Remember how people in Colorado and Nebraska said they saw mysterious drones flying around at night? Police officials are still looking into them.
What’s going on: Authorities have searched for the source of the mysterious drones and may have come with an answer, USA Today reports.
- Federal, state and local law enforcement believe there’s a central vehicle somewhere in the area controlling all of the mysterious drones, according to a Facebook post from the Phillips County Sheriff’s Office, which is located in Colorado.
- “None of the agencies can confirm that the drones are malicious. A task force has been organized and we are asking for your assistance. Specifically, we are looking for the command vehicle. We are looking for a closed box trailer with antennas or a large van that does not belong in the area.”
- The agencies set up a search team to find the source. They involved the public as well for assistance, according to USA Today.
How to help: Anyone with information can call the sheriff’s office at 970-854-3644.
Flashback: Last week, authorities spotted about 16 different unmanned drones flying through Colorado alone, according to the Deseret News.
- The drones fly 150 to 200 feet away from buildings.
- The drones — with a 6-foot wingspan — have been flying between 7 and 10 p.m.
- FAA spokesman Ian Gregor told CNN that federal and government agencies remain confused about the drones.
- Yuma County Sheriff Todd Combs said the drones likely won’t cause harm: “There are many theories about what is going on, but at this point, that’s all they are. I think we are all feeling a little bit vulnerable due to the intrusion of our privacy that we enjoy in our rural community, but I don’t have a solution or know of one right now. All I can say is don’t live your life in the fear of the unknown.”
