Argentina: Search For Alleged UFO Called Off
Team reached impact site but found nothing

Provincial police decided to abandon the search for the alleged
unidentified flying object that locals claimed collided last
Thursday against the slopes of the mountain ranges located to
the West of the Departments of Rosario de Lerma and Chicoana.
The ground search team, made up of 15 members of the Provincial
Police, National Gendarmerie and backwoodsmen reached the site
on Cerro El Manzano where the object supposedly crashed on
Saturday afternoon, at an elevation of 4,200 meters. They combed
the entire area and found nothing.

Yesterday, police suspected that what the locals had seen "was
the reflection of the sun over the ice in the area, and which
accumulated due to a fall of hail."

As far as noise perceived in the sector goes, one of the
researchers stated that "they were detonations of the devices
used by tobacco-growers to fight hailstorms."

Given the police verdict, the flight by the National
Gendarmerie's Pilatus PC-6 with the purpose of flying over the
area, scheduled for 7 a.m. yesterday, was suspended.

The situation began when Beatriz Prieto, a worker at the Las
Palmas ranch, informed police over the phone that an object had
crashed. "It looked like an airplane in flames," she said.
