After a tip from a tour boat operator that claimed to have found "Nessie's Trench," the researchers decided to investigate and saw something on sonar imaging that was surprisingly monster-shaped!
And it solved a mystery alright!
It turned out to be a 30-foot-prop made for the 1970 movie The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes 180 meters down at the bed of the lake!
The prop sunk during the production back in 1969, and the Christopher Lee and Robert Stephens film had to create a new fake Nessie (seen below) to continue production.
Apparently the search was pretty detailed as the drone was equipped with sonar-imaging technology that is generally used for downed aircrafts and ships — but unfortunately it never did find the trench the tour boat operator spoke about.
Adrian Shine, the lead researcher at the Loch Ness Project, said of the discovery:
"Nessie's Lair didn't exist. The Loch Ness Monster, kind of, did."
Mr. Shine went on to reveal that he was disappointed by the finding saying:
"It's because we want it to be true. All of us, even skeptics like me, I'm still trying to find out what people are seeing."
The good news for the Scottish tourist attraction is that it's still worth quite a bit of money — $85 million to the Scottish economy to be exact. That's a lot of coin for a creature we're not sure exists!
The YouTube celebrity posted a lengthy, emotional video revealing that she and her husband are ending their marriage.
While sharing the sad news with her over 4 million subscribers, Colleen immediately broke down, saying:
"I am dreading making this video. I'm just going to say it. Joshua and I are getting a divorce. Man, that sucks to say out loud."
But, Miz Ballinger stressed that her former flame didn't wrong her in any way, adding:
"I want to start off by saying Joshua is a wonderful man, and I am so in love with him. This has nothing to do with he's a bad person, or he did something horrible to me, or anything like that. He's a good person and I love him."
Instead, the singer clarified that they ultimately weren't a good fit together:
