MAY 1959, SUPERSTITION MOUNTAINS, ARIZONA, USA, TWO PROSPECTORS:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

"Commander X", an anonymous author who claims to be a former military intelligence operative wrote the book "Underground Alien Bases", in which he claims that flying saucers are coming from inside the Earth through an ancient tunnel system that has existed since the time of Atlantis, with entrance ways in many major cities.

He reports that in the Superstition Mountains, Arizona, on May 1959, at night, two prospectors told a strange story while visiting with an oldtimer of the Phoenix area. They claimed that for several days they noticed what they at first thought to be several small children playing near and in a small creek, which had water in it only during the early spring season. They were quite familiar with the many "strange" deaths that had occurred in this area and wisely felt that children had no business there.

These small "children" appeared to be about five or six years old and would be seen in the same dry creek bed day after day as the prospectors went about their diggings. One day they decided to investigate and see what children could possibly be doing in such an area. When they reached the creek bed they discovered to their amazement that the "children" had completely vanished but there were very fresh footprints in the sand. These prints appeared as miniature duplicates of engineer boots.

Although the miners returned to the same spot the next day they reportedly never saw the "children" again. "Commander X" also claims that other witnesses claim to have seen these little "children" at closer range and said they look more like men than children, and that some ranchers, while on roundups in this same area, say that they could clearly see "little men" as they called them, on the tops of ridges and mountains of the superstition range, watching them.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Superstition Mountains, Arizona, on May 1959, at night, two prospectors told a strange story while visiting with an old time of the Phoenix area. They claimed that for several days they noticed what they at first thought to be several small children playing near and in a small creek, which had water in it only during the early spring season. They were quite familiar with the many "strange" deaths that had occurred in this area and wisely felt that children had no business there. These small "children" appeared to be about five or six years old and would be seen in the same dry creek bed day after day as the prospectors went about their diggings. One day they decided to investigate and see what children could possibly be doing in such an area. When they reached the creek bed they discovered, to their amazement that the "children" had completely vanished but there, still very fresh in the sand, were footprints. These prints appeared as miniature duplicates of engineer boots. Although the miners returned to the same spot the next day they reportedly never saw the "children" again. Other witnesses claim to have seen these little "children" at closer range and say they look more like men than children. Some ranchers, while on roundups in this same area, say that they could clearly see "little men" as they called them, on the tops of ridges and mountains of the superstition range watching them.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Commander X, Underground Alien Bases.

Points to consider:

"Commander X", the source for this story, is the pseudonym of an author who claims to be a former military intelligence operative; in his book "Underground Alien Bases", he claims that flying saucers are coming from inside the Earth through an ancient tunnel system that has existed since the time of Atlantis, with entrance ways in many major cities.

There seems to be no other source to indepently confirm this story.
