She was eating leaves of shrubs!
In the anguish of all those who sought her, Ioanna was put to an end twenty days after her disappearance. At dawn on Monday, May 15, 2017, the young woman struck out of the door of her father’s house in Menidi. Her sister who opened did not believe in her eyes. In front of her stood dirty, visibly tortured but alive, Ioanna.
As she told her relatives all this time, she was alone on the mountain and hiding inside a large bush to keep her cool. She claimed to have stayed there for days and did not find the strength to return from the panic attacks she was experiencing.
She had been able to fill some empty bottles with water while she was being fed by garbage that she found in the rubbish and with leaves.
Her sister told Angeliki Nikolouli all that Ioanna experienced during the days she was missing.
The young woman claimed that at some point she began to descend the mountain until she arrived at her father’s house. Then the blur in her mind broke up as this image was the only one she recognized.
