Reddit users have been left terrified after eagle-eyed users spotted what looks like a ghostlike figure hiding in the background of a holiday photo.

When user SlicedUpBeef started posting photos of a trip she took to Dundas Peak in Ontario, Canada, she was shocked to discover the ghastly figure that had appeared in the background of the photo featuring her friend's cousin.

Writing on Reddit the man in the photo said: “Way below the edge of the trail, where the slope is too steep to stand on, there appears to be a thin person standing unnaturally straight with no visible face.

"I know you’re probably thinking that is probably just a brave hiker, but trust me, that spot is completely inaccessible."

Adding to the spooky theory, users from Reddit claimed that authorities in the area have reported a sharp increase in the number of people who have gone missing on the peak – with most of them never found, news.com.au reports.

The pictures went viral on Reddit which led to a huge number of users speculating what the figure could be.

Seeing the crazy response it got online, SlicedUpBeef decided to return to the spot with her friends to see if they could capture the ghoul again – but had no luck.

However, as they were at the site taking more photos, they reportedly found a set keys dangling on a branch below the ledge they were perched on.

One of the group lent over and retrieved the keys to find they were for a Hyundai Elektra.

As they made their way back to their vehicle they terrifyingly found that they were parked next to the only other car in the car park – a Hyundai Elektra.

The car was dirty and looked like it had been sitting there a while. As it was getting dark the tourists decided to leave the keys on top of the car roof and made their way home.

But a week later, they saw the car being featured on the news.

A police report said a female tourist had gone missing in the area and despite her car being found in the car park, her whereabouts was a mystery.

Even creepier, according to the report the missing woman was described as tall and wearing a light grey jumper and jeans – similar to the figure in the image.

Some Reddit users remain sceptical on the ghost theory and have come up for "logical" explanations for the spooky-girl.

One Reddit user said that the shadows on the rock face caused an illusion, while another suggested it was melted ice.

Another person believed it was an actual human, writing: "Sorry to burst all your bubbles, but there’s a trail that leads up to that area and goes around the escarpment just under the rocks.

"That is, most likely, a person hiking around."
