Rhynnice Trelfa, 28, and her friends and family posed for a picture together in 2011
A mother was in shock after finding what appears to be a ‘dismembered’ hand in her family photo taken while on vacation.
Rhynnice Trelfa, 28, was enjoying a picnic with friends and family beside the Dovestones Reservoir in Greenfield, Manchester, when they posed for a picture together in 2011.
But the mother-of-one has since taken to social media asking for a paranormal expert to explain what she believes is a hand in the background of the image.
Ms Trelfa, from Bury, said: ‘When I first discovered the abnormal hand I knew immediately that is was an unexplainable phenomenon.
‘A shuddery feeling went all over my body, I started to cry, I had a lump in my throat, goosebumps. I was terrified.
‘I know absolutely that nobody was behind us. Also, another photo that was taken only seconds afterwards shows no sign of the hand.’
Ms Trelfa said she believes the hand appeared to be pointing towards the man in the middle of the group, who later passed away.
Ms Trelfa has asked a paranormal expert for their opinion
Dovestones Reservoir has been by a number of deaths in recent years, including David Lytton, 67, whose body was found at the site in December 2015.
Gardener Craig Wilcox, 28, was reported missing in January 2014 and his body was found at the beauty spots several weeks later.
Paranormal experts have suggested the hand may belong to a late family member of Ms Trelfa’s former partner, who is standing in front of it.
She added: ‘After I uploaded it online I was messaged by a few mediums who said it belonged to a female with sort of connection to my child’s father.
‘My father and I found there had been a long list of tragic incidents that have happened at the reservoir.
‘The most recent of these blew my mind. On the same day I posted the photo, a woman’s body was found in the same part of the reservoir.
‘The question I have to ask: Is it a message from the other side? My belief is that the soul in the photo is somehow linked with us.’
‘It’s very exciting to have captured something like this. I have always been a bit of a believer, but I hadn’t really experienced anything as solid as this.’
