    I'm sad for her that I can't seem to find much on her…I found an obit for I think her step mom (and I think the correct spelling of her last name might be Tillett). I hope she's ok and I hope we hear more about her.

    It's been sadly confirmed.
    Tillette’s body was found during a second search Sunday. Investigators determined it was her based on the location, clothing and other items at the scene.

    I just came across this article about a SAR group who looked for Heather.

    Mt. Airy man races against time to save missing and lost persons
    Posted on May 12, 2015, updated on May 14, 2015 by Sue Ann Rybak

    [...]
    The Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue, a nonprofit volunteer organization founded in 1979, responds to search requests for missing persons in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

    GPSAR volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, engaging in rescue operations in the wilderness or urban areas. Their mission, Hopkins said, is simple: to respond so “that others may live.”

    [...]
    Hopkins recalled how one woman wrote on Facebook that Heather Tillette, an Upper Merion woman who went missing in February after going to Einstein Medical Center in East Norriton on Feb. 26, knocked on her door the day after they searched the area.

    “She posted it on Facebook but didn’t want to give her name,” he said. “No, she didn’t. I didn’t change the search area. You waste time shifting everything based on one comment someone made anonymously on Facebook. I found out later that was inaccurate. I tracked her down, based on a photo of a house she posted on Facebook. I told her, ‘Don’t play around like that because next time it won’t be a friendly visit.’”

    He said there was a lot of confusion in that case because two police departments were involved when she went missing. Unfortunately, GPSAR wasn’t contacted until two weeks later.

    “Once things got sorted out, we were able to go back on Sunday and find her in about 30 minutes,” Hopkins said. “She had just laid down in a field and died. And, that’s a lot of what we see.”

    He said that when Tillette first got lost, she was knocking on residents’ doors, asking to call her mother, but when people said, “I’ll get the police,” she became paranoid and ran away.

    “Near the end, she was asking to go back to the hospital,” Hopkins said. So, I don’t think she ever intended to kill herself. She was just very confused.”
