1956, THORNTON, COLORADO, USA, A SCHOOLGIRL:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A US ufology protest group against UFO secrecy seemingly noted that in Thornton Colorado, in 1956, at an unknown time, "in a dream-like state", a girl "found herself" walking to school, when, at a corner, she found herself enveloped in a blue light.

Next thing she knew, she was surrounded by "a group of human looking beings" who asked her if she wanted to visit their home; and she agreed.

She was then taken to a room, and sat in "some kind of molded bucket-like seat", then arrived "at an unknown location" where she was led down a ramp into a corral type fenced area, surrounded by giant flowers, of every kind and color. In the middle of this "corral" was a big swing set.

Eventually somebody said that it was time to go home, she walked up the ramp into "a vehicle" and her next recollection was of standing at the same corner with the blue light around her: which just snapped off then.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates that in Thornton Colorado, in 1956, at an unknown time, in a dream like state the witness found herself walking to school, when, at a corner, she found herself enveloped in a blue light. Next thing she knew she was surrounded by a group of human looking beings. They asked her if she wanted to visit their home and she agreed. She was then taken to a room, and sat in some kind of molded bucket like seat. Upon arriving at an unknown location she was led down a ramp into a corral type fenced in area. Around its perimeter were giant flowers, of every kind and color. In the middle of the corral was a big swing set. Eventually somebody said that it was time to go home. She walked up the ramp into a vehicle. Her next recollection was of standing at the same corner with the blue light around her. The light then just snapped off.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is CAUS.

Points to consider:

What we have here is somehow typical of a number of so-called "cases" supposedly showing that there are "millions of aliens abductions": a blatantly incomplete file, missing all the crucial information that could, eventually, allow to understand what this was all about.

Where exactly is the original source? Where is the investigation report, if any? If none, where is the original witness statement?

How old was the witness? We are not told. Obviously it was a young schoolgirl. But why is her age at the time of the experience not indicated?

When did it take place exactly? We do not know. Is this not a tell-tale sign that she was indeed very young, that she did not report it at the time to any adult person who would have recorded the weird experience? What was the time, was the witness going to school or going back home? Was there any check of any incident recorded by the school or the parents?

Where did it take place exactly? Thornton Colorado of course, what school was the witness attending, in what street was she? A crowded main street? An isolated country way?

When exactly was the experience reported? It does not appear to have been published in 1956. Was it reported 10 years later? 20, 30, 50 years later? Why is the possible huge time gap between the memory of an apparently child witness and the actual report, likely by an adult and much later, not doucmented?

And, even more disturbing: was the report made in a normal state of consciousness, a report of conscious memories? Or is it, as in many other similar case, a story of a person who became interested in finding out about some vague childhood memories and about UFOs in general, who was then sent to some ufologist's "hypnotic regression sessions"; which of course simply could not fail to "uncover" all sorts of actually unrelated and distorted memories about a blue light and big flowers, turning simple, ordinary, and vague memories of a kids playground swing and other ordinary events or dreams memories into a so-called alien abduction?
