Argentina: The Wildest Excuse

A cab driver from the city of La Plata told his wife that he was abducted by a "Flying Saucer". His wife filed a report and the Justice Department and Police intervened

The excuse offered by a taxi driver from La Plata may soon go into the Guinness Book of Records as the wildest in the world.

It all started yesterday morning, when a desperate woman appeared at the 6th Sheriff's Office of the provincial capital to report that her husband had been abducted by aliens travelin aboard a UFO. This prompted the intervention of a judge, a district prosecutor and the Police.

After several searches and hours of anguish, the wife appeared before the authorities and claimed to have solved the case: "He phoned me from Quilmes and told me had been taken by a flying saucer."

In this way theft or kidnapping by "Earthlings" was discarded as a possibility.

According to the woman, this is not the first time that her husband has experienced these intergalactic abductions: the cabbie has vanished on several occasions and when he appears, he claims to have been abducted by flying saucers.

Strangest of all is that when he returns home from his space odysseys, his breath smells of wine. This eventually led the wife to suspect that the aliens have their base of operations in some wine cellar in the province of Mendoza.

ARGENTINA: The Incredible Story of the Taxi Driver Allegedly
Taken by a Flying Saucer

One or more space aliens traveling aboard a UFO were accused yesterday of being responsible for the disappearance of a La Plata cabbie. This was the statement made by the bewildered cab driver's spouse after the police spent nearly an entire day on a desperate search, fearing the driver might have been kidnapped by delinquents from this world and not another.

"He phoned me from Quilmes and told me had been taken by a flying saucer," said the relieved wife, putting an end to the search which had at that point already been made known to the Buenos Aires ministry of Security. The event, in which prosecutor Marcelo Romero and judge Marcela Ines Garamendia were involved, was kicked off by an urgent notice received at the 6th Sheriff's office of this locality, reporting the disappearance of the driver aboard a Duna-make taxi whose registration and medallion number are being kept confidential.

Immediately, police forces launched a search that included inquiries to various hospitals and prompted an urgent notice to the Buenos Aires Ministry of Security, which is involved in kidnapping cases.

Amid the considerable tension arising from the possibility that the cab driver could have been abducted by criminals, police officers from the 6th Sheriff's office, headed by Sheriff Oscar Desiderio, found the Duna taxi cab the man had been driving at 6:45 hrs. The vehicle was in Zone 1, between 519 and 520, with the driver's side door open. This heightened fears that the cabbie could have been the victim of a serious crime.

The desperate search for the alleged kidnap victim was halted around 15:45 hrs. yesterday when the vanished taxi driver's wife returned to the 6th Sheriff's office, announcing that moments earlier her husband had phoned her from the city of Quilmes where -- said the wife -- he driver had been taken by "extraterrestrials"

The woman stated that her husband assured her that the previous evening, while driving along Zone 1 between 519 and 520, he was "sucked up" by a blinding light and taken to a "flying saucer". The cabbie's wife did not offer any details of what befell her husband during his stay aboard the spacecraft nor the treatment he received from the space aliens. She said that this was not the first time that an episode of this nature had befallen her spouse, according to other stories he had already told her to justify other sudden "disappearances"

When questioned about this, the woman replied that -- according to her husband's stories -- the aliens would sometimes abduct him for "three or four days" and that "upon being released" the driver had "a strong smell of wine" about him.

According to police and court sources, after ending her statement, the wife asked that the record show that "she no longer believes her husband much" in view of the repeat abductions he claims to have suffered at the hands of extraterrestrials.

Argentina: Cabbie Didn't Return Home On Account of UFO Abduction

Taxi driver's wife told police her husband hadn't returned because "he had been taken by aliens"

A housewife desperate because her husband returned home late reported that he had been abducted by aliens who spirited him away aboard a UFO.

The stunning claim took place at the 6th Sheriff's Office of La Plata and involved a judge, the Prosecutor's Office and the Police.

The cab driver phoned his wife during early morning hours to inform her that he had been abducted by aliens who "sucked him" toward their UFO and was later released in the vicinity of Quilmes.

Up to now, police are only certain that the aliens are from the southern region.

Surprisingly, the wife appealed to the authorities, convinced of this event, although the fact is that the abducted man had spent a night of adventures with another woman.

However, this is not the first time that the man has been taken by E.T.s: the earthling had been chosen as a research specimen by Martians several times before.

The wife detected that the tests to which her husband is subjected involve administering special liquids that leave him with an odd breath very similar to the smell of wine. For this reason, "researchers" have not discarded the possibility that the ET base could be somewhere in the province of Mendoza.
