A brief note left on the pack could be helpful. Just "Pack was noted here (date/time), hope there's no problem." would at least cause great concern on the part of the next hiker to see it the next day.

I stole a guys GPS once. It was sitting on a post, because it was soaking wet when it hadn't rained since last night I assumed it had been found and placed visible some time ago, lesser-used trail so I took it. I was able to find the guy's phone number on the GPS and called him. Turns out he had dropped it in the water and laid it there to dry while checking out the shore.[:I] Hey, guy whose name I can't recall: Really sorry about that, it was truly done with the best intentions. And you do have your GPS back.

Helping the search was very theraputic in several ways, and this all was harsh but very eye opening. It does help knowing more details on what transpired beyond the very incomplete information in the media.

I'll be back on the mountain again tomorrow, and it will be because that's where I like being. Helping SaR is an added bonus, and is something I've wanted to do for several years.

I often drop my pack to climb a steep peak, but finding one on a trail seems strange.

What happened with this? Was the hiker found?

After a massive search effort spanning several weeks, unfortunately she has not been found.

If I realize that I forgot something behind, I'll typically drop my pack right on the trail to go back and get the item that I forgot.
