DAVIS, W.Va., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- Members of Sasquatch Watch of Virginia said they collected potential evidence in West Virginia's Dolly Sods Wilderness area, but had no Bigfoot sightings.

Billy Willard, the group's founder, said he and members of his team collected samples of suspicious feces and casts of footprints during the weekend camp-out at the wilderness area in the Allegheny Mountains but they didn't catch any glimpses of the legendary man-ape, West Virginia Public Broadcasting reported Wednesday.

"Typically we go out and visit sites where there's been previous sighting reports," Willard said. "We do get encounters called in to a hot line that we have, and we go out and we'll research those areas looking for evidence such as footprints, strange stick tree structures and that kind of thing."

Willard said he has never personally seen a Sasquatch, but he is convinced that they exist.

"I could accept that this thing is human, whether it's an undiscovered Native American tribe of people, I could accept that this is some kind of North American ape that just simply hasn't been documented yet," he said. "Those are the two main theories."
