The biggest hunt for the Loch Ness monster in 50 years came to an end in Scotland on Sunday without having delivered any conclusive indication of whether the mysterious creature exists or not.
On Saturday and Sunday, hundreds of volunteers from all over the world scrutinized the water of the 56 km2 loch, which reaches a depth of 240 metres. They braved inclement weather, with showers and leaden skies over Scotland's largest lake.
Thermal scanners and hydrophones were deployed to unravel the mystery of this legendary creature, which has been mentioned since ancient times.
Some did hear strange sounds, but were unable to record them because their cameras were not plugged in, reports the BBC.
According to The Telegraph, several reports were also shared by volunteers following the operation online via webcam. But it will take some time to verify these reports.
The mystery surrounding "Nessie" remains unsolved.
