    Poor lady- I hope she is found soon! How scary, especially at night.

    I wonder how far the trail is from her vehicle?

    At least she had a phone with her and was able to call for assistance. Hope they are able to find her. Her car has not been found either?
    Looks like Sandbank Road leads to Buttermilk Falls State Park with serval hiking trails visible. Seems a like destination if that is the road she was on.

    Here is a map of Sandbank and the State Park.
