Over 1,000 psychics (some of them with national profiles, including Allison DuBois, inspiration for the hit NBC TV show Medium) gave information they claimed would locate Elizabeth Smart. Tragically, none of it led to her rescue; she was recovered because a couple recognized her on a city street and called police.
There are thousands of self-proclaimed psychics and psychic detectives in the world who claim to be able to find missing persons. Some are rich and famous, such as Sylvia Browne, DuBois, Noreen Renier, and Carla Baron. If they truly have the powers that they claim, why do we see horrific cases like those of Smart and Dugard? Why aren't psychics leading police to rescue these innocent young victims within hours or days of their abductions? Why did Jaycee Dugard have to wait nearly two decades for her rescue--by suspicious neighbors, not psychics--while being subjected to continual sexual and physical abuse, if a psychic had the power to find her?
Despite claims to the contrary, there is not a single documented case of a missing person being found or recovered due to psychic information. The fact that any well-known abducted or missing person you can name is either still missing or was not found by a psychic should tell you something. Here's a hint: the next time you see a news story about a missing person, check the follow-up and see if a psychic's information led to the person's recovery.
