Psychics enlisted to aid search for Aspen skier

ASPEN — The family of missing skier Jeff Walker consulted with psychics who guided search efforts Tuesday by ski patrol and volunteers at Aspen Highlands, Walker’s girlfriend confirmed.

Their advice could be a little more specific, however: They suggested to search skier’s right on the mountain, and anyone who knows Highlands Bowl knows it’s all “right”; the entire face runs in a series of fall-line chutes bisected by rock outcroppings and tight stands of aspen and conifers. But it certainly can’t hurt, as several hundred search and rescue members have been out looking for Walker since he was reported missing late Saturday. His pass was last scanned at a lift on the mountain around mid-day, and he was a noted aficionado of the Bowl, so it’s where the search has concentrated already. Unfortunately even though Walker’s jacket was equipped with a Recco beacon, a helicopter flyover using Recco detection equipment didn’t pick up any signal.

 “We’ve got some strong feelings that he’s still alive,” Liz Sathe, Walker’s girlfriend, said Tuesday afternoon. She said Walker’s family consulted with three psychics after intensive search efforts Sunday and Monday failed to yield any clues on Walker’s whereabouts. The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office and Mountain Rescue Aspen suspended their search at the end of the day Monday. Aspen Highlands ski patrol said it would continue to look for Walker.

Information from the psychics about the type of terrain where Walker might be was provided to Aspen Skiing Co. for the search on Tuesday. The search effort was guided to skier’s right of the mountain, Sathe said.

“They’ve all been consistent,” Sathe said of the psychics. “They all feel strongly that this is a (critical) day because he can’t scream anymore.”

Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle said patrol is working with the family. “We’re taking every single lead seriously,” he said.
