The Loch Ness Centre in Drumnadrochit, Scotland has announced that the largest search for the elusive Loch Ness Monster in over 50 years is set to take place on the weekend of August 26 and 27.

The search is being organized by a group of volunteer researchers calling themselves Loch Ness Exploration.

They claim that this will be the biggest search for Nessie since the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau searched extensively for the creature in 1972.

There have been hundreds of Loch Ness Monster sightings reports since Adomnán wrote in the Life of St. Columba about a “water beast” that attacked a man who was swimming in the loch in the year 565.

Sightings of the Loch Ness Monster have been attributed to an assortment of causes such as the wakes made by birds, a large eel, an elephant from a traveling circus, a Greenland shark, seals, a Wels catfish, otters, deer, trees, seismic gas, some type of undiscovered turtle or a plesiosaur that somehow has survived for decades.

Now, Loch Ness Exploration hopes to put all of those theories to rest.

“Over the weekend, surveying equipment that has never been used on Loch Ness before will be enlisted to uncover the secrets of the mysterious waters,” the Loch Ness Centre wrote.

“This includes thermal drones to produce thermal images of the water from the air using infrared cameras, as observing heat from above could provide a crucial component for identifying any mysterious anomalies.”

“It’s our hope to inspire a new generation of Loch Ness enthusiasts and by joining this large scale surface watch, you’ll have a real opportunity to personally contribute towards this fascinating mystery that has captivated so many people from around the world,” said Alan McKenna of Loch Ness Exploration.

Whether they find anything remains to be seen. Especially if one theory about the Loch Ness Monster is true.

In that theory, creatures like the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot actually exist in a parallel universe, which would explain why they are so elusive and have never been captured.
