Geologist Frank Kimbler has discovered what he believes could be pieces of debris from the crash site.
There are few events in UFO lore as hotly debated as the Roswell incident, a case that has been covered in countless books, documentaries, TV shows and movies over the last 70 years.
One man who has spent a great deal of time investigating what happened is Frank Kimbler, a geologist who has visited the scene of the incident to the northwest of Roswell several times.
Using a metal detector, he has managed to find a number of unidentified metal fragments - most around the size of a fingernail - scattered around the general vicinity of the crash site.
"Some of the material that I found out there has been tested and it has anomalies that suggest that it might be of extraterrestrial origin," he said.
"I started looking around all over the place, looking to see if the helicopters were going to fly over, because you get paranoid when you read the stories about Roswell and what's happened to people when they've come forward with stuff."
Whether or not the material actually is from a crashed UFO however remains unclear.
