Dear Mr. Davenport,
This is in regard to the report I read on your site (Occurred 2/10/01, posted
2/24/01) describing a sighting at "Morvain Falls, NC." I am guessing that
"Morvain Falls," as stated in the report, must be a typo since (according to
my maps) there is no such town in NC. There is, however a small town called
Moravian Falls, and it is approximately 25 miles north of Hickory, where I
I don't know if anyone with your organization has followed up on the report.
I tend to agree with your comment that if a UFO had crashed there, it is
likely that there would have been other reports at that time. However, since
I do live near the area and had occasion to drive out to the site in question
last Thursday (3/1/01), I made a point to look around to see if there was
anything unusual. (Granted, this was nearly 3 weeks after the sighting was
reported.) I did not see any signs of a crash at all. In fact, the
construction site mentioned in the report is about ten feet or less from a
well-travelled highway, so I believe it would be difficult for something like
that to go unnoticed in a town of that size.
