Girl Who Went Missing For A Month In Alabama Wilderness Found Alive

Girl Who Went Missing For A Month In Alabama Wilderness Found Alive

A student who went missing in the Alabama wilderness a month ago has been found alive, the Daily Mail reports.

Lisa Theris, 25, got lost among the dense forest without shoes or shelter, and had to eat berries and wild mushrooms to keep herself alive.

Without her phone or purse she had no way of contacting anyone, and so her disappearance had become a cause for concern.

She was found by a woman who saw movement in bushes from her car near Highway 82, after Lisa was able to find the wood line, according to the Mail.

The radiology student had lost 50 pounds and was covered in scratches and bug bites.

After Lisa was found, Sheriff Raymond Rodgers received a call from the passing woman. He told WFSA: "She called us and told us she had located the missing person. Finally the young lady has been found and she's alive."

Until then a multi-county search had been ongoing since July 23.

The student was reportedly with two men who broke into a hunting lodge in Midway, Alabama. She was unaware of their intentions to do so and so she left the area so she was not involved in the robbery.

"She's not familiar with this area and apparently on the night she ran, she went into the woods at night and got lost," said Sheriff Rodgers.

The two men, Manley Davis, 31, and Randall Oswald, 36, were reportedly arrested for allegedly stealing $40,000 (£31,000) worth of items that included ATVS (quad bikes) and chainsaws.

Before being found, Theris said that she had ended up going round in circles due to lack of food. She said she was forced to eat wild berries and mushrooms, as well as drinking from brooks and puddles.

"We didn't ask her too many questions," said Sheriff Rodgers. "We want to make sure her health is good so we got her on to the hospital. We did not interrogate her at that time."

Sergeant Chad Faulkner added: "We don't have the total details on everything yet. We wanted to make sure her health was in the best shape and in the days to come, we'll get some answers. She's alive and that's all that matters at this moment."

Theris has since been reunited with her family in Louisville and is slowly beginning to recover.

"She is severely weakened, she is in pain, she is emaciated," said her sister, Elizabeth. "There is not an inch of her that has not been affected.

"We are lucky that she is alive, she is so strong and has made it through so much."

Luckily, according to her brother, Will, she is able to make jokes and get through the pain.
