A police report about the incident read: "I was surprised by what I saw, the person appeared to be a small child, running rather erect and too quickly for a child."

Once the officer exited his car to confront the "child," it had disappeared.


The officer then searched a nearby building expecting to find a child "crying or scared" but found nothing.

Other departments including a K-9 team and drone operation also searched the area to no avail.


With police then lodging the incident as an "investigative encounter."

While many in the community were shaken up after watching the "ghost child" footage...

Their minds may now be at ease as the experts have stepped in.

On the Mentor Facebook group, the Mentor Ohio Paranormal Research Society commented: "We had a bunch of people ask us what we thought about the new video that has been released of a possible ghost in our city being spotted on a doorbell camera."

"Based from our experience, we believe that this is actually a person running, and the camera is out of focus. You also have to consider lighting and shadow effects going on. We [are] not saying that it couldn't be, we are just saying... we need to study the actual footage itself."
