Alan Godfry, a former PC with West Yorkshire Police,was on patrol in Todmorden in the early hours of November 28 1980, when he claims a large UFO
stalked him while he was out looking for missing cattle .
In his account Mr Godfry claims he stopped to sketch the "UFO" , which he described as a large fuzzy oval that rotated at such speed and hovered so
low over the road that it was causing the bushes by the side to shake." on his note pad, but was overcome by a burst of light.
His next recollection was that he was then driving his car again further up the same road but the strange unidentified object was nowhere to be
Mr Godfry returned to the area where he claims to have had the encounter to conduct a brief investigation . It had been raining so the ground was wet,
but he managed to find "a circular patch where the road had been dried in a swirled pattern. His police boots were split at the sole which he believes
is a possible sign that he had been dragged along.
Mr Godfry decided to report the incident only after a lorry driver reported seeing "a brilliant white" object at around the same time only three miles
from where Mr Godfry had his encounter.
Two Officers from neighboring Halifax police force also corroborated Mr Godfrys account after they filed reports of a "brilliant blue-white glow"
descending towards Todmorden, also at the same time.
Upon returning to the station PC Godfry realized that he could not account for around 45 minutes of time immediately after the encounter
So we have a case of some very unusual U.F.O activity witnessed by at least three serving police officers , one of whom had a close encounter with the
U.F.O which resulted with an account of missing time.
The event was was documented and recorded by two separate police forces .
When you add the physical trace evidence Godfry found at the scene of the encounter it adds up to one of the most fantastic U.F.O cases in British
I also think that its worth bearing in mind that PC Godfry was searching for livestock that had been reported missing as this calls to mind the cattle
mutilations investigated by Linda Moulton Howe .
But the strange tale dose not end there however.
PC Godfrey was later convinced to undergo hypnotic regression to attempt to recall what had transpired during the period of missing time which he had
reported after encountering the UFO.
During the regression, Godfry stated that the UFO had stopped his car engine, filled his radio with static, then blinded him with an intensely bright
light which caused him to lose consciousness. The next thing he recalls was being inside a room that looked very much like that of a regular house.
There was a large black dog in the room, and a heavily bearded men assisted by small, robot-like creatures with heads shaped like lamps. The bearded
man, dressed in "biblical" clothes, communicated with Godfrey telepathically, revealing that his name was "Yosef" and that Godfrey already "knew" him.
Yosef promised him a later encounter.
Personally I find evidence gather under hypnotic regression unconvincing to say the least the fact that the "bearded man in biblical clothes alongside
his robot assistants resembles a scene straight from star wars,which was released three years earlier.
But however doubtful I am of the reliability of evidence gathered under hypnosis I think its notable that PC Godfry reported encountering a large
Mysterious Black Dogs often seem to crop up in U.F.O and folklore tales.
I think that this intriguing case is often overlooked by ufologists despite there being a number of serving police officers witnessing the event as
well as physical evidence that was documented in Godfrys police report.
Another mysterious case that is not so over looked by researchers is that of Zigmund Adamski, a coal miner from Lofthouse colliery whose body was
found a top a large pile of coals after he was reported missing by his family on the 6 June 1980.
His body was shirtless and his face was clean shaven ,so in the time he was missing it appears he had been well treated.
The body had strange burns on his neck and chest which had been there for at lest two days before his death.A strange ointment had been applied to
these burns which could not be forensically identified .
Discussed here www.abovetopsecret.com...
Bet you cant guess who the police officer who discoverd Adamskis body was.
Your right, it was PC Godfry.
Six months prior to what i would say is one of best examples of U.F.O abduction in British ufology,PC Godfry found himself embroiled in another
strange case that some experts attribute to alien abduction.
So is PC Godfrys testimony false .
Is he in fact a fantasist who along with several other serving police officers made up the whole story.
Or mayhaps PC Godfry is not what he seems.
PC Godfry is a real life man in black, a Fox Mulder figure whom is called upon by the British Government whenever strange paranormal cases arise.
The truth probably lies somewhere between the two extremes,but i think its safe to say PC Alan Godfry is an interesting case worthy of more
