The missing woman’s motivation for living in the park was for “solitude and isolation,” Mr Cannon told Fox News.

However, he said the woman opened the zipper of her tent immediately when the search team stumbled upon her and willingly spoke to the rescue team.

Detectives said she was found alongside camping equipment and items that formally identified her.
