Woman Who Disappeared Playing 'Pokemon Go' Found Dead


A woman in Australia who went missing while playing "Pokemon Go" was later found dead. Her death is not being treated as suspicious.

Catherine Stalker, 29, was reportedly out in the Brisbane area playing the mobile augmented reality game on July 22, but had not made any contact with family members since 1:30 p.m.

Family members went on social media to plea for help in finding Stalker. She was reportedly last seen wearing dark jeans and a purple flannel shirt, and has short dark purple hair according to The Courier-Mail.  

Her twin sister, Fiona Stalker, posted a message on Facebook later that night, asking other "Pokemon Go" players in the Brisbane and Gold Coast areas if they had seen the woman.  

She also requested help by contacting hotels in the area, believing that her sister may have checked into one that night.  Fiona revealed her sister had "taken over a gym" in the game and that her sister had been playing alone.

Fiona thanked the public for its support on July 24, and revealed that her sister had taken her own life.

"Our Cate has been found. She has taken her own life," Fiona wrote.

"Thank you to everyone who helped, we feel supported and loved. Please now care for yourself and those around you."

No further information has been released.
