The biggest search for the Loch Ness Monster it’s been decades since yesterday underway in Loch Ness, northern Scotland.

The search is the largest of its kind since the Loch Ness Research Bureau surveyed the loch for signs of the mythical monster in 1972.

The exploration involves around 2,000 people combing the lake in boats while the operation is broadcast live online.

To locate Nessie, state-of-the-art means and technologies such as drones with infrared cameras and hydrophones to detect acoustic signals underwater have been deployed.

In fact, volunteers reported that at some point strange sounds were heard but they did not manage to record them.

In 2003, the British television network BBC funded a survey of the lake using 600 sonar beams and satellite tracking.

In the documentary “Searching for the Loch Ness Monster” broadcast on BBC One, the scientists involved admitted that no sign of any significant animal had been found in the lake, proving that the Loch Ness monster was a myth.
