SALISBURY, N.C., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Cable network Animal Planet said a camera crew will join a Bigfoot search led by a North Carolina man who claims to have videotaped the legendary ape in 2009.
Tahli Kouperstein, director of communications for the Animal Planet, said the camera crew will follow Bigfoot seeker Michael Greene of Salisbury as he looks Saturday for the Sasquatch in the Uwharrie National Forest in Montgomery County, the Charlotte Observer reported Monday.
"They are using modern technology to finally find the legendary and elusive creature," Kouperstein said.
He said the footage will be part of the network's six-part series on U.S. Bigfoot sightings.
Greene said he will be searching in the same area where he claims to have captured thermal-imaging equipment video of Bigfoot in 2009. His videos are posted to his Web site, but the potential presence of Bigfoot in the footage is unclear.
