The group of men that found her say, "We found fresh footprints,goods, shell piles, and finally,her. When we found her, she spoke to us in an unknown language. We think it was a frightened greeting and hope she isn't too scared." "Thank you, men. We are glad Karana is alive and well after being on San Nicholas Island for eighteen whole years. It must have been very lonely."

They could not find her so a couple years later they paid two people, a fisherman and his friend named Charlie Brown. They were searching the island and saw a footprint in the sand so they knew she was alive.When they were walking and they saw a basket full with handy work tools. They turned around and saw Karana was scared because she had not seen people for 18 years. She figured out that these were the people to come and get her. They took her to their boat and sailed off to her homeland and she hopefully lived happily ever after. By Griffin Macer
