  • There have been many reported sightings since the 1950s, and in 1995 in Johor large tracks with four toes were reported. In November 2005 a much publicised sighting occurred when three workers clearing ground for a pond saw a Mawa family of two adults and a child walking near the Kincin River. Later large humanoid footprints were found, including one 18 in (46 cm) long. A photograph of a fresh footprint in tar, attributed to the Mawas, was printed in Malaysian newspapers in January 2006. A government team has been searching for more evidence of the Mawas. In late January 2006, the authorities in Johor announced an official expedition to prove the creature's existence, making it the first country to have an official hunt for a mystery hominid. A news story on Cryptomundo.com said that an Orang Mawas was captured in Johor on the expedition of Johor, as reported on April 19, 2006 in the Berita Harian, but an official report released by Bernama denied it. In Sumatra, mawas (sometimes maias) is common name for the orangutan. (en)
