The “lost” female posted in the comments section, which I removed, saying she never was lost, it was simply a miscommunication, and she asked that this post be removed so her name does not come up in a Google search. Rather than remove it, I have removed any identifying information, and the photos, but left the post so that readers will know there was a happy ending to this story. She also stated she kept an eye out for Arvin in her travels.
Stan Russell asked me to post this:

****came to the area on Tuesday, September 16. She was going to the Mill Creek Road area. She had previously camped along Nacimiento-Ferguson Road and has a very worthy vehicle so she could be anywhere along the ridgeline of Prewitt Ridge and beyond. She called her sister from the Pacific Valley Ranger station pay phone on Sunday, September 21 letting her know her phone battery was dead and that she would be back on Tuesday, September 23.
