Psychics & Missing People Training
You may wonder why Project Jason takes such a strong stance against use of psychics in missing persons cases.
Popular media, TV Shows, and books continually plant the idea that there must be something to this business of psychics. With so many negative stories all around us of crime, wars, murders, etc, we, as a society, have a strong desire to believe in something good, something that seems miraculous. We want a quick fix for what ails us. We seem to latch any to anything that appears to offer one of these quick fixes, including the notion that psychics can solve missing persons cases. It would be wonderful if that were true, but it is not.
So far, there is not one single case that a pyschic solved a missing persons cases using paranormal means. They may have given the appearance that they did because of making guesses based on any knowledge of the case they obtained through various sources.
Use of psychics in missing persons cases wastes the time and resources of law enforcement and can cause prejudice in the case. (The pyschic claims the person is dead, which may cause people to stop searching, etc.)
There is not one proven case in which a psychic, using special powers or abilities not given to the typical person, has located a missing person, whether dead or alive. It may be possible that some persons have an ability that defies science and logic, but there is no known scientific evidence of this. These persons re-victimize families by taking away hope where it should stand, and giving hope where there is none. No person has the right to do this to another.
Psychics and other users of purported paranormal phenomena, cause unnecessary and damaging pain and anguish to families of the missing. They can also add to financial stress if they charge fees. We’re already on a roller coaster ride of events and emotions, and we should have no desire to add to it.
Understanding what goes on behind the scenes should decrease any guilt feelings for not accepting offers of “help” from these persons, whether it is fee-based or not. We want to lessen the pain already present in our every breath, and arm families with the information to defend themselves against these persons.
The evidence that psychics are not helpful and in some cases even harmful, is overwhelming.

Robert Lancaster, who authors the website stopsylvia.com, explains how “psychics” make it look as if they truly know things they couldn’t. He also shares several facts about well-known “psychic” Sylvia Browne, who has never solved a missing person case. This series is a must for persons who still aren’t convinced about the frauds who perpetuate this myth.

In her role as one of the nation’s most outspoken advocates against the use of psychics in missing persons’ cases, Kelly Jolkowski was a guest on the Catholic Answers Live call-in radio program. Kelly shared the hour with Angelo Stagnaro, a magician/mentalist who investigates and exposes fraudulent spiritualists and psychics. Kelly covered the emotional angle and how psychics harm, and Angelo demonstrated how psychics are able to fool so many. Both emphasized the Church teachings in respect to this typically forgotten issue.Catholic Answers Live, one of the most popular Christian radio shows, is carried on hundreds of stations nationwide.
