We're going to continue now with that incredible rescue. The California mother found alive in Zion national park. This after nearly two weeks going missing on a one-day hike. Kayna Whitworth joins us now with the latest. Good morning, kayna. Reporter: Hey, robin, good morning. Holly courtier's daughter says her mom lost her job during the pandemic and decided to spend her extra time in the national park. She was already a nature lover. And now this morning, the 38-year-old is recovering in the hospital. This morning, a family rescue of holly courtier, the 38-year-old mom missing and alone for 12 days in Zion national park. We're such a tight-knit family and I couldn't imagine one person gone. Reporter: She disappeared October 6th after taking a shuttle bus into the park, the avid nature lover left her phone behind planning a solo hike through the canyon but authorities say she never returned to be picked up. Spread out over the park's 232 mile, family, volunteers and rescue teams traversed the park known for its high plateaus and maze of narrow deep canyons searching by drone and on the ground with k-9 unit. I went out with a very experienced hiker and we actually said, you know what, we'll step off the trails and look where she could be. At one point we're hanging on the edge of a cliff and rocks are falling on us and I thought, oh, my gosh, if this is my sister, you know, I didn't -- at one point thought how this. Reporter: Days passed with no sign of holly. She was without food. Then a tip came through alerting them of a possible sighting. Rescue teams finally tracking her down. Holly speaking to family members from the hospital. She hasn't ate since then at all. She's had very little water, we found out. But the moment I talked to her on the phone she said I love you so much and that was her signature thing to say to people that she loved and I said I'm so glad you're coming home. Reporter: Now, holly had just hiked the narrows in Zion national park with her daughter a few weeks prior to her disappearance. Her sister this morning said she's so thankful to the rangers who never gave up on finding her. I'll bet they are. Thanks very much.
