There are some small things anyone can do to ensure they get home safely if travelling alone

Travel blogger Megan Singleton has shared her tips after the story broke that an American college student was found dead after reportedly getting into a vehicle outside a bar she mistakenly thought was her Uber ride.

Police say 21-year-old University of South Carolina student Samantha Josephson from New Jersey was last seen getting into a car outside a bar in Colombia's Five Points entertainment precinct.

On Saturday, authorities announced that her body was found by turkey hunters in a rural spot in nearby Claredon County.

Hours later Nathaniel David Rowland, 24, was arrested after being pulled over by officers driving the same car she had been last seen in.

Singleton told Francesca Rudkin that she has not been able to get the story out of her mind, as it could have been anyone.
