Missing Persons and Psychics

Inside Edition did a story on Psychics finding Missing Persons.  They had heard that when someone goes missing, primarily a missing child that psychics will call offering their services to find the person.

But, according to Marc Klaas, a child advocate and the father of Polly Klaas, who was abducted and murdered, “Never in the history of the world has a psychic solved a missing child case.”

So, I can’t help but wonder if this is true.  Has there NEVER been a documented case of a psychic who has found a missing person?  If not, this is mind-boggling to me.

We, as a society, over the last 20 years or so, have accepted psychic abilities as a given.  We talk about is as it is tangible and many people have it.  Police detectives have been known to use psychic’s to solve crime and a popular TV show was based on a psychic that have the ability to solve crimes, but if no one has been found as a missing person because of it, doesn’t that shake your belief in psychic abilities?

The FBI or the US National News has never credited a psychic detective for solving a crime, preventing a crime, or finding a kidnap victim or corpse.

The Committee for Skeptical Inquiry has posted a report on Sylvia Browne, one of the nations most know psychic’s, and said, that in about 115 missing persons case, despite her repeated claims to be more than 85% correct, “Browne has not even been mostly correct in a single case.”

So, I am calling on everyone out there.  If you know someone that has been found, or even if you, yourself has been found, as a direct result of a  Psychic, let me know your story.  I would love to share it with all my readers.

If you disagree with Marc Klaas or the Committee or Skeptical Inquiry, or even the FBI or News service, let me know.

I have picked up a few things from it.  It is written in the style of the author using examples of cases as a way to explain how or why you would do something.
