Update from January 31.

So, the Sheriff's Dept. determined no crime was committed. Still no clarity as to whether she actually was lost in the woods for ~12 days. (Hint: I doubt it!)
Last week, Washington County Sheriff’s officials said that investigators were unable to find any evidence of fraud or any other criminal activity associated with the disappearance and subsequent rescue.

Meanwhile, Zion National Park authorities were also looking into the details surrounding the incident and will be releasing their final report on the case to the public as soon as they possibly can.
