Yes the reason theres no proof, is because theres none.
Id love for aliens to be scouting us or whatever but, they probably arnt.
aliens is comparable to religion due to the lack of fact and evidence. Though arguably statistically, aliens are more likely..... *thats going to be a hot topic*

There is no proof using the OP's closely parametered, arbitrary, anthropomorphically biased definition of "Aliens".
(Frustrated because there are no videos of Xenomorphs/Sandpeople/Klingons?)
Fungi has been shown to be able to survive space, there is little evidence of it in the fossil record up to a certain point and it could (arguably) be demonstrated that the consumption of fungi and it's psychoactive chemistry brought about an intelligence boom in humans that separates us from the rest of Mammalia.
What if Fungi is alien....what if "Aliens" have already realised that the speed of light is a natural constant that cant be broken and instead just send out the most basic of messages in biological form that is only to be understood at a certain level of biological evolution?
It could be that aliens are technology based (not biological) and they are already here amongst us ( check your toaster- scratch that; stop using Bitcoin as they probably have more powerful mining rigs than us and they are undermining conventional currency)
It could be that Aliens having mastered "useful" interstellar travel technology, and see perfectly mimicking the biological facets of the populations from inhabitable planet as just an afternoon's work when they arrive?
One thing can be pretty much assured: If Aliens exist and are travelling/living here and dont want you to know...you wont.

It is a simple answer when it comes to skeptics/debunkers/non-believers because we want physical evidence. Many decades and many thousands of reports and there has never been an ounce of anything of value, ever? Extremely odd.
Tsum Um Nui
For twenty years the Dropa stones were said to have sat in storage before they were given to Tsum Um Nui (楚聞明) for study in 1958. It is said that he came to the conclusion that the grooves on the discs were actually very tiny hieroglyphs, none of which were of a pattern that had been seen before, and which can only be seen with the use of a magnifying glass. By 1962, he had allegedly deciphered them into a story that told of a spacecraft that crash landed in the area of the cave, the Bayan Har Shan region and that the ship contained the Dropa people who could not fix it and therefore had to adapt to Earth. Further, his research claims that the Dropa people were hunted down and killed by the local Ham tribesmen for a period. Tsum Um Nui noted specifically that one glyph apparently said "The Dropa came down from the clouds in their aircraft. Our men, women and children hid in the caves ten times before sunrise. When at last we understood the sign language of the Dropas, we realized that the newcomers had peaceful intentions".
Tsum Um Nui is said to have published his findings 1962 in a professional journal, and was subsequently ridiculed and met with disbelief. Shortly afterwards he is said to have gone to Japan in a self-imposed exile where he died not long after he completed the manuscript of his work.
Russian researchers requested the discs for studying, and allegedly several were shipped to Moscow. Once there, it is said that they were scraped for loose particles and put through a chemical analysis which revealed that they contained large amounts of cobalt and other metallic substances. As recorded in the Soviet magazine Sputnik, Dr. Vyatcheslav Saizev describes an experiment where the discs were supposedly placed on a special turntable whereby they were shown to 'vibrate' or 'hum' in an unusual rhythm as though an electric charge is passing through them.
