The state of New Mexico is rife with paranormal activity. From Aliens to Ghosts, everyone has a story. But, some people are skeptical about what they can’t see.

“I would have to see it to believe it,” said Jacob Chavez.

Chavez is talking about Bigfoot. Some say he is out there, watching from behind tree branches.

“I haven't seen anything.” He stopped and quickly corrected himself, “Uh... I have seen something go through the brush one time and um we didn't know what it was.”

After the Animal Planet show 'Finding Bigfoot' investigated property on the San Juan River, Chavez, invited KOB Eyewitness News Four to come search the property for Bigfoot.

He says that the San Juan River valley and Four Corners in general is a hotbed of alleged Bigfoot sightings. While this expedition was a bust, there are plenty of stories about the beast from farmers and ranchers in the area.

While Chavez was tight lipped about what the TV crew did or did not find.

“You are just going to have to watch Sunday night and see what happens.”

He says don’t be surprised if you are fishing along the San Juan River and hear something, he welcomes believers and non-believers alike.

“Come on down here and enjoy the day and see what you find, if its birds or wild life or big foot, or whatever you are looking for… We have it here.”

Finding Bigfoot will air a 2 hour special on Sunday night on Animal Planet.
