Argentina: Researcher Report on the Salta UFO Search

A Report from Mercedes Casas (Salta, Argentina)

Yesterday I paid a visit to the sheriffs' offices of Chicoana,
Rosario de la Frontera and Campo Quijano to have a chat with
members of the police force. At Chincoana they were aware of the
fallen object, but almost next to nothing about the expedition
designed to find it. I was told that the expedition fell under
the jurisdiction of Rosario and Quijano. In Rosario I was told
that they had guided the members of the search team as close to
the site as they could, but the rest of the way had to be done
on horseback. They had indeed received word that it was a
metallic object because a sheen had been detected at the alleged
impact area during one of the overflights.

The sheriff wasn't in at the time, but the officer who assisted
me told me that was all they knew. They didn't tell me much in
Quijano, the last place I visited, which goes to show that the
news story wasn't as important for people living in the area.

The only thing that has given me pause - and ought to be taken
into consideration - is that one of the police officers, when
discussing the subject of the absence of missing airplane
reports, asked me to bear in mind that due to drug-trafficking
problems in [northern Argentina], it was possible that we could
be dealing with a small drug-running aircraft which of course
had not filed a flight plan.

In any event, I was advised of the approximate location of Cerro
El Manzano, located in Rio Toro ravine, bordering Campo Quijano.
It is a ravine surrounded by mountains, traversed by the famous
Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds - to those who don't know
it, it is a train that leaves the Salta station and heads west
to the Puna, reaching the Chilean border. A tourist attraction).

Photos of the area in question will be submitted later.
