    Naked woman on spiritual quest missing in Skamania Co

    The Skamania County sheriff's office has started a search for a missing camper.

    The 19-year-old was reported missing from the Canyon Creek Campground shortly after midnight.

    The woman was reportedly naked and had set out on a spiritual quest about 5 p.m., according to the sheriff's office. She had little in the way of supplies.

    Woman wearing only fanny pack missing in WA forest

    A search and rescue operation is underway for a woman wearing nothing but a fanny pack in the woods of Skamania County in southwest Washington.

    Skamania County Undersheriff Dave Cox said a friend reported the 19-year-old Vancouver woman missing in the early morning hours of Monday.

    snipped

    The woman was only wearing a fanny pack, which had a small knife and a compass inside, and perhaps some other items. She was otherwise naked and, though it was a mild night, she was not prepared for the elements.

    snipped

    The campground is located in Gifford Pinchot National Forest and it's about 60 miles northeast of Portland.

    A search is underway for a 19-year-old Pacific Islander woman who went missing from a Skamania County campground Sunday evening.

    snipped

    She was seen walking across a creek and into the woods but was not reported missing until about 1 a.m.

    Authorities were told this spiritual practice is common for the woman, whose name has not been released at this time.

    Last night it got down to the high 40's up there... I would think someone could easily succumb to hypothermia with no clothing on. Even if she knew to try and use groundcover to stay warm, much of it is still pretty damp, as well as the ground itself. It's been unseasonably nice weather here this past week, but it's cooling down again today.

    Weird....still pretty cold at night to be completely naked...hope she turns up safe. It would be really easy to get lost in the part of Washington as its very rural and dense trees. Can't imagine why you would go completely naked but not so strange I guess for WA....

    Did she have a phone or anything or any "specific place" she was headed in the area.

    Sometimes I get more creeped out by who might be lurking in the woods then the nature and animals themselves in some areas of Washington. A naked 19 year old female sure would catch the attention of anyone around.

    This is quite worrisome and odd. Best wishes for the missing young lady.

    Naked woman wearing a fanny pack on a spiritual quest in the woods? HUH? Well, ok. Does this woman have a picture? A name? Is she mentally unstable? This is just so bizarre.

    Hope she is found today.

    Hopefully she's been adopted by the wild animals, not eaten by them.

    The KGW link now says her name is Maureen Kelly from Vancouver. (I was pretty sure she wasn't actually from the Amboy/Yacolt area. Not too many local folks from there would walk around naked with no shoes.)

    Our summer nights in the woods here is freezing! Whenever I camp, I have to bring tank tops, shorts for the day along with sweats and sweatshirts just for the night. It is quite a striking difference. I hope she is ok! Could she have conditioned herself to be "used" to the cold nights? She is so young. Be found safe!

    Coincidentally, this case is playing out in the county directly north of Oregon's Hood River County, the site of discovery of an abandoned vehicle tied to a missing person - Daryn Collie - on another WS thread.

    I don't know much about spiritual quests except what I've read about native americans, who often use drugs during such quests. I hope she wasn't doing any drugs. Terribly naive post, I know... this is something I"m relatively unfamiliar with. Still can't get over what a strange headline this makes. I guess this should make national news pretty quickly this way at least.
