Charlie Sheen is continuing his obsession with hunting down mythical beasts – he traveled to Alaska in search of a shape-shifting otter.

The former Two and a Half Men star flew to the Scottish Highlands last month in a failed bid to spot the legendary Loch Ness Monster.

Now he is extending his mission into the unknown by trying to track down a Kushtaka in the North American wilderness.

Sheen and a group of pals flew to Sitka, Alaska last week in a private jet but failed to catch a glimpse of the bizarre-sounding creature.

He tells TMZ.com, “(The Kushtaka is) a shape-shifting trickster who is half man, half otter. It lures one away from the campsite with the mimicked sounds of a crying baby, then kills you, takes on your form, and returns to the scene for more suckers or prey… It obviously knew our group was far too skilled to be snowed in this fashion so it stayed hidden like a sissy.”
