SUPAI, Ariz. (AP) - A woman who had been reported missing from a hike in Havasu Canyon has been found.
U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs rangers who had been
searching for 60-year-old Judy Jones spotted her Wednesday morning in a
Coconino County sheriff's spokesman Gerry Blair
says she's being flown out by helicopter. Authorities say she's
conscious and lucid.
Blair says Jones had separated from two other women
early Tuesday morning. He says the other women hiked out of the canyon
on the Havasupai (hav-uh-SU'-peye) reservation but Jones didn't show up.
Ground crews and aircraft had searched into Tuesday
night in areas around Supai Village but did not find Jones, who is from
the Phoenix area.
