The Marshals confirmed that they were aware of the location as part of the manhunt but stopped short of confirming the camper’s account – and would not confirm reports that Armstrong may have assumed her sister’s identity.

“We don’t know if she was actually at that specific location,” Deputy US Marshal Brandon Filla told Fox News Digital. “There are many possibilities, but we have to have facts.”

The address cropped up on property records in connection with Christine Armstrong, 31, on May 17, a source told Fox News Digital Tuesday. It is about a 2-hour, 20-minute drive from Newark Liberty International Airport, where Armstrong was last seen on May 18. It is roughly the same distance from LaGuardia Airport, where police say she landed after a flight from Texas days earlier.

A woman who answered the phone at the camp said she was not authorized to comment.

Investigators allege that Armstrong followed her longtime boyfriend, Colin Strickland, 35, while he was out with Wilson, 25, in Austin on May 11.

Austin police questioned and released Armstrong before she flew to New York’s LaGuardia Airport on May 14. That same day, an anonymous caller told Austin police that Armstrong had recently obtained a handgun. Months earlier, according to the tipster, she allegedly grew furious after learning that Strickland was involved in a romantic relationship with Wilson. Police said one of two 9 mm handguns recovered at Strickland’s home was “significant to the investigation.”

By May 18, according to investigators, she was dropped off at Newark International Airport in New Jersey, just outside of New York City.

The trail went cold from there.

“Kaitlin Armstrong is accused of a very serious crime that she needs to answer for,” US Marshal of the Western District of Texas Susan Pamerleau said last week. “The best thing she can do at this point, wherever she is, is surrender to the authorities, so she can return safely to Austin and answer the charges against her. She needs to know the Marshals are not going to stop looking for her.”

She is considered armed and dangerous.
