Fears that Nessie’s gone missing have been assuaged by people remembering that the creature doesn’t actually exist and in other news someone’s recorded something in Loch Ness that’s probably not the monster.
The video, which was recorded by tourist Rob Jones, appears to show something that could be described as ‘Nessie-shaped’ – if you were feeling generous – swimming across the lake before disappearing under the water.
35-year-old Rob told The Scotsman: “I saw it quite far across the Loch near the castle, but by the time I stopped the van, it was very close and other people stopped to take photos too.”
Unfortunately for monster hunters everywhere who think this video’s going to prove their enthusiasm for fictional beasts isn’t a waste of time, Rob’s poured cold water on the idea it’s a monster saying: ” I don’t believe in monsters, but would love to know what it was.”
We’re guessing a seal or a deliberate hoax Rob…
Nessie’s official recorder, Gary Campbell, has been rather concerned about the beast in recent months as the monster, like so many fictional creatures, hadn’t made any public appearances for at least eight months.
We’re quite worried that there has been an eight month gap since the last sighting. Last year was a record year for the 21st Century with eight sightings and then she seems to have disappeared.
More unusually, the last sighting was of the same thing at almost exactly the same time but 12 miles apart.
It’s been said that maybe the family Ness was having a domestic hence they haven’t stuck their head above water since!
Or Gary they’ve not stuck their heads above water because they don’t exist…

He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
