Date of Sighting: August 7, 2011
Time of Sighting: 2 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Roanoke, Virginia (See Map)

Description: I was driving back from a visit with my daughter and came to a stop light. I began to slow down when the car in front of me slammed their brakes on. Half way through shouting at the woman in the car in front of me, I saw why she had made such a short stop. There was a grey figure, about 6'5" with very long fingers, no eyes, mouth or nose that I could see. The grey color of it was lighter on the bottom, and faded into a darker shade towards it's chest. And it's fingers were at least 10" long. Traffic was at a stand still as there were at least 7 cars stopped as we watched it walk up a hill into the forest on the side of the road. Eventually a couple of Roanoke county police came, and one went into the woods, only to come out pale and shaking. I have searched all over the local news to see if there has been any reporting on this incident because where it happened is a very populated area about half a mile from Tanglewood shopping center (at the intersection of Ogden and Colonial Road). I have found nothing in the local news.

Note: Whew if this is true one has to wonder what this creature would be? Perhaps someone playing a joke in a costume? I believe that the witness is recounting a true experience because he provided full contact information and he recalls the exact location of the sighting. Anyone with information about this sighting is urged to file a report.

Update: September 18, 2011 - The Unsolved Mysteries & Paranormal Society of Virginia captured a photo of an unknown entity on the same day as the above sighting. This group will be interviewing the witness who reported this sighting.
