Go Back Report # 468


       Around midnight one moonlit night in May, 1974, Manoel Pacheco Juca, forty-seven, and a friend, Pedro, had been fishing along the Atlantic coast two miles from his farm near Paraipaba, Ceará. They were walking to another location when Manoel looked back over his shoulder and saw something that hadn't been there minutes earlier.

       About forty yards away were three men standing near what looked like a jeep near the water. Manoel and Pedro were frightened. They ducked down and watched. The strangers were dressed in dark clothing and apparently did not see them.

       Five times the three strangers hurried side by side into the ocean and just as quickly returned to the jeep. They were wet and seemed to be measuring something with a rope. They said nothing, and no sounds were heard. After about three minutes, the three climbed into the jeep and disappeared into the ocean, jeep and all.
