Woman Found After Getting Lost at Big Bend National Park

Staff Report

It was a scary experience for an Arkansas couple who got lost at Big Bend National Park.

Cathy Frye and Ricky McFarland were told they needed to leave the park because of the government shutdown last Tuesday.

A park ranger gave them a map telling them how to get out of the park but that's where things took a bad turn.

The couple was lost for four days.

On Friday, Rick McFarland went to find help while his wife stayed behind.

He ended up getting out of the park and a search and rescue team spotted his wife on Sunday.     

She was airlifted to a hospital in El Paso where she's listed in fair condition.
