Psalm 34:17 - When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
Family and friends of three Wisconsin sisters are praising God after they were found alive after going missing in the Wyoming wilderness.
“They’re tired, cold (and) hungry, but otherwise healthy and happy to be on their way out,” U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokeswoman Lori Iverson said.
The sisters, Megan, Erin, and Kelsi Andrews-Sharer, left June 28th for an extended camping trip in Grand Teton National Park and were supposed to return home on Tuesday. When the ladies didn’t arrive and made no contact with the family, authorities began a search.
The women’s car was found 15 miles south of Jackson. A ground search began Wednesday with dogs and helicopters.
Thursday morning, a local guide heard of the search and remembered seeing a person wearing a white raincoat in a part of the park that has no trails the previous day. Local officials say the detailed description given by the guide allowed them to focus their search pattern and the women were found 20 minutes later.
Fish and Wildlife Service officials credited the girls for preparing for unexpected conditions and staying together as being a key to quickly finding and rescuing them.
