The MUFON report was filed by the witnesses’ wife for the events that began about 10 p.m. on June 28, 2015, when her husband and grandson left a bowling alley in Erwin.

“They noticed a triangle-shaped object with lights in the sky,” the woman reported. “When my husband sped up on the road, the object either went just as fast or passed him and waited. When he slowed down, the object slowed down. My husband did this on purpose to see if the object was conscious of his movements.”

The witness traveled south through Lillington, and then southwest on Route 27 from Lillington toward Sanford/Broadway, NC, when the object started following him again. (Credit: Google Maps)

“When he stopped at a McDonald’s in Lillington, NC, the object stopped. When he came out of McDonald’s the object was hovering over the car dealership across the street (which is well lit). As he progressed south through Lillington, and then southwest on Route 27 from Lillington toward Sanford/Broadway, NC, the object started following him again.”

The object disappeared from view about half way down Route 27 between Lillington and their home. (Credit: Google Maps)

“Our grandson has a photo and a video but we do not know how to upload it from my grandson’s device. We live about 20-25 minutes from Ft. Bragg/Pope Air Force Base and about one-half hour from Simmons Army Air Force Base. We see planes and helicopters all the time. This was not a plane nor a helicopter.”
