[T]ests at Oxford Brookes University on hairs said to be from a Yeti in India have failed to link the strands with any known species.
Ape expert Ian Redmond, who is leading the research, said: "The hairs are the most positive evidence yet that a Yeti might possibly exist.
"It may be that the region this animal is inhabiting is remote enough for it to remain undiscovered so far."
The two hairs - 33mm and 44mm long - were found in a jungle in the mountains of north-east India five years ago.
