Can you post her name and description?
Where you would think she should be about now?

Perhaps someone can report seeing her....I really would not worry.
It is some times very difficult to keep in contact. wiFi is not always available.

Sometimes you are just too tired to check in and most of us do not realize that it can cause worry to those back home.

Oh, Thank you so much for replying!

Her name is Alina and she is petite in stature. About 5'3" and 115 pounds. She has long blondish brown hair and will be backpacking with two lightweight hiking poles.

Sunday, June 26th she was leaving Belorado and hoping to be in Burgos in two days and maybe taking a day or two rest in Burgos before continuing on to heal her blisters. She may have been travelling with 2 other women to Burgos. I am just worried for her safety, I understand there can be theft or worse occasionally along that Camino.

Good parents always worry, we watch over our young but we can't always make choices for them. Sometimes when we don't hear from them it is good because they are busy. If we hear too frequently they are spending too much and not enjoying their freedom. As parents we are also learning, trust. Enjoy her calls....... Ultreya......... Willy/Utah/USA

4 days isn't a lot of time to be out of touch when you are young ;-) Have you checked her social media accounts? Young people tend to update them more regularly than they think of updating their parents ;-) The Camino is safer than a lot of places/towns elsewhere in the world. Also, have you agreed on a regular 'contact schedule' with her? Or not?
Buen Camino, SY

The day's pilgrimage into Burgos is a bit tricky actually and perhaps she got in late. Depending on where she spent the previous night it can also be a very long day's walk.
I probably shouldn't write this - because it won't ease your mind - but that area was known for its wildness and danger. Of course that was in the 12th century so you needn't be concerned now.

I must say though - to be honest - that it is more isolated than some other portions of the Camino and no where in the world is perfectly safe (including your hometown no doubt). Prayers for her safe Camino and soon coming contact. Please keep us updated.

Well, the "Diario de Burgos" (which is in the province capital) does not report anything alarming, besides a female German pilgrim that was reportedly disappeared (she was located the same day, and nothing was amiss). This same report gives the impression that the security and safety services are very careful about any report of lost pilgrims (three teams from Guardia Civil and Protección Civil were sent to search for her....).

The Camino in this month is not lonely; actually it is very busy, even crowded.
I hope all ends well.

Ok ... Is that normal for her? Does she usually keep you up to date on her whereabouts or not? Also, looking at your name, is English your native language? I ask because we are an international community here and could post your question on a number of forums/message boards and the like. If you want to have help with that - just ask! SY

I just finished the section to Burgos on Thursday and met a young woman who fits that description. I cannot remember her name though. Does she have a Russian or similar accent? If so, I saw her in Granon earlier this week and at the municipal pilgrims albergue in Burgos on Thursday evening and Friday morning. She was having a great time!

I think she is American ... (?)

A picture of Alana would help, Ronald Siegrist. Pilgrims who have met her, will recognize her. Or maybe, if this is her, then she has already been recognized. :))))

thank you. she actually studied Russian in St. Petersburg Russia while attending college at Stetson University. That would be approximate location and she does have a Russian first name. Alina.
