REPORTED IN CALIDA CHRONICLE.
Lesley Read went missing in Bolnuevo, Mazarrón on Monday 17th of August. Although initially there was no immediate worry, no-one could know what was to unfold over the next few days. It was assumed she had gone for a walk, but as time moved on, concern grew. Doug eventually asked Carol to see if she could help locate his wife. She had been missing for three days and it was clear conventional enquiries and searches revealed no trace of her.
Doug gave Carol some clothes and a picture of Lesley to meditate on. She had no previous information on Lesley, other than that she had left her house on the Monday morning and had not returned. Carol did not previously know either Lesley or Doug.
Carol Everett works on a type of crime watch programme for Japanese national TV, where they broadcast her intuitively obtained information on high profile cold cases and let the public and police follow up the leads. The filming of one case took place in the Atrium Hotel in Bolnuevo earlier this year. To locate Lesley, Carol used very similar techniques used in crime cases. She needed a photo and personal possessions from Lesley and needed to be in a relaxed state of mind. This is really important for the work Carol does.
“Looking at Lesley's photo, I slowed down, my breathing shut down the left hand side of my brain, (this is the thinking brain), and reached out with my right brain for information on the situation. The information started to come through with words and pictures. It resulted in a personal profile of Lesley and the situation. It is necessary for me to tune in to the situation and to tune in telepathically to Lesley's mind to see what she could see through her eyes. The information came through very quickly. I saw the visions in my mind very clearly, which indicated she was alive, but I was agitated whether she would remain so for long.”
The psychological profile and information of Lesley's whereabouts and what she could see from where she was located was passed on to Doug. This information was then passed on to the British Consulate, as the local emergency services were unwilling to help at this point. The Embassy quickly passed the information on to the police, as with nearly four days with no food and water in August heat, it was becoming a potential emergency to find Lesley.
At last the helicopter went out to where Carol said Lesley would be found, inside a small hut with no roof, on top of the mountain. It was within a five mile radius from where she went missing. Carol had seen long flapping clothes in the investigation; the same clothes that were seen hanging on a bush near where Lesley was found.
Lesley was taken to hospital in the helicopter, in a very weak state and was put on a drip for a few days. She has now recovered and is back at home.
The family is grateful for all the help they received. At the time there were a lot of people rallying round to help. A local pub closed down to help with the search and Kelly, from Nicky G's office on Camposol took the day off work to help with interpretation and communications. Russell interpreted for Doug with police and the hospital and announcements had been made on Costa Cálida Radio by Steve about Lesley's disappearance. Indications are that the search groups must have been within feet of where Lesley was located. Possibly by that time she was too exhausted to respond to their shouts.
“Strange though it may seem, but before Lesley was found, I had a very strong vision of a dog. I knew that Lesley's dog had been run over, but I was not told what the dog looked like or the name of the dog, or where the accident took place. After I had sent all the information back to Doug, I was in the car between Puerto de Mazarrón and Bolnuevo. All of a sudden I saw a beige coloured dog with a long tail ‘hit the windscreen'. I shouted to my husband, “A dog has hit the car.” He said, “Don't be silly, you could cause an accident messing about like that. It would have broken the window if it had been
there”. He obviously had not seen or heard the dog at all.
Later on that day, Lesley's friend Stella came to see me. I told her what happened and she asked what the dog looked like, and did it have a name. I said it began with P or sounded like Poo or something, I wasn't sure. Stella said I had described Lesley's dog, She said its name was Penny. Later another friend of Lesley's, said that the dog's name was actually Poppy. I am convinced that the dog was communicating with me somehow, and guarding Lesley on that mountain. Of course I can't prove it; it's just my instincts. You must all think what you want to think for yourselves, but I don't know if the dog had a nick name Poo, or even something sounding like that, but Lesley was found where I said, despite the skeptics who said she was not alive. It was accurate enough for me to believe that her dog was telepathically helping Lesley, so there must have been a very strong love and bond there between her and Poppy.
When I work with the Japanese production company, they go to the expense of sending out a production team, director, producer, camera operator and sound guys from Japan to wherever I may be working. The programme is a success in Tokyo and they are following up more cold cases in Japan.
Unfortunately, despite the warnings Lesley again went to the same place just a few weeks later, But this time succeded in her suicide.
