Scientists from Russia, U.S., Canada, Sweden, Estonia, Mongolia and China were reportedly invited at a conference later this week to search for the sets of evidence of the Yeti “The Abominable Snowman” in the Kemerovo region of Siberia.

According to several international reports on Tuesday, October 04, 2011, scientists are planning to have an expedition to find the Siberian Yeti.

Although reported sightings have been tripled over the past 20 years, researchers plan to prove its existence.

According to history, the Yeti or Abominable Snowman is an ape-like cryptid that inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, India and Tibet. Some thought of it to be the eastern manifestation of the same archetypal legend as Bigfoot of North America.

Meanwhile, scientists estimate that there is an existing population of at least several dozen of Yeti in Kemerovo and Altai region, reports said.

It is being believed that some of the proofs of its existence were basic twig huts, twisted branches and footprints of up to 35 centimeters which had been found in the area.

Apparently, this upcoming Yeti search was said to be the first expedition of its kind since 1958.

“When Homo sapiens started populating the world, it viciously exterminated its closest relative in the hominid family, Homo Neanderthalensis. Some of the Neanderthals, however, may have survived to this day in some mountainous wooded habitats that are more or less off limits to their arch foes,” Igor Burtsev, head of the Moscow-based International Center of Hominology was quoted as saying.
