Details: In 1932, Cecil Mann and Frank Carr were exploring the San Pedro Mountains in Wyoming when they found an unusual mummified figure within a cave.

A year later, the mummy was sold to a used car salesman who had a side show for several years.

Then, he gave it to another man who brought it to a scientist who had x-rays done on the figure. The x-rays revealed that the remains were of a species between a mature infant or a under-sized human being. To date, no one is quite sure what the figure is, or what happened to it. In 1950, a scientist was given the mummy for study. It was last seen in 1975 and has never been re-located.
Extra Notes: This case ran on the February 2, 1994 episode.
This case was also featured on the series, Monumental Mysteries.
Results: Unsolved/Updated - On the series, "Monumental Mysteries," it was revealed that an airing of this segment forced a couple to realize they had a similar mummy in their possession that also originated from the San Pedro Mountains. An analysis of their remains showed the mummy was that of an infant dating back several thousand years that suffered from amencephaly (an enlarged brain). While the original remains have never been found, it is believed they both share the same characteristics.
