Hello Where is he I want to see the lantern man. I bet he is like the green lantern
Do you know what they call that man with the lantern
His name is jimmy bob
no i dont but want to know
The only thing i saw at lake pickthorne were a redneck couple banging on the hood of an old GMC
When I was traveling of a sunny clear morning in February between Searcy and Des Arc I saw a ghost. The side of the road was flooded on both sides. I saw a tall thin man with a blue shirt walked across the road in front of me. He disappeared when he got across. He had brown hair parted on the side. I had never traveled this road before that day and wondered if something happened there at some point.
Ok so I just found out we live like a hop skip and a jump from this lake. Literally less than a half mile away. Now im curious. Wanna go check it out but then again I don’t. Lol
In the 90’s my friends and I partied out there a lot. Never once did we see anything supernatural…. drunk topless redneck girls, yes…. ghosts, no.
The ghost light is seen along the railroad tracks near the lake.
Ya Holland bottoms
