Subject: Cali/Colombia 1976

Dear Friends,

This is a request for help to get more information about a
strange event that happend in Cali /Colombia in 1976.

"We go onboard a UFO" said Conchita Alvarez de Hoyos. She left
her family and hometown together with four other individuals and
never came back.

The story was published in the newspaper EL PAIS on June 17,
1976. It was written that on Tuesday before this date the five
members of the center for extraterrestrial studies (CIREX) left
the town of Cali at five o'clock a.m. and headed towards the
Chisto-Ray mountain. They expected to meet a UFO there to start
for a "special mission".

"We do not know when we'll come back. Wish us luck", she said to
her parents minutes before Mrs. de Hoyos left them.

Mrs. de Hoyos was an excellent Parapschologist and
worked/studied at the University of Cali (this would need
further confirmation, jk).

Her father, Mr. Rogelio Alvarez, reported that his daughter
fell in trance from time to time since 8 years and has
received  several messages from extraterrestrials. It had
to do with Jupiters moon Ganymede.

It was said that several extraterrestrials already had or will
contact Conchita. In this context, there is a strange remark
that a yugoslavian photographer, Mr. Henry Janschitz
photographed a young Lady in Bogota and then collapsed. This
Lady should have been an extraterrestrial, too.

It was reported that on the day of the disappearance of Mrs. de
Hoyos and the the other four a light was seen travelling away
very fast from the mountain. On the top of the mountain the
abandoned car of Mrs. de Hoyos was found.

Mrs. de Hoyos never reappeared neither did her accompanists. The
was no sign of suicide, no traces, no dead bodies were ever

I know that this story sounds a bit weird but we have several
points we can check, investigate and verify.

This contribution  is meant as a challenge for the South
American members of the list to help us to clear up what
happened in June 1976 in Cali. Maybe we have a real abduction
case here that never was thoroughly investigated. I have
photocopies of the articles from the newspaper EL PAIS from that
day and they are big ones, so there was obviously public
interest and a lot of rumour surrounding the incident.

Is there anyone who is interested and can provide further


Joachim Koch, Berlin
