The investigation about the
mysterious craft seen in Derval

The result of the investigation by the police of Derval who collected the statements of two persons who, on October 5, late afternoon, would have seen, Derval, a mysterious machine, are now known.

It was a farmer who came back from the field, and a child who came home from school.

The first claims to have seen, some three hundred meters high, a cigar-shaped craft, first moving vertically, then coming down, then disappearing behind a clump of pine trees. The kid, meanwhile, reportedly saw this thing at about the same jour, around 6 p.m., just from the other side of the pine woods, but this time on the ground, on a meadow. Frightened, he ran away.

The statements of the two witnesses are quite consistent, declaring, for the first, that the object was of a gray color, and the for second, gray but dotted with yellow and orange hues. Neither one nor the other saw a human being.
