She Went Missing After Being Charged By Bears And Was Thankfully Found Alive After Being Alone In The Wilderness Of Alaska

Fina could see from below that there were helicopters in the air looking for her, but they could not see her down in the thick woods.

As night fell, Fina was still out there, all alone in the Alaska wilderness. She managed to make a fire with some matches she had on her, but the people out looking for her still couldn’t find her.

“It’s easy to see and hear an aircraft in the sky, but can be very challenging to spot a person at night under canopy,” Senior Master Sgt. Evan Budd, full-time member of the Alaska Air National Guard and superintendent of the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center, said.

Fina knew help was trying to reach her, and that helped her keep on and fight to find her way out of the woods.

At 5:30 p.m. the next day, Fina made it out of the woods and to the road that was located a mile away from the start of the trail.

One of the search and rescue members involved with Fina’s search was driving home for the night and saw her there on the side of the road.

“At approximately 1730 hours, the Alaska State Troopers were notified by a volunteer SAR member departing the search area that Fina Kiefer walked out of the woods as they were driving by on Knik River Road, about a mile from the trailhead,” the Alaska State Troopers said in a statement.

“Kiefer has injuries and EMS is transporting her to a Mat-Su area hospital for evaluation.”

Although Fina did suffer some injuries out there, she is thankfully ok, and she even took the time to thank everyone who helped look for her.
