Disappointed with results so far, the family of a man who’s been missing since Oct. 29 is looking to bring in a psychic to head them in the right direction.

Since Friday, the family has searched several bodies of water, asked the public for help and offered a $1,000 reward for information on the disappearance of Bill Rossey, 63, who was last seen the night of the Meadville Jaycees Halloween Parade.

The group is led by Lee Yendell and Rebecca Wallace, children of Rossey, and Yendell’s fiancee, Wenoka Beck.

Discouraged, Yendell said the family is trying to contact psychic Sylvia Browne. “Personally, I don’t believe in that kind of hocus pocus, but I’ll try anything at this point,” he said. “We’ve had some little clues, maybe with the little clues we’ve had, she can offer some insight, lead us in the right direction. If she tells me he’s at Burger King, I’ll go look right now.”

Yendell, who came to the area from Michigan on Friday to help organize the search, plans to return there tonight. “The family will continue,” Yendell said. “The search is going to continue. We still welcome volunteers to search.”

The family has complained of little outreach from the community and from police. But police have said any search in outlying areas should be based on a solid lead, especially with the area’s current deep snow and freezing temperatures.

Today’s searching will focus again on Tamarack Lake, Yendell said.
