Travis Walton disappeared for five days back in 1975. But what happened to him? "Paranormal Witness" recounted his story through interviews and reenactments. Walton said that through hypnosis, he was able to remember being taken on board an alien spaceship.

His abduction was witnessed by friends, who said the experience has haunted them to this day.

"I was afraid to look out the window. For a guy, 25 years old, being afraid you’re gonna see a spaceship," one of them, Ken Peterson, said emotionally. "Something that I haven’t gotten over. I wish I could."

Walton's abduction has been considered the most famous close encounter of all time, according to the New York Daily News. That said, though, in 2009 he appeared on the Fox game show "Moment of Truth, where a polygraph test said he was lying about what happened.

True or not, "Paranormal Witness" recounts terrifying tales every Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on Syfy.
