COUNTY: Perry County
LOCATION DETAILS: about four miles south of Moxahala on Route 13 on a pull off next to the road....the edge of Wayne National Forest
NEAREST TOWN: Moxahala
NEAREST ROAD: Rt. 13
OBSERVED: My family and I were on our way back from Chauncey, Ohio visiting a friend. We were on Route 13 just about four miles south of Moxahala, Ohio. I had to go to the bathroom real bad so I pulled off a access point. I got out leaving the car running so the kids would not be afraid. I had just walked around the car to go. I heard a bunch of noise in the woods near the car and to look up and see a face looking out at me. It was like a big type of face almost like a sunflower is my first thought. It was only six to eight feet away from me. It was a light colored brown when looking at it in the car lights. I froze and thought for a moment was it there before?.... the answer was no! When I saw it the sounds had stopped. I ran around the car and we sped away. I told the kids and they believed me because they felt the hair on there necks stand up like I had. It was about 12:30 AM in the morning.
ALSO NOTICED: Large noise and sounds just before but none after and during sighting.
OTHER WITNESSES: Three total in car. Two were in the car waiting for me to return.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 12:30 AM...dark, only light was from car lights.
ENVIRONMENT: Large trees inside Wayne National Forest. Very dark due to thickness of forest.
Follow-up investigation report:
Talked to the daughter who had seen the creature from the front seat of the car. She said it had a flat human-like face with hair on the cheeks. She estimated it was at least seven feet tall. The whole family was very shook up over the incident.
