Search to resume Saturday for teen who went hiking naked
STEVENSON, Skamania County — Searchers will be out again beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, looking for clues into the whereabouts of a Vancouver, Wash., woman who set out naked in a forest Sunday on a spiritual quest.
Maureen Kelly, 19, walked away from the Canyon Creek Campground just after 5 p.m. Sunday carrying only a knife and a fanny pack. She was reported overdue before daylight Monday.
Rescuers combed the area Monday and Tuesday but found no signs of Kelly, other than some bare footprints near a creek. They temporarily suspended the search Tuesday evening.
According to Skamania County Undersheriff Dave Cox, about 50 certified search volunteers will fan out Saturday morning from the command post, at the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument headquarters in Amboy, Clark County.
