Psychic Tip Fruitless In Hunt For 2-Year-Old

TACOMA - Authorities frustrated in their search for 2-year-old Teekah Lewis yesterday resorted to a psychic's tip to scour an area near the Fort Lewis military base south of Tacoma.

The little girl's disappearance Jan. 23 from a Tacoma bowling alley has perplexed police and family members. Although several tips have been received, police say they have no suspects and few leads.

A psychic who has proved credible in the past suggested that searchers look on the east side of Fort Lewis. But that tip was fruitless, too, said Tacoma police spokesman Jim Mattheis.
