Found! Bri­ton lost in Brazil was ‘con­nect­ing to na­ture’

Daily Mail - - News - By Josh White and Matt Roper

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
