Woman Lost In Woods For 28 Days Describes How She Survived

Woman Lost In Woods For 28 Days Describes How She Survived

A woman who disappeared in the American wilderness has revealed how she was forced to survive on just berries and wild mushrooms for 28 days, before people finally came to her aid.

Lisa Theris was finally rescued by a driver in a forest in Midland, Alabama, following a huge search after she ran away from two criminals, to avoid being complicit in a burglary.

Watch her talking about her experience here:

She lost three and a half stone, was sunburned and had no shoes by the time she was discovered.

Speaking on This Morning, the partially blind 25-year-old explained: "The last two days I was out there, I started to hear a road, and knew I was close so started going in different directions.

"I couldn't be there any longer, had to get out.

"Finally when I found the right direction and saw that road, it was amazing. You couldn't imagine the feeling.

"When I got to it, it was a big hill top I had to climb, I climbed and climbed."

A woman called Judy Gardner found Lisa.

She said: "I'm so lucky to have found the perfect person. She fed me, clothed me, gave me water and stayed with me until the ambulance came.

"It was a miracle. It worked out perfect."

She was first reported missing on 23 July.

Now Lisa has been reunited with her family, and sister Elizabeth said: "She is severely weakened, she is in pain, she is emaciated. There is not an inch of her that has not been affected."

Her brother Will took to Facebook following Lisa being discovered.

He wrote: "28 days stranded out in the wilderness and Lisa is still standing, strongest person I know.

"She is standing strong and full of jokes as ever. The next few weeks will be rough."

An amazing story.
