A Forest Lake woman claims she saw large waves rippling out in a swirling motion on the lake. She thought it seemed strange and called police. She told them she thought the churning water came from a helicopter.
"There was quite a stir for 5 to 7 minutes, with waves that went out 30 to 40 feet. Not up, but out," said the woman's neighbor Eugene Huerstel.
Since the woman's account was credible according to police, Forest Lake firefighters and the Washington County Dive Team went into the lake to look for the unusual and suspicious object.

This morning, one neighborhood has UFO mania after this disturbing discovery.
On the 400 block of Yondota, Shirley Hansard said she smelled something coming from under her front porch. She raked out a skull, of all things, and to some it appears to be unlike anything they've seen on earth.
One young man was convinced it was an extra-terrestrial. His mom called the Zoo, the Humane Society and the police.
It's created some water cooler talk in town but it's most likely an animal skull. Police called to the scene say it may be from an opossum.

Apparently Colorado is a popular place for Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). Last year there were 150 reported sightings in the state. The people who investigate those sightings and UFO sightings worldwide spent this weekend in Denver.
About 400 people gathered in the Denver Tech Center to talk about the unexplained. For 40 years the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) has been investigating UFO sightings in Colorado and around the world.
"We investigate with the FAA. We investigate with the military; any kind of flights out there. We look at wind direction. We take a very scientific approach and at times we just come up with 'we don't know what it was,'" Barry Roth with MUFON of Colorado said.
Members say although most people who report sightings believe they have seen a UFO, 80 percent of those sightings can be explained.
An example is a photo taken in Denver. A bright light, coupled with a lens flare, turned out to be the planet Jupiter. But many others -- the remaining 20 percent -- remain a mystery.
Nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman is the author of four books on UFOs. He says in more than 50 years of doing investigations, there are still a lot of misperceptions on this subject. He's says his work is based strictly on facts.
"I don't buy anything first time around," Friedman said. "I try to get rid of the mythology and replace it with facts.
Only 7 percent of UFO sightings are believed to be reported. MUFON encourages people to report any unusual sightings to their Web site. They say reporters can remain anonymous and ask for one of their investigations

NORTH PORT: Family members are scared to go outside at night because of what they say is lurking in the woods. They claim more than five alien encounters in the last four months have taken place. Now, an international UFO organization wants to crack the real-life X-file.
Michael Rowley and his son Shane moved to their North Port home in April.
"Well, I'm retired and I thought this was where you're supposed to go," Michael said. "The only bad part is the aliens around here."
Shane, 16, says he's had several extra-terrestrial encounters - most of which have been through his bedroom window.
"They kind of show up when they want. You get used to them, but it is weird to see them walking around the woods with those big eyes," he said.
"I haven't seen the wings but we know he flies," added Michael.
The Rowleys' twilight story has the attention of MUFON - Mutual UFO Network. The group is investigating and wants to setup surveillance. But Michael believes they won't show up if cameras are around.
He says the plaster cast of a foot-print is his key evidence. While it may be hard to see, Michael believes the creature has a cloven hoof.
"[It's] about this big with pure deep red eyes. It just looked at me for a second," Michael said.
Michael admits to rarely going out at night. But he says he believes they come in peace and that they're here for a reason.
"I'm a combat Vietnam vet and I don't wake up until something good is going on," he said. "This is something big and good going on."
The family expects another alien encounter during the next full moon.
"And the neighbor, I showed a sample of the foot print and he goes, 'nah.' No one believes me," he said.
To the skeptical, Michael says just come to his house for a visit.
"I didn't believe it at first," he said.
