German Barbara Elisabeth Monica Gallagang, 75, has disappeared for at least seven days after leaving her hotel room on May 9 for a walk. The woman, who was said to have had Alzheimer’s disease, was left without food or drink and did not return. Her life was frightening until a young boy told his family that he had found an old woman in the woods.
Barbara disappeared on May 9 in Phuket, southern Thailand, after going for a walk “to a hut on the mountain”. The 75-year-old woman, who was said to have Alzheimer’s disease, was left without food or drink and did not return. Then the police were called.
A large-scale search is launched with many volunteers and helicopters to scan the mountains for signs of the old lady. Unfortunately, no trace of it was found.
Seven days passed and people began to fear for Barbara’s life. After all, Sirinat National Park, where she disappeared, is a forested area where many poisonous snakes, lizards and other dangerous animals live.
However, Barbara was miraculously found alive on May 16, seven days and nights after her disappearance. Remarkably, finding her was not from the police, but rather a young boy living nearby. He saw Barbara lying exhausted in a stream of water providing cooling. After all, the temperature was 35 degrees during the day.
The boy came home and told his family, after which the police were called again. They now confirm that the woman was found alive and in good health. “She was taken to the hospital for a medical examination. A German interpreter was also called to see what the woman had been doing for seven days.” According to local police, the stream of water saved Barbara’s life: “She kept her calm.”
