Back in 1992 during the early morning hours between 0200 - 0400 I was working in patrol for a local law enforcement agency. While driving in the 1700 - 1800 block of manatee ave. East I observed an old man sitting in a high back wooden rocking chair right next to the roadway. The old man was facing the roadway on the north side smiling and he was rocking in the chair. The figure was wearing all black clothing with a tall black hat that appeared to be from the early 1900's or late 1800's.The figure's face was a pale white. I observed the figure for perhaps 2-3 seconds as I was driving west bound on manatee ave east. I immediately did a u-turn driving over the median in the center of the roadway now heading east bound however the figure was nowhere to be seen.
I continued to drive back and forth by the area for several minutes trying to explain what I had observed as some other object that I had mistaken for the figure of an old man in a rocking chair but there was no other explaination.I know the area where I observed this is an old historic area of Bradenton and not to many years before the area had been cleared of several old homes and old oak trees to widen manatee ave from a narrow two Lane road to the four and six Lane divided highway that it is today. I remember there was a protest from residents about clearing out the many old historic oak trees in the area to widen the roadway. This is the first time I have ever documented this incident and I was curious if anyone else has ever observed a similar figure in that area since the widening of manatee ave east.
