South Mississippi has History of UFO Sightings

Bookmark and Share


      Almost 40 years after two men said they were abducted by a UFO over the Pascagoula River, Coast residents still occasionally spot strange objects in the sky.

On Oct. 11, 1973, Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker, co-workers at a shipyard, said they were fishing on the Pascagoula River when a spacecraft came near them and four creatures took them aboard.

Biloxi police Sgt. Jackie Rhodes said he has received a few calls about UFO sightings since he has been with the department, but dispatchers have a process to follow if they get these calls.

"Every now and then we'll get a call about something suspicious in the sky," he said. "We respond any time someone calls for service."

Rhodes said the department treats the call as a suspicious circumstance and will dispatch officers to the area, talk to the person who called and file a report, if necessary.

Pascagoula police Sgt. Doug Adams said his department follows the same procedure and although it hasn't recently gotten any calls about UFO sightings, officials have investigated calls about suspicious loud sounds.

Adams said officers are sent to the area and contact local industries and military bases, but most of the time they are unable to determine the cause. . . .
