How a lost American woman survived for six months in the mountains, eating grass and mossPictolic
A 47-year-old woman who went missing more than six months ago in a canyon in Utah has recently been found. All this time, she spent the night in a small tent and survived on grass and moss. The name of the American woman was not disclosed. She was reported missing in November 2020 after finding a car and camping equipment in a parking lot near Spanish Fork Canyon 64 km from Salt Lake City. Find out what really happened to the tourist from our material.
The county sheriff and rescuers searched the area for a long time and thoroughly, but could not find the missing woman. In the end, they took her car and belongings, thinking that the tourist had crossed the border with Colorado. However, the local authorities did not stop the search, combing the area on foot and observing from the air. Last weekend, the traveler was finally found.
It was almost an accident to find the missing one. A group of volunteers used a drone during the search operation, but the device ran into rocks and fell into the canyon. The drone operator and a police officer descended to retrieve the gadget. On the way, they came across a tent that seemed abandoned, but, in fact, was home to a missing American woman for 6 months. At that time, the woman was inside.
The traveler lost a lot of weight and was exhausted. She told rescuers that she had been living in a tent of her own accord since her disappearance. The woman endured the winter cold and survived by eating moss, grass, and quenching her thirst with water from the river.
The search team took the tourist and sent her to the hospital for a mental health assessment. In addition, the police checked whether she had done anything illegal. As a result, it turned out that the woman did not commit a crime, so if she wants to return and become a hermit again, no one will stop her. The local authorities will only provide it with additional supplies, so that it no longer eats only grass.
Meanwhile, 91-year-old Rosemary Frank from the UK survived, spending 48 hours after falling on the floor in the bedroom. The old lady survived, thanks to a houseplant.
