Real Ghost Stories

Hispanic Woman And Lost Child


A friend and I decided that we wanted to go fishing for catfish along the Mississippi River but we went late night. We thought that the best time to get there would be after 9pm and my youngest brother had apparently decided to tag along. The location was along the Mississippi river in South St. Paul, where the dog park is now along Concord St which is West of Pig's Eye Lake.

Before they built the dog park, it used to be a wooded area with a long walking trail (there is pavement) and we picked a spot where you had to stray off the walking trail and hike through the woods and we probably walked a good distance to the river shore. Anyways, it got late, about 10-1030pm and we decided to build a small fire and resumed fishing. Around 11pm, a Hispanic lady walked out of the woods and asked us if we had seen a little child wandering in the forest. She was probably late 20's or early 30's and we didn't think about it at the time but we thought nothing of it and shrugged it off and resumed fishing. After about 20 minutes, my buddy was facing the woods and was hooking up a night crawler and I was facing the river fishing and suddenly he lost balance because he was jumping backwards from whatever jumped out at him and I managed to prevent us from falling into the river and he stammered for us to put out the fire, ditch the fish we caught (they were still alive) and pack and leave right away.

My Little brother who was surprised we wanted to pack and leave didn't say anything and as we got back to the trail, we didn't dare turn on our flashlights since we believed that ghost can follow the lights and when we got to the car finally, we talked a little about it and apparently, my friend said that there was this big tall white thing that had a humanoid figure jump out of the woods at him when he was hooking up the night crawlers and then it just occurred to us that it was odd that the lady would find us in the woods and ask about a lost child. Then that's when my little brother said "what lady? I didn't hear any lady talking to us? That was really odd because he was standing no more then 3-4 feet from us (it was a small clearing along the river). Obviously we never went back there again.

It's possible that they're the same since it really wasn't more then oh... 10-15 minuets apart? But considering the lady wasn't aggressive it may not be.

No kidding huh... I never knew that, I'll have to dig deeper into that as it's peaked my interest now.
