Then two days after the sighting, and now with them being in a different location in the Allagash Wilderness, the four men proceeded to do some night fishing. They built a big bonfire at their camp site on the lake / rivers edge to act as a location marker of where to get back to when coming in from fishing on the river. While the men were in the boat on the river, one of them had a feeling that something was behind him so he turned around and seen a bright ball of light that looked just like the UFO the group were observing a few nights ago. He told the rest of the guys and they all sat in the boat staring at this bright ball of light. One of the men then thought it would be a good idea to use his torch to try and communicate with this UFO by flashing the SOS signal directly toward it.
To their surprise, this light ball UFO actually responded, shining a beam down on them in the boat! It responded in the most scariest way possible. By coming after them! As you can imagine, once the UFO was coming to check them out, the men were in a panic and started paddling as fast as the could in the opposite direction trying to get away from this thing that was fast approaching. But all the paddling was to no avail as the UFO had gained too much ground and before they knew it they were engulfed in the beam of light.
After that moment, at the time the men all drew a blank as to what had just happened. They found themselves out of the boat and on the river bank looking up at the UFO. One of the men then tried to use his torch to signal the UFO again but this time the UFO ignored any more interaction with the men. They watched it take off in the sky and vanish, only to then reappear further up in the sky. Then after that it disappeared and never returned.
The men returned to the camp site where they had earlier made a big bonfire, but now the bonfire was nothing more than ash and hot coals. All the men claimed that they were only out on the river for around twenty minutes so it seemed impossible that the big bonfire could have burned out within that time frame. So its clear that the men have experienced missing time, quite possibly several hours. It also seemed like whatever the "UFO" was, it done something to the men's minds in order to make them not only calm, but not remember what had actually taken place during the time loss they had experienced.
It wasn't until over a decade later that two of the men, the two that were twin brothers, starting have nightmares about aliens, creatures, and in the dream seeing themselves and the friends that they went camping with in the Allagash Wilderness all in a room together, sitting down naked. The dreams got so intense that the men underwent hypnosis to see if the dreams had anything to do with the encounter they had with the UFO on the river all those years ago.
They found out that the dreams were memory's of the abduction. All the men had the same recollection of what happened. When the light engulfed them and their boat, they were taken up onto the UFO and placed in a room where they were all made to undress. In turn, all the men were "Operated" on by alien beings. The aliens acquired samples of the men's epidermis (Skin), blood and semen. All the men stated that while they were sitting in the "room" waiting for their turn to be operated on, they were totally powerless to resist and seemed to be almost paralysed to do anything other than just sit there and obey.
As scary as this case is, its actually quite a routine abduction and has many of the common signs and symptoms that many people who have been abducted experience. Time loss, being operated on, samples taken, can't remember anything, powerless to resist, and nightmares. I'm not sure if any of the men who were abducted have ever been tested for implants, but it would be a good idea as its very possible that they could have been "Tagged" with an implant somewhere in their bodies. And still have that implant to this day. The men were certainly abducted for long enough (Time loss of several hours) for implants to be a possibility.
Could it be that the most important operational procedure the "Aliens" carried out on the men (Inserting an Implant) is the memory that the aliens make permanently unrecallable as to make sure that the Implanted device is never discovered and removed..I mean, it took the men well over a decade to recall that something more than they remembered that night had even taken place. And then it took hypnosis for them to recollect the extraction of blood and semen samples that the aliens performed. So implants can't be ruled out as it seems these "Aliens" have a good, but not perfect "tool" for being able to rub out memories. Kinda makes you think that the memory erasing flash gun used in the Men In Black films could be real after all! Did Hollywood get the idea from alien technology...Who knows for sure. A book was written about the Allagash Alien Abductions which contains a lot of information that wasn't included in any of the Television accounts of the story.
