Missing hiker Amanda Eller rescued from Maui forest | 10News WTSP
Dramatic video captured Amanda Eller's first contact with rescuers before being airlifted from the Makawao Forest Reserve on Maui. Eller, 35, was spotted from a helicopter and found alive more than two weeks after disappearing. Her family told KGMB-TV she appeared in good shape, other than cuts to her legs and severe sun exposure. "She had been eating plants for several days and staying alive," search team leader Chirs Berquist said. Eller was reported missing when she didn't return home from a hike. Her vehicle was found in the reserve's parking lot with her cellphone and wallet inside.
