Two young girls from Evansdale, Iowa have disappeared and the people in that area are searching far and wide to find them. The local sheriff’s department have been looking for more than two weeks and there’s a $50,000 reward being offered. But they’re getting exactly the wrong kind of “help” from dozens of ‘psychics.’
Deputies say they’ve taken 80 tips from psychic mediums claiming to know the girls location.
“They are all giving their opinion,” Chief Deputy Rick Abben said, “No two are having the same vision I guess you could say.”
Laura Henderson is a self-professed psychic from Cedar Rapids. She says it’s common for mediums to get involved in a missing persons cases.
“No psychic can answer every question,” Henderson explains, “Certainly you can get impressions, if someone’s alive their energy comes across stronger and feels different to a psychic in terms of how it comes across.”
In other words, it’s completely useless. And if one of those ‘psychics’ is even in the ballpark, that will be hailed as proof of their ‘psychic’ power; the 79 misses will be deemed irrelevant.
