Bizarre UFO/ Alien Sighting Reported - Erie Daily Times 1966

Strange UFO/Alien Beach Landing

I found this extremely odd article from the 1966 edition of the Erie Daily Times. This UFO/Alien encounter happened July 31, 1966. The police were summoned and took a report and the little girl involved was described as being "hysterical".

Artist Likeness
UFO SIGHTED ON PRESQUE ISLE: A 16-year-old girl from Jamestown, N.Y., was hysterical after an unearthly encounter in the sands of Beach 6 at Presque Isle State Park on July 31, 1966. As Betty Jean Klem, Anita Haifley and Haifley's children sat in their car on the beach, they noticed a "metallic, sort of silvery" light that appeared to settle on the beach 300 yards from the car, the Erie Daily Times reported Aug. 1. 

"We saw a star move. It got brighter. It would move fast, then dim. It came straight down. The car vibrated," Klem said. Klem then saw a featureless, gorilla-shaped creature, about 6 feet tall, approach the car. The creature retreated into the brush when Klem sounded the horn. Hearing the horn, police rushed to the car and found the girl "in a state of hysteria." Scratches were found on the beachgoers' car, scratches they insisted weren't there before their park visit. During an investigation, officers found several diamond-shaped impressions, 18 inches wide and 6 to 8 inches deep, in a triangular pattern in the sand.

This story did not make the front page of the paper but it did make the paper on August 1, 1966
