Later, Rogers claimed he was convinced Walton was dead and was afraid the saucer was going to perpetuate the encounter by attacking the truck. After fleeing for a quarter of a mile and skidding off the road, Rogers stopped the truck. After consensus the crew decided to turn back and search for Walton, of which they did for about 30 minutes. To their surprise there was no trace of Travis Walton or the object they had just witnessed.
The Incident, Experience
“Walton’s experience stands out by virtue of its not being particularly bizarre as far as abduction accounts go” – Terry Matheson
The last memory that Travis had during the abduction was being blown back by the beam of light and experiencing a lot of pain. As he came to, still not fully conscious, Walton describes feeling as if he were in a hospital setting starring up at three human like figures blurred in shadow cast from the lights above.
Described as dressed in a brownish-orange clothing with underdeveloped facial features and completely void of hair, Walton struck two of the figures with the back of his arm sending them across the room. In fright, Walton preceded to grab a cylindrical glass tube to defend himself from the alien creatures. To his surprise, the figures fled the room leaving Travis alone for several minutes. In a complete utter shock Walton ran about 30-40 feet down a small corridor into a dimly lit empty room. Looking back from the direction Walton original came from, were clear and visible walls but transparent in the fact that he could see stars though them at the same time.
Amid the completely empty room was a chair with some-sort of controls and buttons located around it. After sitting in the chair and abruptly observing the controls an apparent human entered the room and escorted him across the ship/building. Described by Walton, the figure was, “friendly looking. He gestured and smiled, but there were no words.” The figure resembled the exact appearance of a human with hair and facial features, whom was wearing a clear helmet of some sort.
I heard somebody come in, and I turned around, and it was a man, just like people. I mean he wasn't like the other creatures, or whatever, at all. He looked just like you and I, except he had a helmet on, sort of a clear helmet.
I started babbling questions to him, and I ran over there, and he wouldn't answer me. He just took me by the arm and wanted me to go with him. And I thought maybe he can't hear me through the helmet. – Travis Walton
As described by Walton, he followed the figure across the ship and was lead into a small room with a chair in which he sat down. After taking his seat, three other human like figures entered the room and proceeded to place a mask over his face, similar to an oxygen mask. Shortly thereafter Walton fell into some type of induced sleep and when he came to, the entire ordeal was over… Or so he thought.
So we went out through the door, down to the right, and out to the left. There was a small room there. It had doors on it, and it was kind of like an air lock. It was just a small room with nothing in it, and then there was a door that went outside. And it was a ramp that went down, and it was cool outside. I could feel wind. There was a draft or something. It was a large room, that this thing was sitting on the floor in there, and it was shaped like the drawing that they made, like the thing we saw the first time, only bigger. And there were two other things in there—other UFO….. to look like flying saucers, kind of, except that they were rounded and oval-shaped, and they were really shiny, like chrome. It was a big room, like there was a lot more room in there. And there was a curved ceiling. It curved this way, and it had flat ends to the room. I came out of the door, out of that first ship, facing this way, and there was a doorway across in the far wall. He'd led me across there and through that doorway, down a hallway, to a room, and I'd had a burning in my chest, and it was starting....I felt better....I was trying to get this man to tell me what....you know, I asked him if he was from Earth and just anything I could think of, and he wouldn't answer.
I was led down the hallway. The man sat me in a chair, and in a room with three other people that were like himself. They were dressed in blue. And he went out....there was a door on the other side....he went on through, and I sat in the chair, and I tried to get the people to talk to me that were there, and they didn't have things on their head, and so I thought that maybe they could hear me, but they wouldn't answer either. There were two men and a woman in the room after the first man left. A man and a woman came from around the table, and they each took me by the arm and they led me over to the table, and got me up on the table, and finally I don't know why I should cooperate with them. They put a deal over my face. It was kind of like an oxygen mask thing. It was kind of clear plastic and it had a round, black thing on it about that big, just attached to it. I looked up at the ceiling which was just all solid light. There wasn't any light fixture or anything, but light in the room, just coming from the ceiling, and that was the last I remembered. I went to sleep. Until I woke up. I was lying on the pavement. It was very cold. I woke up very suddenly, and I looked up the roadway. I was lying outside. It was night. And I could see a light on the bottom of a flying saucer that looked just like the rounded ones that were inside there. And it was very shiny, but the only light came out of the bottom, and that went off, and it went straight up, just really fast, just without a sound. – Travis Walton
