A TOOWOOMBA ghost hunting group has photographed a red figure in a Toowoomba cemetery on the anniversary of deadly floods that struck the city.

The founders of paranormal group Toowoomba Ghost Chasers were stunned when they found out a member of their group had independently chronicled the same red 'figure' near a gravestone.

Ghost Chasers' Katie Harvey said she attended Drayton Cemetery that day along with fellow member Kylie Samuels.

They spotted the "ghoulish" red image and photographed it.

"The cemetery had a funny feel about it that day, like it was full of energy," she said.

"It also happened to be the anniversary of the floods so whether that was a coincidence, I don't know."

The group was audibly calling for the figure, known as the "red girl" to make herself known.

"While we were taking photos it wasn't until later that we realised a fellow member had also photographed the unusual phenomenon."

"We kept hearing different 'unusual' muffled talking while in the middle section of the cemetery as well."

The bizarre sounds were the only creepy thing that had the Ghost Chasers on edge.

"There was two occasions I felt like I was being touched," Ms Harvey said.

"Like a hand placed on my arm once and about 30 mins later on my shoulder.

"We often ask if any spirit is around to touch us to let us know they are around.

"It was an interesting day."

Toowoomba has made headlines worldwide as one of the most "haunted" cities in Australia and the Ghost Chasers soon formed to investigate any ghostly incidents.
