NUFORC Sighting 119367

Occurred: 1941-07-11 00:00 Local - Approximate
Reported: 2015-06-06 14:20 Pacific

Location: Oran (south of Cape Girardeau), MO, USA


Would like information about reported UFO crash in 1941 between Oran and Morley, Missouri.

I am trying to find any record of a UFO crash site in 1941, between Oran and Morley, Missouri, Scott County, southeastern Missouri. The two towns are four miles apart with a blacktop road connecting them. Sometimes this crash site is listed as being in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, (63701), 21 miles north of Oran/Morley.

When I was 12 years old I remember someone asking me, "Did you know a UFO was seen near Morley?" At that time I wasn't too familiar with what a UFO was. I am now 85 years old. Morley's population was 522 at the time.

There is a story connected with the sighting slanting the crash more toward the Cape Girardeau area. A Rev. Bob Huffman with the Red Star Baptist Church in Cape Girardeau was called to come to the site to pray over three dead alien bodies.

I have seen this Huffman story online and on television UFO documentaries.

I have heard the military became involved and removed evidence to another location.

Thank you for your time and attention.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
