    No water? Huh? My coworker was going to hike this trail Memorial Day weekend and told me that they were so hot that they turned around. She said its about an hour and a half hike (or more) 1 way.
    I don't understand not taking water unless they thought the hike was super short. I don't even drive to work or the grocery store here (Las Vegas) without taking water (in the summer).

    Christina's FB: https://www.facebook.com/christina.montes.739

    This story is just bizarre. I have so many questions. What was Christina's connection to the late Mr. Johnson? Friend? Relative? Boyfriend?

    http://lasvegas.cbslocal.com/2014/06/16/search-fails-to-find-missing-hiker/#.U6I-lSmp7CE.facebook

    So who told LE she was hiking with Johnson? Did someone actually see her with him at the trailhead, or did she tell someone they planned to go hiking there together, or what?

    http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jun/16/woman-missing-after-search-near-colorado-river/

    It was a 3-mile hike but they (or he) hauled a tent and sleeping pad in there, but no water? Did she ride there on the motor scooter with him or was she driving a separate vehicle? How did they haul their gear there from Henderson if they were both on the scooter?

    There's a map of the trail here with warnings, notes on difficult spots, and various other features:

    http://www.nps.gov/lake/planyourvisit/upload/Arizona-Hot-Spring.pdf

    If Christina did make the hike with Johnson, where did she go? Into the river? If she was never on that trail, then what happened to her? And why was her purse left at his house?

    This is indeed an odd case. And it seems to fallen completely off the radar. As of June 16th it seems they are no longer looking for her in the park.

    Also from the InsideHenderson link:
    I can't find any indication that his COD has yet been disclosed. But I'm not a particularly good sleuther.

    wow; why on earth was her purse left in His household? If her purse is left in his household, then where is she? This is most bizarre...did she have any active warrants, anything to possibly show a reason why she would try to disappear? And we need to know his COD like did he OD on something...5'2 100 lbs is very thin. Why isn't the media covering her story? Were the kids dropped off with her mom first before the hike and she knew they had little food and water? If his motor scooter was found there...did they do dna to SEE if she even rode on it...such wasted time..more than a month now.

    Thanks, PastTense. That article answers one of my questions: "Vanover confirms Johnson died from methamphetamine overdose. Frazier says her daughter did struggle with drugs."

    She could have panicked and run after he died but her mother believes Christina is dead and the private investigator who's volunteering his services says he's been tracking down people in the "drug world" that Christina and her friend may have had contact with and those people's stories "aren't adding up."

    I hope they give more details about where she was found compared to where her companion was found.

    I can make out "China" on the inside of the ring shank, not that that narrows it down much.

    Both sets of remains were identified. One (I think this one) was Christina Montes, other was a fisherman from a boat that capsized in February: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/nov/3/coroner-ids-body-found-in-lake-mead-in-mid-october/

    Also, this article http://www.mynews3.com/content/news...ts-to-ID-two-sets/dGNsdU1GuE-1kHksWuiaFQ.cspx mentions that Christina's mother identified the ring as hers. Maybe they're just leaving it up on NamUs while the DNA runs, but this UID has been identified.
