who went on to mention "There are 5 toes, 4 front toes & one
side appendage and 3 hair samples being analyzed:"
February 14, 2002 two men traveled to the Waynesboro Reservoir to check
out the reservoir after seeing a report on television that the reservoir
was dangerously low due to extreme drought conditions.
Upton hiking around
the reservoir, they discovered a set of tracks, almost three hundred that
walked the length of the reservoir and disappeared into the woods.
to the late hour, the men rushed home, phone their mother about what they
found. She in turned contacted another organization about the tracks.
I was out of town at the time. When I got home and checked email, I discovered
that a series of tracks were found in Waynesboro.
I contacted The Waynesboro
Record Herald to confirm that tracks were indeed found.
They were found
and emailed me a photo of one of the tracks. After the brief phone conversation,
I contacted Rick Fisher who along with this fiancé Carol went to
the reservoir on Tuesday February 19, 2002.
Rick took over 60 photos of
the tracks, the reservoir and the area. He also cast 5 tracks but only
two were salvaged due to the extreme muddy conditions.
got to the site before Rick and destroyed most of the better tracks by
casting them. Rick noticed a good number of tracks had been walked over.
Rick followed the tracks into where they may have entered the woods but
did not find any other tracks. Rick stated that the tracks measured 17
inches long and about 8 inches wide.
The stride was humanlike; however,
the stance between the tracks wider than a humans' stand. After examining
the tracks, Rick feels the tracks are genuine.
Although others disagree
and state that sneaker impressions are visible in certain photos, I have
not seen the photos with "supposed" sneaker prints.
In my opinion
the case remains unsolved and will remain open until further evidence
is presented. At which time, we will be sure to update you.
to Rick Fisher for his investigation and report.
