The woman, whose name has not been discloses, is now 52 years old, and was discovered near the town of Bolligen, where she has been living for the past year. She was said to have been using nothing more than an umbrella and tarpaulin for her shelter, proving that people can, and do, go to great lengths to go “ultralight” in the back woods. No word if she had cut off the handle on her tooth brush, or stripped out the frame on her backpack.
All kidding aside, it’s a remarkable story that someone who has been missing for this long has been found alive and well. Supposedly the wants no contact with her family, and has told authorities that she is on some kind of mission. (Okaaay!) Apparently she’ll be evicted from the land she is currently camping on however, and it’s uncertain as to what will happen to her going forward.
