ROSSWELL [sic] - NEW MEXICO (AP). -- US Army has announced that a "flying disk" has been found in a farm near Rosswell [sic] and that it is currently in possession of its services.

This discovery occurred "during last week."

The disk has been handed to the authorities of the airfield of the military base of Rosswell [sic] by the local police.

The army has communicated no additional detail about this sensational discovery.
