    The comments below the NBC San Diego article give more detail to what happened.

    One poster said it was not a tent, but a 500 square foot yurt that she lived in. Apparently she packed up the yurt and moved it to storage on 2/11 and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

    I looked up a yurt, much more sophisticated than a tent.

    Maybe she was scoping out a new location? She had the yurt packed up and stored so she must've had an intention of going some place.

    I wonder what she did for work? And who the land her yurt was on belonged to?

    I dug around a little more and found the information I attached.

    It says that she was heard by an employee asking about the Whiskey Flat Trail and looking for caves in the area. She may have purchased a map prior to her arrival near Kern River.

    I can't find any updates. It doesn't look like she has been located or than anyone is still looking for her?

    Thanks for the info EmiLove

    Funny but, I am familiar with yurts lol

    She would need help to move it.

    So where's the yurt now? Did she move it with her car??? Can't imagine her doing it alone.

    Regardless, in this info about the trail - there's mention of private property...fwiw.

    :dunno:

    The missing poster does not say Lauren was seen the parking lot only that her car was found there. Is her car STILL in the parking lot? Or did LE take it?

    Lakeside (where she retrieved her yurt) is a 5 hour drive to the lodge.

    :waitasec:

    I was surprised to see google offers streetview as it is really seems like the middle of nowhere. (McNally's Fairvire Lodge) (did she grab a room there?)

    Trying to understand the lay of the land. (did she fall in the river?...)

    More here: http://kernriversierra.com/bike/whiskeyflat.html

    Where is the (salt of the) yurt???? :blushing:

    SERIOUSLY, where is Lauren?

    Was she even at the lodge or just her car turned up there?

    ETA: EmiLove - who posted the comments - LE?

    I'm intrigued by this lady because local as well. I haven't seen this lady on the news at all.

    I understood the article that she lived in the yurt in Lakeside, which is pretty rural San Diego. She packed it up and had it stored. Someone had to help her, yet no one knew what her plans were?

    The comments about the yurt were from her family members. But none seem to be posting about her since late Feb. Kind of strange?

    It sounds like she wanted to hike and camp in caves. Unfortunately there is so little info, we don't know if she is an experienced hiker? If she planned this trip or if it was spontaneous. I'm thinking had to be planned to take down and store a yurt.
