Possible daylight sighting by motorist 2 miles north of Mena

YEAR: 2018

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August


STATE: Arkansas

COUNTY: Polk County

LOCATION DETAILS: [Investigator (MM) notes:

GPS coordinates: 34.6119725, -94.2168322

In the power line route perpendicular to railroad track crossing Polk County Road 76W

NEAREST TOWN: Acorn, Arkansas

NEAREST ROAD: Highyway 71

OBSERVED: It was about 3:30 pm. and I was driving a backroad to Wal-Mart. There is a spot where I always look to see if traffic is coming in my direction. I looked up and saw a really tall man in what I thought was an old fashioned sweat suit with the hood up. My first thought was why is he hunched over, then why was he wearing a sweat suite as it was 88 degrees out. I thought nothing of it until his arm stretched out behind him and I was like no way is that human. It was very, very tall, medium to dark gray, and just didn't seem like a person. It took me less than twenty seconds to reach where he would cross, but I say nothing. This was on August 8, 2018. Since that time, every time I take that road, I try to figure out what I saw. It was so bizarre.

ALSO NOTICED: I went to a local Bigfoot meeting after the fact to figure out what I saw and one of the leaders said he lives very close to that spot and has seen evidence and sounds.


OTHER STORIES: Some where I read a report of someone seeing a tall, grey bigfoot that seemed lanky. This is what I saw and it didn't make sense as all of the pictures and descriptions didn't fit what I saw. It was surreal and to this day I question what I saw. I did find one picture that looked similar but with darker hair online.


ENVIRONMENT: He was walking away from the railroad track and in between bushes and trees that were very high.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Matthew Moneymaker:

I spoke with her by phone. She is in her 60ís and very credible. She saw what she described. It has to be very tall for her to see the gap between legs among this brush.

There have been many sightings over the years in this general area.
