Alien abduction expert Derrel Sims is on a mission

A Houston, Texas resident is on a mission to capture an extraterrestrial.

Derrel Sims, dubbed the Alien Hunter, claims to be the world’s leading expert on alien abduction. He has investigated alleged extraterrestrial events for nearly four decades. And, according to his website, in that time, his research “has focused on physical evidence, and led to his groundbreaking discoveries of alien implants and alien fluorescence.”

As he recently explained to Houston’s NBC affiliate, KPRC Local 2, his personal experiences with extraterrestrials are what have made alien hunting his life’s mission. Sims claims to have had multiple encounters with extraterrestrials, with the first being at the young age of four. He cites his background as “an investigator, a former cop, a combat cop in the military and a private investigator” to highlight his investigative skills.

Some of Sims’ alien hunting was recently seen on Uncovering Aliens, a show that has aired on Animal Planet, Science Channel, Destination America, and American Heroes Channel. He appears as part of an investigative team that includes Mike Bara, Steven Jones, and Open Minds’ Maureen Elsberry.

In addition to his skills as an investigator, Sims is also a therapist and a Certified Master Hypnotherapist who has reportedly helped hundreds of people who claim they have encountered extraterrestrials. He asserts that alien abductions are quite common, claiming “one in every four people is abducted by aliens and the victims come from all walks of life.” He is also a proponent of the belief that alien abductions run in the family.

If you believe you’ve had contact with extraterrestrials, Sims has an alien abduction questionnaire on his website.

But Sims isn’t out to force his beliefs on anyone. He is focused on his mission. As he tells KPRC Local 2, “I still have a lot of work to do. I’m an investigator, finding the evidence and doing something with it is my business.”

    I just watched your eppisode on sightings in Myrtle beach area and was taken aback, because my wife and I both saw that same reddish orangish colored orb, but we live inland 10-12 miles from the beach, in Bucksport, just south of Conway South Carolina. we were on our porch and it was just starting to lose light when I saw the orb, it moved around spiratically then it split into 3 and the 1 stayed still while the other 2 moved around, then after a few minutes they went back into 1 and moved around more for a few more minutes then it just seemed to disapear or wink out, I don’t know but it was just gone. I would say we watched it for about 15-20 minutes. I have been watching for it to come back ever since, but no luck, I have a good video camera now, so I can catch it on video next time. My phone camera wouldn’t capture the orb, I tried, but now I have a GoPro camera, for next time, I hope ! This sighting was increditable and I won’t ever forget it, My friends and family think I am crazy, we know what we saw !
