Go Back Report # 1459




1980 - At 9:05 p.m. a woman with the last name of Riley was driving her car in Redding, California, accompanied by her two teenage daughters (15 and 14 years old) and by another 13-year-old girl, when they were frightened by the sudden appearance of a patch of smoke or fog that suddenly enveloped their van. All normal noises ceased, while the women seemed to "float" inside a "cloud."Very worried, as soon as they were able to leave the "cloud" they drove to a friend's house, where they discovered that they could not account for 30 minutes of time. During the hours that followed, they suffered from various physiological reactions and the following day, marks resembling strange punctures appeared on the skin of two of the girls. Soon afterwards they experienced strange dreams in which "men" were pointing strange weapons or objects at their heads. The witnesses reported the strange event to the police who advised them to contact a private UFO organization.
