    Details of Disappearance

    Kelly was last seen in Cougar, Washington on June 9, 2013. She was with a group of friends at Canyon Creek Campground in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest when she left them on foot, saying she was going on a "spirital quest" and would be back by midnight. She took off her shoes and all her clothes and was wearing only a fanny pack when she left. She was last seen at approximately 5:00 p.m. Her friends reported her missing in the early hours of June 10.

    An extensive search turned up no indication of Kelly's whereabouts. Authorities determined she crossed Canyon Creek and headed north, climbing upwards towards Forest Service 54, but they lost the trail after that. Although the weather on the day she disappeared was mild, temperatures that night dipped into the forties; without any clothes, she would have quickly succumbed to exposure.
