Just checking the Maura thread and with allllll the discussion this has had over the years I also wonder if this in the end might be the case. Being a New Englander and living in the woods and having lost things never to find them is so possible. The amount of trees and leaves that fall every season are alot and they cover everything. She/her body could very well have been missed. She could also be in a rocky crevice where she crawled in to try and stay warm. If she is hidden well enough it could be years or might never happen. Hunters are usually the ones every fall that come upon them. But I keep hoping someday we will know.
