Cindy Owens has worn out two pairs of shoes searching the woods of northern Maine since her friend Virginia Sue Pictou-Noyes went missing two decades ago after leaving a Bangor hospital.On Saturday the search was joined by a southern Maine crime-fighting psychic who said a combination of dreams and sensations indicated the body of Pictou-Noyes, or clues to her disappearance, were along the banks of Wallagrass Stream.In the early morning hours of April 24, 1993, Pictou-Noyes left Eastern Maine Medical Center, desperate to get back home to her five children in Easton, according to a Jan. 9 article in the Bangor Daily NewsA 26-year-old wife and mother, Pictou-Noyes had been taken to EMMC after being beaten outside a Bangor bar, allegedly by her husband, Larry Noyes, and his brother Roger Noyes Jr., according to a police report.She has not been seen nor heard from since.In late 2011 [Fred] Hamilton said he had a four-hour vivid dream about the case with what he said were detailed images of the area in Wallagrass.

Fred was contacted by the daughter of Cindy Owens. He volunteers his time, at his own expense, to help with solving crimes as part of the Psychic Crime Fighters. This appears to be a loose network of people who do this sort of thing.

He said he has successfully predicted the outcome of around 30 criminal cases over the last two years.
My doubts regarding psychics detectives run very deep. I do not buy into the claim that any psychic has ever helped solve even ONE mystery or crime that could not have been solved by someone who was NOT psychic. Why? Their stories are vague. They do not meticulously note their hits or misses, instead they claim success post hoc. They have never been actually tested and shown to have been successful. Instead, they tell us they were successful.
In order to convince me that psychic can aid in solving crime, they would need to be subjected to more rigorous standards: an independent third party would need to carefully document the hits and misses. Timing, sources and details would have to be recorded. All input to the psychic would need to be monitored so it was clear they were indeed “blind” to information from other means. A control would be needed to see if the same conclusion could be made with non-psychic skills. And, most of all, the psychic would have to actually give precise information that secures the solving of the case. No one has ever done this. No one. Instead, we hear story after story of psychics called into help (not typically by law enforcement who know they waste their time but) by families and friends who are desperate to find any resolution to these tragic events. I have NO doubt that many self-styled psychics mean well and do their work in good faith but the truth is, they fool themselves and others into thinking they help. The hope they deliver is, sadly, false. If only it were true…
