Lost in the Wilderness: Madeline Connelly recounts her 6 day survival


Family members said Connelly, a native of the Chicago area who had been living in Arizona, stopped in Montana to visit before traveling to Alaska where she has a job managing a bakery.

"She's an experienced outdoorswoman".

"She was found just a couple hours ago, and she's just fine", Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry told the Chicago Tribune. Two Bear Air Rescue flew her out, although she had offered to hike out, they said.

"I got lost", she said.

"We're very positive", Michael Connelly said.


When she didn't return from her hike they went looking for her.

Madeline Connelly, a 23-year-old woman who had been missing in the Great Bear Wilderness in northwest Montana since she went on a day hike Thursday, was found Wednesday located by search and rescue teams. Her dog is also said to be OK. Her auto was found, and rescue teams discovered Connelly's footprints, her dog's paw prints, and bear tracks.

"I kind of just thought I was going to make it to my vehicle this morning and go get a coke and then [go to] my uncle's", she recalled as her parents laughed beside her. "She loves it. It's where she's most comfortable", said Laura Maychruk, who lives near the Connelly family in River Forest. That's what's so great about River Forest and this community.

"The latest is they've tripled their crew". They have people on horses, they have new dogs coming in.

"I think the main thing is just to keep the flame of faith, the flame of hope alive. That's the primary focus", said Father Steven Bauer of St. Luke Catholic Church. There's the what-if's and the possibilities of what could go wrong. "We've continued that throughout the weekend".
