One of the very first known cases was Antonio Villas Boas, a Brazilian farmer, who reported being abducted in 1957. The second most compelling abduction case soon came to light a few years after the Boas’ case. During the 1960’s the term “alien abduction” really gain attention with the famous Betty and Barney Hill case in 1961. The Hills were returning home late at night when they encountered a UFO that was following their car. In both cases, the aliens took them, performed medical examinations, and then let them go.
