  After searching for several hours, we did not find the grotto, so we decided to head back out and go search where she came out of the woods on the third day. And work backwards!

Area Searched on 9/16/21 with Theresa, Glen and Danny

  On 11/11/21, I decided to go in seach for the grotto, on my own, just to eliminate some of the vast area, yet to be searched.
With a lot of luck, I found the grotto that Theresa spent two nights. Her camera tripod was still under the grotto.
