"The person is about one foot tall, and is laying down, pinkish upper chest, neck and face, radish hair, wearing a dark suit, but has a grey object over one shoulder, it looks like a backpack of some sort.
"There are even footprints behind the person leading up to the location they chose to lay down at."
