>Phantom Hitch-Hikers<

Roy Fulton had finished his darts game at a pub in Leighton Buzzard, so he decided to brave the dark, foggy October evening and head for home. The 26-year-old carpet fitter was driving down a desolate road near Stanbridge, Bedfordshire when his headlights caught the form of a pale, young man who was trying to hail a lift.

After the car stopped, the hitch-hicker opened the door and climbed into the back seat without saying a word. He simply pointed in the direction of nearby Dunstable. After a few minutes of silence, Roy decided to break the ice and offer his passenger a cigarette. But when he glanced over his shoulder - the seat was empty. His passenger had simply vanished into thin air!

'I braked, and had a quick look in the back to see if he was there,' Roy said later. 'He wasn't - so I just gripped the steering wheel and drove like hell.' Not even Dunstable police officers could decide what Roy had seen on that night in 1979. But they noted that the driver was sober when he made the report. If he had been hallucinating, then it clearly had nothing to do with alcohol.

Pretty brunette hitch-hiker Maria Roux is most often spotted on the Barandas-Willowmore Road just outside the town of Uniondale, South Africa. But there is just one problem-tragically, she died there in a car accident in April 1968.
South African Army corporal Dawie van Jaarsveld stopped for the woman hitch-hiker while riding his motorcycle one evening in March 1978. Ten miles down the road he felt a bump. Glancing back, he noticed that his pillion passenger had vanished. Terrified that she had fallen off the back of his bike, van Jaarsveld retraced his route. All he found was the helmet he had loaned her, strapped to his luggage rack!
Anton Le Grange also met the hitch-hiker in the same spot two years earlier. The dark-haired girl asked for a lift. Starting his car, Le Grange realized he did not know the street she wanted. He turned to ask her, but she had disappeared.
Le Grange reported the event to the Uniondale police. He and an officer returned to the spot where the girl had disappeared. There, the policeman saw the car door open as though someone was getting out. At the same time, Le Grange heard a chilling scream.
Both Anton Le Grange and Dawie van Jaarsveld identified their passenger as Maria Roux!
