The family of a woman who was missing in Utah’s Zion National Park for 12 days said she has been found and is safe.
Holly Courtier was dropped off at the Grotto parking area around 1.30pm on October 6 by a private shuttle bus.
She was scheduled to be picked up after 4.30pm but never arrived, according to local publications.
The 38-year-old was reported missing on October 8 and a frantic search began the next day.
Her sister, Jaime Strong, said Ms Courtier didn’t have her phone on her and had not told anyone of her plans.
Ms Strong created a GoFundMe to fund the rescue efforts.
Search crews found her alive on Sunday (local time) after receiving a tip from a park visitor who reported seeing her, National Park Service officials said.
Further details of the rescue were not immediately available.
Her condition is unknown, but Ms Strong said her sister “will need medical care in the days moving forward.”
The family said in a statement on GoFundMe that they were “overjoyed” the 38-year-old was found safely and thanked park rangers, volunteers and other members of the teams who searched for her.
