Halifax spaceship not stolen; just visiting another land in N.C.

The mystery of the missing spaceship from U.S. 58 West has been solved, according to Halifax County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Steve Cassada who released the initial missing flying saucer report over the weekend. The spaceship is on loan to Gunn Memorial Public Library in Caswell County.

Library Director Rhonda Griffin said the flying saucer is a featured attraction in part of an ongoing children’s program at the Yanceyville library entitled, “How Do You Get To The Library?”

Griffin, who formerly served as library director in Halifax County, said as part of the children’s program each letter of the alphabet is being been represented, and when it came time to depict the letter “U,” everyone agreed a UFO would be the perfect attention getter.

Thanks to the generosity of the spaceship’s owner who lives on Highway 58 West in South Boston, the UFO was transported across the state line to the library in Yanceyville.

But not to worry, the space ship will return to its launch pad in Virginia shortly, Griffin said.

According to Cassada, a neighbor reported Saturday the flying saucer had been taken prompting an investigation into the whereabouts of the metal spaceship.
