People are disappearing in Surrey.
Since 1989 some 20 Surrey residents
have claimed to have been abducted by aliens, says Lorne
Goldfader, director of the UFO Research Institute of Canada.
A majority of the abductions occurred around the city's
electrical power grids.
Many of the abductees claim to have
been taken into a spacecraft, but most chose not to go public for
fear of ridicule.
As the experience is often
accompanied by amnesia, says Goldfader, it often takes a while
before the abductees are able to piece together what happened to
them. The memories usually surface through association,
triggered by seeing an object that looks like something they saw
in the craft, or medical conditions causing them to recall alien
So far none of the abductees have
contacted the Surrey RCMP. "We haven't got any reports
of people gone missing or abducted by UFOs." Surrey RCMP
Insp. Larry Gallagher said Friday.
On Sept. 10, several Surrey residents
reportedly saw a large UFO hovering about 75 to 100 feet above a
townhouse complex in Newton.
Residents reported their electrical
appliances were affected and one family's computer spewed out
bizarre hieroglyphics, which were later analyzed and deemed
unrelated to the sighting.
Witnesses stood amazed, gazing at the
large disc-shaped object. It was about the size of a 747
jet, they say, its circumference dotted with red strobic lights.
The sighting occurred at dusk. Daniel
Watts, 16, was on his front lawn when he heard neighborhood
children screaming and looked to the sky. The objects'
underbelly was seamless and looked like it was made of aluminum.
The craft remained stationary for
about 15 seconds, giving Daniel time to call out for his mother,
Alison. She reached the front steps in time to see the
object "flip" on its side and dash away, and then she
rushed upstairs to make sure her baby Nicholas was still there.
