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

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