Tearah White, 24, made two phone calls Monday night around 8:15 p.m. after she could not find her 18-month-old daughter.
“I wanted to find my baby. I hoped they would tell me what house she was in,” said White.
White said her family and neighbors helped police search their neighborhood for hours. A DeKalb County detective found the child behind a house three doors down from her home, four hours after she was reported missing.
White said the psychic told her who took her child.
“They said it’s somebody that I know and from the looks of things it had to be somebody that I know,” said White.
White said the psychic also told her that her baby would be found.
The psychic didn’t say when or where the missing child would be found. Also, in kidnapping cases, most commonly the kidnapper is someone who knows the family, so the psychic’s guess about that is not at all impressive. Quite the contrary.
In kidnapping cases (or when a child disappears) the first few hours are crucial. The sooner they are noticed missing and search begins, the better the odds you have of finding the child.
This child in 18 months old and was just a few houses down the street. Could it be that the kid managed to walk there herself? This article held little indication that people were actively keeping an eye on her.
But, the twist in this story is that many people are conditioned to think psychics actually HELP find lost people when they absolutely don’t. Thanks, media, for perpetuating that myth.
