A voice for the missing.

   I would like to draw to your attention a new blog series beginning today. Project Jason: A Voice For The Missing is starting a series called Psychics and Missing People. Kelly, the blog owner, is the mother of two boys, one of whom went missing without a trace almost five years ago. Kelly and her family, once their story gained media attention, became the target of  numerous psychics and mediums who claimed to be able to give them information about thier son. Needless to say, Jason is still missing. Kelly points out:

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.
   Over the next several weeks, Kelly will be presenting her story, and the stories of other loved ones of missing persons who have been victimized by these so-called psychic detectives, as well as commentaries from noted skeptics and critical thinkers. This blog series will be one of the most important illustrations of how people are victimized by psychics in our society. I think everyone should read it.
