'Missing' woman joins search for herself

A woman holidaying in Iceland was unaware that the search party she had joined was looking for her.

The unnamed woman had been on a bus trip in the Eldgjá region when a tourist was reported missing, prompting the other passengers to form a search party. Wanting to do her part the woman decided to join them, hunting around the surrounding area for any sign of the missing person.

It wasn't until later that she realised that the individual the group had been trying to find was actually her - at the last stop she had changed her clothes, presumably confusing the others enough to believe that she had disappeared.

"A woman who was reported missing while holidaying in Iceland was oblivious to the fact that people were searching for her and even joined in the hunt herself."

Leave it to a woman to change her clothes. It's the men folk that were fooled!

I scared myself this morning when I walked into my bathroom and looked in the mirror. Different hair color, thought there was someone else in there with me. Totally understandable that people wouldn't notice at first.

She's Asian. I doubt blonde. Weird story. Why change clothes? I dunno, ppl are strange.

The woman said she had changed her clothes when the bus made a stop but passengers must not have realised it was the same person and reported her missing. The other passengers also failed to realise that a seemingly new person — who closely resembled the missing woman — had appeared on the bus and joined them in the search effort. To Westerners all Asians look the same I guess... But really I hope she learned her lesson and next time changes on the bus in front of others so as not to confuse anyone again. If so the following story is related (; http://www.chinasmac...ghai-metro.html
