The search for the 1-year-old baby Lisa Irwin, who has been missing from her Kansas City home since Oct 4, has taken a rather interesting turn after the self-proclaimed psychic, Stephanie Almaguer, from Texas claimed that she has had visions on the whereabouts of the baby.

Stephanie shared her visions about the missing baby in the form of drawings and sketches in her blog. After she published her visions on the blog, a group of volunteers set out in search of the location where the baby might have been buried, as suggested by the psychic. But their search yielded no result. Even Kansas Police said there was no reason not to search the place. 

Stephanie, who has also worked on other missing persons' cases, has been criticized by the media as well as the public.

Last week, two online radio shows discussed Stephanie's involvement in many missing cases, including the Baby Lisa case. The hosts of the radio shows - Levi Page of the Levi Page Show and Tricia Griffith of the Websleuth Blogtalk Radio Show - accused Alamguer of being not credible. They accused her of injecting herself into high profile cases, and even stealing visions of another psychic in missing 5-year-old HaLeigh Cummings' case.

Levi said that in 2009, Stephanie inserted herself into the HaLeigh Cummings case and that she charged Marie Griffith, HaLeigh's maternal grandmother, and some friends of Marie's $600 for her plane ticket from Texas to Florida from where HaLeigh had gone missing.

He said that Stephanie had got frustrated when she could not find HaLeigh in Florida and even called the family asking them where they thought she should search. He added that a lot of people from Florida believed that Stephanie was after the reward money.

The psychic blogger gave a reply to the accusations in the form of an email. In a report published in examiner.com, Stephanie Almaguer reportedly wrote an email last week responding the comments on the radio talk shows.

Levi is talking things out of context.

I had been working, privately on HaLeigh Cummings for almost a year with Capt. DP [presumably Dominic Piscetello with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office] and MG [Marie Griffith, HaLeigh's grandmother] talked w/DP and asked him what I thought about me, etc,...after she'd read a few post, he said he believed in me, but nothing is a guarantee...

Anyway, she and I talked and she wanted me to at least come and search, if not for one day......Her friends, got together money to bring me there and back....I believe the RT fair was about $300, on cheaptickets.com   I'm not sure.  They paid for nothing more....I paid for my own food, drinks, up-keep, etc....

It was no vacation and I spent HOURS in the hot sun, searching - I was only there 2 1/2 days.....I don't inject myself into cases....I work on these cases because of a personal tragedy.....

seeing my [omitted for privacy] EVERYDAY for the past 7 years search online for [omitted] only 2 missing brother's is heartbreaking.....

I only try to use my abilities to help locate missing person's so that even if I help ONE family - not feel the way my [omitted for privacy] feels each day, then I did something good.

There will always be those who think your scamming, taking advantage of, etc....But that never has been and never will be my reasoning.  I, as many Psychic Detectives, will NEVER claim I CAN FIND YOUR MISSING LOVED ONE!  NEVER......... I can not promise anything like that!

All I can do it try....and it's very, very hard......and the outcome or probability of my success is near 0%....

but it doesn't mean that I should just give up.  I do this in memory of my [omitted for privacy] - I do this to help. That's all.

My family in no means makes a 'good Living' - and live paycheck to paycheck as many others do.  I can't afford to go and look for every missing person I may do a 'reading' on....That's why I started my own Blog.....

If someone comes across it, finds something interesting, good - use it...If not - leave it behind.  Thats all. 

If I become 'involved' with a case, it's because someone else involved me - rather than me 'injecting' myself.  I have my own freedom and right to post on my own blog, just as many other's - including Levi and the others, about anything I want.  doesn't mean I injected myself into anything.

I did contact Levi, believing he was a trusted source asking how to get in touch with Marie.....After a year of working on the case with DP, I wanted to at least meet her...(by email or telephone, not face to face) and let her know I was trying everything I could to find her granddaughter....

If she's honest, ask her...she'll tell you - Me going to Florida wasn't my idea.....

I'm sincere in what I do no matter what anyone thinks.

Morgan Harrington....I didn't solve her case.....Other's claim that I am claiming I 'found' her....No, again- twist of words....

I only described, even in miles, where I believed she could be found and described the area in detail.....

Her being found accidently by a farmer where I'd described, and the miles away i'd described also...That's all, really in her case. 

I just want everyone to know that if they begin seeing my name in association with a case, it's because SOMEONE, for some reason, asked me to help further - perhaps after reading my blog...Idk....that's really all. 

That's what happened with Lisa Irwin, bloggers even state this on my blog. 

My local news did do an interview to set the record straight for me......whether it helped or not, Idk...but it doesn't matter.  I know the truth and I know that when I lay my head down to sleep every night, I did what was right.

Well, the psychic may or may not be after the reward money. The real issue is - Baby Lisa is still missing. And volunteers and the police are still looking for a clue that will lead them to the missing baby.
