Missing Woman Searches for Herself

This hit my giggle bone and I have to share it.


‘Missing’ woman unknowingly joins search for


By Ron Recinto | The Sideshow – 7 hrs ago
A woman who was reported missing from an Icelandic tour unwittingly joined a search for herself.

According to the Reykjavik Grapevine, a woman described as “Asian, about 160cm, in dark clothing and speaks English well” was listed as missing Saturday near the Eldgjá volcanic canyon in southern Iceland.

A search continued through the weekend with reports saying she got off a tour bus and never returned.

It turns out the woman merely changed clothes during the bus stop, and after she returned, those on the bus didn’t recognize her.

When the description of the “missing” woman was circulated, apparently the lady who changed her outfit didn’t recognize the description of herself. So she joined the search party. (Read more here.)

    This made me giggle too. As I’m on my journey to “find myself,” I think this would be an appropriate post to add to my archives as well… thanks for sharing, Rebecca!

    Hmm…definite proof that one can find oneself.

    This post made me think of an old Far Side strip, where a lady cleaning her house is lifing up the cushions on her couch to clean underneath them, and there’s a man lying there under the cushions. The caption read: “George, so that’s where you’ve been!” :D

      Me too Manny. I told a friend about it at lunch and we laughed ourselves silly. It’s just plain funny.

    Well, I have heard people saying they need to find themselves – never thought to see someone do it literally :)

    Thank you, Rebecca, for liking my post ‘Get Over It.’ The humor you provide in this story of searching for something we already have was right on time for me. After spending the last month going back and forth to the hospital for my other half who had a mild stroke, I needed to smile. Please feel free to visit the rest of my posts, including ‘Give Me My Flowers While I Live,’ found at http://giveflowerswhileliving.wordpress.com/. I will return to read more.
