No one's saying "boo!" to this funny ghost story. And when you hear the way it ended, you'll know why.
The town of Cambridge, New York was left spooked back in March when an anonymous couple captured a mysterious image of a little girl walking alone in the forest on their trail camera.
The black and white image appeared to show the youngster's arms and legs disappearing into the background, looking like an apparition. The concerned couple contacted the local sheriff, hoping to identify the unsupervised girl's parents and make sure she was okay.
But when the photo was shared publicly, the town began suspecting that the girl was actually a ghost. Not only did townspeople start saying, "It's definitely a spirit," and "There is some creepy stuff in this town," the police also started getting a flood of calls about ghost legends.
Apparently, legend had it that a little girl had been struck and killed by a train that used to pass through that area.
However, Cambridge-Greenwich Police Chief George Bell remained skeptical. And for good reason.
A couple months later, Chief Bell received a phone call from a man named Chic Wilson, who claimed to be the grandfather of the girl captured on camera.
Sure enough, he said he and his 9-year-old granddaughter Holdan had been walking down a four-wheeler path when the photo was snapped. They eyed a camera, so they started waving at it, not realizing Holdan's image was actually taken.
But they were both stunned by the amount of attention that the picture got.
"I think it's crazy that someone thought I was a ghost and it went like all over the internet," Holdan said. "I’m just a nine-year-old girl who's not a ghost!"
Meanwhile the Cambridge Police Department said that it was happy to finally put this story to rest. Too funny!
