Woman rescued after finding her car in a canyon 4 days after going missing

A 72-year-old Idaho woman spent 4 days alone in the wild was rescued after hunters found her wrecked car halfway down a canyon and called for help.

They found a crushed Chevrolet that “appeared to have gone partway down the canyon wall” ust before noon local time Saturday, according to the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office.

The vehicle matched the description for that of 72-year-old Penny Kay Clark, who had last been in contact with her family on Tuesday Dec. 5 and was reported missing by the Nampa Police Department, the sheriff's office said.

Multiple agencies responded in the rescue including the Life Flight Network, Police, paramedics, multiple fire departments and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

Officials determined the fastest way to reach Clark was on foot, and at 1 p.m. local time, Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue members reached Clark and found her “conscious and alert.”

“This is frankly one of the most miraculous incidents that I can recall in all my years in law enforcement, and it’s a true testament to the strength and fortitude of Penny Clark,” the sheriff added, calling her rescue, “truly a miracle.”

Clark was last said to be recovering at a hospital with her family by her side
