Purported UFO abductee to attend conference in Tennessee

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A conference Saturday in Memphis will feature a man who claims to have been abducted by an unidentified flying object.

Travis Walton is scheduled to appear at "UFO Abductions Unveiled" at a daylong gathering at Southwest Tennessee Community College.

Walton claims to have been taken for five days from the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona in 1975. A news release about the conference describes his case as 1 of the most prominent in UFO lore.

The gathering is sponsored by the Tennessee chapter of the Mutual UFO Network.
