Missing woman unwittingly joins search party for herself
Toronto Sun ^ | August 28, 2012 | QMI Staff

Posted on 08/28/2012 6:30:16 PM PDT by Squawk 8888

A group of tourists spent hours Saturday night looking for a missing woman near Iceland's Eldgja canyon, only to find her among the search party.

The group was travelling through Iceland on a tour bus and stopped near the volcanic canyon in the southern highlands Saturday afternoon, reports the Icelandic news organization mbl.is.

One of the women on the bus left to change her clothes and freshen up. When she came back, her busmates didn't recognize her.

Soon, there was word of a missing passenger. The woman didn't recognize the description of herself, and joined in the search.

About 50 people searched the terrain by vehicles and on foot. The coast guard was even readying a helicopter to help.

But the search was called off at about 3 a.m., when it became clear the missing woman was, in fact, accounted for and searching for herself.

It’s a fair-sized island, if you include the uninhabited areas, but it’s total population is that of a medium-large city, 310 thousand.

She must have been really dirty.

A group of tourists spent hours Saturday night looking for a missing woman near Iceland's Eldgja canyon, only to find her among the search party.

This reminds me of an incident that happened on a recent family vacation in Fiji. On one of our tours, the tour guides were waiting on a couple who had gotten lost on the way to the ferry boat. They kept making phone calls; all they could find out was that the couple had come from a certain resort and gotten lost. Finally, a couple sitting near us heard the name of the resort, and realized that they were the missing couple.

"I'm glad you finally made it!" another tourist told them.

> the world needs more searches for found people

I went to a psychiatrist. I’m not ashamed to admit it. It’s because I didn’t know who I was. He took one look at me and said right away, “This is not you.”

I said, “If this is not me, then who is it?”
He said, “I don’t know either.”

I said, “Then what do I need you for?”

He said, “To find out who you are.”

I said to myself, If I don’t know who I am, how do I know who to look for? And even if I find me, how do I know it’s me? Besides, if I want to look for me, why do I need him? I can look myself...I need a partner (”shutef”)? Ten years ago I’d be glad to look for anybody. Now I’m doing good. Why should I look for him? He needs help? Why doesn’t he look for me?”

He said, “The search for the real you will have to continue. That’ll be a hundred dollars, please.”

I said to myself, “If this is not the real me, why should I give HIM a hundred dollars? I’ll look for the real me. Let HIM give me a hundred dollars.

...But what if I find the real me and he doesn’t think it’s worth a hundred dollars? Then I’ve stuck my money with the real him.”

Then I said, “For all I know the real me might be going to another psychiatrist altogether. Might even be a psychiatrist himself. Wouldn’t it be funny if you’re the real me and you owe me a hundred dollars?”

I said, “I’ll tell you what. I’ll charge you fifty dollars and we’ll call it even.”

Couple of years ago some Red Head did something really stupid and she was waiting for me to say something.

I just shook my head and said “Not many ‘natural’ people dye their hair to a different color, most dye their hair blond”.

It went over her head for awhile and I don’t know if she figured it out or someone told her.

Lets just say I didn’t make her Christmas Card list.

BTW, yes I did notice Poppy Montgomery went from a Blond to a Redhead and IMNSHO, she looks better as Red.

Women are constantly going off to find themselves...sometimes to never be seen again.

The only "news" here is that one did actually manage to find herself.
