Woman Gets Lost in Woods - Emerges a Month Later
In Alabama, 25-year-old Lisa Theris miraculously survived 28 days lost in thousands of acres of forest before turning up on the side of a road in Bullock County. The poor woman was in such bad shape - naked, dirty, with matted hair and covered in bug bites - that motorist Judy Garner initially mistook her for a deer. Garner believes that she found Theris just in time saying, "I don't think she could have made it much longer." Theris told authorities she survived on berries, mushrooms, and water from puddles and creeks. She was admitted to a hospital in critical condition, having lost some 50 pounds. Authorities are still piecing together what happened but two suspects arrested weeks ago on burglary and theft charges told officers Theris was in a vehicle with them on July 18 when she learned they planned to rob a hunt camp. The suspects said Theris wanted no part and exited the vehicle. Without a phone or even shoes, she then got lost in the woods at night and it went downhill from there. Her brother says Theris is now out of the hospital and recovering at her parents' home in Louisville. Authorities hope to interview her once she's recovered.
