1955, MOAB, UTAH, USA, A YOUNG PEOPLE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A ufology catalogue indicates that in Moab, Utah, in 1955, late in the afternoon, a young witness involved in previous encounters was playing in his backyard alone. His mother washed clothes on the back porch, and went inside the kitchen for four minutes.

When she came back outside, the young person was not there. "They" searched for him all over the neighborhood and he was found an hour later crying inside a coal box on the back of the house.

Asked how he got there, he told only several "little men", not described, had carried him there. There is no other information.

A kid surely young enough to remain in a "coal box", likely put there as a cruel prank by older kids he was reluctant to involve, "disappeared" for only one hour, found behind the house, hardly makes for the smoking gun anyway.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Moab, Utah, in 1955, late in the afternoon, the young witness, involved in previous encounters, was playing in his backyard alone while his mother washed clothes on the back porch. She went inside to the kitchen for 4 minutes and came back out to see the witness missing. They searched for him all over the neighborhood and found him an hour later crying and inside a coal box on the back of the house. Asked how he got there, the witness could only remember that several "little men", not described, had carried him there. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is UFO Experiencer Support.

Points to consider:

"UFO Experiencer Support" is unhelpful as reference, and probably meant one undefined UFO experiencers support group. I was unable to locate any such group mentioning the story, probably a summary of something alleged in such a group.

This is a case of low strangeness, involving a "young" person's tale, with not enough information, no description, and no UFO.

A kid surely young enough to remain in a "coal box", likely put there as a cruel prank by older kids he was reluctant to involve, "disappeared" for only one hour, found behind the house, hardly makes for the smoking gun anyway.
