Three naked German women found in woods

The naturist campers, 40, 50 and 56-years-old, wandered into the woods outside Karlshamn at around 4pm. Friends holidaying with the women raised the alarm when the nude ramblers failed to return to their cottage by Långasjön lake, newspaper Expressen reports.

Police deployed a helicopter and sniffer dogs to aid in the search but were quickly able to call off the hunt when the women returned to the cottage of their own accord at 10.30pm.

The women, who were naked when they set off on their stroll, told police they got lost shortly after leaving their lakeside cottage. They ended up groping around in the dark for the last hour of their wayward walk before eventually finding their way back to their naturist companions.

Aren't the Germans great :) not a bother in the wide earthly world in 'em.

Gotta respect the Swedes for not having the 72-hour rule found in other countries, for not forcing people to wait 3 days before a missing-persons report to be made. A lot of bad things can happen in 3 days, before the police decide to send out search parties.

And all I've ever found while wandering through the woods has been mushrooms.

40, 50 and 56. At least The Local had the good taste not to use pictures with this story.
21:38 August 2, 2010 by wxman
Naturally, years ago I would have agreed with you, Mr. Thornhill. However, today my appreciation for older women has modified somewhat. They may all have been attractive! Well, at least the 40 year old maybe?

This is just another day in Sweden. I love it.

Gee if they weren't nude would it be news?
00:05 August 3, 2010 by Mr Gee
Quite a humorous story.

It is not exactly elegant to go walking in the nude; for example the men will have 1/2 kilo of Bratwurst swinging about.

On second thoughts, maybe that's why they do it? hee hee

oh, I love that comment....I love that comment...hehehehehe :)

I read that nude hiking was becoming a popular thing in southern Germany. Maybe there is a potential for Sweden to advertise all the hiking trails it has and bring naked German hikers here.
11:25 August 3, 2010 by Michael84
We should encourage young folks to get naked and hike preferably don't get lost though ;)
13:40 August 3, 2010 by Rebel
Maybe we should encourage Americans to get into this -- they certainly need to work off those extra pounds.

A hunter found the naked ladies and asked them "So, are you game?" They said "Sure!" So he shot them. True story.

why does this news not have an accompanying photo section with it?

"They ended up groping around in the dark for the last hour of their wayward walk", ehehehe :-P
09:00 August 4, 2010 by Antonioparco
Afghanistan or Iran would be a good place for these obsessed Germans to go naked. :D
13:37 August 4, 2010 by Syftfel
Clearly this story was published, not because of its newsworthiness, but to invite the kind of adolescent commentary you see above. Have fun! But don't lose sight of the more significant matters such as the impending September elections. Three German broads in the buff pales compared to the consequences of a wrong vote.

"They ended up groping around in the dark for the last hour of their wayward walk..."

This line made the story. I'm sure Paul O'Mahony is proud of that one.

dont you love the part about the sniffer dogs? LOL

Safe to walk naked in Sweden. But do not do it in teh USA or else the cops will ignore it if three big guys jump oout of a car and beat the heck out of youy:

I wonder who found them first, the police or the mosquitoes =)
18:47 August 4, 2010 by Rebel
Mosquitoes are a problem here, but then again, naked hiking has advantages. For one thing, no need to have to wash dirty clothing afterwards, and another is that you can easily spot ticks if they get on you.

BTW, there is no actual law in Sweden banning naked hiking outside the city limits, is there? With a little PR push one might be able to get a trend going in Sweden.
22:53 August 4, 2010 by gwarbu2000
We in the UK know, from watching Wallender, that there are many freaks in Sweden. You need naked German women to provide a civilising influence just as we needed the Romans to introduce public baths, central heating etc to change us to the clean, warm etc people that we now are.
15:48 August 5, 2010 by judahsmommy
Wonder what they were on? I want SOME!
05:12 August 7, 2010 by för30årseden
Maybe they weren't lost. Maybe no one just really wanted to find them. If they had been 20 years younger, it might have been a different story.
06:22 August 7, 2010 by scorpion69
I wonder what they were doing the woods for so long. Having a nookie [sex]. If they were thats their business.
20:01 August 7, 2010 by Karenrae
Look around. I visited Sweden two years ago and saw a lot of people who need to walk the pounds off.
