Search crews are scouring a Washington national park for this woman, Maureen Kelly of Vancouver. Kelly told friends she was going on a “spiritual quest” . . . in the woods . . . completely naked.
Maureen Kelly, 19, went missing early Sunday night from the Canyon Creek Campground in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in southwest Washington.
A friend told the Skamania County Sheriff’s office that Kelly left the campsite to go on a naked “spiritual quest” with nothing but a fanny pack, but she never returned.
Search crews are baffled at the naked hiker’s movements through the forest, located some 60 miles northeast of Portland. The area of the forest where she was last seen, Canyon Creek, is steep and mountainous with heavy timber and brush.
I hate to be so blunt, but in my opinion, Kelly is already dead. These stories never, ever end well, and considering her circumstances, she was probably dead within hours.
