The following report was sent into our website by Melodie on April 14, 2009:
“My parents owned a business in town and we lived on top and in back of it. It was quite a big place. The hallway upstairs was more like a big sitting room. The stairs went up then turned to the right and there were railings all around them. There was a window on top of the stairs so you could see in the driveway.
My parents after they closed their store for the evening would go out for a coffee, this night was not any different. I was 16 years old at the time and I was talking on the phone to my boyfriend. The phone was on a long extension cord which was hooked up in the hallway and I had it running into my room so I could have privacy. I was in mid conversation with my boyfriend when someone or something tugged on the cord that was lying under my closed door. I told whoever it was ( I thought it was my father playing a joke on me) to knock it off. I then yelled a bit more angry when the cord was tugged yet again because it was actually ripping the phone away from my ear. Right after that I yelled and the phone cord was pulled so hard that the whole phone flew out of my hand and hit the bedroom door.
At this point I couldn’t believe my dad did that so I flung open the door and said “hey!” Well no one was there. I then told my boyfriend to hold a minute and went to the window above the stairs. The house was quiet, no lights were on downstairs and when I looked out the window my parents’ car was gone! I ran back to my room, jumped on my bed and told my boyfriend what happened. I got off the phone with him, waited until my parents came home and asked them when they left for coffee. They said right after the store closed, about 5 after 9. I then realized that of course I just had some kind of experience being as when this all occured there was no car in the driveway and well the time was 9:30 when I had my “visitor”.”
