Retired Law Enforcement Working With Psychics to Find Missing Persons, Solve Murders

When I first heard about the work of Find Me, I wasn't sure what to think. On a social visit, drink in hand, I stared across the living room at my impeccable source, Joni Evans, among the most respected and successful professionals in publishing, now retired as Publisher and President of Simon & Schuster and Random House. (Evans serves on the Find Me board of directors.) 

She said, simply, "Current or retired law enforcement personnel are using 158 psychics worldwide to help them solve missing persons cases and homicides." Later I was shown a confidential video in which the investigators and psychics discuss the work they've been doing together. Here was a team of experienced professional investigators teaming up with psychics, forensic experts, handwriting analysts, and others to solve the unsolvable. It was the stuff of fiction, except that it's happening now.

Don't miss today's conversation. We'll cover how the not-for-profit Find Me chooses cases and how many cases they've solved, and we'll talk with a psychic working on the team. Is psychic ability real, or are their results tied to any group tasked with thinking outside the box?

The Find Me organization says it intends to expand its efforts into the area of human trafficking once it has fully developed its computer programming, which will make use of artificial intelligence, among other things, to solve cases.
