Vancouver, WA – A naked teen is missing after embarking on a “spiritual journey” with nothing more than a fanny pack around her waist.
Two search and rescue teams have been dispatched as of Monday morning in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, hoping to find the naked teen gone missing. She was last seen on Sunday walking away from a campsite, wearing only a fanny pack.
The 19-year-old woman told a friend of hers that she was setting off on some sort of “spiritual journey” when she left the Canyon Creek Campground at around 5 pm on Sunday, according to Dave Cox, the undersheriff of Skamania County.
“She was stark naked,” he said.
She was supposed to return that night but didn’t. Cox said that her friend reported the woman missing on Monday after midnight. Police did not release the identities of the witnesses.
The naked teen’s fanny pack contained a small knife, a compass, and other assorted items. Temperatures in the area dropped to the low 50s overnight.
“I don’t know if she took off on a trail or what,” Cox said.
The area, which is roughly 60 miles from Portland, is heavily wooded. According to Cox, two teams with about four or five people each will search the areas where she is most likely to be.
The sheriff’s office has asked communities nearby for more search and rescue volunteers. It’s not clear whether or not drug use was a factor in the naked teen’s “spiritual journey,” but we at IQ hope that search and rescue teams are able to return her safely.
