I have revised the search elements, based on Alain Figer's probable sighting of USA 186 as an UNID on 2016 Mar 12 UTC
near 19:18:46 UTC. 

The following TLEs bracket the probable time of the manoeuvre. Their mean motion closely approximates Alain's sighting. 

                                                         259 X 469 km
1 70013U          16070.38291669  .00056000  00000-0  22510-3 0    06
2 70013  96.8989 109.6991 0155900  72.3998   2.5331 15.67260000    06
                                                         259 X 478 km
1 70023U          16070.76361113  .00056000  00000-0  22510-3 0    01
2 70023  96.8989 110.0782 0162700  70.9339   2.7370 15.65645000    00

Tonight, the above yield predictions about 2 minutes apart in time.
