Margaret Page was found by members of the Mesilla Valley Search and Rescue team about one mile up the Railroad Canyon Trail in the Black Range, where she had gone hiking with her cat sometime between Feb. 10 and 12. She was transported by ambulance to Gila Regional Medical Center, malnourished and emaciated but well-hydrated, according to Dave Kuthe, who was the incident commander for the search. Kuthe said Page checked herself out of the hospital later Wednesday and spent the night in a Silver City hotel.

My cat use to follow me on walks it always ran through dense undergrowth while I walked on the path but it always knew where I was.

The article says that she told her mother she was going to Florida....
Sounds like she might need psychiatric evaluation. Also, she was only 20 yards off the trail and brought her cat some cat food that lasted 3 1/2weeks! Something is not normal about this at all, on top of the forestry department not paying attention. This is just one of those "What in the heck" stories.

Just found this story. You must read the article. She was missing for 3 1/2 weeks, she had her cat with her. There was a search team sent out. They located her car. She was found about 20 yards off a trail - in a blue sleeping bag (hard to miss that). Some controversy surrounding the towing of her car. An interesting story. I am glad she did not eat her cat :-)
I would bet her cat was thankfull as well, I wonder what sort of backpack the cat used?
