Australian defense officials say the country’s files on UFO sightings are lost or destroyed. Two months ago, an Australian newspaper submitted a Freedom of Information request for files on UFO sightings across the country. Government officials have come back empty handed.
"The files could not be located,” Australia Department of Defense's FOI assistant director, Natalie Carpenter, told the Sydney Morning Herald, the newspaper that had made the request. Two months spent going through drawers turned up only one UFO-related file, Carpenter said. All other files had been lost or destroyed.
This isn't the first time in recent history that a government body has misplaced UFO files. Earlier this year, Britain's Ministry of Defense released thousands of reports related to UFO sightings in Britain over the past few decades. All files from 1980 to 1982, however, were missing, raising suspicion among conspiracy theorists.
