The group she was with had completed its missionary work and was spending several days at a resort before heading home.

Colclough went for a walk Thursday afternoon and did not return.

Her brother Michael, who lives ins Meredith, N.H., told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 it is not known what happened.

“I’m told that a local farmer saw her walking through a cane field toward some cliffs,” he said. “She had her Bible and a journal and camera with her and that’s all we know at this point.”

Michael Colclough said divers and dogs are searching for his sister with more help on the way.
