COUNTY: Jefferson County
LOCATION DETAILS: Southwest of St Louis, MO (proper) Hwy 270, exit Gravois rd (Hwy 30) west, 11 miles to where Carol Park rd. exits to the left, as you go west on 30
NEAREST TOWN: High Ridge, MO
NEAREST ROAD: Hwy 30 / Carol Park Rd
OBSERVED: I was driving home on Carol Park Rd (south, off of Hwy 30) at approx 11:00 pm. I traveled about 200 feet south of Hwy 30 and was changing radio stations, when I looked up as I "caught" a glimpse of an "upright type" of animal, cross Carol Park Rd, from west to east. That area is heavily wooded on both sides. It is an area where the road runs thru the top part of a deep ravine, that leads down to a watershed (creek). I was pretty surprised, and told my wife when i got home. We both just shrugged it off. It wouldn't surprise either of us, at all, if it actually was a bigfoot. There is lots of wildlife in the area.
ALSO NOTICED: none
OTHER WITNESSES: myself
OTHER STORIES: no, I hadn't heard of other incidents in this area. I had heard of many incidences in Wayne county, MO, from the last 30-40 years
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 11:00 pm very cold out, overcast, as i remember
ENVIRONMENT: Two lane road with wooded hills on both sides.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Chris Callahan:
I spoke to the witness via telephone.
-The figure jumped off the side of the hill onto the roadway, crossed the road, and then went up the hill on the other side of the road (7-8 feet between steps). Heavily forested on both sides.
-The animal was 30 ft from the vehicle's headlights
-It was dark colored and glanced over towards the vehicle, but showed no eye shine or glow
-The figure was 7-8 feet tall with a stocky build and estimated to weigh around 400 pounds.
-The sighting lasted for about 3-4 seconds.
-No other details could be viewed due to the quickness of this sighting.
