About Maureen (Anu) Kelly's case

Primary Source: Daily Mail

According to Daily Mail.com, Authorities are searching for a Washington woman who was last seen walking away from a campground in nothing but a fanny pack to go on a ‘spiritual quest’. Maureen Kelly, 19, went missing early Sunday night from the Canyon Creek Campground in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in southwest Washington, according to KPTV. 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. Crews searching for Kelly believe she crossed a creek from the campground, climbing to the other side of the canyon. ‘Where she entered the creek is amazingly steep. It’s called Canyon Creek Campground for a reason,’ Sharon Ward of Pacific Crest Search Dogs told KPTV. ‘It’s very, very steep. So how she got down there barefoot is a wonder. And how she came up out of the bottom is a wonder.’ After the paved road, the Kelly’s tracks stopped. On Monday the search team attempted to find where Kelly left the path and entered the woods. ‘Where she entered the creek is amazingly steep.
