The six-year old witness had gone into some woods in order to relieve himself when he saw what he describes as a huge praying Mantis in front of him in the woods. It was sideways to him with its head turned looking straight at him. He was horrified almost sick to his stomach. Soon he heard his mom and others calling him by name. He ran a few steps where he had heard his mom and she came running toward him and reprimanded him for being gone for over an hour (which he could not remember any of it).

Air Force Sgt Jonathan P. Lovette and a Major Conningham were out in a field from the launch sites looking for debris from a missile test when Sgt Lovette went over the ridge of a small sand dune and was out of sight for a time. Major Conningham then heard Sgt Lovette scream in what was described as terror or agony. The Major thinking Lovette had been bitten by a snake or something ran over the crest of the dune and saw Sgt Lovette being dragged into what appeared to him and was described as being a silvery disc-like object which hovered in the air approximately 15 to 20 ft away. Major Conningham described what appeared to be a long snake-like object, which was wrapped around the sergeant’s legs and was dragging him to the craft. Major Conningham admittedly froze as the sergeant was dragged inside the disc and observed the disc going up into the sky very quickly. Major Conningham got on the jeep radio and reported the incident to Missile Control whereupon Missile Control confirmed a radar sighting. Search parties went into the desert looking for Lovette. Major Conningham’s report was taken and he was admitted to the White Sands Base Dispensary for observation. The search for Sgt Lovette continued for three days at the end of which his nude body was found approximately ten miles downrange. The body had been mutilated; the tongue had been removed from the lower portion of the jaw. An incision had been made just under the tip of the chin and extended all the way back to the esophagus and larynx. He had been emasculated and his eyes had been removed. Also, his anus had been removed and there were comments in the report on the apparent surgical skill of the removal of these items including the genitalia. The report commented that the anus and the genitalia had been removed, as though a plug, which in the case of the anus extended all the way to the colon. His body had also been completely drained of all blood.

Summary: 1st Lt. Donald A. Stoner flying an F-86D at 22,000 feet on an air defense mission saw a target on his radar that moved up the scope rapidly and faded. The pilot later stated that this incident was peculiar and worthy of calling this incident to someone’s attention “for as I say I had never before seen such rapid target movement away from an aircraft going almost 300 mph in the same general direction.” The pilot also stated, “I have 560 hours in the F-86D, 930 hours total time.” Types of observations listed as, Ground-Radar, and Air-Intercept Radar.

Summary: A round bright blue object, trailing a heavy yellow-orange fire and sparks was observed for approximately 60 seconds by the pilot and co-pilot from an aircraft at 30,500 feet altitude. The object appeared to be 2-3 miles to the left of the aircraft and 2000 to 5000 feet above. Both pilots estimated the object to be traveling at 500-600 knots. The overall shape of the object was teardrop shaped.

While walking along the river bank a 27-year old laboratory technician named Bassett “felt the presence of something” and looked up. He saw a rapidly descending metallic sphere that gave off an orange glow; it then stopped just ten feet away and only four feet above the ground. It made no sound. He “lost track of time” and felt the UFO had tried to make contact with him. There was possible missing time associated with this case.

Summary: A strange blip appeared on Westover tower radar scopes. Jets were quickly scrambled, then vectored toward the circling UFO. Flying the lead interceptor, Captain E______, closed in on a large round object, near enough to illuminate it with his landing lights. The strange machine appeared to be 100 to 150 feet in diameter, and 8 to 12 feet thick at the center. The pilot noted a green fluorescent glow around the outer edge. As he tried to get closer, the weirdly glowing disc, climbed steeply, the disappeared in the night at 30,000 feet. The report named a tower operator and radioman, besides the jet pilot.
