It's been two years with no answers from police as to what happened to a missing Parkersburg woman who was 25 years old at the time, so family and friends have turned to another source for clues- psychics.

It has been a heart wrenching two years for friends and family of Kim Jones, as they have been anxiously awaiting any word on her disappearance from Parkersburg Police.

"So we have to try to figure it out ourself," said Kim's aunt, Maddie Barker.

Recently loved ones turned to several psychics, including one woman who led police to the body of Jennifer McCrady in a remote area of Washington County in 1996. Later her husband, former Ohio State trooper Jack McCrady was convicted of her murder.

Barker said "She (the psychic) has told us that Kim is alive and I want to go with that and she said that it is in southern West Virginia, in the Bluefield/ Princeton area."

"(The psychic said) she left just going out for a little while to have a good time, didn't know that she was not going to get back. The people that she's with, I don't know why or what their reason is but they are dominating her and making her believe that if she tries to tell authorities or escape, leave whatever, then harm will come to her family."

Kim's friend Stacy Farnsworth said "She gave us a clue on some numbers she gave me 718 or 7181 and I actually found a county road that is 711 over 18 so I'm hoping to possibly go back down there."

The psychic drew a sketch of the house and told the family it's white, grey or grey blue.

Detectives have said in the past, Kim's ex-boyfriend dropped her off at her apartment Feb. 3, 2009 and a neighbor who saw her leave said she never heard her come back. Also detectives said her mom reported her missing the next day.

The family said it is unlike Kim to leave.

"She would have never missed her child's birthday," said Barker.

Now they're desperately searching for any clues that could lead them to Kim.

Police say they've been following up on leads even from psychics but they could not comment on where the investigation stands.

If you have any information you're asked to call police or 304-488-4151, 304-863-3447, or 304-966-8830.

Kim's grandfather is offering a $25,000 reward for any information that could potentially lead to a break in the case.
