National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Would like information about reported UFO crash in 1941 between Oran and Morley, Missouri.

I am trying to find any record of a UFO crash site in 1941, between Oran and Morley, Missouri, Scott County, southeastern Missouri. The two towns are four miles apart with a blacktop road connecting them. Sometimes this crash site is listed as being in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, (63701), 21 miles north of Oran/Morley.

When I was 12 years old I remember someone asking me, "Did you know a UFO was seen near Morley?" At that time I wasn't too familiar with what a UFO was. I am now 85 years old. Morley's population was 522 at the time.

There is a story connected with the sighting slanting the crash more toward the Cape Girardeau area. A Rev. Bob Huffman with the Red Star Baptist Church in Cape Girardeau was called to come to the site to pray over three dead alien bodies.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))

I have seen this Huffman story online and on television UFO documentaries.

I have heard the military became involved and removed evidence to another location.

Thank you for your time and attention.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the source of the report, and we found her to be quite sober-minded and eloquent. She stated that she had had a sighting in Missouri during the 1970's, and will submit it as a report. When it is posted, we will provide a link to it here. PD))
