This contact-book is about the
experiences of an out-moved Cuban - Filiberto Cardenas who in jan79
lived in Florida, where he had had a gift shop; "Zarabanda",
at 4150 East 4th Avenue, Hialeah. He sold that and bought out a
small filling station and automobile service shop called Barbara
Service Center, Inc., at 4105 East 4th Avenue, which was then no big
money maker. He developed the service station business into a highly
successful operation, but it took all of his time, and most of his
wife's, all days of the week and Saturdays and Sundays. He needed
more time to conduct his own investigation into what was happening
to him and to tell others who would listen to what was going on. He
sold the business on his birthday, the 31st of October, and began to
make plans to visit UFO conferences and investigators around the
country to see how much was happening to others. That is the day
DrVigilo Sanshez-Ocejo tells he met him for the first time.
Filiberto's experiences actually began on 3
January 1979, and investigation of the case was most ably undertaken
by Dr. Virgiho Sanchez-Ocejo, Jr., an Attorney and local UFO
investigator and researcher who was working diligently on a number
of substantial UFO cases already. Sanchez entered the case on 4
January, the day after the first abduction, while Cardenas was still
in the clinic, and began the long and highly detailed debriefing. He
developed details and tested the data. He arranged for medical and
psychological, and even neurological examinations of the witness and
provided a hypnotherapist and expert on the subject to conduct
regressions of the witness back to the actual contacts to develop
details. The witness was found to be perfectly normal in every
respect, except for the body marks, skin abrasions, and systemic
disfunctions resulting directly from the UFO contact. Sanchez was
assisted by Mr. D'Agustino, an electronic Engineer, for many years a
UFO investigator and MUFON representative in his country Uruguay,
South America. Mr. D'Agustino is now living in Miami.
The UFO make their car to misfire and stop
On the 3rd of January 79, at about six PM, a
Thursday evening, Filiberto Cardenas, then 46 years old, was
snatched by a buzzing object that emitted a beam of
violet-bluish-white light which caused him to float up the beam and
out of sight of his three friends with him. He seemed to go into a
darkish bag-shaped (later described as roughly football-shaped)
object which then flew away to the west with Cardenas aboard.
Filiberto and three members of the Marti family,
Fernando 46, his wife Elizabeth 36, and daughter Mirta 13, of 8632
NW 35th Court, were just before this happening returning from an
unsuccessful effort to buy a suckling pig for a Sunday-night supper.
The farmer they had gone to see had no more pigs for sale and they
were returning to U.S. Highway Route 27, also known as Okeechobee
Road, to go back home. Cardenas' 1970 Chevrolet Station Wagon
developed electrical problems. The headlights and all other lights
went out and the engine stalled, and the car came to a stop near
Florida's Turnpike Extension. When Fernando tried the starter there
was no electrical current al all. Fernando, who was driving at the
time, and Filiberto got out and opened the engine hood and looked in
at the engine to see what was wrong, Cardenas said.
"At that moment the engine began to reflect
different colors, red, violet, blue, orange and then a bluish white."
They heard an intense buzzing noise, "like many thousands of
bees," Cardenas said. "I tried to move but I was paralized
in position, unable to do anything-even unable to move my arms. I
could hear the screams of the women in the car. I looked down and
saw that I was suspended in the air and rising. When I was 8 to
10 feet above the car everything went dark, and I don't remember
"The next thing I remember is waking up to
consciousness on my hands and knees, and two bright lights rushing
at me. I heard brakes screeching and tires skid, and the lights
swerved and came to a stop. I was helped from the road by a man
taking my collar and leading me off the road. I learned later that
this was near 137th Avenue on the Tamiami Trail, some 16 miles from
where my car stalled."

A motorist called Police and Patrolman William
Christian of the Fifth Precinct Station came and picked Cardenas up.
This was about 8:15 PM, two hours after he had been elevated up the
beam of light before the eyes of his friends. The police officer
later said that Cardenas told him he had no idea what had happened.
When I (Stevens)
interviewed Cardenas, he told me that he did not dare tell the
policeman what he knew for fear of being considered crazy.
Meanwhile, Fernando Marti, who was also looking
under the hood with Cardenas, saw the engine reflecting the various
light colors and then saw Cardenas' feet ascending above the hood,
to his left. He also felt weightless and jumped further into the
engine area, on top of the hot engine, and grabbed hold-which
probably saved him from Cardenas' fate. When the light dimmed and he
felt weight again he looked out and saw Cardenas rising and shouting,
"Let me go, let me go!" He watched Cardenas float up the
beam of light until he entered the dark bag-shaped form that then
Fernando ran around the car to comfort the
screaming, trembling women and told them, "They took
Filiberto-they took Filiberto!" Fernando's wife Elizabeth had
been in an earthquake
in California, and fearing the same thing when
the car started shaking had grabbed Mirta and pulled her across her
lap, putting her arms around her for protection.
Fernando jumped into the car and tried the
ignition again and this time there was spark and the engine turned
over and started, but ran very roughly-like it was not getting
enough gas or something. The car chugged forward slowly and then
began to improve a little, finally running all right again.
Fernando stopped at the nearest facility and
called the police to report the problem, but they told him to go to
a pay phone and callback. He got back into the car, which started OK
this time, and they drove to Hialeah to a pay phone. He called the
police again and reported what had happened and Cardenas'
disappearance. Then he called Cardenas' wife, Iris, and told her
that an object with a large light had taken Filiberto. She wanted
more details and he tried unsuccessfully to explain something he
himself didn't understand. Mrs. Cardenas began to cry.
When Fernando hung up the phone, Iris got a
nephew to drive her to where Filiberto had disappeared, and after
checking with the police and finding that they knew nothing more
than Marti's call, she and the nephew set out to see what they could
find out. They didn't find anything at the scene.
When Cardenas was found about 8 PM, the police
notified Mrs. Cardenas and she rushed to the station and took him to
a local clinic for treatment.
"I would find it hard to believe if I read
about it in a newspaper," admitted Marti, "but I was there
with my wife and daughter. We were all terrified by the light and
the noise," he said. "When it ended Filiberto had vanished."
"Before this happened," Cardenas said,
"I scoffed at UFOs. Now I know differently."
Someone said that a checkup should be made for
radiation if this was in fact UFO related. The local clinic was
unable to treat or examine for such effects and Cardenas was taken
to Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital about 01:30 in the morning of
the 4th to see what they could do. His medical records show that he
complained of pains in both knees and out-of-focus vision in the
last hour. Following X-rays and a general examination, the hospital
noted, "Stable vital signs," a 0.2x0.2 centimeter abrasion
on his forehead and a 2x2 centimeter yellow lesion on his right
shoulder. He was also checked for radioactive contamination at the
hospital by an Air Force team sent up from Homestead Air Force Base,
south of Miami, The tests were negative and he was released and sent
Cardenas developed various odd symptoms, i.e.
excessive thirst, profuse sweating, sulphurous body odor, short
memory, hot and cold flashes, and sexual dysfunction. His urine was
a very dark yellow-brown and had a bad odor.
Homestead reported no unusual air activity
observed by RADAR during the time of this abduction.
Dr. Jose Yedra, a local hypnotherapist who had no
personal position on UFOs, pro or con, regressed Filiberto into the
experience 4 times to develop details and help restore the lost
memory. This had to be done in Spanish as Cardenas is not fluent in
the English language.
The "ufo-people" onboard
Cardenas spoke of being taken by 3 human-like
alien entities dressed in tightly fitted bluish-white one-piece
suits. He was taken to a beach someplace
totally unfamiliar to him where he saw deep blue water, a narrow
sand beach and reddish-brown to reddish-purple rocks rising steeply
away from the beach sand. While the spacecraft hovered at ground
level the aliens worked some kind of a lock on a rock. One of the
aliens got out of the small craft they were in and pointed a "flashlight"
kind of instrument at a large rock abutement. The rock parted and
revealed a tunnel or a large cavern. More of the same or similar
craft came out and they all took off and flew out over the ocean
waves. Suddenly they all tilted down and descended into the water
and went underneath the surface. He remembered being seated near the
"glass" of the windshield, or port and seeing the sea
water rush by at great velocity but it didn't seem to be touching
One of the entities, Kiostros, spoke to Cardenas
in good Spanish with a kind of Portugese or Italian accent, which
the Cuban did not understand easily. Kiostros talked about
the higher energy of the sexual organs, the need for a different
religion, the sinking of California into the Pacific, the future
disability of an actress who will become the First Lady of the White
House, and the disastrous end of President Sadat's rule in Egypt
before the end of 1981! (remember this
happened in jan79-R.Ø.rem) More predictions
included the death of another very famous actress, a cure for
cancer, the Peoples Republic of China fighting Russia for control of
Asia, an Arabic war in the middle east, eventually involving Saudi
Arabia and Israel as well. But most important of all was that 6
people from Earth were coming back in a UFO craft in public to
deliver a message. This was supposed to occur after 3 months, April
3rd, and so far as is known it may have happened. (we
now know - after so many mil.off-jumbers have come forth and "leaked"
- which kind of totally control of western media-news the BIG MONEY
PEOPLE have had on this theme, before the internet was activated,
and the gov.and military's lasteing BIG lies have been revealed.
(NOTE: we have a case in Brazil that happened
exactly three months after Mr. Cardenas adbuction. Also when
Cardenas said in his hypnotic regression, "after 3 months",
we came up with
April 3 date.)
Cardenas returned to the abduction site several
times, and each time he arrived there his expensive gold electronic
watch would run very rapidly and gain time. He could audibly hear it
whirr inside. For some time after returning, each time he touched it
with his right index finger it would speed up and whirr again, and
he demonstrated this for his wife, Dr. Sanchez and other friends. He
took it to be repaired.
At the abduction site he would hear "their"
voices in his head and he would be given information. Later he could
do this without going to the site.
On 21 February 1979, about a month and a half
after the first abduction, he was directed to the same
site again. By now he was asking if his wife, Iris, could accompany
him, and this time he took her along. At around 03:00 a top-shaped
UFO arrived and he and his wife were BOTH taken aboard the ship and
did not return until nearly 06:00 AM the following morning! This
time they were both aboard in full waking consciousness and remained
fully aware and alert the whole time. They could both remember
the whole experience without hypnotic regression.
These UFOnauts were described something like the
beings encountered by Herbert Schirmer in Nebraska in 1967. The
aliens wore tight-fitted blue-white one-piece suits covering
everything except the face. The Cardenases observed a serpentlike
emblem on the right breast of the garment and a buttonlike earphone
over the right ear with a small antenna sticking out the top. The
main physical difference was the smaller 4-foot size of the beings.
They spoke telepathically to the Cardenases, and conversed among
themselves in a language that sounded like Arabic.
The two male and one female crew members seemed
fascinated by Iris Cardenas' painted fingernails and toenails. The
aliens suffered from sneezing throughout the experience, and
explained that there was something that emanated from human bodies
that caused this in close proximity.
The control room in the spacecraft was surrounded
by one wall of small 3-dimensional TV-like screens showing a great
many things. Another wall was covered with illuminated colored
buttons of many shades.
Mrs. Cardenas said that she pinched herself to be
sure she was not dreaming. She also asked one of the aliens if she
could touch him and he agreed. The material of his suit felt slick
in one direction and rough in another, like tiny fish scales. His
body was firm under the material of the suit.
Para-psychic abilities after the contact
"They spoke to me of universal LOVE,"
Cardenas said, "And I have learned from them that this is what
I must do - LOVE and help my fellow man."
Cardenas experienced a period of time after the first abduction
where he was telepathically influenced to say meaningless words and
numbers for 5 minutes each night. He now reports heightened
telepathic sensitivity toward others. He once sensed that his
father-in-law need aid, and drove automatically to the spot where
the man's car had broken down.
Although no spacecraft was actually seen on the
first abduction, one was clearly observed by Filiberto and Iris the
second time as it approached and hovered near their parked car in
almost the same place as the first when Filiberto was snatched. The
ship did not actually touch down, but hovered a few feet above the
ground. It was as large as a refrigerated railroad car, roughly
mushroom-shaped, and had a smaller gondola on the bottom. It was a
dull silver-gray in color in the air until it "landed",
and then a row of colored lights of blue, violet, silver and white
came "on" and blinked all around the side of the
mushroom-shaped larger upper part. More lights of the same colors
blinked around the bottom of the gondola.
The Cardenas couple walked up to what looked like
a plate-glass window, and then suddenly they were through the
"glass" and inside the ship. They saw several narrow
one-legged chairs with tall backs. The chairs could turn around.
Then they saw the very human looking occupants of the ship. They
were from 3½ to 4 feet tall (smaller than Filiberto) and were
dressed in the tight-fitted silvery bluish-white one-piece suits
previously described by Filiberto. The emblem worn on the right side
of the chest looked like an "X" lying down with a raised
serpent in the center. The aliens have big eyes that are oblique,
like orientals, but they were longer and came farther around to the
side of the face.
how they looked like? -from a norwegain book on personal contacts)
They had a normal straight nose and a small mouth
that never moved.
Iris lighted a cigarette inside the craft and Mr.
Cardenas told her not to smoke "so that she would not
contaminate the atmosphere inside the ship".
When Cardenas, telepathically advised of this
second meeting, asked if he could bring his wife to the contact, he
was told that "they" considered Iris and him a unity or
that she was one with him and therefore could accompany him. Iris
asked the aliens if they were the ones who had abducted two little
girls from Puerto Rico (she had heard the story from a nurse when
she was in the clinic with Filiberto), and they answered that they
do not abduct little girls..., which relieved Iris of the fears for
her 3-year-old daughter, Barbarita.
The alien beings all had an identical arrangement
of 5 thin cables that came from the lower waistline up to the neck
of the suit and went inside. These cables did not hamper the
movement of the beings in any way.
Filiberto says the aliens spoke of many things,
but he does not want to elaborate on them at this time. Some things
are best left to the future, that there is a time for everything. He
and his wife were in the ship from about 04:00 to 05:15 AM. When
they returned home-about 05:30-Filiberto immediately called Dr.
Sanchez-Ocejo and told him of the second contact but that he
couldn't say anything until after 10:00 AM. He would call Sanchez
At exactly 10:00 AM a large mother-ship with 2
smaller disc-shaped objects flying around it was seen by hundreds of
witnesses at Miami International Airport (10 miles from this most
recent encounter). Mrs. Julia Gonzales and Mr. Ricardo Sanchez,
-airport employees working in the center of the airport runway area,
-stated that they observed all 3 objects clearly for several minutes.
They also saw passengers who were boarding a flight for departure
stop and stare at the unusual spectacle, and saw other airport
employees watching the ships in the sky overhead. Gonzales called a
local radio station to report the strange phenomenon and was
referred to Dr. Sanchez-Ocejo, the same one who investigated the
Cardenas case, whom they then called and reported the sighting,
almost while it was still going on.
When Sanchez hung up the phone from that call,
the second call from Filiberto, who was also trying to call him (on
his instructions from the aliens to wait until after 10:00- to
report the details of the second abduction aboard the spacecraft.
Filiberto knew nothing of the airport sighting until Sanchez told
him at that time, and then he began to wonder about the strange
instructions to wait until after the specific time.
When Sanchez interviewed the airport workers from
their particular sighting point and ascertained the exact position
of the spacecraft, said to be about 11:00 o'clock from magnetic
north and high in that direction, he could easily see that that
position is DIRECTLY over the place where the Cardenas couple was
taken aboard 5 hours earlier!
During the 4 hypnotic regressions on the first
abduction, it was discovered that the alien beings first told
Cardenas what they were going to do, and then they installed two
very small (electronic) devices in his head-one behing each ear.
After that they could transmit the same 3-D physical projections of
scenes suspended in the air in front of him that they showed him in
"TV panels" in the control room aboard
the spacecraft. He received full sight and sound, as well as other
sensory sensations such as heat and cold and smells. The scenes are
just as real to him as waking reality experience except that they
take place completely withing the "frame" of the scene,
like a very sophisticated picture frame suspended freely in the air.
His scenes of future events are shown to him in this way.
He was told that the only reason he is being
shown future events is to demonstrate, in time, the reality of his
contacts, so that people will believe him and will accept the "message"
on universal LOVE which he has been given.
The aliens have their place and we have ours,
except that WE have forgotten the real law of Universal Love-REAL
LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER, that is the key to solving all of our own
self-generated problems of existance...
The contacts continue (said
the book from-82, but do the still go on now in 2008?)
and Filiberto is being prepared for a larger mission. He wonders if
the world is ready for, or wants help...
When I joined Dr. Sanchez-Ocejo in his
investigation of this case, I was particularly interested in four
special aspects of this phenomenon which I had found prominent in
another very secret investigation I had been carrying on in that
part of the world for some years. The secrecy was necessitated by
the position of the contactee in his society and the harm that could
come to him if it got out. Nothing was ever released on this case
and no part of it was ever transmitted by mail. There was little
likely-hood that the contactee in Hialeah could have known anything
about the contactee in Puerto Rico, and I knew that the man in
Puerto Rico had never heard of Filiberto Cardenas.
The four points in common
1. Material devices implanted in the bodies of
the contactees by the extraterrestrial beings.
2. The contactees were taken to deep underwater
bases by the extraterrestrial beings in both cases.
3. In both cases the witness was shown a
sequence of dire events in store for Earth in our near future, and
this was done with picture panoramas projected in the air by
some mechanical means.
4. Both contacts have been going on for a long
time and are still going on!
In both cases the time for release of this
information to the world is NOW. I have inserted the summary
report of the Puerto Rican case in the back of this book as an
appendix. There are still other similar cases that mutually
support these two cases also.
They will be detailed in future
Here then are the complete details of the
sensational UFO abduction of Filiberto Cardenas as revealed by the
very able investigation of Dr. Sanchez-Ocejo and his special
investigation team. It is a pity that more such investigations are
not undertaken and published for those who seek to know.
A very pertinent point of interest; when I
called the local newspapers about this case when I first found out
about it, some three to four weeks after the first abduction, I
was told that they considered the case suspect and not worth
wasting any time on. Another paper said that it was very
suspicious and they had ceased following it. A third said some
nutty organization had gotten hold of the witness and was trying
to exploit it. This piqued my personal interest because this was
almost exactly what happened in the Bill Herrmann abduction case
in Charleston, South Carolina, which ultimately turned out to have
a vast amount of supporting evidence in it that was completely
overlooked in the cursory interviews conducted by the media there.
We will have more of these and we encourage
those new witnesses to come forward with their information as soon
