Found! Briton lost in Brazil was ‘connecting to nature’
A BRITISH woman missing in remote southern Brazil for nearly a week was found yesterday – and admitted getting lost deliberately to connect with nature.
Katherine Brewster, 27, was exhausted, starving and unable to walk when found ‘ dreaming’ on a riverbank by a search party.
Photos posted online showed her in an emotional embrace with a friend, thought to be the owner of the home where she was staying.
Miss Brewster, from Brighton, had been based near the tiny village of Dom Jose. Fears grew when she did not return after heading barefoot into the bush on Sunday. She had not told her hosts and had taken only her credit card and passport, leaving her phone behind.
Police feared she had fallen in a nearby reservoir, been attacked by animals or abducted. But she told the Mail: ‘It was a divine calling to connect with the morphogenetic field... I let myself be bitten by mosquitoes and bees and for a moment I thought about giving up, but the divine guided me to follow.’ Last night her family said they were delighted she had returned.
What a relief: Miss Brewster greets her friend yesterday
