Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Someone reported that whereas she was a 7-year-old girl, in Richmond, Virginia, in 1965, she was going to sleep, it was late in the night, but she was not asleep yet, and as she looked at a corner of the bedroom, there was a little man floating in the air.

He was dressed in silver, had a silver-bluish skin, a helmet with a clear mask, white eyes and very red lips. The girl thought that the small man tried to talk to her but was unable to.

She became scared and run out of the bedroom.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Richmond, Virginia, in 1965, late at night, a young girl, age about seven, was going to sleep, but insists that she wasn't asleep yet. She looked over into the corner of her bedroom and there was a little man floating in the air. He was dressed in silver and had skin of silvery blue. He had white eyes and very red lips. He had a helmet with a clear mask. He looked at her like he was trying to talk to her but couldn't. She got scared and ran out of the room.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Michael D. Swords, "Grassroots UFOs" and comments that it is a bedroom visitation.

Points to consider:

With insufficient information, with very likely a late reporting dated based on childhood memories, no evidence, a single witness who was a 7-year-old child in bed, with an entity that looks more like a folklore character than some being from another planet, no UFO, it is possible that the case is the late memories of a frightening and vivid hypnagogic hallucination sleep experience. In such experiences, the subject can very honestly swear that he or she was not asleep but awake, that it was much to vivid to be a dream, and indeed hypnagogic hallucination are much more vivid than dreams as the subject is indeed not really asleep.

I provide a few references among dozens about the topic of hypnagogic hallucination and sleep paralysis:
