One category has been missed in my view, ie:

False memory induced by an investigator or hypnotist during a
'regression' where the witness did not have prior concious knowledge
of an abduction.

The will to find an abduction in a witness is so strong and the
witness' state of conciousness during hypnosis is such that it lends
to easy suggestion, I am sure this category equates to many cases.
