Ferreira, Antonio Carlos
The Mirassol abduction case involves a series of 16 encounters Antonio Carlos Ferreira had between 1979 and 1989 in Mirassol, a municipality in the state of Sao Paolo, in Brazil.
The events started when Antonio Carlos Ferreira was abducted from his workplace - a furniture factory in Mirassol, São Paulo - on 28 July 1979, around 3 AM.
According to his own accounts, Ferreira was approached at his place of work, at 3am, by three humanoid figures who tranquilized him with a light-emitting gun before taking him aboard a smaller ship which ferried him to a larger craft further away. Once on board the ship, Ferreira states that he was positioned in front of a large television-like device and presented with a variety of images before being forced to mate with an alien woman, after which he was tranquilized again and returned to his place of work. (...)
He described their ship as being spherical with three undercarriage-like legs protruding from the bottom, and as having an interior that was lit by bright red and green lights that grew more intense as they approached the craft's ceiling.
Ferreira states that he encountered the aliens again in 1982, at which time their craft is said to have landed close by him so that the alien woman from the first encounter, and a childlike alien, could observe him from a distance. Ferreira is said to have experienced a third encounter later in 1982 in which he was taken into the hangar of an alien craft via a green beam of light before being injected with a yellow substance. He said he was then taken to meet the two aliens once more, the younger of whom he was led to believe was his child. Other encounters are said to have followed, to a total of 16 between 1979 and 1989.
Ferreira encountered two main types of extraterrestrials on board.
A first type consisted of humanoid beings that were about 1.20 meters tall (4 feet) and had abnormally large heads, which were about double the size of humans. They either had green or chocolate brown colored skin. Most had red curly hair, while some the lighter skinned ones had straight black hair. They all had large slanted eyes. "They had a large flat nose, a little turned up on the end, like a pug nose. Their mouth was wide and had more or less thick lips, pointed chin that jutted forward and a short strong neck. Of these the hair was of a light reddish color and was coiled in ringlets and was quite long. They had very large ears that stuck and were pointed, almost double the size of ours. The other race-type aboard had skin of a greenish leaf-color fine straight black hair, large nose also but smaller than the other, green slanted eyes, and a large mouth with finer lips and the same jutting pointed."
A second type consisted of beings that look like Nordic humans. "These beings had light skin with physiognomical traces identical to our own, hair long and blonde, eyes large and blue, and with a stature above 1.75 meters. They were dressed in a kind of white jump-suit without emblem which came up to and fitted closely around the neck, the cuffs and the waist. The collar as well as the cuffs and the extremity of the legs were of a blue color, however at the waist they wore a large belt of a green color."
Antonio Carlos Ferreira also observed androids on board.
"The green race-type aboard this spacecraft seems to be dominant. The same one has always been seated at this control table monitoring everything that is going on and giving orders to the others. He gives orders both telepathically and verbally and operates a number of control devices on the table. On this first contact Antonio saw four green ones including at least one woman, and six or seven maroon ones including at least two women. Besides that he saw four robot-like creatures that were "parked" in a row along the wall when they were not working."
There are some parallels with the Antonia Villa Boas case from 1957. He, too, was taken aboard a ship against his will and forced to have sex with a female extraterrestrial.
