The team returns from their hunt with “mysterious evidence of non-human primate presence in the Appalachian mountains” of Kentucky as per Discovery.

According to one of the show’s cast members Dr Mayor: “This scientific expedition may have finally taken one of the world’s greatest mysteries out of the pages of legend and lore and into reality“.
