TRUTH !!
According to the Reykjavik Grapevine, the not-so-missing woman - a tourist -
even participated in the intense police search over the weekend, near Eldgja
canyon in the country's southern volcanic region.

The mix-up apparently occurred when, during a sight-seeing trip Saturday,
the woman broke off from her tourist group and changed clothes, the
Reykjavik Grapevine reported.

When she returned to the bus in a different outfit, the rest of her tour
group did not recognize her. Then when a description of the "missing person"
was offered - Asian, in dark clothing and speaks English well - the woman
seemingly also did not recognize the description as of herself, so she
began to assist the others in searching.

Hours later, around 3 a.m. Sunday, the search party finally realized that,
alas, the woman they were looking for was with them all along, and the
search was called off.
