Yowie seeker, 68, has something to prove

FOR cryptozoologist Rex Gilroy, 2013 could be the year of the yowie.
The Australian Yowie Research Centre director will hit Springbrook National Forrest in February determined to end his 55-year search for the elusive creature, which has become part of Australian folklore.
The 68-year-old's career in cryptozoology -- the search for animals whose existence has not been proven -- has been hampered by health issues this year which have delayed the hunt for more than six months.
However, Mr Gilroy says he is physically ready and prepared to rough it if it means proving the creature's existence.
"Next year is 2013 and I consider 13 a lucky number, so I have a good feeling about it being the one in which I will find something conclusive," he said.
