I’ve been fascinated by this story ever since I clapped eyes on a black and white photo of the Granger Taylor UFO. Was this talented young man really in contact with extraterrestrials and where did he disappear to?
Granger Taylor was an extremely talented young man who dropped out of high school early. He was a was a mechanical genius who managed to build a one-cylinder automobile at the tender age of 14.
Through his teenage years he built many other impressive machines but the Granger Taylor UFO turned out to be the most famous.
From a young age Taylor had a strange fascination with alien craft and was very interested in how they were powered.
He ended up building his own spaceship out of a pair of satellite dishes. This flying saucer became a ‘little den’ for Taylor and he equipped it with a furniture, TV and a stove.
A few years later Taylor claimed that he was in constant contact with alien lifeforms who were teaching him how to get his UFO off the ground. He also claimed that they promised to take him to their home world.
One night in November, 1980, Taylor disappeared and left a note for his family. There was a huge search that lasted years but he was never to be seen again.
The Granger Taylor UFO
The UFO young Taylor built still sits in the backyard of the Taylor home at Duncan on Vancouver Island. He left many unfinished projects behind in the barn that sits near the grounded vehicle.
It was in this barn that he decided to leave this note to his parents:
“Dear Mother and Father, I have gone away to walk aboard an alien ship, as recurring dreams assured a 42 month interstellar voyage to explore the vast universe, then return. I am leaving behind all my possessions to you as I will no longer require the use of any. Please use the instructions in my will as a guide to help. Love, Granger”.
His parents have not given up hope of him returning one day and leave the back door to their property open every night in case he shows up.
A young man this talented could not have simply disappeared off the face of the planet – surely he would stand out as a brilliant individual no matter where he ended up?
The search lasted for four whole years but there was no sign of Taylor. Hospital, passport, employment, and vehicle records were all extensively checked but there was no sign of this brilliant young man.
