(WBNG Binghamton) A local group in Binghamton spends their time searching for spirits of the dead.

They call themselves the Binghamton Ghost Hunters.

The group uses tools such as voice recorders, cameras and electronic field detectors.

While inspecting the Roberson Museum in Binghamton, one member asks the spirits questions while another records everything.

Their most treasured evidence was found at a cemetery in Owego. There they say they gathered recordings of a spirit telling them her name, Lucy.

"We definitely want to know what they want,. We may not be able to see them. They were people too and I believe they're trying to communicate with us and I think that the tools that we have today we're making one good step towards communicating with them," said Chad Ahearn, Greene.

The Binghamton Ghost Hunters have investigated nearly fifteen sites locally and they say they don't plan to stop there.

The group has planned at trip to an insane asylum in West Virginia next.
