The search for the Loch Ness Monster has gone on for decades with the true identity of the legendary beast as much a mystery of how it came to live in the loch. One expert though, claims it could spend most of its time hiding in a parallel universe like in the hit show Stranger Things.

The creature has captivated the imagination of the general public ever since its most famous early sighting in May 1933, when the Inverness Courier reported a local couple seeing “an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface”.

But as of yet, despite numerous theories being put forward, no one has been able to prove the monster exists.

Now, one paranormal investigator thinks he knows why there hasn’t been actual evidence found of the beast – and it involves the Netflix nostalgic hit. In Stranger Things, the gang of heroes face off against creatures from a pocket universe known as the Upside Down, and Scot Ron Halliday believes this could be a clue as to where Nessie disappears.

He said: “Scientists have suggested there could be other universes. And somehow our world interacts with these other worlds through portals.

“With the Loch Ness monster, people could be seeing a dinosaur that existed in the past. They may see something that looks solid but isn’t actually in our world. That can spread across a whole range of things, such as UFO sightings.”

Ron, 72, thinks our legend could be akin to that of the Duffer Brother and Dungeons And Dragons creatures such as the Demogorgon and Demodogs.

He added: “Some people are more psychic than others. They can pick up these experiences while others may not. It’s possible that some may walk into these portals without realising it, then they can see these things.

“They are having genuine experiences. In a way, this is speculation. But to my mind, it does provide an explanation to a whole range of paranormal phenomena.”

This theory differs from the one which resurfaced a few weeks ago.

A 2007 report gained notoriety after it suggested that the giant beast could actually just be a huge frog.

In 2005, a team from United States-based SeaTrepid Inc performed a full deep water scan of the loch, in the hopes of finding the mysterious Nessie.

But all they found was a frog – living at an astonishing 325ft deep below the water.
