For the first time in almost 90 years no "confirmed sightings" have been made of the Loch Ness Monster, a veteran Nessie spotter has said.
Gary Campbell, who keeps a register of sightings, said no-one had come forward in 18 months to say they had seen the monster.
Bookmaker William Hill also said the three entries to its annual Nessie spotting contest could be explained.
They were images of a wave, a duck and a picture not even taken on Loch Ness.
Mr Campbell said it was the first time since 1925 that there had been no confirmed reports of the monster.
He said: "It's very upsetting news and we don't know where she's gone.
"The number of sightings has been reducing since the turn of the century but this is the first time in almost 90 years that Nessie wasn't seen at all."
