her body as been found, didn't know anything about until yesterday, my daughter told me last night about her parents flying out to help search. They were trying to raise £20k to continue the search, she was a freind of my youngest. Can't imagine what state the parents are in. l was alway worried when my girls went back packing for a couple of years to a state were l got a £800 phone bill one month. Iguess others have had kids travel and been equally worried. They think they know everything but they don't. Sad news for me to hear first thing this morning, any of us could be in Stephanies parents shoes but for the grace of god.

Awful news. It sounds like she got lost, tried to swim across a creek and drowned. Horrendous for her family.

it hit home because of my daughters, especially that it was one of mines freinds. Its a done thing for young people to go traveling now and most parents are worried because they were only kids a few years before. l knew what the outcome was gonna be when l first heard, she was big into hiking.

Terrible news, always best to go with a guide or at least with someone else who can raise an alarm, but easy to say with hindsight.

Kids think they're bulletproof, parents tend to be overprotective.

My brother is travelling in New Zealand currently and it hits home. Albeit he’s 38 and doing it the posh way. I hitched around New Zealand when I was 20 and it’s a beautiful place. My mate and I went to the blue mountains in Sydney for 2 days which ended up being 4 as we got lost, ran out of water, had to drink from a stream that had ‘bad water’ on the map. We were very lucky to get out and could have been in a similar situation to this poor young lady and the family.
