in Mendota Illinois
|The Paranormal Anomaly Search Team was asked to come to Mendota
Illinois to help in the Search for Veronica Jill Blumhorst. Veronica came
home from work on September 20, 1990. Her car was found in the
garage, but she has never been seen again. There are reports of
paranormal activity in the areas near her work and home. On February
27, 2010 the team of John, Kevin and Susanne came to attempt to
communicate with Veronica or any entity that may be able to provide
information to help locate Veronica. John from the team is not psychic,
but he has the ability to see impressions that aide in our investigations.
We also use equipment to collect voices, images, or other evidence to
explain any found activity. These are our findings. Clicking the play
buttons will open the video in a new window. On 9/19/10 they had a
Memorial for Veronica. We returned on that day to investigate again. the
evidence from this visit is at the bottom.
|We started in Bartlett woods. John began to feel sad in this area. We
began to ask questions and for some response if there was an entity
there. John was able to get knocks on the tree he was standing by. We
attempted to recreate the knocks as a natural event but were unable.
The moaning sound you hear in the background are cows. Here is the
|While asking questions John got the phrase of "Not here" and "Not
pretty". He felt a strong feeling of a creek by some scattered trees and
an open field. We went to a few other locations trying to find that spot.
We had information Veronica's I.D. and some personal belongings were
found in a plastic bag in the river at a location in town after her
disappearance. We went to investigate there. This area was similar to
what John saw, but it did not have the field. We caught a sound that may
be a gun, It could also be a door as we are in a residential area. What is
odd is we heard that sound later.
|We later found an area that matched what John had seen. We got
clarification this is the area where the I.D. and other items were found.
We were unable to get any feelings or leads at this location. We went
back to Bartlett woods, as we had the strongest evidence there out of
the many locations we visited. Kevin asked why we were led to that
location and we got some interesting results. You will hear what sounds
like a gun again, just like before. There was a house about 100 yards
away, but this did not sound like a door, it matched the sound from the
other location, and we did not hear at the time. When we are
investigating and we hear an odd noise, we always mark the tape stating
what we heard. We did not mark the tape because we did not hear it
while we were at the location. There is also a voice response which is
unclear and we could not clean up. There is then a second voice at the
end which is very clear. This clip was caught on a digital recorder. The
cows are louder in this clip.
|We went to the garage where Veronica's car was found. John picked up
the feeling Veronica got out of her car, walked to the alley and got into
another vehicle, all of free will. Once she got to the car, John lost the
impression of her. This is a picture of the garage.
|The last stop on investigation was Sullivan's Foods. People claim
accounts of paranormal activity at this location. The building and parking
lot were put in right after Veronica's disappearance. The location is also
across the street from the Super Valu that she work at and left at
midnight that evening. John kept sensing a feeling in the corner of the
parking lot, although it was nothing clear. Susanne was asking questions
inside to verify if anyone was there, and trying to get information to
determine who it may be. She caught this on a digital recorder.
|During the investigation, we were able to get information about the police
investigation, information from witnesses, and we saw the areas in
question. We believe we collected paranormal evidence linked to the
case. Some is residual energy of the evening she disappeared and some
is information such as "In the water". We feel this case needs to be
looked at stronger. If you have any information that might help solve this
case, please let the family know. Her brother Todd Blumhorst has
started a Facebook page called "Remember Veronica Jill Blumhorst". If
you have any information please contact him via the page. You can
access it by clicking the photo.

|What is interesting about this clip is the sound we heard again, It is
heard after we ask what to look for, and then it states "it's in the water".
Were we being told the gun or something linked to it is in the water? We
believe there is strong evidence at the location we went to after John
saw the image.
|We returned on 9/19/10, the 20th anniversary of her disappearance to
