A California woman who vanished in Utah’s Zion National Park earlier this month was found and reunited with her family, officials said Sunday.
Holly Suzanne Courtier, 38, was located within the park after a visitor saw her and alerted rangers, the National Park Service said in a statement.
Additional details about how she survived or where she was found were not immediately available.
In the statement, Courtier’s relatives said they were “overjoyed” that she’d been found.
“We are overjoyed that she was found safely today,” the statement said.
“We would like to thank the rangers and search teams who relentlessly looked for her day and night and never gave up hope. We are also so grateful to the countless volunteers who were generous with their time, resources and support. This wouldn’t have been possible without the network of people who came together.”
Courtier, of Los Angeles, disappeared after a private shuttle dropped her off on Oct. 6 at the Grotto park area inside the 232-square-mile national park. She was scheduled to be picked up later that afternoon but didn’t show up, park officials said.
The search included K-9 units and federal, state and local rescue teams. Volunteers also joined the effort.
