young children experience a near abduction by a UFO in their own back yard in Olympia, Washington, May 2001.

Two children ages 6 and 9 witnessed in their back yard a huge flying object in the sky that flew toward them at a sharp angle and rested over them with a huge bright white light in the center beaming down on them. They both ran for cover under the eve overhang of the backyard cottage. They were screaming for their mother in the house, "mom, mom, help us, help us". The oldest felt that the "space ship" as she called it was trying to steal them. This is why she grabbed her younger sister and hid from the light. Both girls have drawn the pictures of what they saw. The saucer shaped UFO had many, many lights circling around the edge of the UFO that seemed to change shape and the middle had a huge center of bright blinding light the size of the cottage itself. After about 3 minutes, they both ran through the beam of light for about 5 feet and got to the back door where their mom was standing inside the door. When they began toward the house across those five feet, the "space ship" took off at high speed diagonally in the sky and disappeared. The UFO made a horendously loud sound as it hovered over them, both girls said. When their mom tried to go out to see, the girls struggled to keep her in afraid that the "space ship" would steal her away from them. She within a minute was out in the back yard and around the front yard looking for evidence of any airplane and it was dark and silent. The surrounding area did not have many trees and the sky was mostly visible. There was no trace. The girls continued to be clingy for the rest of the night. The mother remembers the lights of the house flickering and for some reason did not barely hear the sound nor react to the calls of the children as would be expected. She does not understand this at all. She is a very protective mother and watches her children closely. What is intruiging to the mother about this incident is that her children had not been exposed to any UFO pictures, books, TV, videos, CDs or even ideas. They did not watch television, n! or did t hey attend a public school. They were completely nieve and yet they drew a picture that resembled other UFOs that the mom has seen drawn and described an experience that was truly terrifying and real for them. She wonders why they felt like the "space ship" was trying to take them away.

Their father has encountered a UFO in another house three years earlier where the sound was so loud he was holding his ears and the light was blinding. The same mother, his wife and the two girls much younger were in the house and barely heard the sound and did not see the blinding light. They were all in the house but in separate rooms. She wonders what all this means. Why has her husband and children seen UFOs in her presence when she did not.
