Reports:

[Ref. hm1:] JOURNAL "LE HAUT MARNAIS REPUBLICAIN":

Approximately ten days ago, a young girl of Montlandon, G., aged 14, is said to have seen a saucer, or at least a mysterious machine, which landed at a few tens of meters of her. The child kept the cows in a field rather far away from the country when she saw, about midday, an apparatus in the shape of a disc, flying not far from her, which landed and rolled up to the edge of the very close wood, before rising again in the air. A man equipped with a kind of white cassock controlled the saucer.

The informed gendarmerie of Langres is said to have proceeded with an investigation. No contradiction is said to have been found in the account of the young girl who is said to really have seen something. The research of the investigators did not manage to find traces on the spot of the landing.

The most complete secrecy had been held up to now on this affair but in our villages all ends up being known and the inhabitants of Montlandon do wonder what the strange apparatus which chose the territory of their commune to land is.

Case #18

October 19, 1954 in Montlandon (52).

A few days after Neuilly-l'Evêque, it is a young girl of Montlandon, little G., 14 years old, who would have seen a saucer, or at least a mysterious machine, landd within a few tens of meters of her. The child keeps the cows in a field rather far away in the country, when she sees, about midday, an apparatus in the shape of a flying disc which lands not far from her then rolls to the horn of a very close wood before rising again in the airs. A man dressed in a kind of white cassock controls the saucer. The gendarmerie of Langres, informed, proceeded to an investigation. No contradiction was found in the account of the young girl who really saw something. The investigations of the investigators did not make it possible to find traces on the landing spot. (Ref.: Magazine #2 of Group 5255 based on le haut-Marnais Républicain for 10/29/54).
