Woman missing for month survives on berries, muddy water

By the time she was found Theris had lost 50 pounds and was covered in scratches and bug bites. She did not have a phone or purse on her

Sheriff Raymond Rodgers tells WSFA-TV that Theris was lost in the woods of southeast Alabama for nearly one month.

According to a report from NBC News, Lisa was discovered by a motorist who spotted her in the bushes this weekend along Highway 82 near Union Springs in Bullock County, Alabama. They have not been charged in connection with her disappearance, according to AL.com, an Alabama news outlet. It shows her with matted hair and with a scratched and noticeably tan face, but smiling. However, she later stopped by to help after learning it was a human being.

"I started shaking. I was crying, I was scared, and I didn't know what to do", Garner said.

So who is going to play her in the movie version of this? "I just thank God she's alive", the sheriff said.

Theris was last seen in Midway where two men who had burglarised a hunting camp. "She had been out lost in the woods".

Manley Davis, 31, and Randall Oswald, 36 - the two men - were later found and arrested by police.

Lisa told Garner and police she survived in the woods by eating berries and mushrooms and drinking muddy water - "basically whatever she could find out there", Will said.

A massive search had been underway for Theris, and teams, equipped with dogs, covered a lot of ground looking for her, but couldn't get through all of the dense woods.

Authorities said she wasn't familiar with the area and got lost in thousands of acres of isolated forest.

Faulkner said he has no doubt that Theris' disappearance was genuine because no one would put themselves through the sort of ordeal that Theris appeared to endure.

"She has some complications and has a lot of healing to get through but she is standing strong and full of jokes as ever", her brother, Will, said.

When she realized it was a young woman, she jerked her vehicle to a stop.

"I gave her a hug and said, 'You poor thing".

"I've been doing this now going on 15 years and I've never seen anything like it", Sheriff's Sgt. Chad Faulkner told WTVY. "We want to make sure her health is good".

"It really didn't completely hit me that it was real until I actually saw her once again, living and breathing in the flesh", he said. However, Lisa told them it was her will to live stemmed from her love for her family. "She's alive and that's all that matters at this moment". "Her mother and her father, she said". "But she is as strong as they come and is handling it all as well as anyone".
