1 Howmet Dr. Hampton, Va, 23661. Back in the early 1980’s I was a security guard working through the Wackenhut Corp, at the Howmet plant in Hampton, Virginia. One hot and misty night I saw what I thought was a young woman wearing a gossamer gown wandering in front of the plant. I grew somewhat suspicious of this person, after all who wanders the streets wearing only a night gown? I left the guard house to see if this woman needed some assistance. She seemed as real as any other person on the planet, but she completely ignored my calling out to her. I got within arms length of her and I reached out to touch her and get her attention. At this point, the woman simply vanishes. I was both shocked and horrified by this event. For an hour I debated on whether or not I should make an entry into the security log, but ultimately I elected not to do it, However, when my superior arrived in the morning, I told her about the incident. She just laughed at me and said that it was just wishful thinking on my part. From that point to now, I have never told anyone else this story.
