Find Pat Carnes

Exit to Nowhere: Rural I-80 Exit Linked To Another Missing Person

Eighty six year old Patrick Carnes disappeared in April while driving across northern Nevada on Interstate 80.

His car was found abandoned at a little used freeway exit east of Winnemucca. Strangely enough Exit 205 was also linked to another missing persons case five years earlier.

Sixty two year old Judith Casida, reportedly depressed about her personal life, left a note at her Cold Springs home February 14, 2006, saying she was leaving.

Later that morning she was seen at a McDonalds in Lovelock. Three weeks passed before her vehicle, a white Mazda pickup was discovered on a dirt road a short distance from Exit 205.

The pickup was still operable. It wasn’t stuck or out of gas. A single set of footprints led away from it toward I-80.

There is no apparent links between the cases, but the coincidence of both disappearances beginning at an obscure rural freeway exit is difficult to ignore and raises the possibility that someone may be prowling the I-80 corridor looking for victims.


Exit To Nowhere: Psychic Joins Missing Persons Case

RENO, NV – When investigations stall, good detectives are open to calling on unusual resources.

Humboldt County investigators working on a mysterious missing persons case are now getting input from a psychic and are surprised at the results.

Click here to find out more!Seven months after 86 year old Patrick Carnes of Reno disappeared while traveling across northern Nevada on Interstate 80, investigators still have no solid leads.

His car was found abandoned April 14 at a little used freeway exit east of Winnemucca. A search of the surrounding countryside and, in fact, the length of the I-80 corridor from Wells to Winnemucca have failed to turn up any sign of Carnes or his constant companion, his dog Lucky.

We contacted psychic Elaina Proffitt, a former Reno resident and a veteran of a number of high profile criminal cases, and asked if she would get involved.

She said yes and twice in recent weeks met with authorities, even journeying to Humboldt County and Exit 205 where the car was found.

The result: they were surprised, but encouraged that she confirmed many of their hypotheses and she left them with some additional avenues to consider.

She also reached a stunning conclusion which casts a disturbing light on the disappearance of Patrick Carnes and, perhaps, others.
