Lost Legacies, Lost Evidence: Herman Regusters

I want to start an effort in 2006 to rediscover some missing people and their lost cryptozoological evidence, gone for years.

Let’s begin with the well-known Californian cryptozoologist Herman Regusters.

In the fall of 1981, Herman Regusters and his wife led a team into Lake Tele, Congo, in search of Mokele-mbembe. (Even though they might be undiscovered aquatic mammals, the cryptids called Mokele-mbembe are often discussed, first and foremost, in hauntingly romantic ways as perhaps surviving "Living Dinosaurs" in deepest Africa, in a somewhat Victorian fashion.) The Regusters returned with droppings, footprint casts, and sound recordings unlike any animal known to the Congo Basin area. They also reportedly videotaped a living Mokele-mbembe.

Do you have any information on Herman Regusters or his wife’s whereabouts? Their email contacts? Where the physical evidence from their expedition is housed? Where copies of their audio and visual recordings can be found?

Your help in this cryptozoological mystery is requested. Leave information in the comments below. Thank you.

And if you have any suggestions for future "Lost Legacies" that are crying out to be tracked down, let us know.

    Thanks to Professor Hex and Quazie for sending along this information. It is sad news indeed.

    Unfortunately, we still don’t know what happened to the physical, audio, and visual evidence from the expedition.
