Who knows, maybe the Beast caught the missing man. Or maybe it was a Bigfoot. There have been several Bigfoot sightings in the area as well, and some people think Bigfoot captures people, because many, many people disappear in national parks every year, and are never found. Davis Paulides goes over these disappearances in his Missing 411 books, which are supposed to be really good, but I haven't gotten the chance to read any of them yet.
I wrote a bit about the Beast of Bray Road in my book Cryptid U.S., which I am now finishing up and will hopefully publish soon.
