Teenager Disappears Naked Into The Woods In Washington State


By Paul Johnson

Skamania County, Washington (CNN) - A missing teenager in Washington is exposed to more than just the elements.
Her friends say she was really exposed.
Search and rescue crews are looking for 19-year-old Maureen Kelly in the woods of Skamania County in Washington State.
Kelly's friends say she stripped naked and walked away from their campsite, Sunday afternoon.
She told friends she was going on a spiritual quest, walking through a creek and into the wilderness.
Seven hours later, they still hadn't heard from Kelly, so they called for help.
Her being barefoot actually helped trackers follow her steps, but they lost her trail when she climbed up to the road on the other side of the creek.
"Hypothermia is an immediate concern. Drowning is a concern. Walking naked on the road is a concern-- There are lots of concerns."
Crews are trying to find where Kelly may have left the road to re-enter the woods.
