Hiker missing for more than a week in Big Bend National Park rescued

Texas Department of Public Safety

Rescuers are seen carrying Perry near the top of the Lost Mine Trail on Friday.


A 25-year-old hiker missing since November 9 in Big Bend National Park in Texas has been rescued, the National Park Service said in a statement.

The hiker, Christy Perry, “was found awake and talking approximately 1/4 mile below the summit of the Lost Mine Trail” Friday morning, the park service said.

“We are pleased to report a successful search and rescue operation in Big Bend National Park. Our highly trained team, working with outside law enforcement, located and safely rescued the missing hiker,” the agency said in a Facebook post.

Photos from the park service showed rescuers navigating “steep terrain with the patient” as they carried the hiker near the top of the Lost Mine Trail.

A close family friend told CNN affiliate KTRK that Perry had planned a vacation but didn’t tell anyone the details of his itinerary.

Multiple agencies have assisted in the search for Perry since November 15, when it was reported that she was “late” for her trip to the park.

Rescuers are seen in Big Bend National Park, Texas, searching for a missing 25-year-old hiker.

Perry had picked up a rental car in Midland, Texas on November 8. Her vehicle was seen parked at the trailhead the next day and she failed to show up for her campsite reservation, according to a missing person report.

Perry was “transported by Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter to Odessa, Texas, for medical treatment,” according to the park service.

Lost Mine Trail is open and the park service encourages all visitors “to explore responsibly.”
