Location: Kitsap County (rural), WA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 hours
Missing 3 hours of time after seeing lights behind car.

My boyfriend and I had been driving around the back dirt roads in Kitsap and Mason Counties. The area can be found on a map in what would be north west of Belfair on the north shore penninsula and about an equal distance south west of the Bangor/Silverdale area of Kitsap County in an area known as Tahuya.

My boyfriend pulled over and parked the car next to the road. I don't remember what day or month it was as it happened so long ago but I do know that it was summer because it was in the middle of the night and it was warm enough to have the windows down without wearing a jacket. In Washington I would say it was late July or August.

I don't know how long we sat there but I do remember asking my boyfriend what time it was. He told me and then I began to light a cigarette.

The next thing I remember was what appeared to be car headlights coming from an odd angle behind us, but I didn't hear any engine noise. I remember we both noticed the lights as my boyfriend was looking at his driver's side mirror at them. I wondered who else would be out here in the middle of nowhere at this hour. The lights came up behind us so smoothly almost as if they were floating.

Then the next thing I remember (which seemed to be only seconds passing)is no lights and I was looking at my boyfriend and I asked him again what time it was as if I were reliving the minute before.
He told me and it was 3 hours later.

We just looked at each other wondering how that could be. I think I said something to the effect of "I have been trying to light this cigarette for 3 hours? Didn't I just ask you what time it was?"

All I can tell you is that this moment in my life has never gone away.

The bottom line is that lights came up behind our car on a dirt road making no noise at all and with their dissapearence I lost 3 hours of time.

We were in our early twenties at the time and I never told anyone because I didn't think anyone would believe me. Now even after all these years I believe something happened to us that night that was not normal or of this earth.

When I did sleep next I had a vivid dream of being examined by aliens. I don't know if this dream was my minds way of trying to account for the missing time or if this is what happened to me during the three missing hours. I guess I'll never know.

I still remember the dream though as if it I had it yesterday. In case it could be related to my missing time I will explain it as best as I can, but like I said I don't know if it is related to the 3 missing hours and the strange lights behind the car. I was laying on a metal table but I wasn't cold or hard. There were several, 3 for sure, (beings? not human) around the table. One to the left of my head one behind me and one to my right side. I had the feeling they were males although I couldn't tell what sex they were.

They had greyish colored skin and bigger heads then we have with no hair. I remember the heads as being larger especially in the back area more so then ours. They were talking to me without a mouth I heard them in my head. They were telling me that I was fine and they seemed happy or I was getting a happy feeling from more then one of them. It was like being in a room with a group a happy chatty people.

I felt that my boyfriend was close but not in the same room as me. I also received the feeling that he was fine just as I was. The one to the left of my head asked me if I would have a baby for them. I said I would but that I couldn't have babies and I asked them if they could fix me so that I could and could have one for me too. I felt a sense of confusion from them and that's all I remember of my dream.

The one I really looked at was the one to my left. I don't remember them wearing clothes and they were what I would call scrawny except for their heads. I also don't remember them having ears. The mouth area was like a slash and they didn't have lips like we do and I don't remember seeing inside the slash of the mouth so I don't know how deep it was. The mouth was smaller then our opening for a mouth, about half as small. I couldn't tell where the light in the room was coming from but the room had a bluish cast to it.

My comment about not being able to have babies was most likely due to my earlier misscarriage that left scaring and I was told that I would probably not be able to get pregnant again. However 5 years later I did. So, was this dream related to my missing 3 hours? I don't know but unlike most dreams I still remember this one as if it happened yesterday and I still relate it to my missing time.

I am not a crazy person. I would be very embarrassed if anyone I know found out that I thought I may have been abducted by aliens. I have always thought of myself as a sceptic, but I can't or never have been able to explain the lights behind our car and the missing 3 hours, nor why this dream doesn't fade from my memory.

I would like to know if anyone else in my area saw anything similiar or unusual during the summer of 1987 in the late evening or early morning (before sunrise) during a very warm night in the Tahuya/Dawatto area of the Kitsap penninsula.

Please don't use my name publicly.
