On January 12, 2013, evidence of the orang pendek was discovered by two men from Pauh Tinggi village. While the creature itself was not seen, a line of footprints were discovered, and one was cast. This was the first of many casts obtained by the Orang Pendek Project, a private research effort led by Cliff Barackman.
There is a strong indication of mid-foot flexibility in this cast. Directly in front of where the hallux joins the foot is a slightly raised mound in front of where the base of the metatarsals would presumably meet the cuneiform and cuboid bones. Having no arch, there would be some expectation that such a feature might be found in footprints of an ape like the orang pendek.
