An abduction is the art of kidnapping and examination of human life thought to be used by aliens.
- Main article: Travis Walton Abduction
Among one of the most famous abductions was the abduction of Travis Walton who claims that he and his friends were driving home in a truck one night and saw a bright light coming from the forest. Walton and his friend stopped their truck and Travis got out of the vehicle to investigate the strange light. Travis then noticed the the light in a matter of fact a UFO, although it is unknown if Travis noticed this at first. A large beam of light shot from the vehicle and on to him which caused him to pass out. Walton's friends watched in horror, as they were worried that the beam of light might have killed him. Travis' friends soon drove away and left him.
Walton claims that he awoke from the light and thought that he was in a hospital, until he noticed that the beings standing above him were not human and he was in no hospital. Walton the noticed that the "creatures" could be (and were most likely) grey aliens. The creatures began to examine Walton shortly before putting a mask over his head.
Travis Walton later woke up in the forest where he had been abducted, except he was wearing his clothes on backwards, this was obviously a sign that his clothing had been removed during his encounter with the creatures. Walton thought that he had been missing for only five hours, when in reality, he was missing for five days. Walton later reported his abduction and had his boss draw an illustration of what the creatures that abducted him looked like. His drawing showed a seemingly average depiction of a grey alien wearing a jumpsuit-like uniform.
- Main article: Probe
During the process of an abduction, aliens are thought to use tools known as probes which are thought to be very graphic when being used to examine a human specimen. This may even resemble a form of sexual assault or even rape. In the case of the Betty and Barney Hill abduction, Betty Hill claims that the alien "leader" put a probe in her nose shortly before her and her husband, Barney Hill, were taken on board the aliens' ship.
Probes can resemble the form of needles, scalpels, and other forms of medical work used by human doctors. Aliens are known to use probes for purposes such as, examining eyes, noses, mouths, and most organic parts of the human body. Some say that why humans are on board an alien ship, probes might be used as part of the purpose of causing humans to spawn alien-human hybrids.
