An avid nature photographer, Troy Vance, 15, told Caters News Agency he was "really creeped out" after zooming in on the picture.
“I decided to take a picture of the truck with the sunrise in the background as I thought it looked really nice," Vance said. “I didn’t notice anything at the time, but after I uploaded it to Facebook I had people commenting on it, asking me if I was sitting in the front seat."
So Vance took a closer look at the image.
"Then I zoomed ... in and saw the ghostly face in the windshield," he said. "... My heart just stopped. I was in complete shock."
He added: “There was no one in the truck. I just can’t explain it."
Vance said he believes the image shows a boy who drowned in the nearby lake in the early 1900s.
“It looks like a little boy is sitting in the front seat. It’s so freaky. ... I think it could be him."
