Bigfoot is actually of the subfamily of primate Homininae and it diverged from the homo exactly 4.2 million years before present, which was 0.73 million years prior to the evolution of Australopithecus afarensis, whose presence in the Horn of Africa was verified by specimen AL 288-1. Bigfoot was a pseudo-“missing link” between the Austaliopithecines and the Ergaster genus of species agglomerate. Due to its vestigial anatomorphological inheritance from its ancestral Southern Apes, it bore a conspicuous resemblance to Chimpanzees and the so called “Sasquatch” of Sino-Tibetan and Nepalese myths, as well as the Algonquin-Blackfoot indigenous North Americans’ legend of Da-Ne Kasedanuki, leading many leading anthropologists of the first few decades of the 21 st century to assume that Bigfoot was a hoax perpetuated by cryptozoologists. Bigfoot’s mitochondrial megahaplogroup clusters derive from their Most Recent Common Maternal Ancestor which diverged from the maternal lineage Mitochondrial Eve descends from about 4 million years ago. Therefore, their mtDNA diverges from ours on a rate of 1 out of 1,735 base pairs. By contrast, human nuclear DNA across global populations diverges an average of 1 out of 1,150 base pairs on average. Their Y-chromosome is more visceral and simian. By analysis of their pseudoautosomal region on their Y-chromosome, which is the outermost fringe region of the chromosome which can recombine with homologous regions on the X-chromosome, (however the bulk of the Y-chromosome is incapable of homologous recombination with the X) we have concluded that about 0.0032 more of their sex chromosome base pairs are capable of recombination. The deterioration of the pseudoautosomal region in the Y-chromosome has begun since the divergence of the X and Y chromosomes from their ancestral chromosome 166 million years before present. As evidence, most ectothermic vertebrates lack the gender-determining function in their genome, but rather possess an environmentally determined gender system. The decay of this pseudoautosomal region has been constant at a rate of 12 base pairs per 5 generations, however this is in highly prolific reproducers, and as reproduction has decreased inversely proportional to the increase of cognitive function and prefrontal cortex gerantomorphication, the decay of the pseudoautosomal region has been exponentially retarded. Therefore, we can assume that the paternal lineage of Bigfoot could not have been separate from homo sapiens more than 6 million years, which suggests that paternally, Bigfoots are closer to Bonobos and Lowland Chimpanzees than to humans.

Their is a theory that some of the lost tribes Israel ended up in Britain I was wondering if there was any DNA evidence of it.

With the ever increasing human population and ever decreasing habitat for such a creature to hide in, why is that nobody has the found the body of a deceased Bigfoot or ever shot and killed one or even actually got any good footage of one?

I would suggest you don't find bear bones hardly ever in the wild and we know they are all over the place. I have hunted all my life since I was just a young kid. I have seen one in all those years of spending an inordinate amount of time deep in the woods. It was pure chance I saw that one. It is my belief they are as smart as a human, but wild at the same time. It is not difficult to hide from other humans in the woods and not be seen. I have done it many times. People in general, even hunters, are often unaware of what is going on even close to them. Animals will get down and hide. I see deer do it and get into the bottom of ditches, etc, to hide and crawl out of an area. It is easy to think we can walk into the woods and be this sensory dynamo. However, we hardly have the ability animals do. They can detect human presence long before you get near them most of the time. Some have no fear of humans and don;t attempt to hide, but keep their distance. Something as smart as a human, but that is wild could easily detect us and hide from us.
I don't think they have such a large population and exist in small family groups. We find other species all the time. We have been unable to catch on camera species we know exist. There is a type of big cat they have been trying to photograph for decades without luck. We have various photos and evidence of tracks all over. The photos aren't clear and convincing evidence though and eyewitness testimony is worthless, however you would convict a murderer to life in prison or worse over the same or less qualified witness testimony. All the skeptics I have run across have spent little time in the woods, and even so like I said I have spent over 40 years in the woods and saw one once. Albeit for a few minutes and was able to watch it through a rifle scope. I also think they know if you are going to hurt them somehow. Or not, maybe they don't know what a rifle is.
