An American yoga instructor who spent two weeks lost in the wilds of Hawaii and survived on plants and water has been found alive.
Amanda Eller, 35, was rescued Friday beside a creek bed at the bottom of a ravine in a national forest on Maui after she was spotted by a helicopter.
She had been out on a hike when she vanished.
Her disappearance prompted a social media campaign to boost efforts to find her.
“Amanda has been found. She got lost and was stuck and slightly injured in the forest – way way out,” reads a posting on a “Find Amanda” Facebook page created after her disappearance on May 8.
Eller, who also works as a physical therapist, has been in the hospital since her rescue.
A grassroots fund-raising campaign collected more than $70,000, and this allowed a helicopter to be chartered to look for her.
Eller’s boyfriend was the last to see her. Police found her car at a parking lot near a hiking trail.
“She is just as strong as we always said she would be. We knew she could make it this long,” people close to her wrote on the Facebook page, which was followed by more than 20,000 people.
During her ordeal, Eller lost around seven kilos (15 pounds), Javier Cantellops, one of the people who set out to search for her, told CNN. Eller’s mother Julia said she suffered a fractured leg.
Trump is ‘completely shutting down’ oversight: CNN’s Toobin slams the White House’s move to limit Hope Hicks testimony
On Tuesday, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin tore into President Donald Trump's White House for moving to limit what former Communications Director Hope Hicks can tell the House Judiciary Committee in her upcoming testimony.
Hope Hicks, a former communications official at the White House, will testify behind closed doors tomorrow in the House of Representatives, the Judiciary Committee," said anchor Wolf Blitzer. "But the White House is now saying she has immunity — she doesn't have to answer questions regarding the time she served in the White House."
"You said she's going to give testimony," said Toobin. "I believe she will attend the hearing. I think that's the accurate way to put this."
WATCH LIVE: Trump’s 2020 campaign launch in Orlando
President Donald Trump's fans stood in a storm through Florida as they awaited being let into the Amway Center for the 2020 campaign launch. Meanwhile, the Orlando Sentinal was dropping a truth bomb on their reasons for endorsing "Not Trump."
Outside the Orlando rally, as fans were getting drenched, the president was leaving the White House ranting about how there were "both sides" to the false conviction of the Central Park Five. And once supporters finally made it inside the Amway Center, they were greeted with a message from a booming 1984-esque voice telling Trump supporters what to do if there are protesters.
Right-wing radio show ratings tank as host undermines Trump’s ‘promises made, promises kept’ re-election slogan
The fact Donald Trump's base sticks with him no matter what he does is negatively impacting a conservative radio host attempting to hold the president accountable for his campaign promises.
Michael Alan Weiner, who goes by the stage name Michael Savage, hosts the "Savage Nation" radio show.
The host once praised Trump as the "Winston Churchill of our time" has been criticizing the president recently, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
"Now Mr. Savage is an outlier once again, dismayed more each day as the budget deficit continues to swell, thousands of new migrants are apprehended at the border, and the wall Mr. Trump promised to erect and make Mexico pay for remains unbuilt," The Times explained.
