Jess Hanson with Survival Technologies says that includes having shelter water food warm clothing and blankets. We know that 19 year old Maureen Kelly of Vancouver has been missing for eight days now. She left on a spritual quest from the Canyon Creek Campground on Sunday, June 9th and has not been seen since.
The woman was naked and carried only a few items with her. Hanson says he can't judge but it would have been helpful to understand her state of mind as she left camp for the woods. The Skamania County Sheriff's Department with the help of over 70 volunteers looked for the woman in two seperate searches. Their efforts turned up empty each time.
Hanson believes the woman could have fallen and the fall could have ended her life. There's also the preditory factors. Many wolves and cougars call that forest home. Those animals are constantly on the look out for food.
