New media reports and photographs of a recently found
campsite verify that one of the shelters used by Elizabeth Smart's kidnappers to hide her
was "cut into a hillside." The elaborate and sturdy structure is twenty-four feet long and part dugout, part lean-to.
A report states that the roof slopes at a forty-five degree angle and is seven foot tall at its tallest point, and one
foot at its lowest point.
Last August PSI TECH's President Joni Dourif and CEO
Dane Spotts traveled to "This Is The Place Park" in Utah to meet Dave Smart.
The monument at the park site had been determined by PSI TECH through Technical Remote
Viewing® to be the nearest unique landmark to Elizabeth's present location.
It is now known that the park property was within several miles of the area where Elizabeth was being held, and that the direction of her location, northeast, was the same direction from the monument indicated in our August 22, 2002 Summary Report.
Prior to Joni and Dane's arrival in Utah last August, a member of the K9 search team informed PSI TECH that an Indian Burial Vault located within the park property closely matched many of the Technical Remote Viewing sketches.
While the K9 team searched this area, a scent dog which had been trained to specifically look for Elizabeth's scent, became agitated near the site of the vault, and wanted to enter it. At that time we insisted that the site be searched, to rule it out as a possibility.
The vault structure, like the hide-out utilized by Elizabeth's abductors, was also cut into a hillside, with its entrance sloped at an approximate 45 degree angle.
As can be seen from the TRV sketches shown to the right, (Fig. C, D, and E) the data
closely matched the shelter shown in the photographs (Fig. A and B) and described in the latest news reports. The Deseret News
on Wednesday reported the following:
"Farther down the hill to the south is another contraption that looks like a second cooking area. A burner-like device
is set up under a rusted 55-gallon drum with five apparent flues made with plastic piping sticking out the top."
That device, made from a drum, appears to be
depicted in Fig. C., directly below the sloped structure. The target remote viewed in the blind by the viewer
who produced the Fig. C sketch was "Elizabeth Smart / Abductor(s) / Present Location"
and was worked on July 9, 2002.
The Deseret News also reported on Wednesday that
investigators found the knife used to kidnap
Elizabeth at this campsite.
During analysis the viewer who produced the
Fig. C. sketch wrote the following on July 9, 2002: "A male with a knife is sad, lonely,
frustrated, concentrating, waiting for things to blow over."
In Fig. D, the blind target that was worked
was also "Elizabeth Smart / Abductor(s) / Present Location." This sketch, produced
on July 2, 2002, also depicts a sloped structure. The viewer's
data written on the sketch includes the following: "Enclosed,
shelter, hard, sloped, gritty, outside, bad place."
The blind target worked in the sketch shown as Fig. E was "Elizabeth Smart / Present Location." This sketch also depicts a sloped
structure in a hill side and was produced on August 20, 2002.
The most difficult part of working targets involving "unknown" locations,
is during analysis where we have consistent and accurate data produced by many remote viewers which accurately
depicts the location, but we have to then determine exactly where, in many miles of homogenous terrain, the feature is.
We accomplish this by looking for "markers" which are nearby significant
geological features or landmarks, and then compare the information
to maps and descriptions of sites. In this case, that landmark
was identified as "This Is The Place Monument" which is located
just a few miles away from the area where Elizabeth was being held captive.
