Posted: Updated:

A conference Saturday in Memphis will feature a man who claims to have been abducted in Arizona by an unidentified flying object.

Travis Walton is scheduled to appear at "UFO Abductions Unveiled" at a daylong gathering at Southwest Tennessee Community College.

Walton claims to have been taken for five days from the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona in 1975. A news release about the conference describes his case as one of the most prominent in UFO lore.

The gathering is sponsored by the Tennessee chapter of the Mutual UFO Network.
