A description of the experience
Flammarion, C., Carroll, L, - Death and its mystery: before death
On March 1, 1914, Dr. Osty received a letter which told him that in the little commune of Cher, an old man of eighty-two, Monsieur Etienne Lerasle, had disappeared and that all search for him had been vain. Madaure Morel, who lived in Paris and was possessed of second sight (I myself have had occasion to consult her), to whom the doctor had brought a silk handkerchief that had belonged to Monsieur Lerasle, followed the walk he had taken through a wood and saw him stretched out dead on the ground, having stopped, worn out, and, in fact, determined to die. It was the second of March.
For fifteen days his family and the village people----eighty men---on the demand of the mayor had explored the forest without finding anything. From the detailed directions of the medium, they followed the paths described by her and reached the corpse in the attitude in which she had seen it: she had followed him as far as that, tapping with his cane, as was his habit, and stretching himself out near a great tree and a brook, never to rise again.
Madame Morel had never heard either of this good man or of this country about Cher; her psychio power-which we mention here as one of the proofs of the existence of our mental element, independent of the physical organism-was able to reach the old man leaving his home, see the past, and feel the future. AII this was not shut up in the fold of the silk handkerchief, assuredly, but the handkerchief served to establish the communication between the medium and the man to be discovered. There is here neither telepathy nor transmission of thought: no one knew.
