The Australian ufologist indicates that under hypnosis a woman recalled that as a 12 year-old girl in 1978 in Papua New Guinea she was abducted. The witness declined further investigations due to the nature of the accounts, which emerged under hypnosis. No published version of the case exists.

The source is indicated as "UFORA89057. UFO Research Queensland."

Points to consider:

The data is totally insufficient and the case apparently rests entirely on the use of hypnosis.
