BELOW ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF FAMOUS PSYCHIC'S HELPING POLICE IN MURDER AND MISSING PERSON CASES.
When bubbly hairdresser Paula Brown, 30, disappeared after a night out with friends in Sydney, Australia, in 1996
It was less than two kilometres from the spot that had been singled out by Durant.
New South Wales Police later admitted that the location suggested by Durant had proved to be “uncannily accurate”.
After police in Pennsylvania failed to trace pensioner Sylvester Tonet in 1988 his family feared he had come to a violent end. So they enlisted the help of psychic Myer.
With detective Will Greenaway she retraced Sylvester’s last journey until night fell, when she drew a map of where to find his body. The next day Sylvester’s body was found 150 yards from where she had stopped.
Renowned psychic Allison tracked down a 14-year-old girl who disappeared without a trace in New York in 1978.
Her first vision yielded the numbers 2562 – the girl’s date of birth (February 5, 1962) – an association with oil and the letters MAR. She then described a place with two sets of church steeples and a pair of chimneys, saying the girl was in an area of swampland but had not drowned.
The girl’s father began searching neighbouring towns until he found a matching location and the letters MAR written on a rock in large red letters.
His daughter was later found in an oil drum dumped in a waterhole.
Allison then correctly predicted the victim had been strangled by her boyfriend, who was arrested.
