King County news, Washington news.

The King County Sheriff’s Office announced that a missing 18-year-old woman who vanished for a week was found alive, conscious and talking.

Authorities didn’t provide more details about Gia Fuda’s finding only revealing that she was “deep in the woods” when she was located by the rescue team. A relative said that Fuda survived on berries.

“Gia Fuda has been found alive! After 8 days missing she was just found by search and rescue crews. Amazing job by search and rescue and everyone involved who helped to find Gia,” police tweeted yesterday.

Fuda was last seen leaving her home carrying several bags. Her car was found abandoned off Highway 2 with her purse and jacket inside. Her parents were in panic fearing they would lose her the way they lost her elder sibling in a train crash when she turned 18.
