Sep 25, 2012 / 9:22 am
Susan Catt has been located in a remote area near Cherryville.
The 52-year-old Lumby woman had been missing since Saturday.
Catt was located by a father and son from Delta who were hunting in the Ferry Creek Road area Monday night.
They had been in the Cherryville Emporium earlier in the day and read the missing person report that had been posted there.
RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk says the son recognized Catt's Pontiac Sunfire parked under a tree.
"The two men approached the car to find Catt lying under the rear seat. She was extremely incoherent and alone at the time the two found her," says Molendyk.
Catt was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
Molendyk says Catt is expected to survive her ordeal.
Her family is with her in hospital.
"The quick action of the father and son being at the right place at the right time likely saved the woman's life," added Molendyk.
