On Thursday, 23-year-old Elizabeth Weinberg was found stuck in her car in the middle of a snowstorm after ten days of having gone missing. Weinberg had last been seen on the 11th leaving her mom’s house in Phoenix on her way back to Arizona State University.
Weinberg decided to make her journey at the wrong time, as a massive snowstorm had set into that part of the state on the 12th and covered everything in nothing but white. She says she left on a pave said to be Forest Road 34, but was unaware of when she’d turned onto a nearly impossible to navigate forest road.
Found wet, cold, and hungry, Weinberg was ecstatic at her luck in being found. She’d missed her final exams, but at least she was found alive. She had a stroke of luck when U.S. Forest Service employees were doing routine checks out in the area and stumbled upon her in her car. She was immediately taken to Flagstaff Medical Center.
Over the ten day period, Weinberg survived by rationing out two candy bars and a bottle of water. She was able to constantly refill the water bottle by filling it with snow and leaving it on the roof of her stuck car to melt into drinkable water. Her chance of survival was helped by her decision to remain in her car, as those who leave a vehicle and hike out into the cold usually don’t make it.
The university student is thankful for having been found and very grateful towards those who kept her in their thoughts and prayers.
