I am writing this just half an hour before the event occurred, thus it is still very fresh in my memory. For the record, I never really believed in most disappearances, not until now.
Near a library that I often visit there's a bike trail nearby, or what used to be one. Now who ever owns the land has decided that no one should trespass. However, kids still try to ride their bikes and walk it.
I've taken one or two walks on the trail and found nothing odd. The trail has been open for the past 2 or 3 years at the least, and nothing has really changed in the area.
This is where things start to venture into the paranormal though. Today I had decided to take my dogs outside in the backyard of my house. One of them (A Westland Terrier) acted like it was seeing something as it was just standing there, looking at a fence with nothing in site.
Normally he'll run over to something and sniff it or bark if he sees something. Whatever this was, he couldn't turn away from it or even react, and I could not see it. I was a bit curious, but ended up brushing it off. Interestingly, where he was looking was near a cat statue which we had placed over the remains of a cat that we used to have.
Later on that day, I was taking my usual stroll to the library and saw a kid that was perhaps in his early teens. He had black hair, tan skin, a black shirt, and jeans. I saw him run across the road and just kept my way to the library. He walked by the old trail and kept going down the road casually, glimpsing back at me.
He then stopped, looked around, and then as a car went by me he vanished. If he went into the woods I would've seen the leaves move a tad or a bit of his head since the opening is a bit wide, and you can't run in since the trail immediately dives once you leave the sidewalk. I looked and looked and saw nothing.
I don't know what just happened. I do know that area is just a bit odd. I remember walking by once and seeing a young blonde (probably 4 or 5) who just out of nowhere called me over, just to ask "Where are you going?" After I said, "I'm going home" she said "Okay, goodbye".
