The story is real but one of the names in this report is fictitious for obvious reasons. Corina, the driver of the vehicle is her real name. Her friend will be called Jane Doe. Here is her story...
She tells that her and her friend are having a very hard time dealing with what took place. Also another couple who lives in the area watched an aerial craft hovering close to the location where the two ladies had parked there car at the side of the highway and gave confirmation to the incident, or at least witnessed an object.
At approx: 12:05 a.m., July 31, 2003 the two ladies were playing around on the computer when Jane Doe said: We haven't done any star gazing in a long time.
So Corina said: You're right, lets go out and do some star gazing.
They left home at 12:05 a.m. heading out to an area where they would get a look at the clear night sky without having lights to obscure their view.
Corina drove to Glenmore, which is north of where she lives, and is on the back road heading to Winfield from Kelowna, B.C.
They were driving along and Corina reported that there was quite a bit of traffic for that time of the night, soon after they decided to stop just off to the side of the road to see what they might notice, the traffic stopped coming. There was not a light from any vehicles, not anything other than a very dark stretch of road.
Corina grabbed her flashlight and shone it into the sky as she has done in the past. Her friend Jane Doe had the binoculars on the other side of the car scanning the starry night sky. They were there only a minute out of the car when her Jane Doe said:
This is really strange. There are three stars up in the sky and formed into a triangle shape. All three lights at this time were solid white.
Both ladies watched as the three white lights started moving, but moving together.
Jane Doe, with the binoculars said: Stars don't do that.
Corina replies: Of course not, as she thought it may have been a plane or something.
Jane Doe replies: No this is not a plane as the lights were changing color to a neon green and the object had stopped and hovered just ahead of their car on the highway.
Corina turned the headlights off, and shone her flashlight down the road in front of her car. They were worrying about animals such as a bear, cougars, etc. being around in this isolated area. As she shone the light up the road both of the women spotted something which frightened them a lot. Five sets of eyes staring at them from about 40' away from them.
As frightened as they were, their first thoughts were of coyotes or some other wild animal, but she said once you really look your brain takes it in.
Corina describes the creatures as being roughly four feet tall, dark gray shoulders and coming towards the women.
Corina said: I was so scared I could hardly talk, and could hardly breathe.
She yelled to her friend Jane Doe: Get in the car, get in the car.
Corina said they both scrambled to get back into the vehicle, but she said it was like moving through quicksand and it felt horrible.
Being so terrified and trying to move as fast as they possibly could, it felt as if everything was slowing down around them.
Once they were both back in the car, Corina tried to turn the ignition on so she could get the power windows up. But all the electrics on the car was failing. The dome light, headlights were going off and on, on their own and as she said: Everything was going nuts!
Finally the car started and they turned around in the middle of the road and sped off towards home and as they traveled along they noticed a fair bit of traffic coming in their direction. Corina commented later in an interview:
Where was all the traffic when all this was happening?
As they drove along the road, Corina said to Jane Doe: This is the weirdest thing. I feel like electricity, my whole body is tingling, just like I was zapped by a charge from a battery.
When Jane Doe heard this, she said: I didn't want to say anything to you as you might think I was nuts, but I am feeling the same. As if I was hit by an electrical charge.
As Jane Doe was explaining how she felt, and facing Corina she glanced at the clock in car and said: Jesus Corina, look at the time!
Corina said what are you talking about?
Jane Doe said we were only stopped and out of the car for a few minutes at the most, and the time of the car's clock reads an extra 25 minutes of time.
As they drove along, and close to home, they both discussed it and wondered if they had imagined it all. As they were just about home, they turned onto Baker Street which is covered in darkness next to a field. All of a sudden they saw this bright, glowing neon green ball low in the sky. The object started moving to the right, stop, left, stop, right, stop, left, stop and then it started to move away until the ladies car came to a halt, and so did the object. Before they knew it, the ball of green light started heading towards them at a high rate of speed and hovered high above their car.
At this point they just wanted to get to their home and be as far away from whatever it was as possible.
Corina sped off quickly again and they headed into an orchard which was very close by. They thought they would not be seen hiding amongst the trees, plus there was no lighting in this area to reveal their position. Corina looked at her friend and said: Tthey will never find us here.
Both women are sitting in the car trying to get themselves together as Corina said she was losing it at this point.
Only after a very short time after arriving in the orchard Jane Doe said: Corina you better look out the front windscreen and look up slightly. We don't have just one green ball of light, there are now three, glowing green objects.
The way the green lights were in the sky, it looked as if the they formed a triangle formation and all moving now together. After a short period of time each of the green lights moved away in different directions.
In a interview, the 2 women were asked if they could give some idea of how large the green lights were. The witness told me each of the lights were about half the size of a full moon.
After seeing the lights flying off into different directions the ladies raced home as quickly as they possibly could.
Once safe at home, both ladies shaken, they tried to come up with some reasonable explanation for what just happened. They tried to put it out of their minds but that was impossible. Later on, both ladies turned in for the night and when they woke up in the morning, Corina discovered a large bruise on her left breast and another on the bottom of her foot. She did not know how they got there but she did know they were extremely painful.
As she sat drinking a cup of coffee, Jane Doe finally got up and was walking down the hall towards the kitchen when she said: God, good morning, do I feel rough this morning.
After Jane Doe finished saying that, Corina watched as blood came pouring from Jane Doe's nose.
Corina jumped up, ran and grabbed a towel. Jane Doe also commented that she was having a lot of pain in her lower back area. She asked Corina to have a look to see if there was anything that could be seen.
So she looked and gasped, there was a large circle burned into her skin and was located in the middle, lower back area, tail bone. Also bruises were found on Jane Doe's body as well, some of them appeared to look like finger marks and there were three of them on each thigh. Both women at this point were shocked, upset and very frightened.
Jane Doe, who was up visiting from the Abbotsford ended her holiday and headed back home. Two days after being home in Abbotsford, B.C. she went to consult her family doctor due to still experiencing the terrible pain which was originating from her lower back, plus it was not getting any better.
Her doctor examined her, and the injury to her back, the doctor said if I didn't know any better I would say you have a radiation burn. He was of course referring to the burn mark on Jane Doe's back. The doctor is still trying to heal this mark on her back, as something had burned right through the outer layer of this ladies skin.
Corina says: When I was around 12 years old, I woke up one morning with what people call a scoop mark. It's only on my left leg and I have no idea how it got there. It is a perfect circle which dips down a bit, and is about the size of a large pea.
About 11 months ago, my 18 year old son came to visit me for a few days from the lower mainland. A couple of days into the visit, he woke up in the morning and went to have his morning shower. As he was walking into the bathroom, wearing only shorts, I noticed to my horror that he had a perfect 4"x4"x4" triangular mark on his back, and inside this triangle were all these perfectly round red marks about the size of a pencil eraser. He said that he felt no pain, but that it was kind of itchy burning feeling.
We went to the walk in clinic to have a doctor look at it, but the doctor did not have any idea what this could be, or what may have caused it. She had never seen anything like it before. It disappeared about 4 days later. Another strange circumstance that goes along with this story is the fact that the same morning of this event, the tree outside the bedroom window where my son had slept, the leaves were yellow like they had been slightly burnt or something.
This is also the same son at 9 years old who woke up with a hole in his spine that was a bit smaller than a dime. It took us about 3 months of antibiotics to get rid of the infection. This hole was so deep, that you could actually see the bone. The doctor had no explanation for this injury. All my son remembers was being woken up by a loud, scary Beep Beep sound.
In a related story, this missing time event took place around the same date, as over 200 witnessed one amazing event unfold in southeastern British Columbia, a flood of sighting reports which also came from this area. July 27/28 to August 18, 2003.
This witness had no idea about the missing time event which involved Corina and her friend.
A lady who lives in Kelowna, British Columbia explained that a friend had cut out an article which ran in the Kelowna Capital Newspaper about a UFO Investigator Seeking Witnesses To A UFO Sighting.
The lady mentioned that she saw an unusual object in the night sky on July 31, 2003. She has a habit of glancing up into the sky as she has a beautiful view of the stars and it is very dark in her area. On this night the woman had already turned in, but couldn't sleep due to how warm it was in her home. The lady got up out of bed and went outside for some weird reason, and when outside the lady looked towards the south. As she sat out looking around, she spotted something, her thoughts were there shouldn't be any airplanes out here at this time of night, but there was something very strange.
She watched an object traveling from east to west and described the object as being almond in shape and a luminous green in color. She also mentioned only seeing one green light.
She stated that from her location, which was not at all far away from the two ladies who experienced the missing time, something very strange took place. She brought out her camera to take some pictures, but as she tried to take her photos, the camera would not work. It went dead. Also she stated that the evening was warm, and she could hear coyotes cutting up. But soon they became silent, and so did everything else around them including the crickets which were making some noise. She said it was if someone had clicked off a switch. The air went from a nice sweet smelling night to a musty cold in this dead silence.
She added that two nights previously, a person telephoned the radio station CKOV on an open line call in program and reported seeing a streak of light, and at the front of this streak a round ball was noted and the caller reported it had landed somewhere in South East Kelowna in the exact area where the green object had been witnessed, also where the two ladies had their missing time event.
Which makes this sighting is very, very important, due to the date of this sighting, the time it was witnessed, the color which was green and the shape, which is reported here to be almond in shape. This coincides to the location where the object was observed, which was where the two ladies watched the beings on the side of the highway and the green lights, then experienced the missing time.
For some Canadians, the debate over the existence of UFOs is more than a pop culture pastime. It’s up close and personal.
They are part of a worldwide collection of people who believe they’ve been abducted by an alien race.
QMI Agency's Thane Burnett spoke with Corina Saebels, a 54 year old mom who lives in Kelowna, B.C., and believes her family has been subjected to otherworldly experimentation. The interview:
Burnett: You have two children. What do they think about all this UFO talk?
Saebels: They have both suffered first hand experiences since early childhood, and still live with some of the after effects from contact with these beings. They know the reality of what is really going on!
Burnett: You call yourself an abductee. What does that mean?
Saebels: On a personal level, to be an abductee means that from early childhood, my children and I have been taken many times against our will, and had our bodies, minds and spirits raped.
Burnett: You live in Kelowna. People don’t often think about abductees in this country. Have you come across others?
Saebels: There are many abductees in Canada. The support group which I held in Kelowna alone, held over 10 people, from all walks of life.
Burnett: Can you boil down your experiences into highlights?
Saebels: Sure. For all of us, it began between four and five years of age, then once a teenager the visitations became more frequent, taking DNA material from us. It seems to be going from generation to generation. To this day we still have unwanted visitations.
Burnett: Any witnesses to what you’ve gone through?
Saebels: Yes, there are many eyewitnesses to what we went through, from friends witnessing a ship over our house and then us missing through the night, to eyewitness reports from strangers given to UFO researchers after an event.
Burnett: Any medical evidence?
Saebels: We do have some medical evidence of the after effects, such as photographs of burns on our bodies and marks on the ground after an event.
Burnett: Are these aliens good or bad?
Saebels: My personal belief is that there are many different species of aliens, and like us humans, there are benevolent ones and also malevolent ones. For us, unfortunately the Greys are the ones that have been dealing with us.
Burnett: Why are the Greys so nasty?
Saebels: The Greys have no emotions. So they are not affected by how much pain and trauma they deliver. They are like robots who simply come to do their job and then leave.
Burnett: When did you last have an alien encounter?
Saebels: My last encounter was this last summer. For some reason, these beings seem to have a pattern with when they come back. It is usually in late July and about every three years.
Burnett: Couldn’t there be a great many explanations for what you’ve gone through, beyond UFOs and aliens?
Saebels: Sure there are and always will be some other explanations for what people sometimes see and experience, but in some cases like ours, there are no other explanations and there is too much proof to think otherwise.
Burnett: You wrote a book, called The Collectors. How’s that selling?
Saebels: Actually, I never intended to write a book. But after my 2003 experience, I was so paralyzed with fear that I decided to make the fear work for me by turning my diary into a book, hoping to help others like ourselves know that they are not alone and to have courage in coming forward with their own stories. It was not intended to make me rich.
Burnett: On the site you use to sell the book, the theme from the X- Files plays. Is that an anthem among believers?
Saebels: No, not really. I simply used the X- Files theme because most people relate the song with paranormal subjects.
Burnett: Do you come across many people who just don’t believe you?
Saebels: To be quite honest, for many years we dealt with disbelief and ridicule, but in the last couple of years or so, we have found individuals becoming believers and being much more supportive. In fact I have been doing presentations in the U.S. and Canada on the subject.
Burnett: There’s been a lot of news stories lately on UFOs, including a group of U.S. airmen who came forward last month to talk about their UFO experiences. What’s your take on the stories?
Saebels: I think that it is absolutely wonderful that these people are coming forward with what they know. Their courage in sharing their information with the public will help us put the pieces together and finally understand what and who we are dealing with.
Burnett: What’s your message to people?
Saebels: My one message to people would be: Whether you are an abductee or some official with a story and a piece of the truth, have no fear in coming forward, for it is with knowledge that we will succeed in getting the truth.
Burnett: What’s your message to any aliens out there?
Saebels: To the benevolent ones I would say: If you know and see what these malevolent ones are doing to us, please, stop them from hurting our children, and help us!
