Witness reports yowie sighting north of Roma

YOWIE enthusiasts in the southwest have been buoyed by news of a sighting of the mysterious beast 15-20km north of Roma.

According to the Australian Yowie Research Facebook page, the notoriously camera-shy creature was seen on Monday after a female driver on the Carnarvon Highway noticed what appeared to be a large rock on the side of the road.

As the witness approached the area, the 'rock' then stood up on two legs and revealed itself to be five-foot tall and covered in auburn red hair.

Following the incident, the witness drew a sketch of the creature which she posted on Facebook, drawing a mixed response.

Viki Brown said her late grandfather "had seen one when he was a boy in Kingaroy" and that his description resembled the sketch.

Other users suggested it might have been a man dressed in camouflage or even Bigfoot.
