Bushwalker found

By johnboy 6 September 2008 30

I’m getting reports in that the missing bushwalker (a 31-year-old Macarthur woman) in Namadgi National Park has been found “alive and well”.

More details as they come to hand.

UPDATED: The ABC report is now online.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Thanks to PlaneGuy for the link. News reports that it’s one Karina Scott who was rescued.

    She was wearing just shorts, a top and a lightweight waterproof jacket and had no sleep for the three nights of below zero temperatures…

    Mr Brewer said Ms Scott was found near the main track, the Nursery Creek Swamp Trail, from where she set out.

    “We understand that she may have been walking off an old map. She may have gone off on a track that was no longer in use,” he said.

    “We think she had been walking in circles for days.”

No compass then?

FURTHER UPDATE: The AFP’s media release on the subject has now made an appearance.

I’m so glad she was found – I was wondering whether it was one of those murder cases where the spouse did it – and in this case may have chosen a ‘bushwalk’ as a foil. Sorry, husband of missing person!

Ditto… I bet the AFP are specially relieved for this reason!

You are such a bleeding heart, peterh!

Ugg boots, indeed! Give them a boot and they’ll be taking a shoe.

ugg boots so that she can fit right in to the neighborhood.

I never said she should hike in them, but vikings did ok….

it is great that she’s found, but i never though that a couple of nights in Namadgi would kill her, frankly. (unless she was injured, which she wasn’t.)
i don’t mean to be petty or play down what must have been an awful experience for her but how long will the canberra times front page this? isn’t there any news? and my god, she was wearing “thin cotton pants”?? they should have looked closer at their own photo because those are definitely jeans…
ok, shoot me down 🙂

Haven’t you heard that Alcohol is good for hypothermia?

in Namadgi, when the ground is frozen, you will die, without alcohol.

alcohol lowers your core temp, you don’t know, and you die.

even in summer, if you are at booroomba rocks, it is still colder than anything before the sun comes up. then you bake.

if she was incapacitated, we wouldn’t be hearing of her survival. The fact that she managed to walk around, ensured that she was able to regulate her core temperature.
