Nessie: A Frank Searle Q&A

Posted by: Nick Redfern on May 1st, 2012

Over at the website of England’s Crawley Observer newspaper, you can find a new article/profile on the Loch Ness Monster from Scottish researcher and author Malcolm Robinson. In the article, Robinson outlines the history and theories relative to what the creatures of Loch Ness, Scotland may or may not be.

But, what I found particularly intriguing is that Robinson includes at the end of the article something I had not seen before, namely, an interview he conducted years ago with one of the most infamous characters in Loch Ness Monster research and writing: Frank Searle. If you don’t know who Searle was, and why he became so controversial in cryptozoological circles, well, you can find out right here.

And, to read Malcolm Robinson’s article in-full, here’s the link.

    Let me mention that on June 10, 2008, I posted some notes at Cryptomundo on Seeking Searle: Nessie Hunter.


    Frank Searle and Lieve Peten

    Didn’t Frank Searle also have something to do with the Morgawr sightings in Cornwall in the 1970s or am I mistaken?

  3. silverity responds:

    Morgawr was Tony “Doc” Shiels who also has a dubious reputation amongst many.

  4. springheeledjack responds:

    That’s cool. Frank Searle was spotty at best as an “authority” on Nessie, but he was definitely a name that will go down in history with the place and the critter.

    I guess I should have figured there were such interviews, but it’s great to see something come from the past!

    Thanks Nick!!!

  5. Kopite responds:

    Thanks silverity.

    I was getting my Searles and Shiels mixed up. I appreciate the clarification.
