(YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, CALIF.) - Rescue crews have stopped looking for an elderly Indiana woman who disappeared in the park the last month.

A spokeswoman says they have ended the search for 80-year-old Ottorrina Bonaventura of Schererville, Indiana.

Bonaventura -- who had a history of memory loss -- was last seen July 30th when she left her hiking group near Emeric Lake to return to her tent at a camp in the high sierra.

More than 150 searchers as well as tracking dogs and volunteers from the National Park Service took part in the initial search.
