Police should not rule out investigating tip-offs from psychics, witches or clairvoyants to help find missing people, according to new guidelines.
A consultation document from the College of Policing, which is the official source of professional practice on police work, has said that information from mediums should not be dismissed.
The consultation, which runs until next month, is to help ensure that cases of missing people are investigated effectively and supported by relevant management structures.

And in the detailed report it states: ‘High-profile missing person investigations nearly always attract the interest of psychics and others, such as witches and clairvoyants, stating that they possess extrasensory perception.’
‘Any information received from psychics should be evaluated in the context of the case, and should never become a distraction from the overall investigation and search strategy unless it can be verified.’
