Quote from the article:
“The United States destroyer Blue (USS Blue (DD-744)) search[ed] the Pacific Ocean off Southern California with radar today, trying to track down a mysterious ‘unidentified object.’
A Navy report said the Blue picked the ‘object’ up on its radar screen and was maintaining the contact.
The Blue, based in San Diego, had the object in its radar screen and was trying to close with it to identify it.
Announcement of the search was made at Washington after San Diego authorities forwarded a report to the Navy Department there.
The announcement made no mention of a submarine and gave no details of when or where contact with the object was made.”
