During a self-imposed break from research into the UFO phenomenon, I was on holiday in the United Kingdom and happened to take a walk through the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.   I came across an exhibit which immediately gained my attention.   The printed card inside the glass case read:


«Bandaged mummy of a man decorated with gilded terra cotta studs. Late Graeco-Roman period, Ca. 3rd Century A.D.»


Nothing much to get excited about? However, the card also stated:


«X-ray examination has revealed an unidentified piece of metal in the skull of this mummy.»


Now, there is probably a very simple explanation for this piece of metal, but it set my mind into active mode. What was the piece of metal? Who had put it there? What purpose did it serve? Then the inevitable happened, I began to think about all the stories from UFO abductees who relate that their alien abductors have placed «implants» in their bodies for some, as yet, unknown reason

During the rest of my holiday these questions came back to mind on occasions, and I continued to think about them after I had returned to Australia. Despite the pressures of other business, and my desire to take a break from the subject of UFOs, in what little spare time I had, I combed through my extensive UFO library, the Internet and other sources and brought together a small sampling of UFO abduction reports where «implants» have been mentioned. Surprisingly, despite all the hype and interest in the subject of «implants» I was unable to find anyone who had undertaken a literature review on the topic. Here then, is a preliminary catalogue of such accounts. I hope it will encourage others to add to it, expand it, and amend it.


In trying to date the actual event where the implant is reported to have been inserted/removed, I have run into difficulties in many instances. I have therefore chosen to provide the date of the source of the account; given that the date of implantation must, of course, be prior to this date. Where accounts have provided an event date this is given in the text.



The Catalogue:



1979 – Location?


Fowler reports on a case, not investigated by him:

«Witness:   And they released this little tiny thing, like a buckshot.

Investigator:   What did they release it from?

Witness:  From the needle.

Investigator:   What was the needle like?

Witness:   It was sort of like a long needle that was sticking in my side.

Investigator:   Was it a hollow needle, and then ejected through a hollow needle, or attached to the–

Witness:   I didn’t see the needle (i.e. when the tiny device was released). They had my arm up over my head, like that, so I couldn’t see what they were doing here. And then they said, «I hope your body doesn’t reject it. With this implant we’re putting in there is going to come better communications and power, and we hope your body doesn’t reject it. If this doesn’t reject it, we’ll activate it in, uh, three or four weeks.»

On 18 Jun 1977, Betty Andreasson, under regression, recalled a 1967 abduction event during which a long, flexible tube, with a needle at the end, was stuck up her left nostril. When this was removed it had «…a little ball with little prickly things on it» on the end of the needle. Betty was fairly certain it had not been on the needle when it was inserted.

1982 – USA


Abducted from their motor vehicle on 21 Aug 1980, Megan Elliott and daughter Renee found themselves examined in a circular, brightly lit room. A probe device moved around their bodies. «…was at one time seen to enter Renee’s nose with a pair of small ‘bee-bee’-like devices on the end and again seen to enter Renee’s naval with a ‘needle-like’ device. When Megan saw this happening she said «…don’t hurt my baby, she’s been sick,» and they replied «She’s not any more.» (Source 1)

According to source 2, there was a little ball at the end of the probe-the ball’s size was smaller than a BB. Question: «When the probe was extracted was the BB still there on the end of the probe?» Answer: «I didn’t see it come out.»

1982 – USA


During a 1980 regression session, Betty Andreasson recalled an event, when at age 13, in 1950, an entity removed her right eye from its socket. Then a flexible, «bright white light» needle connected to a long, silvery tube was pushed deep into the back of the eye socket. The needle, «…had one of those tiny little glass things on the end of it.» She felt «…a tiny jolt», the needle was withdrawn, re-angled and pushed elsewhere in her head. Again a jolt was felt»…as if something had been shot or released inside of me.» The needle light was removed and her eye replaced. There is no mention of whether or not the ball at the end of the needle was still present.

A woman, Prospera Munoz, recalled a July 1946 event. «A 42 year-old telephonist, reading a UFO book and starts to recall an abduction she suffered when she was 7 or 8 years old. She was abducted by two beings of her own stature and received a deep medical examination…She believe a metallic device was implanted in her brain.»

During a lengthy investigation into a complex of life-long abductions, a woman told of implants in her upper mouth. She visited a dentist for an x-ray. The dentist confirmed the x-ray showed two unusual objects-like straight pieces of metal-embedded in the upper gum, or bone, beneath her nostrils. He was unable to explain them. A full face x-ray undertaken shortly afterwards revealed nothing unusual. An independent, very experienced dentist and his radiographer concluded the implants were an artefact of the x-ray process.

In the middle of a range of experiences, after brushing her teeth in Sep 1991, an object was felt, protruding from her gum. Using her finger-nail she extracted an object which: «…looked like a flat piece of brass, square except for one small corner missing.» It was sent to John Carpenter for analysis. «Analysis of the object that emerged from my gum in September 1991, was completed in May, 1992. Photographs were taken using a scanning electron microscope. Am energy dispersive spectroscopy scan was also done. The data suggested that the material was approximately 80% copper and 20% zinc with small traces of aluminium and silica. The object weighed approximately 6 milligrams. It was roughly 0.16cm square and 0.03cm thick. It did not react to a magnetic field and showed no radioactivity. In essence the analysis showed that the material was consistent with common brass.»

A woman, on 8 Dec 92, is said to have been part of a «mass abduction» incident reported an implant behind an eye during that event.

The particle, mustard seed size, was given to Derrel Sims. Analysis of the 1-1.5mm long by 0.25-0.5mm high, by 0.25-0.5mm wide object indicated it was hollow. Primary constituents were carbon and oxygen. Silicon, barium & titanium were present followed by traces of beryllium, sulphur and aluminium. The material was electrically non-conductive and shown not to be biological. «The substance is most likely a high molecular weight organic compound. Polymers (plastics) are the most likely compound to fit the elemental profile.»

It was…reddish coloured but sort of transparent… If I looked closely I could see something inside the thing..’ The alien removed a second implant from Amy’s neck.

«I have myself studied a 1/2 to 1/4 inch thin, wiry object that was given to me by one of my clients, a twenty-four year old woman, after it came out of her nose following an abduction experience. Elemental analysis and electron microscope photographs revealed an interestingly twisted fibre consisting of carbon, silicon, oxygen, no nitrogen, and traces of other elements. A carbon isotopic analysis was not remarkable. A nuclear biologist colleague said the «specimen was not a naturally occurring biological object but could be a manufactured fibre of some sort.»

After a 1992 experience in Connecticut, «There’s a thing inside of me that they put in to see what’s going on and to track your memory…that somehow records everything in the mind…this notion was that there was a «little black chip» in his brain, perhaps from a previous abduction, and that the flexible instrument which looked metallic, long and thin, ‘retrieves the object’ (the chip…» (p303.)

«One of Dr John Mack’s PEER group members had an object expelled from her nose. The specimen was a «tough», pinkish-coloured, 1-inch long, kinky, wire-like object. A pathologist «Dr K» found it to be about 20-30 microns in thickness, and it could be stretched out more than 3 inches. It was reported to have a gelatinous sheath with bumpy outcroppings, it was clearly not a hair. A radiologist found it to be radiolucent-not metallic. Neither the pathologist nor the radiologist was able to identify the object. Further tests were done. Using the scanning electron microscope for energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) showed the specimen to consist primarily of carbon and oxygen, with carbon being the dominant element. This was the case for measurements made outside as well as inside the specimen. Measurements at several locations on the outside surface also showed the presence of small amounts of a complex mixture of those characteristics of tissue and contaminating substances (e.g. sulfur, chlorine, silicon, aluminium etc). Using a sharp scalpel the fibre was sliced into two . Its identity and purpose remain unknown at this time.»

«In 1989, an object was removed from the ear of the body of a close encounter witness…she had been aware of the object, but did not want it removed from her body while she was alive. Betty reported tones in her ear where the object was placed, and had numerous close encounter experiences….On January 6, 1995 Mrs Dagenais’ dark, 1 mm diameter implant was subjected to electromicroscopic analysis by engineer George Hathaway and found to be made of aluminium, titanium, silicon and traces of other minerals. He commented, «…titanium could be used in a transmitter or receiver, as could aluminium.» A quality control technician with Mitsubishi Electric of Canada was also questioned about what a device consisting primarily of those elements might be used for. He replied that it «…would be a transducer and can be used to transmit signals.»
