Sightings of the ghoul around the marshy countryside of Cannock Chase, a notorious area for paranormal sightings in Staffordshire, were first recorded in the 1980s.
But after a recent encounter, it seems the haunting spirit has returned.
Brickley, a ghost expert who runs the blog Paranormalcannock, is
looking into the claims after a woman wrote to him telling of her
experience with the girl.
The woman told him: "Around 2 months ago
my daughter and I were walking through Birches Valley (an area well
known for it's spectral sightings) when we heard the screams of a young
"I couldn't tell if it was a boy or a girl, but they
definitely seemed in distress and sounded very close to us, so we
instantly started running towards the noise.
"We couldn't find the
child anywhere and so stopped to catch our breath, that's when I turned
round and saw a girl stood behind me, no more than 10 years old, with
her hands over her eyes.
"She then put her arms down by her side
and opened her eyes, which is when I saw they were completely black, no
iris, no white, nothing.
"I jumped back and grabbed my daughter, when I looked again, the child was gone."
