Witness report: PLEASE! people think I am crazy and when I confide my profession dismiss me immediately. I was on a yacht cruising south of Catalina Island returning to L.A. after a weekend ‘party’ cruise. It was late Sunday night. I remained on deck after everyone else had gone below
except the helmsman. We encountered a fast moving fog and I saw balls of lightning zoom overhead. the boat rocked violently and dozens of flying fish broke the surface. A HUGE, pewter colored disk rose from the water and hovered overhead silently. I felt vertigo, my stomach lurch and felt myself floating in a beam of intense light.
My next memory was of someone pulling me to my feet by my arms. It was bright daylight and a USCG boat was alongside hailing us not to move. There were already armed sailors onboard who roughly handcuffed me and tried not to stare ( my bikini was missing) and men in suits in charge giving orders. My famous companion came out; very groggy and their attitude changed. They claimed we matched a drug runner. they let us go. My companion was upset about publicity and we raced to LA overdue.He told me never to tell anyone we were out and dropped all contact with me. I think I am being watched. I have flash memories and weird things going on physically. I am scared, ashamed without knowing why and nobody will listen.
