Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Skeptic ufologist Allan Hendry seems to have indicated in 1980 that in Tyler, Texas, in May 1977, at 01:15 a.m., a person heard a sound of growl outside, came out to investigate, and then saw two strange dark characters standing on his porch.

These beings did not have any facial characteristics, no hand, no feet and floated 10 inches above the ground.

It is said that strange traces were found, and that one later night, this witness and his girlfriend saw a silver disc with four white-blue lights hovering above the area.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Tyler, Texas, on May 1977, at 01:15 a.m., hearing a growling sound outside the witness stepped out to investigate.

He then saw two tall dark figures standing on his porch. The beings had no facial features, no hands or feet and were floating ten inches above the ground.

Strange tracks were found and on a later night the witness and his girlfriend saw a hovering silvery disc with four blue white lights over the area.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Allen Hendry, UFO update, Probe Sept 1980.

Points to consider:

The information of the short summary is not sufficient. Many basic pieces are missing, such as the age of the witness, his profile, if there were or not an investigation, how, when and to whom the witness reported and so on.

It is thus not possible for me to propose any sensible evaluation.
