UFO group members and enthusiasts are questionning whether there really is anybody out there.
With sightings in decline in many areas and with an ongoing lack of evidence for extraterrestrial visitation despite decades of research and investigations, some UFO enthusiasts are beginning to step away from the phenomenon and give up the hunt.
