COUNTY: Washtenaw County
LOCATION DETAILS: (edited)
NEAREST TOWN: Ypsilanti
NEAREST ROAD: Geddes
OBSERVED: While driving home with my mother at 01:12 hours, on Tuesday, August 07, 2001, in Washtenaw County, Michigan. My Mother and I observed a large hairy creature kneeling on the north side of Geddes Road, (edited).
The creature was not a bear and closely resembled an ape like human form, covered with dark brown hair, but lighter in the facial area, with broad shoulders. The head seemed to be part of the shoulder area with no neck. The area around the head had longer hair in the back.
After passing the creature, my Mom turned the car around and headed back westbound on Geddes Road, but the creature had fled north into the wooded area.
OTHER WITNESSES: My Mother, who was driving and talking to me and saw the large hairy form on the left side of the road.
OTHER STORIES: There are people who have claimed to have seen a black bigfoot in the early 1980's in the area of Denton Road & Barr Roads.
In the late 1980's, two people I talked with claim that while driving eastbound on Geddes Road, east of Harris Road, that they were paced by a white humanoid creature, while driving east bound at 70-80 km/h, that resembled a large man covered with fur.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Clear skies, some meteors falling from the sky. High Beam headlights were on.
Follow-up investigation report:
Interview session went well. He went back the next day to look for physical signs but was unable to distinguish anything. The witness has also heard of other area sightings over the years.
