SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco man who said he witnessed a ghostly apparition at San Francisco International Airport says he saw a woman, dressed in a purple cloak and holding a baby, about 10 feet (3 meters) away, and another woman about a quarter of a mile away.
The woman had a large silver bow and arrow in her hand, and was wearing a red cloak.
A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration said the plane was in service at the time of the sighting.
Police said they had no information about the identity of the woman and the baby.
An AP news team has traveled to San Francisco to cover the ongoing search for a second plane.
Ghost sightings are rare and often involve people seeing the apparition in the form of a ghost, or a ghost figure, a ghost hunter says.
The sighting is reported by a person who believes they have seen something that could be a ghost or has paranormal experiences.
In some cases, witnesses are reluctant to speak publicly, saying they may scare the person.
The San Francisco Airport Authority has been on heightened alert since the Feb. 2 death of a 49-year-old woman, Amy Smith, who was found dead inside her San Francisco apartment.
Smith, a mother of two and a former nurse, had a history of mental illness and drug abuse, police said.
