Last month, I posted the tragic story of a missing little girl in Mississippi and the efforts to try to find her. A volunteer group called "Find Me" who uses so-called psychic means to locate missing persons and help solve crimes gave police information they felt was pertinent to her location. I was highly critical of psychic detectives - anyone who values making conclusions via evidence should be. There is extremely poor evidence (usually exaggerated testimonials) that psychics help in any way to solve crimes any more skillfully than the police or private investigators. They simply do not give useful results and it can clearly be argued that there is no merit in consulting a psychic to help find a person or solve a mystery.
Myra Lewis is still missing. This week, the county sheriff held a press conference announcing that the report of GPS locations from the Find Me group did not yield any helpful information towards the case.
It must become more widely known that consulting a psychic is a waste of time, and possible money, providing only false hope for desperate people. While there is likely a benefit to pooling resources via a volunteer group to help assess facts and leads, touting the concept of psychic powers is a dead end.
Myra has been missing since March 1st.
