LINCOLN, N.H. (AP) — Fifty years after Betty and Barney Hill reported seeing a cigar-shaped craft hovering over them in New Hampshire's White Mountains, the state has formally recognized their close encounter with a UFO.
Returning from a vacation in Canada on Sept. 19, 1961, the Hills arrived home in Portsmouth puzzled by stains and tears on Betty's dress, scuffs on Barney's shoes and shiny spots on their car. They said they had lost two hours of time. They made a report to the Air Force.
Under hypnosis in 1964, they recalled being abducted and examined by "men" who didn't appear to be human.
A state historical marker says the account is the nation's first widely-reported UFO abduction report. . . .
