Woman Found Alive in National Park a Week After Going Missing

A woman missing for over a week in Big Bend National Park in south Texas has been found alive.

Christy Perry, 25, was located after a massive search in the 800,000-acre park.

"The hiker has been successfully found. She is currently en route to the hospital in Odessa, TX," Big Bend spokesperson Tom VandenBergs said.

"Perry was reported missing after she did not show up for her Nov. 9 reservation at a campground inside the park," Fox News reported.

"We are pleased to report a successful search and rescue operation in Big Bend National Park," Big Bend National Park shared on Facebook.

"Our highly skilled team, in collaboration with outside law enforcement, has located and safely rescued the missing hiker," it added.

No other details have been shared regarding what took place to cause Perry to remain out of contact for several days in the national park.

The missing person was transported to a local hospital in Odessa with no report of any injuries shared with the public.

The search escalated after her rental car was found at the head of the park's Lost Mine Trail.

The trail was closed, with K-9 search and rescue teams traveling throughout the area in their search, along with fire crews assisting.

While it's clear that Perry is now safe, many questions remain concerning how she ended up lost and how she survived for over a week on a remote trail in south Texas outside of an area where she could be easily found along the trail.
