Travis, who cops thought had been murdered, believes he was taken into a spacecraft by extra-terrestrials before being returned to earth five days later
THE man involved in one of the most infamous alien abduction cases of all time has hit out at skeptics and non-believers – saying 16 separate lie detector tests – taken by himself and witnesses to the unexplained 1975 incident – prove his story is TRUE.
Travis Walton, disappeared without a trace after he and the crew of loggers he worked with claimed to have seen a huge UFO in the forest they were working in.
Originally crew members were suspected of murder but Travis reappeared five days later saying he had been taken into a space craft by alien creatures.
The dad-of-four says he has spent the past 40 year defending himself against those trying to discredit him – and has even written a book debunking every alternate theory to what happened to him.
The 64-year-old, who says the incident is still “fresh in his mind’, told the Sun Online it was important to share his story because the public have a right to “know what’s out there”.
Travis, a logger in the mountains of Arizona, was leaving work on November 5, 1975, with five crew members in a truck when the alleged incident took place.
They saw some glimmers of light through the trees – and pulled up, thinking it was a fire.
“When we pulled up into the light where we had straight view – it was unmistakable I yelled stop and one of the guys in the back said it’s a spaceship or a flying saucer it was less than 100 feet away,” Travis said.
