BRIGHT police and SES volunteers mounted a search for a local woman who became disorientated after a fall on Diamatina Spur near Mt Hotham on Sunday.
Snowy Creek resident Paras Caloutas had decided to undertake some altitude training at Mt Hotham and said a short cut proved to be the wrong decision.
According to Senior Sergeant Doug Incoll, of Bright police, Mrs Caloutas left her car at the Diamatina Hut car park, Mt Hotham, to go for a run along the Razorback.
“She left the car park at around 7am and was running out to Federation Hut and back,” he said.
“At approximately 1.30pm she placed a call to her husband and told him she’d had a fall and was disorientated and didn’t know where she was.
Mrs Caloutas said she was training for the Buffalo Stampede and a wrong turn was when the trouble started.
