Found her in Echo Creek drainage.


The search for a missing woman in Yosemite National Park ended on Tuesday, August 14, 2007 when her body was located in the Echo Creek drainage, a rugged wilderness area southwest of Tuolumne Meadows.

Ottorina Bonaventura, 80, was reported missing by friends when she failed to return to the Vogelsang High Sierra Camp after a day-hike on Jul 30, 2007. Over 150 searchers from counties throughout California, the National Park Service, and DNC Parks and Resorts in Yosemite, Inc. participated in the search effort. Dog teams and helicopters were used as well.

The cause of death is still under investigation.

Where is the Echo Creek drainage? I was at Vogelsang about a week after she was found (very sad event).

It's south and between Vogelsang and Sunrise HSC's.
I believe this lady was on a day hike to the Merced Lake area. I think she got confused and took the route to the Sunrise HSC which may have led her into the Echo Lake drainage.
