PETALING JAYA - Tales of the abandoned structure that is Villa Nabila have been trending on social media, with netizens giving their take on the spooky Johorian site.
Rumours surfaced online that a group of 23 children went missing at Villa Nabila, an abandoned bungalow in Danga Bay here, reputed to be among the five most-haunted places in the country.
The rumours were reportedly false, but police said that they had received one report of a 16-year-old boy who went missing on Saturday, purportedly after he was seen entering the villa.
Many netizens shared their stories and urban legends about the haunted house on Twitter.
"According to Urban Legend, if anyone enters the bungalow in even numbers, they will leave the house in an odd number," said Twitter user @Nisah_Keiko.
@tashasaid2 shared; "Nabila was a little kid, she was killed by her stepmother (some said the maid) who was greedy to possess her former husband's heirloom."
Even photographers are hesitant to enter the haunted house.
"Based on experience, many photographers don't dare to visit Villa Nabila because the pictures they've snapped would include an uninvited guest," said @trulyas_meen.
@dameenised admits getting the creeps from the stories and pictures of Villa Nabila.
"By looking through the tweets and pictures of the villa are more than enough to frighten me," said @dameenised.
