Gerard Croiset’s (March 10, 1909 – July 20, 1980) claims of spectacular psychic tracking abilities thoroughly perplexed police and private investigators. His success rate was relatively no better than lucky guessing at times. Multiple parties would ask Croiset for any breakthrough, especially in missing children cases. Some investigations would be very detailed down to the specific location of the crime, leading to recovery of the body. Other times, he could do no better than say the victim was no longer findable, followed by a death in absentia conclusion.

One test devised by researchers for seers-among-peers was the chair test. In it, a supposed psychic would be asked to describe a person who would occupy a randomly chosen chair number for an upcoming event. The kicker was the results were sealed before the gathering, and the invitations were not arranged by organizers beforehand. Croiset completed multiple, one time accurately describing a middle-aged woman who recently made a mistake adding her bills, loved the tenor of ‘’Falstaff’’ and had a small cut on her right middle finger.


Scrolling through the files will shows names of people who have recently gone missing or died under suspicious circumstances in the last several days. It seems to have a particular penchant for relocating the youth, making sure they’re the first cases seen. Each name will have related information – landmarks where they were last seen, their daily schedule and associates they last saw.

As the search continues, the growing burden of finding truth unnerves the effects. The pages begin showing inaccurate or conflicting facts the more worried a reader becomes. It’s like the validity of the information depends on how level-headed and composed the user behaves, versus toiling in a whirlwind of panic.
