3 Sisters Found Alive After Disappearing in Wyoming Wilderness
Three sisters who were missing for days in the Wyoming wilderness have been found alive.
Officials say 25-year-old Megan Margaret Andrews-Sharer, 22-year-old Erin and 16-year-old Kelsi were spotted by helicopter this morning in Bridger-Teton National Forest.
They are cold and hungry, but healthy, a search spokeswoman said.
The three sisters left for their camping trip June 28 and were supposed to return on Tuesday to head to Switzerland, but missed their flight. They had not been heard from since Saturday.
Searchers found the sisters’ SUV near a trailhead yesterday afternoon. A team of 60 people searched on foot and horseback for the Andrews-Sharer family. Dogs and choppers also assisted.
The three women, who are described as experienced hikers, packed enough food for five days.
Their family, friends and loved ones united in prayer while the sisters were missing. A vigil was held yesterday evening for the girls at the United Methodist Church of Whitefish Bay, the church that the three girls attended until they moved several years ago.
“I am just overwhelmed with thanks for what everybody is doing to support us,” their mother, Shirley Andrews-Sharer, said.
