This is amazing:
Two weeks after Doris Anderson disappeared while on a hunting trip with her husband, the 76-year-old lay next to a creek surrounded by thick brush, alone and with no food or supplies.
Rescue teams had been through the mountainous area but found no sign of her. Knowing that she was only lightly clothed in temperatures that had dipped into the 30s at night, they had scaled back the search nearly a week earlier.
But they hadn’t given up.
On Thursday, a day after a sheriff’s deputy asked Anderson’s husband once again how the couple had become separated in the woods, the deputy and others returned to an area they had checked before and found her, alive, alert and in surprisingly good condition.
“We just asked her if she was hurt and talked to her about her family,” Trooper Chris Hawkins said Friday as Anderson recovered in a hospital from dehydration and a hip injury.
Doris Anderson is one tough cookie. Period.
