Antonio Villas Boas (1934-1992) claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrials in 1957.



At the time of his alleged abduction, Antonio Villas Boas was a 23-year-old Brazillian farmer. In the early hours of 16 October, 1957, he was ploughing fields near São Francisco de Sales when he saw what he described as a red "star" in the night sky. According to his story, this "star" approached his position, growing in size until it became recognisable as a roughly circular- or egg-shaped craft, with a red light at its front and a rotating cupola on top. The craft began decending to land in the field, extending three "legs" as it did so, which was when Boas decided to run from the scene.

Boas said that he first tried to leave the scene on his tractor, but when its lights and engine died after travelling only a short distance he decided to continue on foot. However, he was seized by a five-foot tall humanoid, who was wearing grey coveralls and a helmet. Its eyes were small and blue, and instead of speech it made noises like barks or yelps. Three similar beings then joined the first in subduing Boas, and they dragged him inside their craft.

Once inside the craft, Boas said that he was stripped of his clothes and covered from head-to-toe with a strange gel. He was then led into a large semicircular room, through a doorway that had strange red symbols written over it. (Boas claimed that he was able to memorize these symbols and later reproduced them for investigators.) In this room the beings took samples of Boas' blood from his chin. After this he was then taken to a third room and left alone for around half an hour. During this time, some kind of gas was pumped into the room, which made Boas become violently ill.

Shortly after this, Boas claimed that he was joined in the room by another humanoid. This one, however, was female, very attractive, and naked. She was the same height as the other beings he had encountered, with a small, pointed chin and large, blue catlike eyes. She also had long white hair. Despite the situation, Boas desired this female and the two had intercourse. During this act, Boas noted that the female did not kiss him but instead nipped him on the chin and, like the others he had encountered, made barking noises instead of speech.

When it was all over, the female smiled at Boas, rubbing her belly and gesturing upwards. Boas took this to mean that she was going to raise their child in space. The female seemed relieved that their 'task' was over, and Boas himself said that he felt angered by the situation, saying later that he felt as though he had been little more than "a good stallion" for the humanoids.

Boas said that he was then given back his clothing and taken on a tour of the ship by the humanoids. During this tour he said that he attempted to take a clock-like device as proof of his encounter, but was caught by the humanoids and prevented from doing so. He was then escorted off the ship and watched as it took off, glowing brightly. When Boas returned home, he discovered that four hours had passed.

Antonio Villas Boas later became a lawyer, married and had four children. He died in 1992, and stuck to the story of his alleged abduction for his entire life.


In the weeks following this alleged event, Boas suffered from nausea and weakness, as well as headaches and lesions on the skin which appeared with any kind of light bruising. Eventually, he contacted a well-known journalist by the name of Jose Martins, who had placed an ad in a newspaper looking for people who had had experiences with UFOs. Upon hearing Boas' story, Martins contacted Dr. Olavo Fontes, who examined the farmer and concluded that he had been exposed to a large dose of radiation from some source and was now suffering from mild radiation sickness.

Unusually for cases of alleged alien abduction, Boas was able to recall every detail of his experience without the need for hypnotic regression. Furthermore, Boas' experience occurred in 1957, which was still several years before the famous Hill Abduction which made the world aware of the possibility of alien abduction and opened the door to many other reports of similar experiences.

More unusual still is the events which occurred on the craft to Boas. While stories of humans and extraterrestrials breeding are becoming increasingly common, they are a relatively recent occurrence, only really starting to appear in the 1980s.

The great majority of UFO researchers have declared Boas' story to be genuine; however, no definite answer either way can be given, due to the lack of concrete evidence and the fact that the main body of evidence for this case is one man's story.
