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.
