Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case )


Basgier was last seen sailing off the coast of Virginia Beach, Virginia on October 3, 1987. He and a companion, Marc McDaniels, were headed towards the Chesapeake Light Tower in a fifteen-foot green or blue Sea Eagle fishing boat. That day, a storm blew through the area, creating 10- to 12-foot waves. The two fishermen never returned to shore and their boat has never been located. A photo of the boat is posted below this case summary.
McDaniels was 27 years old at the time of his disappearance; photographs and additional information for him are unavailable. He and Basgier are presumed to be lost at sea.
