Investigating BRFO Report # 3401

After reading the below report I decided to drive along this road at night with a dash cam running in the hopes of recording another such encounter. This did not happen, but I did realise that the above pictured bigfoot statue is along this very road. Is the statue there because of sightings in the area?

Report # 3401  (Class A) 
Submitted by witness on Monday, November 19, 2001.

Motorist and passenger catch glimpse of humanlike figure crossing the road

(Show Printer-friendly Version)
YEAR: 2001
MONTH: November
DATE: 11/18/2001
STATE: Pennsylvania
COUNTY: Mercer County
LOCATION DETAILS: Lamor connects Rte 18(Hermitage) and Rte 19(Mercer) in Mercer County.
OBSERVED: I was returning home from a NFL football game that I had attended out of state. It was about 8:45pm. The road I was traveling on had a lot bends with patches of woods on both sides, broken up by houses every so often. It is a back road that connects two towns. The posted speed limit ranges from 10mph to 45mph. I was traveling at about 55-60mph on the straighter sections(I was trying to get home, I had been driving for a couple of hours). This is where it happened. One of my good friends was sitting in the front with me. We had the radio up loud and was singing and staring straight ahead. Two more of my friends where in the back seat talking. As I came around a bend into a straight-a-way, with woods on both sides, something caught my vision just in the edge of the headlights(high beams). I saw the mid and lower torso, and legs of what appeared to be a person. It appeared to be crossing the road. I saw it take a right and then left stride and then it went into the trees on the right side of the road. I vaguely saw the color, it was a light brown. When I first saw the movement I thought it was a person going into the woods, this is the movement it had, however it glided with great speed. It happened so quickly, I thought that I had imagined it until I looked at my friend sitting next to me, he was staring back at me, this made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. I asked him if he "seen that" and he yelled "yeah". I had slowed down to about 40mph with the intent to stop(not really knowing what to do) when the two in the back seat yelled "whats going on?" I said, me and (name of friend) saw something, and the two in the back told me to keep going, they did not want to stop. I now wish I had. stopped.
OTHER WITNESSES: There were 2 witnesses including myself. I was driving and the other witness was looking out the windshield.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: About 8:45pm. It was a cool, clear, and dark night.
ENVIRONMENT: Flat, wooded area heavily populated with wildlife(turkey, rabbits, deer), few houses and farms.

Bigfoot search party in Girard wants to ‘prove to the world’ it exists

A Youngstown man thinks he saw Bigfoot on his way home, so the group drove to the Valley from California

GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) – A group that’s looking for Bigfoot drove all the way from California because they believe the creature is hiding out in Girard.
Searching for Bigfoot, Inc. traveled to the Valley as part of their $1 million bounty competition.
They came here because of a picture taken by Xavier King. King was driving to his Youngstown home when he said he saw Bigfoot twice. The second time, he got out and took a picture.
“I had seen something, I don’t know what it was, I had seen something, that’s all I know,” King said. “I got out and took a picture.”
He showed his friend Angela Britt, who is a firm believer in Bigfoot. She went online and contacted the Searching for Bigfoot group.
“He said, ‘Send me the pictures, I’m going to send them to my lab and send you back the results,’ and he did, with the diagram, with the head, the legs, the arms, and everything,” Britt said.
“We know they use rivers and creeks as byways and freeways. Food, vegetation that they could eat, all of this was in those pictures,” said T.J. Biscardi, director of operations for Searching for Bigfoot.
T.J.’s father, Tom Biscardi, founded the company. Searching for Bigfoot, Inc. is owned by Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. — a publically traded company (BGFT).
T.J. said he started believing himself when he claims to have run into bigfoot in Texas in 2008.
The $1,000,000 bounty started April 2 and will be offered through Christmas, December 25, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. Because King’s photo is part of a competition, the group wouldn’t show it to us, though they said it could be the creature.
“Ohio is a major migrational path going north. You have to understand, they follow rivers and clusters of forests and these creatures,” Biscardi said. “I’ve been tracking them from Paris, Texas since last December and now I’ve been tracking them up north here.”
He said he gets more sightings in Ohio during this time of year because the creatures are migrating north.
The group travels the country for nine months out of the year and gathers evidence based on sightings. Biscardi said their research shows the creatures mainly travel and feed at night.
He said if they see it, they’ll tranquilize it.
“So we’re jumping up in front of him, hopefully. With the team ready, we’ll get to capture one of these creatures and bring it back and prove to the world that they exist.”
The group will be camping out here for the entire weekend, waiting to see if they can catch the big guy.
To report sightings or activity, Biscardi said you can contact the Bigfoot Hotline at 415-518-8494.
