Mysterious object as described by Frederick

CaseEdit

Details: Frederick Valentich was an Australian pilot flying a Cessna 182 light aircraft over the Bass Strait near Cape Otway when he sighted what seemed to be a UFO flying nearby in the vicinity. He was a competent pilot employed by Southern Air Services from Moorabbin, Australia near Melbourne. Upon seeing the object, he maintained radio contact with his airfield for several minutes, describing the object as it darted and swerved around him. Moments after he reported the sighting, Frederick inexplicably vanished; a series of photographs by Roy Manifold of the shoreline nearby show a strange blot resembling an explosion in the air.

Suspects: One theory is that Frederick was abducted by the object he encountered. Another theory is that he was attacked by the object or became disoriented after seeing it and crashed into the sea.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the September 29, 1993 episode.
Results: Unsolved. Frederick has since been declared legally dead. No trace of him or his plane has ever been found.
