Is the Yeti really out there?

Last night when watching Friday Night with Jonathan Ross I was surprised when one of his guests, Sir David Attenborough, made a comment that there was "very convincing" evidence that Yetis exist. He went on to say that "I'm baffled by the Abominable Snowman - very convincing footprints have been found at 19,000ft. No-one does that for a joke. I think it's unanswered."

One of the areas where it is believed Yetis might live is in the remote and heavily forested Makalu - Barun National Park in eastern Nepal. I am visiting this region in a few weeks time while trekking into Makalu Base Camp so will keep a look out just in case!
