At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

ON THIS DAY IN WEIRD



On This Day in Weird, December 29...

1974: Multiple witnesses in Lumberton, North Carolina, report seeing bright lights in the sky, at the same time a family of four calls police to describe a humanoid figure dressed in a "silver and black suit with some sort of helmet" prowling around their home in Forest Acres. Deputies search in vain.



1979: Four-year-old Antonita Tamayo vanishes from her home in Arroyo Sujayar, Albacete, Spain, somehow eluding search teams with tracking dogs for three days. On the fourth, officers find her in a wooded area, apparently unfazed by cold or exposure. She tells rescuers that a tall woman dressed in white, carrying a torch, kept her warm and fed her during her absence.
