One case especially noted [from Project Grudge/Blue Book Report 13] and remembered very vividly [by Bill English] was entitled “Darlington Farm case” out of Ohio. Case apparently took place in October 1953. Man, wife and thirteen-year-old son were sitting down at dinner table. As they sat there the lights in the farm house began to dim. Dogs and animals raised ruckus on outside. Thirteen-year-old boy got up from dinner table to see what was going on. Called his mother and father to come look at the funny light in the sky. Father and mother went out onto the porch. When they got out on the porch one of the dogs broke loose from leash beside house and came running around front. Boy began chasing it into the open field as mother and father watched the light come down from the sky. They described it as a round ball of fire, and it began to hover over the field where the boy and dog had run to. As they stood and watched, the mother and father heard the boy start screaming for help, whereupon the father grabbed his shotgun which was right next to the door and began to run out into the field with the mother following. When the father got to the field he saw his son being carried away by what looked like little men, into this huge fiery-looking object. As it took off the father fired several rounds at the object, to no avail. They found the dog – its head had been crushed – but no sign of the boy or any other footprints of the little men who apparently carried him off. Father immediately called the Darlington police and they immediately came out to investigate. The official report read that the boy had run off and was lost in the forest which bordered the farm. Within 48 hours the Air Force made the determination that the family was to be relocated and the mother and father were picked up by Air Force Intelligence and all personal belonging and possessions were loaded into US Air Force trucks and moved to a northwestern relocation site.
The mother was in shock and had to go through a great deal of psychotherapy and deprogramming, as did father. One interesting aspect about this case was classification under Air Force Report which read it was a genuine CE3 and that for the good of national security the mother and father had been relocated to relocation zones Z21-14. Not sure whether this indicated map grid coordinates or latitude-longitude. According to the report there were at least four relocation sites across the United States. Depending upon which type of encounter these people had, the report indicated that there were extensive medical facilities available at the relocation sites to deal with all medical emergencies up to and including radiation poisoning. The report mentioned a site located in the Utah-Nevada area, but no indication of its purpose or what it was for.
