The witnesses’ story begins just after 5 a.m. while completing a rural paper delivery route in the Silerton area when the sound of a helicopter was heard while at a stop sign.
“This is not unusual,” the witness stated. “As things get pretty boring on my route I tend to notice things out of the ordinary. I sat for about two minutes awaiting the helicopter as the sounds grew closer. I couldn’t find them in the sky so I continued on my route.”
But four miles down the road, the witness caught sight of a helicopter over the tree line.
