Looking for a Specific Weird Adventure Seed

The fog of age seems especially thick this morning; perhaps you can help.

I vaguely recall an adventure seed that appeared is some modern horror rpg supplement from the past five or six years. It involved the discovery of a pale, almost feral girl in the foothills of a local mountain chain. She gets brought back to civilization, gets examined and tested, and ultimately escapes back into the wild. It later turns out that she is a survivor or descendent of a group of school children who got buried in a cave system or fallout shelter in the mountains—and there’s a whole passel of them still out there. Does this strike anyone else’s memory bell?

I thought it appeared in White Wolf’s Mysterious Places, but a quick perusal of that didn’t find it. It might be in another WW book or in a modern CoC supplement, but I can’t remember for certain. I’m pretty certain I didn’t make this one up on my own—it’s a bit off the beaten trail even for me—but I could be wrong…

EDIT: It's "The Girl from the Snow" located in the back of WoD Asylum for those playing along at home.

That sounds like "The Damned", a Hammer film from 1963. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Damned_%281963_film%29

Looks intriguing and I'll have to keep an eye out for it on TCM.

However, I did find the scenario I was looking for buried in the back of WoD Asylum. I knew it was a WW book. Thanks for the heads up on The Damned, though. I missed that particular Hammer film.

"The Damned" is a superb, albeit very depressing, film. Available on DVD with 4 other little-known Hammer thrillers.
