Nicola Paynes devastated mum used mediums to speak to her after disappearance

The mother of a missing daughter sought the “comfort” of mediums as her family mark the 30th anniversary with an Amazon Prime documentary series.

New mum Nicola Payne, 18, went missing on December 14 1991 when she took a 15-minute walk to her parents' house on a foggy day – but never made it home.

Despite extensive investigations and searches by specialist teams, she has never been found.

Since her disappearance, the family have put their time, energy and resources into solving her disappearance.

In a final effort to finally bring her home, Nicola’s family have released a new four-part documentary series with Prime Video to help find their missing daughter.

The devastating series took a poignant turn when family matriarch Marilyn sadly passed away two months ago without being able to lay her daughter to rest.

Now, speaking exclusively to Daily Star, Nicola’s brother Nigel has revealed how their late mother often sought the “comfort” of mediums to connect with her missing child.

When asked if the family still reach out to Nicola through the help of spiritual healers, the eldest brother confessed: “That’s my mum’s thing, it was definitely not me.

“We’ve still got one of Nic’s friends, she goes to mediums all the time and speaks to Nic but that was her best friend, you know?

“That gave my mum comfort so I was never gonna stop it, but I certainly don’t believe in that stuff, no.”

He went on to reflect how the documentary has helped to heal the family following her passing who would have supported the new campaign with a fiery passion.

Nigel explained: “She’d have loved it, 100 per cent. And she is in it which is quite nice for us because I can see her again and I can hear her, that is gonna really help me.

“She would have loved it because she was the mouthpiece of the whole [investigation]. My dad went along with it but my mum’s the talker, she’ll talk your head off.

“Whereas my dad will just kind of sit there just nodding his head and grunting every so often, but never a day has gone by that she didn’t think about Nic, never a minute. It tore her to pieces.”

Despite the compelling series casting doubt on a number of questionable proceedings in her lengthy investigation, Nigel explained that the family are no longer looking for a conviction.

He went on: “We are not looking for a conviction, we are not chasing that now. All we want is to find out where Nic is so we can bring her back home.

“It [the docu-series] has got to tweak someone’s conscience. Everybody in Coventry knows, they may not know the people themselves, but they know there are people in the community that do know.

“There are people out there who know something and can say something – but don’t. For whatever reason, they don’t say anything.

“But we are hoping that this will prick a few consciences. Allegiances change as people get older and we have got to ask, please find it somewhere.”
