St. Louis (KSDK) -- Wednesday marks an odd date in Missouri history. 40 years ago, hundreds began flocking to the Show Me State for what became known as MOMO Mania.
July 11, 1972, someone said they saw a Bigfoot-like creature near Louisana, Missouri. The creature was dubbed MOMO, short for Missouri Monster.
People spent about two weeks looking for more signs of MOMO but no substantial evidence was ever found.
