Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Someone told via the Internet that in Colorado, in an unspecified place, remembering the thing badly but strangely remembering the date of April 16, 1955, and the hour of 04:30 p.m., whereas he was 5 years old, in the fields, getting the cows back for milking, he suddenly saw, close to the farm, a very large white oval object land on the road ahead.

The witness could feel heat come from the silent object, was not afraid at all, went to touch the machine; which felt fresh at the touch.

His next memory was of two "blue white" people coming at him, standing there, one of them wore shirt and trousers and took him by the hand to a door in the side of the object.

His next memory was stand in the road with his cowboy boots in the hands and his grandfather coming fast, asking where he had been, as it was already 01:30 a.m., i.e. 9 hours later.

He tried to the grandfather what had happened, but the grandfather told him to shut up about the incident, and told later than while search for him, he had seen a luminous flash and then an object taking off at high speed, and when he ran there, he found his grandson standing on the road boots in hands.

The witness specifies that he has only brief flashes of memories of what happened inside and gives no detail about that.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Colorado, at an exact location not given, on April 16, 1955, at 1630, the five year old witness was out in the fields in order to bring the cows home for his father to milk, as his brothers and grandfather fed the rest of the livestock. Suddenly near the farm a very large object white in color and oval-shaped landed on the road in front of him. The witness could feel warmth coming from the silent object. Somehow the witness did not feel any fear and approached the object, touching it. It felt cool to the touch, despite the heat. His next memory was of seeing two "people" come towards him and stand in front of him, one of the figures who was wearing a blue shirt and white pants extended his hand out to the witness and then led him to a doorway on the side of the landed object. His next memory was of standing in the road with his cowboy boots in his hands and his grandfather running to him asking where have he been, it was already 01:30 a.m. in the morning 9 hours later. He tried to tell his grandfather what had occurred but his grandparent told him to keep quiet about the whole thing. Later his grandfather told him that while searching for him he had seen a flash and then saw a bright object lift up and take off at high speed, when he ran to the location he found him standing on the road holding his boots. The witness only has brief memory flashes of what occurred inside. No details are given.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is http://mufoncms.com

Albert Rosales comments that apparently there was no hypnotic regression performed on the witness.

Points to consider:

The report seems to have been removed from the MUFON reports in the web.

Those reports are simply reports submitted by readers, without being verified or investigated, as they are generally anonymous.

In fact, the witness being aged 5 then, and submitting a report in the Internet era, with, of course, vague memories, it is not absurd to propose that he had actually seen a helicopter landing and had an encounter with the pilots, who are indeed described as human.
