(Newser) – With the bodies of 17 victims still missing from an air force plane crash on Friday, Chilean officials have turned to a psychic to help find the bodies, reports the AFP. "We're are working with a person who is on one of the (search) boats," says Chile's defense minister. "Not only are we using all of our technological capabilities, but also all the human and superhuman abilities that may exist."

The plane crashed in the Pacific Ocean close to the isolated Robinson Crusoe Island, 435 miles from the South American coast, but so far only four bodies and a small amount of wreckage has been found. "We must prepare for the possibility that we will not find some of the bodies," said the minister. One of the country's best known TV personalities was aboard the plane. (Read more Chile stories.)
