MAY 1965, MURDOCHVILLE, QUEBEC, CANADA, SONIA GAGNON:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

It seems that in a catalogue of close encounters of the third kind by ufologist Denis Breysse, a case appears, in Murdochville, Quebec, Canada, on May 1965, in the morning.

We are told that 8-year old Sonia Gagnon was on her way to school when she encountered a "strange female figure with long brown hair and brown eyes", dressed in black an white, looking sad, who chattered with the young girl.

The girl seemed to have "lost track of time and was suddenly snapped out of an apparent trance-like state by the sounds of bells ringing." She arrived late to school and had apparently been missing "for some time".

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Murdochville, Quebec, Canada, on May 1965, in the morning, 8-year old Sonia Gagnon was on her way to school when she encountered a strange female figure with long brown hair and brown eyes; the figure appeared very sad and engaged the witness in conversation. The young witness seemed to have lost track of time and was suddenly snapped out of an apparent trance-like state by the sounds of bells ringing. She arrived late to school and had apparently been missing for some time. She could only recall that the strange woman wore a black and white outfit.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Denys Breysse, Project Becassine, and wonder if this could be an unexplored abduction event.

Points to consider:

I find it uncanny that such a story was considered a case of close encounter of the third kind!

All we have here is an 8 years old girl chatting with a sad lady dressed in black and white on the way to school!
