Following their harrowing experience, Hickson and Parker wasted no time in seeking help, making their way to the local sheriff's department to report their alleged alien abduction. However, their story was met with skepticism by sheriff's investigators, who initially suspected the men had been drinking or were simply lying. In a desperate bid to uncover the truth, investigators secretly recorded their interviews with the pair, hoping to catch them dropping the act. Yet, to their surprise, Hickson and Parker continued to recount their terrifying ordeal in vivid detail, describing what they had seen and the overwhelming fear they had experienced. In 1975, Jackson County Sheriff’s Capt. Glen Ryder told The Washington Post:

We did everything we knew to try to break their stories. If they were lying to me, they should be in Hollywood.

Hickson's third encounter with what he believes to be the same creatures occurred on Mother's Day 1974, while he was driving home from a family event with his wife and two children. He said:

It was almost midnight and I kept noticing a light back behind us. I nudged Sheila, who was sitting on the front seat beside me, and said, 'Look out that window and see if that light ain't following us.' She looked out the window and just froze. Blanche saw it and started screaming. 

What the family saw was allegedly a large saucer shaped ship floating 150 feet above them, just to the right of their car. Hickson's wife, Blanche, said:

It was a terrifying thing to see. It affected me bad. Tore me up. We stopped the car and Charles wanted to get out, but I wouldn't let him. We were all grabbing him and holding him. It hovered there a while, then just disappeared.
