Report: Private Eyes on the Case After UFO Photographer Vanishes

A duo of California private eyes have taken on the unusual case of a UFO photographer who mysteriously vanished into cyberspace after posting his photos on the Internet, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Shortly after posting photos of the clunky-looking spacecraft hovering over a utility pole on, an Internet persona known only as “Raji” disappeared. The mystery peaked the interest of London-based Open Minds group, which specializes in “UFOlogy,” the Times reported.

An unidentified woman representing the Open Minds group then hired private eyes Frankie Dixon and T.K. Davis to help find Raji. She told the detectives that she e-mailed “Raji” shortly after he posted the pictures, and he said he snapped them in Capitola, Calif. Before she could ask more questions, Raji’s e-mail account was canceled and he wasn’t heard from again.

But Raji was not alone. Others in the Internet world have allegedly posted photos of the craft, which has become known as the “California drone” due to its apparent inability to fit a person inside, the paper reported.
