"I am not sure of the exact year of this; however, I believe it to be actual fact as it was related to me by my father, who does not make this stuff up," reports Thursday. "My dad's nephew's family were about to go on holidays, and my cousin went back in house to check that everything was switched off just to double-check. He put his car keys on kitchen counter, and when he turned to pick them up... they were gone. They searched everywhere and still no keys to be found.
"He was so bemused by it all he underwent regression hypnosis after he returned from holiday, and in regression he remembered putting the keys down and after when they were gone. In-between, however, there was no memory at all -- nothing. Those few seconds of his life were just gone. By the way, the keys never turned up, and they live in that house to this day."
