TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY!
2002, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Suspicions Arise That Missing Hikers Abducted
New evidence in the missing hikers, Trenny Gibson and Thelma Pauline Melton, comes to light when a suspicious package and letter are discovered at a ranger’s station lookout in the Great Smoky Mountains.
The package which consisted of a used burlap sack contained several items. Upon inspection, it was deterimed that three of the items belonged to Trenny Gibson, missing since 1981. Several other items clearly belonged to Thelma Pauline Melton, missing since 1987. Authorities did not reveal the specifics of the items found.
But the interesting thing was that the burlap sack seemed to be covering in coarse, fine apelike hair. Samples were sent to a leading forensic lab for further analysis.
Some have postulated that the hair was similar to hairs found stuck to branches and trees. These hairs are widely considered authentic Bigfoot hair. Many think now that the missing hikers were abducted by lonely Bigfoot who roam the Great Smoky region.
A call has been made to the local authorities to follow up on this new development and not rule out the potential hostile abduction by Bigfoot angle.
