Young Ryle Gordon had always admired his stepfather Chris. The man was a total nature lover and had also made his stepson Ryle be enthusiastic to go on a wonderful forest walk together over the years. On a beautiful sunny morning, Chris decided to take little Ryle to the woods of the American Idaho. There, they would probably spot some wild deer together. However, the day would go differently than the two had expected. They were going to have a very exciting day.
The passionate walker he was, Chris had purchased a second home deep in the wooded area. He liked to come here. It was his starting place to go into nature. The log cabin was in the forests of Hayden. Every year he went to the place every so often. Even before the duo arrived at the house, they encountered a blockade. It was not far from the hut, but they could not continue their journey. There was a large group of people dr in orange vests. They were engaged in a search. One of the rescuers told Chris and Ryle that 19-year-old Katherine Ogle was missing. It was thought that the teenager would be somewhere in the wooded area. The problem was that the girl had the cognitive development of a ten-year-old, so it was necessary that she was found quickly. The 15-year-old Ryle was shocked. She was his age. He could not imagine that he would have to survive alone in the dense forest. He had partly grown up in this area, and was well aware of the dangers lurking in the woods.
Chris and Ryle decided to go into the forest, too. Although they had come for other plans, they also wanted to lend a hand in the search. They soon found a trail. They knew immediately that this could not have been done by a deer, goat or bear. A message was written in the ground. It said HELP in large letters right before their eyes. Could this have been a note left by Katherine? Perhaps the girl had written this into the ground after she realized she had gotten lost. Chris and Ryle immediately returned to the group and told them what they had found. Not long after, a helicopter arrived to check the area further, hoping to find the missing teenager. However, this proved to be ineffective and dusk was approaching already. It was too dark to continue the search. They had to wait until the next morning. Chris and Ryle looked at each other and wanted to continue. They felt that they were close to the girl and would not leave her to fate. Carrying flashlights, they went further. A few other people from the group also joined them. Right towards Chris’ log cabin. Perhaps Katherine had found it and had taken refuge there.
Their feeling did not seem to have betrayed them. Although the house was empty, it was as if someone had been there. Katherine had to be around! And so they started calling her name. That worked! They heard afar away voice further down in the darkness. They decided to go towards it quickly. They eventually found a sleeping bag nestled among the trees. The terrified Katherine was in it. The girl was very grateful. Circumstances did not end badly for the teenager. Of course, she was cared for and looked after by emergency workers, but she was in good health. Thanks to the message that Ryle and Chris had seen, they had gone in the right direction. And so luckily everything went well with the mentally challenged teenager!
