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.

"One criterion for climbing a peak is that you should gain a vertical height under your own power equal to your peak's rise from its highest connecting saddle with a neighbor peak...Beyond this minimum gain, you are free to gain as much altitude as your peak-bagging conscience requires." - Gerry Roach, "Colorado 14ers" :wink:

Moral of this (and another very recent) story: crowdfunding is for everyone, for fun and profit!
