One day while playing with my cat outdoors it simply vanished before my eyes never to be seen or heard from again.
I was living in Taos Canyon at the time and it was truly the most remarkable unexplained thing that has ever happened to me.
My Mom was sitting on the porch watching as I chased my then 5 year old cat around the front yard where there was a huge fallen tree limb. Around the giant log we went again and again, just having a good time until my cat sprang up and over the stump, and simply vanished.
My Mom thought I was pulling her leg at first but when I got really upset and freaked out, she came to help me look. You could see all the way around it, under it, but we never saw our beloved pet again.

This didn't happen to me but it did to my brother. He used to party a lot as a younger man (he's in his 40s now) and in some cases he used to walk home either from the bus stop or from the party itself. We lived in a very rural area at the time and he recalls walking home one late night where he had to cut through a narrow path surrounded by tall hedges and thick vegetation. He said as he turned into a sharp corner of the path in front of him, he saw a very tall and dark object standing right in the middle of the path. To him it appeared to be a gigantic man-like object of impossible height (10-15 feet maybe) and it was just standing still in the path.
He said he instinctively jumped into the bushes and ran through the heavy bushes away from the path but towards a stream. He recalled running through branches, crashing through bushes as he frantically raced away from the monstrosity he saw. After running for a while, he broke through the bushes and came upon a different road where somehow he ran into an older neighbor who was out having a midnight stroll. The neighbor tried to calm him down and asked him why he was coming out of the bushes breathless and scared. He tried to explain what he saw and all the neighbor told him was "he shouldn't be out that late by himself and to be more careful in the future".
They walked for a while until my brother got near his house and he ran towards it. Upon entering the house, he quickly told my mother what happened and they both recounted hearing banging noises on the side of the house as if something was hitting the outside walls with an unknown force.
Needless to say, that was the last time he was out late by himself again.

I have a story about the time I was probably the most scared I've ever been in my life and then ended up feeling the most stupid I've ever felt in my life. I'll tell it but I'm not quite sure it will come off as scary or as funny as it really was. It's probably one of those things you had to be there for, but I was absolutely TERRIFIED!!!

Many years ago when I near 10 or so, my sister kept complaining of hearing a typewriter going off at night in the attic. No one believed her. Yet there was an old fashioned typewriter in the attic in a hard blue cloth case. Never believed her.
One night, the family went on a stroll. Somehow I was in trouble or grounded and wasn't allowed to attend. I was all alone in a house that was built at the turn of the century. The lights were on, but I was alone. I tried to settle in the old scary house and watch t.v.
As soon as I sat down, I heard the typewriter going off! Not .0000001 seconds after hearing that was I sitting on the base of the porch steps waiting for the return of my family. In the dark.
Freaked me out!
That old house had more freaky things going on than any house on a modern day t.v. show. It had all the bells and whistles. Gas stove turning off and on. Water going off and on. Lights......you name it. That house still freaks me out in my dreams.
