White Gliding Ghostliness

Multiple attempts by at least two different drivers to lure children into white vans in the Pittsburgh area - six in the past three weeks. Police urge everyone to “stay alert”, but refused to comment when asked if they believe, as some do, that falling into a reverie causes the white vans to appear.

In Sydney, Australia, a man tried to “entice” a 12 year old girl into his white van. Earlier in the day in another part of town, a white van stalked a 15 year old boy on the way to school. Like a dreamer awoken from a nightmare the youth vividly recounted the terror he felt as the white van pursued him, but was “unable to provide a description of any occupants of the vehicle”. Police “don’t believe any of the incidents are linked”, despite the glaringly obvious white van connection.

A man in a white van was observed “fighting with himself” in Grass Valley, California.

A New Zealand woman was “grabbed on Te Ngae Rd and dragged into the back of a [white] car”. The woman escaped, and, inexplicably, a passing white van picked her up and took her to a police station. Confused police wish to speak with the white van’s driver, who like his evil counterparts was unidentified. 
An expert who monitors white van activity says we can expect it to “crescendo around Halloween”, whatever that means.


  1. Aren't the drivers more important than the white vans? They should do a psychological profile of the kind of creep who buys a white van.

  2. People who buy white vans are desperate to own businesses which require them to make deliveries of small packages. They lack imagination, and ambition, and can't think of such a business. So they buy the while van first and drive it around, now and then stopping on some sidestreet where they get out and look at their van, to see if some company name has magically appeared on the side. When that doesn't work, they sometimes go to picking up children and driving them around to teach them a lesson, and scare them so they won't want to grow up at all. They let the children out a few miles from home, these creeps who own white vans, and that's only part of the story.

  3. Eh: Little is known about the drivers. In many instances, such as the Sydney case above, the targets can barely provide a description.

    Lloyd: As always, your theory is interesting. If this is non-paranormal phenomena, I wonder if it isn't the other way around: after failing at luring children, white van drivers abandon their dreams of kidnapping and turn to practical business endeavors.
