I acquired an account about an obvious kidnapping of two younger boys by two different ‘black-eyed boys’ in Elk County, Pennsylvania within the late 1970’s. Very creepy.

I just lately got here throughout the next account in considered one of my databases. I do not consider that I’ve posted it earlier than:

“It was the late 1970’s and my sons have been aged 9 and seven. I used to be a single mom and labored two jobs. We lived in an previous farmhouse on the outskirts of a small city in Elk County, Pennsylvania. We had simply moved in that summer time and didn’t know our neighbors very properly. The primary motive I picked this home was for the massive yard. My sons began spending all of their free time on the market. I usually solely noticed my sons for a second within the morning, and at evening to tuck them in. They seemed out for one another so much.

Someday I got here dwelling a bit late and my sons have been nonetheless awake studying comics, which wasn’t uncommon. What was uncommon was how excited they have been, they’d a narrative to inform me. They advised me about their new pals, two boys about their age that lived subsequent door. I used to be fairly upset, they knew to not speak to strangers. My sons advised me they needed to return inside the home, however my older son wouldn’t allow them to. I advised them they weren’t allowed outdoors till I had met their new pals, and put them to mattress.

The weekend got here, and so far as I do know my sons hadn’t gone outback. We went to the neighbor’s home and launched ourselves, however they didn’t have any youngsters although. I assumed that my boys had combined up what route their pals got here from, and went to our reverse neighbor’s home. That they had youngsters, however they have been women a bit youthful than my sons. Perhaps they stay additional down the road, I assumed.

I figured this was pretty much as good a time as any to satisfy the neighbors, and we labored our approach down the road. There have been some previous individuals, younger {couples}, and two households with a number of youngsters every. Despite the fact that we had met about 5 boys my sons’ age, they hadn’t met earlier than. They hit it off although, and my sons stayed for the remainder of the day and performed of their yard. I began my approach again down the road to get dinner began.

After I obtained again dwelling I felt like one thing was off. I wasn’t used to being dwelling alone, as a result of my sons have been at all times dwelling. I began dinner, however nonetheless felt bizarre, a little bit scared. One thing caught my eye out within the darkening yard. My sons have been out within the again yard on the swings, however I nonetheless felt frightened. I went on the market to inform them they weren’t allowed outdoors, though I had lifted the grounding earlier that day. Then I spotted they weren’t my sons.

The 2 boys obtained off the swings and confronted me, and I instantly observed one thing terrible. Their eyes have been pure black, they appeared to haven’t any soul, no humanity. I stood on the again patio paralyzed, simply staring into their eyes. The boys have been a few hundred toes from me and began strolling in the direction of me. Not a muscle in me would transfer, I couldn’t break eye contact with them. “Excuse me, miss. Can we use your telephone?” the older one requested me. I screamed, “No!” and managed to run in the home.

The boys have been on the again door knocking slowly and rhythmically. I used to be terrified. Then I noticed my sons strolling up the facet of the home, in the direction of the boys with black eyes. I ran to the window on the facet of the home and advised my sons to run, they laughed and continued across the nook. My youthful son noticed the 2 boys and greeted them, the boys with black eyes turned and stated “Inform her to allow us to in.” My son yelled for me to open the door. I used to be simply sobbing and didn’t know what to do.

My sons appeared utterly unfazed by the boys with black eyes. I screamed for the boys with black eyes to depart us alone. Simply as I did this, there was a knock on the entrance door. I rushed to the entryway, foolishly leaving my sons alone. I opened the door and there was a police officer. He was with the dad and mom of the household whose home my sons had performed at earlier. The spouse was crying and the police officer advised me that my sons had gone lacking. I advised him there have been intruders within the yard.

I rapidly led the police officer to the again door, however the two monsters and my sons have been no the place to be seen. The glass within the door broke from how onerous I slammed it open. I ran out into the yard sobbing. Then I heard my youthful son’s voice, he screamed for me from the again of the yard, I noticed him for a second by the fence. There was a gap within the fence and one of many boys with black eyes pulled my son via it. The police officer shouted for them to cease, as he rushed to the fence.

It was too late, my boys have been gone. That was the final time I ever noticed my sons.”

This assertion was included with the account:

“This story was advised to me by a neighbor, who wouldn’t inform me if it occurred to her or not. She can be about the proper age for it although. She lived alone, and had no youngsters. I advised the story from a primary particular person perspective so I may write it higher.” M

NOTE: I seemed into this account on the time I acquired it in 2009. My notes state that there have been 2 obvious kidnappings of younger youngsters within the Ridgway, PA space throughout 1978-79. I’ll comply with as much as see if there have been any conclusions to those studies. Any info can be appreciated. Lon
