New Confirmed Sighting!Posted: June 12, 2012
YAY!! We received another sighting yesterday!!!!!! I do get more calls then I post, and I save the best for all of you! This sighting was from 2 witnesses both seeing Andy clearly, he was sitting and observing, then turned around and headed back into the woods. This was within one of his 2 known “hot zones”, it was a little further away from the sighting last week but all in his same favorite areas… We are currently looking for his possible paths and routes from one area to the other. Also still researching possible repeat appearances, or feeding areas.
We still have feeding stations and cameras, as well as some traps, most importantly right now we need to try to encourage Andy to develop a pattern we can monitor and hopefully be able to start to anticipate his arrival! Some very special Andy volunteers have created and printed Andy info sheets for the residents currently in his hot zone areas. This explains in greater detail why it is so important to keep eyes and ears peeled, and also explains that we have CONFIRMED his presence with questions, a photo line up i.d. card, and of course with the help of the most talented team of scent trained dogs!! Also we have specially designed posters for our cars so we can be driving billboards! We have included his Facebook page on the posters because I feel it is so beneficial for local residents to be able to keep up with his story and get up to date progress reports, to keep the awareness that Andy is still there!! The neighborhood has been so very supportive and helpful and for this I am so grateful as I am completely relying upon their phone calls to be able to continue to move forward in the way that we have been.
I am sure it feels to all of you like a lifetime between sighting updates, sometimes it feels like that to me as well, but please know that sooo much team Andy work is going on between the excitement of our sighting phone calls. It is because of all this Team Andy work that I have been blessed to get as many calls as I have gotten, in fact the last 2 sightings had only been reported because of 2 very dedicated Andy supporters, they happened to be in the right places at the right times and collected info and called me to report it!
What a phenomenal group of people we have, both on the ground and online. Your help and support is something I could not go on without, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
xoxo Jordina, Michael, Hallie, Taz, and I am certain Andy is sending his love :)
