I think it was North Carolina....Pisgah National Forest.

If you are thinking of John and Irene Bryant, the elderly Colorado couple who disappeared in late October, then you're correct. It was the Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina, about 150-170 miles north of Vogel State Park. Vogel is the area of the AT where Meredith disappeared.

The body of Irene Bryant was found three weeks later. She had been beaten to death. John Bryant is still missing.

From Pisgah, the story headed to Ducktown, Tennessee, about an hour from Vogel. A surveillance tape captured images of a man in a yellow coat using the Bryant's ATM card. The yellow coat is thought to have belonged to John Bryant.

At the beginning of the search for Meredith, it was reported she was last seen with a man and a second dog - and the man was wearing a yellow coat.

My wife and I hike a lot in the area where the Bryants were murdered. There are an awfully lot of remote places out there where skulduggery would be extremely easy. Also, there are Wiccans, Satanists and druggies who hang around in these woods for their own various reasons - none of them wholesome. We completely avoid the area in the days around Halloween (we have seen clear evidence of rites).

I am always "visibly" armed and careful of anybody I meet out there. There is no sense calling 911 when out there (just ask the Bryants, who tried). Most people you run into are good people but one never knows when or where you will meet a bad one and they may not appear "threatening" (although the one time my alarm bells got working really overtime, they certainly were).

The woods may be a place for solitude but it is not a place where you want to let your guard down, either.
