A paranormal investigator named Lee Brickley shared his account of the said sighting of Black-Eyed Child recently.
“On Saturday 13th September, my wife and I were walking though Cannock Chase near to Stile Cop with our dog. Once we had entered the woodland, and the road was no longer visible, we started to hear the giggling noise of a little girl.
“To our amazement, a child, no taller than one meter in height appeared as if out of nowhere further up the path in front of us. We stopped dead in our tracks after noticing her eyes had no colour. Her head was tilted to the side in much the same way it would appear if she had been hung.
“She stared at us for around five minutes before running away into a densely grouped area of trees. My wife wanted to follow her, but I was having none of it.”

It is interesting ot note that it was exactly 30 years ago since the Black-Eyed child was spotted on Cannock Chase. Brickley encourages other locals who have witnessed the sighting of Black-Eyed Child to furthey prove that the urban legend is indeed real.
“In my opinion, the black-eyed child seems to be some kind of demon. While it might seem like a standard spectral encounter, almost all the reports involve the child leading people towards potentially dangerous situations. I have received nine different reports in the last two years from seemingly credible witnesses. During interviews most of their stories have been very similar. I’m also appealing for more reports, so if anyone has more information, I ask they get in touch as soon as possible.” - Lee Brickley to Huffington Post
