In what they call "a hobby gone haywire" Bowie residents Mark Torsani and Gary Fischer have been scaring the socks off their neighbors and haunted house enthusiasts for more than 25 years.

"Have you seen my daughter?" was the eerie refrain at the fourth annual St. Hugh's Youth Haunted House on Saturday night. It was this phrase that set apart the effort by the church's youth group. Because haunted houses – with their creepy darkness, werewolves, undead, bloody (and bloodless) characters – are all well and good (or bad, depending on your point of view). But it is the story that makes the experience. The story of the St. Hugh's Youth Haunted House this year was one made just for the kids, as writer Becky Bailey, along with the help of students and parents, dreamed up a scene wherein her "daughter" was missing somewhere in the woods.
