The Alan Godfrey Penculikan, November 28, 1980

Dari U-K. ufologist Jenny Randles
Pada bulan November dan Desember 1980, sebelah timur Inggris mengalami penampakan UFO gelombang besar. Ada kejar-kejaran dari UFO dengan mobil polisi di dekat pantai, sebuah UFO yang overflew sebuah rig minyak di Laut Utara, dan gelombang memuncak pada peristiwa yang terkenal di pantai Timur Anglikan di Rendlesham Hutan.

Hanya sebulan sebelum ini pendaratan di samping mereka pangkalan udara NATO, salah satu kasus yang paling mengesankan penculikan asing terjadi di kota Penninemill kecil Todmorden, West Yorkshire, tepat di tengah luas jendela paling aktif Inggris dikenal secara lokal sebagai “UFO Alley” .

Polisi Polisi Alan Godfrey tengah berpatroli pada malam 28 Nopember 1980. Tepat sebelum fajar dia pergi bersama Burnley Jalan di tepi Todmorden mencari beberapa sapi yang telah dilaporkan hilang. Mereka hanya ditemukan setelah matahari-up, misterius direlokasi dalam medan hujan-basah tanpa hoofmarks untuk menunjukkan bagian mereka.

Memberikan Facebook berburu malam hari nya, Godfrey hendak kembali ke dasar untuk menandatangani dari tugas ketika dia melihat sebuah massa besar beberapa ratus meter di depan. Pada awalnya, dia pikir itu bus datang ke arahnya yang mengambil pekerja untuk pekerjaan mereka di kota dan bahwa ia tahu lulus tentang 05:00

Tapi saat ia mendekat, ia menyadari bahwa itu adalah sesuatu yang sangat aneh. Itu adalah oval fuzzy yang berputar dengan kecepatan seperti dan mengambang sehingga rendah di atas jalan raya dinyatakan kosong itu menyebabkan semak belukar di sisi gemetar.

Polisi berhenti, bersandar ke kaca depan nya pad yang berada di mobil patroli untuk membuat sketsa dari setiap kecelakaan di jalan, dan menarik UFO. Lalu ada ledakan cahaya, dan hal berikutnya yang ia tahu bahwa ia mengemudikan mobil lagi, lanjut sepanjang Jalan Burnley, tanpa tanda UFO.

Godfrey berbalik dan memeriksa tempat UFO telah melayang. Jalan itu sangat basah itu hujan sangat sebelumnya di malam hari. Tapi hanya di satu lokasi adalah patch berbentuk lingkaran dimana jalan telah dikeringkan dalam pola diaduk. Hanya ketika kembali di kantor polisi dia menyadari bahwa itu adalah sedikit lebih dari yang dia harapkan – walaupun waktu yang hilang itu mungkin tidak lebih dari 15 menit dari perkiraan kemudian diambil di situs.

Prihatin untuk mengejek mungkin, Godfrey pada awalnya memilih untuk tidak membuat laporan resmi, tapi berubah pikiran kemudian hari ketika ia menemukan ia tidak sendirian. Setelah sarapan pagi itu, seorang sopir yang telah di Burnley tiga kilometer Jalan lebih jauh di Cliviger melaporkan melihat obyek putih cemerlang dan menghubungi polisi Todmorden.

Waktu cocok bahwa Alan Godfrey’s. Selain itu, patroli polisi dari sebuah kekuatan yang berdekatan (Halifax) telah terlibat dalam sebuah pengintaian untuk sepeda motor dicuri di dataran Lembah Calder dan telah menyaksikan cahaya biru-putih cemerlang turun ke lembah menuju Todmorden lama sebelum Godfrey mengalami pertemuan dekatnya . Cerita mereka, ketika mencapai kantor polisi Todmorden, membentuk pertandingan kedua.

Didorong oleh berita ini Godfrey mengajukan laporan resmi, namun terkejut ketika polisi memilih untuk melepaskan cerita ke koran lokal minggu berikutnya. Dari sini, pakar UFO menemukan kasus dan penyelidikan yang panjang dipasang oleh sekelompok UFO Manchester berbasis.

Alan Godfrey

Although Alan Godfrey had no further conscious recall of the missing time, he did have increasingly confused memory of the sequence of events surrounding the sighting (with an unexplained image of seeing himself outside the car during the sighting). There was also puzzling physical evidence.

His police-issue boots were split on the sole, as if he had been dragged along the floor and they had caught on something.

He also reported a previous history of seeing other strange things and having experienced at least one earlier time lapse as a youth—factors that UFOlogists have come to recognise as common with abduction cases.

When sure that all conscious testimony had been recorded, Godfrey agreed to be hypnotically regressed by a Manchester psychiatrist eight months after the incident. He eventually had several other sessions with different therapists, and his recall in later sessions was video-taped.

The doctor refused permission to the UFO group for the first session to be recorded.

The hypnotic testimony is very odd, and Godfrey was never to be sure what really happened. Under regression he told of the bright light stopping the car engine, causing his radio and police handset both to be filled with static and then to be swamped by blinding light as he lost consciousness.

His next recall was of being inside a strange room, more like a house than a spaceship, complete with a most unexpected large black dog. He was studied by a heavily bearded man who telepathically conveyed that his name was “Yosef” and whose clothing was very Biblical in nature.

Assisting Yosef were several small robot-like creatures “the size of a five-year-old lad” and with “a head shaped like a lamp”. They are reminiscent of the “Grays” of UFO lore; although with major differences.

Godfrey was supposedly asked questions, told that he “knew” Josef, and was promised a later encounter. But apparently he was not subjected to the more familiar indignities of abduction stories (especially from the US), such as bodily fluid samples and rectal probes.

Although there were periods of missing memory, the hypnotic recall that did emerge was a curious hybrid of mythic images, UFO case elements and dream like sequences.

When asked his opinion as to the reality status of this hypnotic testimony, Alan Godfrey was refreshingly honest. He told me he was certain that the UFO encounter was real, but he could not determine whether the story offered by hypnosis was a dream, a fantasy, reality, or a mixture of all three.

Unhappily, Alan Godfrey suffered terribly after this encounter. When I first wrote up the investigation (just before the regression hypnosis began) for Flying Saucer Review magazine in l981, I deliberately changed his identity to help protect him; although this was probably futile because the story had already been featured in the local press under Godfrey’s real name.

However, despite my refusal to assist them, a tabloid reporter traced the witness and devoted a front-page banner headline article to the story — read by millions over the Sunday lunch—which led to the officer being called to explain himself before his superiors.

He was forced to undergo medical investigation to determine his “status”, but was pronounced psychologically fit and healthy. Yet after some years feeling that he would never be allowed to forget his sighting, he took advice to honorably resign over an unrelated physical injury incurred during an incident in which he bravely intervened to avert a crime.

Todmorden, both before 1980 and in the years since, has been a hotbed of alien contact activity with several other major encounters having been investigated, including another abduction of a truck driver from Burnley Road only a little further out of Todmorden and on the same highway.
