BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (AP) — Police in one western Pennsylvania community are searching for Bigfoot — but this quest has a better chance of success than most.
That’s because the Bigfoot being sought by the North Sewickley Township police actually exists — though police say the 28-inch statue of the Yeti has been missing from the planting bed in front of Mary Fabian’s home since at least Monday.
Fabian tells the Beaver County Times she bought the statue online four years ago and named him Harry after the 1987 film, “Harry and the Hendersons,”in which a family befriends a Sasquatch.
Acting police Chief Jeff Becze says investigators haven’t found any footprints — human or Yeti — or other clues as to who might have taken the statue.
