The myth is based on an unknown ghostly entity, reported by many myth hunters on the web, which haunts the docks in Grummer Road, Northwood Heights.
The myth originated from YouTube videos soon after the release of the game. According to retro myth hunter David Edge, the myth actually originated from an unknown forum post, where an unnamed player claimed to have seen the outline of a woman and four other transparent construction workers standing on the dock.
The nature of the sightings varies from video to video. The kinds of sightings include inexplicable noises heard in the region, with shadows lurking around the corners. The most probable explanation for the myth is either various glitches, coincidentally happening in the area, or an Easter egg ghost still undiscovered.
