Missing Woman Survived On Berries, Puddle Water For A Month: Rescuer

Lisa Theris is recovering after being lost in the woods for nearly a month

After she was found, Theris was rushed to an emergency room, where she reunited with her family.

Pictured missing, Louisville, Alabama woman, Lisa Theris who was discovered over the weekend after having been lost for up to 28 days in the Midway woods.

An Alabama woman missing for almost a month was found safe after surviving in the woods on berries and mushrooms, she said. She didn't want any part of the crime and took off, TV station WSFA previously reported, citing the local authorities.

Lisa said she had tried to keep walking, but because of her hunger and exhaustion she was often following her own tracks. Theris was reported missing in mid-July and had last been seen in the Midway, Alabama area.

Authorities have said Lisa was with two men on the night of July 18 when she fled into the woods upon being told the men planned to rob a hunting lodge.

Deputies say Theris was with Randall Wade Oswald and Manly Davis about the time she disappeared in mid-July. She stayed, and I called 911 and told them I had found a girl on the road...

"Her will to live was strong, when you have a will to live and a will to survive".


There are still a lot of questions in the investigation into her disappearance. "We wanted to make sure her health was in the best shape and in the days to come, we'll get some answers", said Sgt. Chad Faulkner.

She had been lost for a considerable length of time and confronted intense conditions in the forested areas. Lisa Theris was found alive around 2 p.m. on Saturday. "She's alive and that's all that matters at this moment". She said she spent the last four weeks trying to navigate her way out of the woods but ended up going around in circles.

Theris' brother, Will Theris, shared a photo of his sister on Facebook Sunday.

"I've been doing this now going on 15 years and I've never seen anything like it. Her will to live is incredible", Bullock County Sheriff's Sergeant Faulkner said to WTVY.

"She had been out lost in the woods", he said. Williams said none of Theris' injuries were severe, according to BuzzFeed News. We didn't ask her too many questions. "The next few weeks will be rough, but she is handling it all like a trooper and our family will continue to do all we can to help".

"She's in severe pain, but is slowly improving", he said. The sister added that not a single inch of Lisa's body went unaffected by the month spend in the wilderness. "We are very thankful for everyone's thoughts and prayers".
