“Bigfoot” Abduction Called Hoax
Eureka, Calif. (AP) – A young women reported abducted in rugged mountains by a hairy, ape-like creature known as Bigfoot has shown up screaming outside a rural resort apparently unhurt. “She’s not in too bad a shape.” Humboldt County Sheriff Gene Cox said Monday night, adding that he believed the whole affair had been a hoax. Cox said Cherie Darvell, 23, of Redding, Calif., had some minor scratches and bruises on her arms and told a nurse her left arm hurt. She was taken to Humboldt Medical Center at Hoopa for examination shortly after she was found late Monday night.
Miss Darvell appeared outside the Bluff Creek Resort, about five miles from where she was reported abducted on Saturday, Cox said. She was mumbling. “They wouldn’t stop and pick me up,” he said. One of her tennis shoes was missing, but her clothing was clean, and she smelled of perfume when found, Cox said. He reported that when investigators asked her if she had been abducted by the legendary monster, she began to scream and refused to answer any questions. “I still think it’s a hoax,” said Cox. “I still don’t believe that she was abducted by Bigfoot.”
Miss Darvell’s friends said she was an unemployed beautician who also used the name Cherie Nelson. She was one of five members of an independent film crew trying to photograph Bigfoot, a creature reported sighted in this Northern California area many times during the past 20 years. The crew kept its cameras rolling while up to 150 persons conducted a search for the missing woman.
A tennis shoe found by the searchers had been identified as belonging to Miss Darvel. The shoe, along with several large footprints 16 inches long and eight inches wide, were found near the spot where she disappeared, authorities said. Dogs were brought to the scene Monday but were unable to pick up a scent from either the shoe or the footprints.
Meanwhile, at the Bigfoot Research Center in The Dalles, Ore., director Peter Byrne said two associates were investigating to determine whether Bigfoot really was involved. Byrne said he personally was skeptical, although the size of the footprints was consistent with previous finds. He said Bigfoot abductions were not without precedent. He said that about 45 years ago an Indian on Vancouver Island B.C. and a Canadian prospector were carried off at night in separate incidents. Both later said they were taken to caves where they were surrounded by 18 to 20 of the hairy creatures, who eventually lost interest in the humans and allowed them to escape.
Scientist never have confirmed the creature’s existence, but Byrne said he thinks Bigfoot is a “fossil man of some kind, not an ape.” He said 94 persons the research center has interviewed who claim to have seen a Bigfoot all described it walking upright, 6-foot-5 to 7-feet tall, powerfully built, weighing 350 to 400 pounds and possessing a thick neck, large eyes and jaw and a sloping forehead.
