Martin Segura Soberanis 2010 Sighting in ManuMartin Segura Soberanis worked in the tourist industry in the region and had befriended an American man who visited the area every year. In 2010 he decided to take the man to his local town of Manu to do a little bit of sightseeing and experience the real local culture close up. All went well until they visited a local farm area where Soberanis was a little tired and let his friend explore the area alone. Soon he started to worry and began a search that lasted nearly an hour. When he found his friend he looked in shock, his face a mask of fear. He told Soberanis that he’d encountered two small humanoids that were about one foot tall. He initially thought they were children’s dolls until they looked at him and began running away. Next he was targeted by small stones that were thrown with great accuracy but without the intent to seriously injure. He then walked back towards the main house and was found by Soberanis.
