Hi All, my mum is walking the Camino Frances. Tricia S., 69 year old British lady from Dorset, walking the Camino alone. 5ft 6, short dark brown hair, green eyes, talks to anyone and everyone! We know she stayed in Viana on Tues night (17th April) and was due to reach Najera yesterday. We have heard nothing from her since Tues eve and this is very unusual. Has anyone come across her and knows if she's OK? We don't know if she's simply lost her phone (but she's not emailed or rung so am a bit worried). thanks for your help x

Moderator note:
The missing mum has been located and all is well!
For Privacy concerns.. Tricia's full name has been edited and her pictures deleted.

Just been through there and now in Burgos. WiFi has been difficult so maybe she hasn't been able to get on. Hope that is the reason. Keep us posted please.

I'm a few stages ahead so I wouldn't have seen her but I'll say if she doesn't check in today maybe you might consider messaging albergues with her photo in case they've seen her. Not all have WhatsApp, but some do so it's worth a shot. If you want a Spanish phrase to accompany the photo, I can provide a translation for you.

thanks for your offer of help - very kind. We have been calling the albuerge's where we think she could have stayed and the police have offered to help if we have no luck

I doubt if I can help but I will be in Logroño Sunday and along that stretch early next week. I'm sure the wifi will be the problem.

Hi there, myself and two others had dinner with Tricia in Viana. She was very well. Stayed at Albergue Municipal, albergue Andres Munoz. She was using a bag transfer company. We think Jacotrans. She had collected her bag in Viana from hotel Palacio Dr Pujadas. Hope all is well. Gerard

Not to upset you, but it's possible she just wants to disconnect for a while?
Many pilgrims do this while walking -- it's so nice not to have to use electronics/internet.
