The woman attempted to walk home after drinking with friends, but she got lost and disoriented. She was able to call a friend for help however they were unsuccessful in guiding her home. Friend’s then went out looking for the woman, but they were only able to locate her cell phone and one shoe near the roadway where they had tracked her phone.
