Hey…Where'd She Go?

While researching for the forum I came across a group of Classic Urban Legends Heres one of them.

Hey…Where'd She Go?


A man was driving home from a country-club dance late one Saturday
night. Out of the corner of his eye appeared a lovely young girl,
dressed in the sheerest of evening gowns, beckoning him for a lift. He
jammed on his brakes, and motioned her to climb into the back seat of
his sedan. "All cluttered up with golf clubs and bags up here in
front," he explained. "But what on earth is a youngster like you doing
out here all alone at this time of night?"
"It's too long a story to tell you now," said the girl. Her voice was
sweet and somewhat shrill -- like the tinkling of sleigh bells.
"Please, please take me home. My car broke down a few miles back and I
have been trying to get help for the longest time. I live up the road
about 5 miles. I do hope it's not too far out of your way."
He drove rapidly to her destination, and as he pulled up before the
house, he said, "Here we are," and turned around. The back seat was
empty.
"What the devil?" he muttered to himself. The girl couldn't possibly
have fallen from the car. Nor could she simply have vanished. He rang
insistently on the house bell, confused as he had never been before. At
long last the door opened. A gray-haired, very tired-looking man peered
out at him. "I can't tell you what an amazing thing has happened,"
began the doctor. "A young girl gave me this address a while back. I
drove her here and . . ."
"Yes, yes, I know," said the man wearily. "This has happened several
other Saturday evenings in the past month. That young girl, sir, was my
daughter. She was killed in a car accident in the spot where you picked
her up two years ago.


Variations:


  • Sometimes the ghost leaves a book or scarf in the car,
    which the bereaved parents then identify as belonging to their lost
    daughter. Sometimes the driver spies the hitchhiker's photograph on the
    family piano, wearing the
    party dress in which she died (and which she was wearing when he picked her up).
  • In versions where the hitchhiker disappears when the
    vehicle drives past a graveyard, the driver discovers the coat he lent
    his passenger draped over the tombstone of a girl who'd died in a car
    accident a few years earlier.
  • One submission described what happens the next day:

After he got home he remembered that Lavender had borrowed his coat.
The next day he went to her house and knocked on the door. An old woman
answered and he asked her if Lavender Blue was at home. He went on to
explain that she had borrowed his coat and he came to get it back and
to talk to her if she was there.
The woman had a sad look and asked him if this was some kind of joke.
He insisted that it was no joke. She informed him that Lavender Blue
had died 5 years before after she had been out on a date. Her date left
her in the middle of no-where and she was hit by a truck while walking
home on a dark road.
Tom looked so confused when she told him this story that she told him
that she would show him Lavender’s grave, as she was buried in their
back yard. They walked around the house and in the back corner of the
large property there was a small cemetery and in the center was
Lavender’s tombstone. Both the woman and Tom were surprised to find
Tom’s coat folded neatly laying on the grave.

Me and my dad use to have fights about this type- is it the Vanishing Hitchhiker or lady in white.

Yeah, every city or town seems to have one of these stories attached to it. I'd love to hear how they get started.
