Here is the last update posted on the closed GET. This confirms what I've suspected or that HC has suffered from mental issues in the past and ventured off to Zion NOT IN THE BEST FRAME OF MIND.
The update also acknowledges the inconsistencies reported by media.
Take note that the family is offering refunds to anybody that asks and/or encourages donors to contact GET them for the same.
Also, the Original GET text and all 5 updates posted in the quote above.
For whatever reason, I don't think this update will satisfy some readers.
Sorry for all that remain offended by HC and her family.
We understand many of you have questions regarding Holly’s search and rescue. The below article will address many of those questions:
Sister of missing Zion hiker says her survival without food and water was 'a miracle'
Holly has suffered from mental health issues in the past and went on her hike not in the best frame of mind. She did not intend to become injured or so weak on her journey. Nor, did she intend for her trip to become a search and rescue effort. If Holly was not found when she was, she would have died.
The intent of Holly’s Go Fund Me has always been to aid the search and recovery efforts as well as post recovery care. In order to provide as much transparency as possible, I am detailing what your donations will be used for:
• Funds will be used to reimburse the family and friend's costs in searching for Holly. (Such as; hotels rooms, equipment purchased to look for Holly, car rentals, and food for search parties. • A separate bank account will be opened up to reimburse these individuals. • A remainder of the donations will be used to cover the medical care applied to Holly during her hospital stay as well as therapy costs moving forward.
We appreciate everyone’s continued support. This fundraiser is, and always was, 100 percent legitimate. However, we acknowledge and respect people’s concerns over the many inaccuracies portrayed by the press and social media regarding Holly’s ordeal. Whomever has concerns about our use of their donation is welcome to request a refund without any objection from the family. You may do so by contacting Go Fund Me and go through their refund process.
