How far is the location from the "Whitehouse".
I'm not trying be a jerk, but I have to say it was probably just a guy wanting attention. The problem with people reporting these huge, thick, muscular humanoids with wings, is that the size of the wings compared to the body would need to be gigantic.

I am curious if this sighting is near coal grounds? I have had a few encounters since 1993, with a creature I call screech. My first encounter was within 50 feet, and was at night. I have had a few encounters since, in multiple locations, all around active coal mines. I believe there are more than one, but I give them the same name due to the loud crying screech they make. I visited Point Pleasant for the first time last year, and saw a statue of what they call Mothman, and it is a very close recreation. The eyes, the physical structure, and the height are very close to screech, including the feet, which have a rear spur. The wings resemble a bat, not a moth, that is the major difference. Screech also has tan hair on its shoulders, upper arms, thighs, and below abdominal area. I know these creatures do not bleed, so they must not die. They fly fast, and wings are stonger than tree tops. So far they have not killed anyone I know of, but one guy did get shoved from behind. I believe they are here for a reason, but I am still yet to figure out why. Go out and look for them, they seem to stay around open surface mines. It will stay with you for the rest of your life, literally.

The Mothman Prophesies is one of my favorite movies... though it does skip a lot of details in reference to aerial phenomena before and after the Point Pleasant event.
The stories of this creature continue to surface and circulate, but they don't get as much web coverage as things like UFOs and hauntings, etc.
I know I have heard stories about a Mothman like creature being seen in other parts of the country. I think it was Monster Quest that had an episode about some people seeing a Mothman like creature around the bridge that collapsed in Minnesota but when I tried to do some research I couldn't come up with anything.
Maybe people think it is just something too far out of "normal" to report.

Truthfully, either these "creatures" live for 1000s of years, or no one is clever enough to find a corpse of one of them whilest hunting in the woods. Then again, who knows what really lurks deep underground.
