SYDNEY - An Australian psychic searching for a missing six-year-old girl found a woman's torso wrapped in plastic, in a discovery which confounded police.
The psychic told police a premonition about little Keisha Abrahams, who has been missing for 12 days, drew her to Sydney's sprawling Nurragingy Reserve, where she made the grim find on Wednesday.
Police said it was not the missing girl. But they did not rule out asking the psychic, who has not been named, to help them in their search.
"Well, it's quite interesting that there's a woman and she had a sense or feeling it was worth her while to come to this particular part of the park," Detective Chief Inspector Pamela Young said.
"We're still exploring that, it's certainly an interesting proposition of hers."
Young added that police were contacting relatives of mother-of-two Kristi McDougall, who has been missing since June 19.
Abrahams went missing after her mother put her to bed on July 31, sparking a large police search and nationwide media interest. The front door was unlocked but showed no sign of forced entry, and the child hasn't been seen since.
