On Wednesday January 11th 1967, Mrs. Mabel Daniel, Linda Scarberry's mother, had her own sighting of a large winged creature over Route 62, near Tiny's drive-in restaurant, Point Pleasant WV, at 5:00 PM.

She was walking near the Diner when she saw a soaring object. "I thought it was an airplane, then I realized it was flying much too low," she reported.

"It was brown and had a wingspread of at least ten feet. I thought I could see two men's legs..hanging down from it. It circled over Tiny's and then flew off." The thing didn't seem to have a head or neck, the wings were motionless and it was completely silent as it glided through the air.
