Stanford UFO Sighting Abduction Jan 1976

THE STANFORD UFO SIGHTING ABDUCTION: THE STANFORD DRIVE-IN ON HWY 78 - Stanford, Kentucky - On the evening of January 6, 1976 - Mona Stafford, Louise Smith, and Elaine Thomas were traveling west on Highway 78 towards Hustonville, to their home town of Liberty, Kentucky. Just past the Stanford Drive-In Theater, the three women encountered a large UFO - with red and yellow lights - which took control of their vehicle (with a bright "beam") and pulled it off the road and into a rural farm pasture. Missing time, physical effects, and a subsequent hypnotic regression revealed a horrific shared abduction experience during the missing hour along Highway 78. The Stanford Drive-In continues to operate to this day. Photo by Michael Huntington - June, 2016. credit Michael Huntington

Hi, my name is Abby Howard, and one of the women was abducted in 1976, is my great-aunt, that I never had a chance to meet.
I love to get in with this sci-fi ordeal, and my grandmother told me not to long ago, this story. I have done all the research I can, and cant seem to find out what I want to know. I know Mona Stafford is still living, and would love to have an opportunity to interview/ meet her. If this is unavailable to do so, I would love some feedback on your job, and how it works. Thank you so much for your time.
