Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Richmond, Indiana, on December 16, 1978, at 1940, five witnesses reported seeing an object resembling a missile nose hovering in front of their vehicle. An abduction ensued in which strange creatures (not described) were reported. One of the female witnesses reported a missing fetus afterward. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "UFO Intelligence Newsletter, January 1995 Quoting Don Worley."

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 16 December 1978 at 19:40 in Richmond, Indiana, USA, "Five witnesses reported seeing an object resembling a missile nose hovering in front of their vehicle. An abduction ensued in which strange creatures (not described) were reported. One of the female witnesses reported a missing fetus afterward. No other information."

The source is a broken link.

Points to consider:

The lack of information on the case is just as stunning as the claims.
