Summary: On a cold clear night Donna Butts, her mother in law and two children were en route to Kansas City and had been following a semi tractor-trailer for miles. As they approached a hill and curve they noticed a bright light beyond the hill and the whole area lit up. The truck and the witness vehicle suddenly slowed down as they both saw a huge brightly lit object hovering above them. Both the trucker and Butts panicked and accelerated their vehicles; the object was huge and consisted of three triangular sections. It had green and glowing peach colored lights, at the bottom it had a huge white light and was emitting a loud vibrant hum. As the witness was about to pass the truck the object shot down a beam of light that hit the highway directly behind her car, the beam followed the car and hit the truck, it then suddenly disappeared, and so did the truck. At the same time several small aircraft and helicopters appeared to circle the object and the area. The small aircraft seemed cubical in shape and appeared to be playing tag with the helicopters. She also noticed army trucks in the area. Later under hypnosis they learned that they had been taken onboard the object where the main witness had a conversation with certain entities. No other information.

Summary: Hours after independent witnesses sighted circular luminous objects maneuvering over the area, two witnesses were driving back to town when they saw what appeared to be a human figure standing in the middle of the roadway. As the witnesses drove closer to the figure they had to swerve the car in order to avoid hitting it. The figure was described as very tall and wearing beige colored coverall that covered its whole body including the head. The head appeared shapeless and the figure moved back in stiff movements almost mechanical. The driver of the car accelerated the vehicle and left the area at high speed.

Location: Wicomico River, Maryland
Time: night
Summary: An area around Maryland’s eastern shore is reputed to be the home of a bizarre entity dubbed the “Cat Man”. Four people parked near a landfill looked out to see two yellow eyes looking in the car window. Frightened they quickly left the area but soon decided to return. They returned in two cars this time and parked them at angles so they could direct the headlights and be able to see more area. Soon they saw something crouched down and moving towards them. The creature came over to them on all fours. He was all black and hairy, and had claws or hook like fingernails on each hand. He came over to one car and hooked his claws on the car and looked inside the window. His yellow eyes glowed in the dark as he peered inside. Again terrified, the witnesses started the car causing the creature to fall away from the car letting out a high-pitched scream and run away. Scratch marks were reportedly found on the car.

Summary: Two men, Barry & Russell were walking on a road toward Cushing’s Hill to meet their girlfriend’s who lived nearby. They heard noises—something large and moving—from both sides of the wooded road and momentarily, five figures converged in the middle of the remote road. They were all very tall, and there were no necks apparent beneath their cone-shaped heads. Both men ran away. Around the same time Barry’s girlfriend was coming to meet them from the other direction when she saw an enormous bipedal hairy thing reaching into the garbage can near her house, taking out food and devouring it. She had a small dog with her, who acted terrified during the encounter.

Summary: A deputy sheriff on routine patrol had stopped to rest and was standing next to his police vehicle when he noticed a large black triangular shaped craft hovering at an angle about 200 feet away. The craft had large windows on its side and five humanoid figures could be seen standing inside from the waist up. The beings were gray colored with large heads, slim necks and slim bodies. No other features could be seen. As the witness stood watching in amazement he apparently received a telepathic message, “Why do you hate the Iranians?” it asked. He thought to himself that he did not hate anybody. At that moment one of the figures turned and faced the others, as this happened the object suddenly shot up and disappeared at high speed.

Summary: The main witness and her son were traveling on Pinebush Road when she spotted some bright lights approaching from the east. The witness pulled over and stopped the car thinking that it was an airplane in distress. The lights now approached and stopped nearby, the witness could now see a dark metallic dome shaped craft behind the light. Now more lights turned on, on top of the hovering craft. The witness now felt hypnotized by the lights, she then had a floating sensation and felt drawn towards the craft. Here next recollection was of seeing the craft shoot straight up and disappear. Later under hypnosis she recalled being taken into a small craft that was cold inside, then into a larger object. She was then surrounded by numerous short ugly beings with large bright eyes that were somewhat insect like. She was then taken through a long tunnel with rough edges. She then entered a room with bright lights, there her clothes were removed, and she was medically examined. The beings communicated by using telepathy and told the witness she had been “rejected.” Another being with three eyes was apparently in charge and commanded the others. She was finally released. The witness suffered many painful after effects similar to some type of radiation damage. Her son was apparently not abducted.
