Questioning the asylum-seekers has led to news about Shawn, Tina, & the rest of the missing people who went east in the Millennium Mallard.
08:36 AM #
The asylum-seekers heard stories of how a zompocalypse-modded tourist duck escaped from a Cannibal Gang raiding party a few weeks ago...
08:39 AM #
The Cannibals tried to to capture the Mallard intact, but their caution allowed it to escape (amphibiously crossing a river, naturally).

The Cannibals and Shawn played a cat-and-mouse game for many hours until he drove into the dead city of Appleton. This could be good or bad.
08:46 AM #
Appleton & surrounding cities were hit hard by more natural plagues of old in the months after the zombie plague struck. So many died there.

That's why the Cannibals gave up their chase. Shawn and I barely survived our time near there last winter. He knew it was their only chance.
08:51 AM #
So, either Shawn and the others died in Appleton or they're alive and quarantining themselves somewhere. I doubt they're still there.

Pete has recalled the radio relay team and the other scouts we have out in the eastern territories. It's too dangerous out there right now.

Shawn will either make it back here or he won't, but at least we have a good idea what happened and what his plan is to return safely.
