matched information in NICAP files
of more than 200 other sightings in the Ohio River Valley area in
considerable and exact detail.
The boys’ mother stated that she got a “message in her head”
call the University of Louisville shortly after she called the
to report the sighting.
Small footprints and clear landing marks were found. A day later,
unidentified men visited the landing site and eradicated the landing
evidence. Although they stated that they were from the University of
Louisville, this was checked out and found to be untrue.
CASE NUMBER 2
Date: 1965, and continuing, to the present.
Investigators: Antonio Ribera and Rafael Farriols, both ufologists
A planet called UMMO began contacting various people in Spain in
1965. The people were well-respected and educated: a writer, an
engineer, a lawyer, etc. The contacts would be by telephone, and the
contactee was invited to ask questions of the Ummites. Later, a
report answering the question would come in the mail.
These reports were signed with a thumbprint bearing a distinctive
mark much like the alchemical symbol for Uranus, an “H” with a
shorter vertical line through the bar. The contactees were told that
the Ummo craft would be at a certain place on a certain date. The
craft showed up on schedule and pictures were taken of it. On the
bottom of the craft there is the cross-barred “H” symbol.
The reports have continued to come in through the intervening years,
and speak on many technical subjects, such as physics and biology.
The “Ummo” words which are used in these reports, when collected
together and considered, form a self-consistent language structure.
They say that they are from a planet which revolves around a star
which they have tentatively identified as being our “Wolf 424,” and
that they were first attracted to our solar system by a radio signal
which was sent from Earth in 1934. They gave the frequency of the
signal (413.44 megacycles). Between the ages of 14 and 16 the vocal
chords of the children become sclerosed and for this reason most of
the adult inhabitants of Ummo are unable to talk and must use
These Ummo reports are an exceptionally interesting instance of UFO
contact, and they continue at the present time. FLYING SAUCER
REVIEW occasionally updates this continuing story.

Date: May 4-9, 1969
Place: Bebedouro, Brazil
Investigator: Hulvio B.
Aleixo of CICOANI, a research group of Belo Horizante, Brazil.
Jose Antonio da Silva, a 24-year-old soldier of excellent personal
character and reputation, was abducted by small, red-bearded
humanoids who forcibly took him aboard their craft. During his
confinement aboard their strange vessel, a fair, tall, human-looking
being appeared to him, though the smaller aliens did not seem to be
able to see him. This being warned da Silva of a danger which
involved the whole of mankind which might be avoided if man on Earth
changed his ways. Da Silva was told that intervention by unknown
beings, and possible calamities, might be involved.
Twelve days after his abduction, da Silva was awakened by a sudden
urge to go outside. He did so and saw three of the red-bearded
aliens, who had apparently summoned him telepathically. He quickly
re-entered his house and locked the door against them, for he felt
that part of the danger to come might involve them.
CASE NUMBER 4

Gordon, MUFON State Director
Because this is a report of 118 separate contacts with unknown
creatures, the date and place have to be generalized. These reports
vary somewhat but have the primary details more or less in common.
The salient feature of these cases is the creature or creatures who
are sighted. They are hairy, ape-like beings with glowing eyes and
apparent ears, large noses, fang-like teeth, and the long arms of an
ape. Where Gordon was able to take footprint casts, the print was a
large and three-toed track. The sightings were, in the majority, in
wooded areas or near rural or small-town homes.
During the sighting,
animals would be still, but before and after a sighting, both
animals and small children acted as though they were quite
disturbed, cows huddling, dogs barking, children crying all night.
These creatures have been sighted often in connection with UFO
sightings, have been seen entering and leaving UFOs, and on occasion
a telepathic communication from a source connected with the
creatures has been reported. In three of these encounters, a
creature has been shot. One was shot with a 30-06 (see Case Number
6). Another was shot with a 16 ga. shotgun at close range, and the
third with a .38 pistol. The latter two creatures both disappeared
in a flash of light, like a photo-flash bulb going off, on being
CASE NUMBER 5
Place: Pascagoula, Mississippi
Investigators: Dr. J.
Allen Hynek, Chairman of the Dept. of Astronomy, Northwestern
University; Director, Center for UFO Studies; Dr. James A. Harder,
Prof. of Civil Engineering, University of California; Director of
Charles Hickson, age 45, and 18-year-old Calvin Parker were fishing
when an oblong, blue-gray craft 35 to 40 feet long descended and
hovered near them. The craft made a “zipping” noise. A door appeared
in the craft and three humanoids or robots came out and approached
the two men. Like their craft, these entities did not touch the
ground but moved just above it, proceeding without moving their
legs. The entities were short and had elephant-hide skin, slits for
eyes, and pincer-like hands.
When Parker saw the entities approach, he passed out. Hickson was
paralyzed, but was able to continue observing what happened. Two of
the entities picked up Hickson by his arms and carried him inside
the ship. When he was picked up, Hickson lost all feeling, including
that of weight. He was taken to a bare, brightly-lit room. He could
not see where the light came from. The entities placed him in a
reclining position, still “floating” in air, and an eye-like
instrument scanned back and forth across his body with thoroughness,
as if it were examining or photographing him. This episode lasted
somewhere between 15 and 40 minutes, Hickson is not at all sure
about the time. After the examination was over, the entities left
Hickson alone for a while, and then “floated” him back to where they
had picked him up on the river bank.
About an hour later, the two shaken fishermen went to the sheriff’s
office to report their story. They were interrogated exhaustively
and afterwards were left alone, in a “bugged” room. The recording of
their conversation at that time reveals that both men were quite
frightened by their experience, the emotional trauma having been so
great to Parker that, after Hickson left the room, he began to pray.
Ultimately he suffered a nervous breakdown as a result of this
Hickson, though plagued with nightmares, and continuing feelings of
terror about the experience, came through it better, and was able to
work with investigators who wished to ascertain the truth about his
experience. A 2½ hour lie detector test, given by a highly skeptical
polygraph operator, revealed that Hickson was telling the truth.
When Dr. Harder used the technique of time regression hypnosis on
Hickson, he too felt that Hickson was telling the truth about the
experience, for he said “a strong feeling of terror is practically
impossible to fake under hypnosis.”
CASE NUMBER 6
Place: Greensburg, Pennsylvania
Investigator: Berthold Eric Schwarz, M.D., Consultant, Brain Wave Laboratory,
Essex Co. Hospital Center, Cedar Grove, New Jersey, Consultant to
FLYING SAUCER REVIEW.
This case is perhaps the most interesting and many-faceted of the
188 Pennsylvania creature sightings included in Case Number 4. It
began at nine o’clock at night, when a young farmer, called Stephen
Pulaski in the report given in FLYING SAUCER REVIEW, and at least
fifteen other witnesses saw a bright red ball hovering over a field
near them. Stephen grabbed a 30.06 rifle, and he and two ten-year
old neighbor boys went to investigate it. Stephen’s auto headlights
dimmed as he neared the object, and as the object descended towards
the field, Stephen’s German Shepherd, back at the house, became very
disturbed. The object was now bright white, and appeared to be about
100 feet in diameter.
It was buzzing much like a lawnmower would.
They stood watching the object on the ground, and then the neighbor
boys saw something walking along by the fence. Stephen thought it
looked like two bears, and he fired a tracer bullet over the “bears”
heads. The creatures were very tall, one 7 feet, the other over 8
feet tall. These measurements were easier than usual to get because
the entities were silhouetted against the fence and so could be
accurately judged. They were hairy and long-armed, with
greenish-yellow eyes. They made a noise like a baby whining. A smell
like “burning rubber” was present. Stephen, realizing that these
creatures were not bears and that they were coming nearer to him,
fired over the entities’ heads once more and, when they kept on
coming, fired directly at the larger creature.
When the creature was hit, the glowing 150 ft. diameter object
disappeared from the field, instantaneously, and the motor noise
stopped. The two creatures turned around and walked back towards the
woods. In the field where the object had been was a glowing area
about 150 feet in diameter, which was gone by the next morning.
While it was still there, a State Trooper who came to investigate
the story went up to within 200 yards of it, then stopped, went back
to call in the UFO researcher Stan Gordon. The Trooper felt that
Stephen was so disturbed that it was better that he be watched—and
Stephen wouldn’t go near the glowing area.
It was 2 a.m. when Stan Gordon’s Study Group team and Stephen and
his father went back to the landing site. The animals were acting
scared, and Stephen’s dog was tracking something which no one could
see at the edge of the woods. Suddenly Stephen began rubbing his
head and face and looking as though he were about to faint. Several
people approached him, but he threw them off, growling like an
animal and flailing his arms. His own dog ran towards him and
Stephen attacked the dog. Two of the investigators also experienced
some feelings of lightheartedness and difficulty in breathing at
Stephen continued running around, growling and swinging his arms,
and then collapsed in a manured area, face-down. He lay there for a
time, then began to come to himself, and said, “Get away from me.
It’s here. Get back.” Sulfur-like odor was noticed. Stephen and the
group got away from the area, but Stephen kept mumbling that he
would protect the group. He said he saw a man in a black hat and
cloak, who told Stephen, “If Man doesn’t straighten up, the end is
near.” The man also told Stephen, “There is a man here now, who can
save the world.” Needless to say, the investigators present felt
quite concerned about Stephen’s health, and it was here that Dr.
Schwarz was called in.
Dr. Schwarz’s subsequent psychiatric study of
Stephen yielded results that he feels point clearly to the incident
having occurred just as reported, for indeed it would be terrifying
for a man such as Stephen, used to a very practical and realistic
type of life, to shoot and hit an 8-foot antagonist which then was
not harmed in any way. The numerous other witnesses to the various
phases of the incident also bear out its having happened. Who was
the man in black, and what do the predictions about Mankind really
mean? That is a matter for interpretation. But that Stephen had the
experience has been thoroughly documented.

Very early in the morning, truck driver Dionisio Llanca had a flat
tire and pulled off the road in an isolated area. As he set up the
jack to change the tire, he saw lights in the distance, but thought
little of them until, as they approached, they suddenly changed to a
brilliant blue. When Llanca tried to get up and look for the source
of this odd light he found he was apparently paralyzed and could not
move. He was able to see, however, as a dome-topped disc came to
rest, hovering just above the ground near the truck. On the ground
by the craft were three humanoid entities, two men and a woman. They
had long blond hair and elongated eyes, and wore silver, one-piece
suits with high boots, no helmets, no weapons.
After the entities had talked among themselves, one of them lifted
Llanca by the neck of his sweater. Llanca was desperately
frightened, but the man put a small black box against his left index
finger and instantly he began to relax. In a few seconds, he was
The next morning he awakened on the roadside and made his way back
to civilization. He told his story and investigation was undertaken,
but although competent doctors used hypnotherapy and truth serum
with Llanca, he could not remember a portion of his experiences
aboard the craft. He was able to tell the investigators that these
entities had been contacting people on Earth “since 1950,” and that
their purpose was to discover whether Earthmen could live in their
world. He described the interior of the ship, and said that he went
into the ship not by stairs or a ramp, but on a ray of light. But he
reported that the beings did not want him to remember some of his
experience aboard their craft, and he would not be able to. The
message that came from him after intense probing for information was
this, “I have a message from the beings in the craft but I can’t
tell you what it is. No matter what you or any other Earth
scientists do, there will remain the memory lapse while I was on the
The medical personnel working on this case agree with this
statement, and feel that to probe any deeper in Llanca’s
subconscious for this experience might damage his health. But they
feel that his experience was, though unbelievable, quite real.

Investigators: Mssrs. Bazin
Sr. and Jr., Mr. Bigorne, Mr. Boidin, MUFON investigators.
An anonymous witness driving along the French-Belgian border
experienced engine failure. His lights and radio also went out. At
this point he saw a landed UFO about 160 yards away across a field.
The 30-foot wide craft was shaped like a World War I British helmet
and was glowing a patchy orange, with white light coming from
beneath it. Two entities were walking slowly and stiffly toward the
witness. Both were about 4 feet tall, with grayish skin, round eyes,
a rudimentary nose, and a slit-like, lipless mouth. They wore
helmets and metallic gray coverall-type uniforms. One had an object
in his hand shaped like a short, thick ruler with a pointed tip. He
was aiming it at the car.
When the beings came to within 12 feet of the car, one of them
opened and closed his mouth and the witness felt a slight shock at
the back of his head and heard a low-pitched, modulated sound. Then
the entities turned about and reboarded their craft, which began
pulsating an electric-blue glow. Its tripod legs withdrew, it rose
and hovered momentarily, then rapidly ascended at a 60-degree angle.
As the witness prepared to leave the site, another car drove up; its
driver had also seen the UFO and the beings.

A boy in his late teens was driving alone at night and wondering why
doing so—he had almost compulsively gone out to take the ride and
purpose in mind—when a man appeared beside him in the car. He asked
the startled boy if he remembered him, which he did not.
Then suddenly he was inside a large room, he and his car. The
welcomed him aboard, and proceeded to show the boy around the craft.
After the tour was completed, the guide, who looked like a normal
man and was casually dressed in a shirt and blue jeans, asked him to
back into his car. The boy did so and found himself suddenly back on

“Sam” (an alias) had spent an evening with a friend who claimed to
be a contactee of the UFOs. During this meeting, he had asked the
contactee for proof of the UFO’s reality. On the way home from work
the next night, shortly after midnight, his car’s engine and light
died. As he got out of the car he noticed another car stop behind
him. A very prosperous-looking, gray-haired man got out of the car
and came over to him. This normal looking human then offered Sam
“proof,” by dematerializing a rock with a small hand-held implement.
Then he told Sam to “save his marriage,” and promised that he would
be contacted again.
CASE NUMBER 11
Place: Mitchell Caverns, California.
Idabel Epperson, MUFON field investigator.
This witness had seen UFOs several times in the past. One evening he
was awakened in his camper by a humming sound and pulsating lights.
He tried to call his family, but was immobilized. He saw four
pinwheels of odd-shaped colored lights, red, orange, yellow, and
blue-green. He awoke the next morning with bloodshot eyes and an
aching body. It was two hours later than his usual rising time.
He had impressions of having been inside a UFO, but a memory lapse
blocked out details. At a later date, under hypnosis, he recalled
being inside the craft and described a row of gyroscopes along an
inner wall. “The pinwheels of colored lights energized these to form
an artificial gravity field.” He had seen eight men, normal-looking,
seven of them dressed in maroon “foil-like” uniforms, the eighth
clad in a soft, pale-blue outfit. He saw a view screen which was
showing a close-up view of Saturn, a control panel, and three
recliner-type chairs. The entities examined his eyes with a
magnifying glass. The witness says that he expects to receive
further contacts from these entities.
CASE NUMBER 12
Place: Duxbury, Mass.
Investigator: John Giambrone,
MUFON field investigator.
One day, early in the morning, this very reluctant woman witnessed a
red pulsating UFO at treetop level, and two light beams which shone
across the bog caused her car to die, while the radio gave out
static. Not long after this incident, the woman got a telepathic
message to drive her car down a certain road, which she did. Again
the radio and engine quit, but this time four small humanoids
appeared, moving rapidly towards her, each astride a small vehicle
that looked like a roto-tiller but moving rapidly above rather than
on the ground. One of the entities approached her car and
telepathically asked her to open the door, but when she did not
comply, all four doors flew open anyway.
The entity examined her and
touched her on the nape of the neck with a small implement which
left five small puncture marks. She was told that they have
thousands of ships which have been visiting Earth for many years.
They have a mother ship nearby, she was told, and their home planet
is called “Omnius” or “Omnigus.” They have examined many people, not
all of them voluntarily. She was asked not to touch them because of
possible contamination and was warned that she would have severe
headaches for several weeks after this contact. These entities were
four to five feet tall, had helmets on which concealed their faces
but through which small, shiny eyes
could be seen. They were dressed in uniforms, the belts of which
featured an emblem with vertical wavy lines.
This witness was terrified by this encounter and has refused to
allow any investigation by any group. The details given here were
supplied to MUFON in strict anonymity by her husband. This woman
denies to any questioner that the event ever occurred.

Wyoming, Investigator for APRO and MUFON; Rick Kenyon and Robert
Nantkes, MUFON field investigators, and Frank Bourke, National Star
Carl Higdon was hunting elk in the northern area of the park. He
fired at one, but saw his bullet leave the rifle in slow motion and
drop to the snow about 50 feet away. Feeling a tingle, he turned and
saw a humanoid entity over six feet tall standing nearby. The entity
wore a black jumpsuit with a wide belt, upon which was a six-pointed
star and a yellow emblem. The entity had bristle-like, straight hair
standing straight out from his head, small eyes, no eyebrows or
chin, bow-legged, long-armed, and with rod-like manipulators instead
of hands. He might have had hands but Higdon never saw them.
The entity approached Higdon and asked if he was hungry, and flipped
him a little bunch of pills, which Higdon swallowed. (Perhaps the
entity felt that Higdon would not be hunting unless he needed food.)
The entity pointed at Higdon, and suddenly Higdon found himself
within a transparent, cubical “craft” in company with two UFOnauts
and five elk. They told him they were on their way to their home
planet some 163,000 light years away, and shortly they were there.
They had put a helmet with wires sticking out of it on Higdon’s
head. He saw a tall, Seattle space-needle-type building and a type
of sunlight which was very intense and made his eyes water. The
entities told him that our sun does the same thing to their eyes.
The next thing Higdon remembers is being back in the park, about
2½hours having elapsed since the first sight of the entity. He was
cold, disoriented, and nearly hysterical. His truck was not where he
had left it; he found it about three miles away, stuck in a mud
hole. From here he sent out a distress call over his CB radio, and
the Sheriff picked him up at midnight. By now, Higdon was in a state
of panic and near nervous exhaustion, shouting, “They took my elk!”
They took him to the hospital and checked him over; oddly, his blood
tests showed a very rich supply of vitamins— those food pellets must
have been nutritive—and old TB scars on his lungs had disappeared!
Later investigation found that Higdon’s wife and two others had seen
a red-green-white flashing light moving back and forth across this
area. When Dr. Sprinkle used time-regression hypnosis on Higdon, he
found out more about his experience. Higdon was able to recall that
other “Earth people” had been present, and he said that the aliens
had come to Earth to hunt and fish for food.
CASE NUMBER 14
Place: Alamogordo, New Mexico
Staff Sgt. Charles L. Moody, a 32-year-old Air Force man, was parked
near Holloman Air Force Base in the desert, watching for a predicted
meteor shower, at about 1:20 a.m., when suddenly like a flash, an
object appeared, dropping from the sky about 300 feet away. It
stopped about 25 feet above the desert floor and “wobbled” for a
while, then glided toward Moody. As it came closer, Moody could see
that it was a disc-shaped craft which glowed a dull, metallic gray.
It was 40 to 50 feet across and 18 to 25 feet high, with three
globes showing on its underside.
The terrified Moody leapt back into his car and tried to escape, but
his month-old battery was completely dead. Then the craft halted
again, about 50 feet away, and Moody began to hear a high-pitched
voice, and to see shadowy figures through a window which had
appeared in the craft. Quoting the ENQUIRER report: “Suddenly an odd
glow enveloped my car, and I felt numb all over.” Immediately after
the experience, this numb feeling was the last thing Moody
remembered before coming to, sitting in the car, and watching the
craft leave, shooting straight up. But in time, the memory of the
hour and 20 minutes he’d “lost” came back to him.
Two beings had come from the craft, gliding rather than walking.
They started to open the car door and Moody panicked, striking out
at one of the aliens. Then, “the lights went out.” When he regained
consciousness, he was on a table, and an alien was studying him.
Moody was unable to move. The alien, which was hairless,
large-skulled, with no eyebrows and round, large eyes, small nose,
mouth, and ears, and thin lips, “spoke,” but with no lip movement.
He asked if Moody was well, and told him he would release him from
the paralysis if he promised not to strike out. Moody agreed, so the
frail, five-foot tall being in the skin-tight white suit, with
whitish-gray skin, touched Moody with a metal rod about seven inches
long and half an inch thick. Instantly, Moody could move freely.
Moody asked if he could see the craft’s propulsion system, and the
alien agreed, so they left the circular room in which the examining
table was in, and went through an arched doorway and then into
another room, which, Moody reported, seemed almost as large by
itself as the whole craft had looked from the outside. It was as
though the interior of the ship were larger than the outside. In
this room, there were three other beings, one apparently a woman,
floating about a quarter-inch above the floor. The leader told Moody
to stand on a certain part of flooring, and as he did so it dropped,
like an elevator, to a room below. Protruding up from the floor of
this room were the top sides of the three globes he’d seen on the
underside of the craft. The globes contained large crystals, on each
side of which were rods which sloped in toward the crystal.
The aliens gave him other information too, says Moody. They said
that this ship was a small observation craft from a much larger main
craft which stayed 5,000 to 6,000 miles out in space. They also told
Moody that they would be making themselves “known to mankind” within
three years, though they plan only limited contact at first. These
aliens belong to a league of races, which our human race may one day
be invited to join—if they decide to accept us. But whatever
happens, the aliens will never hurt us.
After this conversation, Moody was told to report to a medical
facility, and he lost consciousness again, to wake up in his car. He
watched the craft leave, then easily started his car and went home.
Both his wife and his superior officer are convinced that the very
conservative Sgt. Moody is telling the truth.

Investigators: Coral and Jim Lorenzen, Directors of APRO, Dr. James
Harder, Dir. of Res., APRO.
Travis Walton and six other men had been working in the forest all
day, thinning wood with chain saws. They were riding back to town at
about six o’clock when they saw a yellowish glow ahead of them and
to the right. The truck was on a right-hand curve, and it bumped
along until suddenly it came to a clearing, where they had a very
clear view of the object causing the glow. It was about 15 feet in
diameter and 8 feet high, and was hovering about 15 feet above the
ground, about 90 feet from their truck. They were able to estimate
the size of the craft because it was hovering over a pile of slash
and was about its size. The craft was glowing with a color “like a
Coleman Lantern being lit.”
When Travis saw the object he asked the driver to stop; then without
waiting for the truck to completely halt, he jumped out and walked
quickly over to the pile of slash. The object gave off a beeping
noise and began to oscillate around its vertical axis. There were
other rumbling noises. Then a bright, narrow ray of greenish-blue
light shot out from the craft and struck Walton. A bright, soundless
flash surrounded Walton’s body and lifted him a foot into the air
and backwards, with his head knocked back and his arms outflung. One
of the other men saw Walton fall to the ground after this, but all
were busy running from the scene.
They stopped about a quarter of a mile away, just as a light lifted
up through the trees in the direction from which they had just come
and streaked away. They decided to go back and find Walton. They
were back at the landing site in 15 minutes, but could find no trace
of the craft or of Walton. They finally gave up searching and went
to the Sheriff’s office to report the incident and the missing
Walton. The Sheriff noted later that these men were extremely upset,
one even weeping. Later polygraph tests bore out that they were
telling the truth about their experience.
In the next days, a thorough search, involving about 50 men, was
made for Walton. After 2 days, the search was called off, and a
missing persons report filed.
On November 11th, Travis Walton called his sister from a telephone
booth in a nearby town. His voice was extremely weak. Her husband
and her brother went to find Walton, and discovered him slumped on
the floor of the booth from which he had called. He was twelve miles
from the spot at which he had last been seen. He had a strange story
to relate, and little by little the details were told. When he
regained consciousness after being hit by the ray, he was lying on a
table in a low-ceilinged room. There was apparatus resting on his
lower chest. He had pains in his head and to a lesser extent all
over his body.
Around him stood three entities, about 5 feet tall,
with large eyes, small noses, mouths, and ears, and no hair. They
wore brown coveralls. Travis was panicked by the sight of these
“human fetuses” and knocked the apparatus off his chest, striking
out at the entities. The creatures calmly left the room, turning
right out the doorway. Travis followed them, turning left. He went
down the hall and into another room, which featured a transparent
wall through which he could see what he thought were stars. He sat
in a chair which had push buttons on its arm, and pushed one of the
But the stars then started to move, so he left the buttons
alone. A man in a blue outfit and transparent helmet came into the
room and beckoned that Walton follow him. He did not answer his
questions, but merely led him out of the craft, through an airlock,
and down a ramp. He was now in a large enclosure in which several
disc-shaped objects were parked. The air was fresher than before,
the light brighter. His guide took him into another craft where he
met three more humans, two men and a woman, who wore blue clothing
but no helmets. They all closely resembled one another. At this
point a mask, resembling an oxygen mask, was put over Walton’s face,
and he lost consciousness.
When he regained his senses, he was lying on his back on a road. He
felt the heat of a disc-shaped object which was rising into the sky
above him, the doors on its bottom just closing. Walton recognized
the road, walked unsteadily to the nearest phone, and called his
sister. Six days had elapsed.
Tests performed immediately after Walton’s return show some
dehydration but no malnutrition and no possibility of drug use. The
lost time is blocked by a strong memory block, and APRO’s careful
report stated that it might be months before further information
about the lost time can be extracted from Walton’s subconscious.
