Footage taken in Westminster by Ugandan tourists appears to show a mostly transparent spectre floating past windows inside the Houses of Parliament.
Experts have said it is the most convincing evidence yet that the semi-mythical figurehead of the Labour Party exists.
Haberdasher Simon Collins has been a believer in the Miliband Phenonmena (MP) since the shadowy figure allegedly opened a Boots in Latham Town Center. He says it is easy to recognise the true Miliband by its distinctive nasal moan and almost complete lack of substance.
'He's like diet-mist, instantly forgettable.
You've probably seen him tens of times in your life, but it just wouldn't register - such is the elusiveness of the Miliband Phenomena.'
Scientists at CERN are hoping to adopt neutrino detecting technology to join the hunt for the MP.
Professor Bryn Cooks explains it thus:
'The thing about neutrinos is, they're very tricky to detect as they don't interact with normal matter.'
The parallels with Miliband are obvious.
'Our first aim is to experimentally detect the existence of the proposed MP, and if successful study it's properties (assuming it has any).'
With extensive research and funding, scientists believe it might one day be possible to extract a coherent policy from Miliband.
'But we're talking in the realms of science-fiction here...'
|Miliband or fake?|
'Currently the technology for such a bold undertaking just doesn't exist, nor is it likely to in our lifetime.'
Until then, grainy footage and unverified recordings of heavy nasal breathing are all we have to go on in the hunt for Ed Miliband.
False alarms are common.
In late 2011, spiritualist and chicken factory labourer Myra Dodridge believed she had made contact with Miliband during a midnight seance at a guest house in Penzance. It emerged what she had thought to be the ghostly drone of Miliband was in fact a neighbour doing some late night vacuuming after treading on a pipe of pringles.
Her claims to have exorcised the restless spirit of Rod Hull from a grand piano in Leeds were also widely denounced as fantasy.
