I think the simplest explanation is that the women got into a vehicle. It is important for you to recall however whether you kept your eyes on the
person the entire time. And did you actually see her disappear in front of your eyes, or did you simply look away and then look back and she was gone?
I think there is a huge difference, and that it is possible that something natural happened, but you just missed it. But if she vanished literally in
front of your eyes, then that is strange. But I don't think it is right to assume you had something so rare occur unless you actually witnessed her
vanish. Any potential explanation is more likely than simply disappearing, if it happens at all.
The second poster's story is interesting, but the whole taking the eyes off of the person causes me to think perhaps there was somewhere they could
have gotten to. But if people telling these stories are adamant that there was absolutely nowhere for the person to have gone, and they are sure that
they only looked away for a second, not giving the person enough time to get away unseen, then the only other explanation is paranormal.
My grandmother used to tell us of all the strange things that happened to her over her 80 years, and once she recounted something that happened to her
mother and her aunt (I think). This would probably have been in the 20's or 30's. To get to the house one had to pass up a long dirt road, where
they would come to a locked gate. Someone would have to get out and unlock the gate, and then they would pass through and lock it back. Well much
further up the road was another gate, at which they would do the same thing.
I don't remember the particulars, but here is what I do remember. The two women were driving an old style car and they got to the gate and one got
out an opened it. It was about that time that they noticed a man standing there, a man who asked if they needed help with something, or something like
that, I don't rightly remember. Anyway, she was unnerved because this was private property out in the middle of nowhere, and it was quite strange to
have a strange man out there, who obviously must have walked.
So she got back in the car and drove through the gate, not bothering to get out and lock it back. They drove for a little while until they approached
the next gate, and again she got out and opened it. And again, the exact same man seemed to appear out of nowhere, from off to the side of the road.
In each instance neither had noticed him as they approached. Obviously they were freaked out considerably, and there is no explanation for such a
thing that I can think of.
My grandma told this story and I said that the guy could have just jumped on the back of the vehicle or something, but I remember her telling me why
this couldn't have been possible, but I don't remember what she said. There was something about the man as well that seemed weird, but again I
don't recall what she said.
When I was little I saw a man at the foot of my grandmother's bed, which I was lying in, and I asked her who the man was and she got freaked out
since she couldn't see him. I could see him clear as day, and he ended up disappearing. Something like that would have scared the pants off me today,
but it didn't scare me then, when I was young.
