An American woman who vanished in a Utah ravine six months ago was found alive. She survived all this time in a tent her grandmother and on a diet of moss and grass.
The 47-year-old Utah woman, whose name has not been released by local authorities, was reported missing as early as November 25, 2020. A park ranger found her abandoned car in a Spanish Fork Canyon parking lot and wanted to warn her against closing the park, but no one He can access it. Despite the research, no effect was found for women. She did not have a family, but had mental health issues, according to her co-workers.
On Sunday, there was a breakthrough in the case, after a non-profit organization launched a new investigation. It paid off: a volunteer bumped into the woman, who apparently survived all this time in a tent she found in the garden.
According to the local police, the woman “has weakened and lost significant weight, but she has proven that she has a great deal of resourcefulness.” It appears she ate a small amount of food with her when she disappeared, but then survived on a diet of grass, algae, and water from a nearby river. The woman had also received food from passers-by. “We are now convinced that she herself decided to stay in the area. Many people would not choose to live in the same conditions, but she did not do anything illegal.”
