The following sighting was forwarded to me by a Spirit Rescue International team member:
One summer, a couple of years ago, my sister and her husband were moving from Georgia to Alabama. She was driving a vehicle ahead of her husband and he had fallen behind her a little.
(NOTE: My sister said she and her husband were both driving vehicles from Columbus, Georgia, starting on State Route 169, which had then become labeled US 80 (same road, changes names), heading toward Montgomery, Alabama. The actual sighting was at the SE edge of the Tuskegee National Forest on US 80, before it intersected with US Route 29.)
She saw movement in the brush along the freeway, between two expanses of trees. There was someone crouched down watching the cars go by. As my sister glanced over at the figure, she then could not take her eyes off of it. It was not human.
It was the basic shape of a man, and not like any ape or monkey or orangutan she had ever seen (and she had seen many in her day). The figure had light red hair covering the body, and I am not certain if she said the face was more thinly covered with or obscured by the hair. This is one of the details I wish she could remember.
She did say the two made eye contact for several seconds. She knew he saw her and he knew she knew he knew, too. (Say that 3 times real fast...)
He turned sideways and took several big strides into the trees and quickly disappeared.
My sister almost wrecked the car, swerving to look behind her following the figure as long as she could, and hadn't even been watching the road, she was so connected and perhaps shocked to see this figure. But she got herself together and called her husband behind her on the cell phone. She saw he was just passing the area she had seen the figure.
"Tell me you saw that!" she begged. He told her to calm down and asked what she was talking about. He had been fiddling with the radio and had not looked up in time to see the figure.
My sister described the figure, as a young person, perhaps the size of a 10-12 year old boy, all covered in light red hair, but you could see the body details to see it was obviously male and not wearing clothes. She described the eye contact, the strong but brief mental connection from that contact, and how absurdly strange the encounter was. She just wanted to confirm someone else had seen the figure too.
That's all I can recall of the story right now. Not a big deal, but our family's only Bigfoot encounter story.
Oh, yeah. This was the first time I had ever heard of anyone seeing a young creature like this. All I had ever heard of before were fully grown ones. And normally they were black or brown.
I have since heard a of a white one seen and heard returning distinct calling sounds in a Kentucky field clearing outside a woods. Maybe they have assorted hair colors, just like people.
