The Late Nessie?

rines-image-1972–MonsterQuest debuted for a new season this February with an episode on the possible demise of the Loch Ness Monster. Sightings of Nessie have diminished in recent years, leading to speculation by some that the great cryptid may be no more.

Robert Rines is a long-term Nessie researcher who had a sighting of Nessie in 1972, and has made searching for the elusive beast part of his life since then.  Rines is no whack  job and no slouch in the brains department, having a number of college degrees, including some in physics.  Rines used sonar and other technologies in his investigations, capturing the attached image in the 1970’s.

Now in his 80’s, Rines felt that there may have been two or more cryptids in Loch Ness in the 1970’s, but that the creature’s remains now reside in the murky depths.  His possibly final visit to the Loch with the MonsterQuest crew failed to reveal Nessie, living or dead.

Believers can point to a 2007 video of moving objects below the surface of  Loch Ness, however, as hope that Nessie is still with us…

    I still think the Surgeon’s Photo was more of a staged re-enactment than an outright hoax.
