Yay, glad to hear she's been found. Sounds like she took a major tumble but is otherwise okay:

From their Facebook:

Found along the south fork of the Merced river. Fractured Pelvis, fractured Femur, Alert and Stable. Family can call for hospital details. She sounds like she'll be alright.

The Facebook page says she was last seen saturday at noon. So that potentially means 3 nights out with a fractured pelvis and femur. Wow.. that would be hard. Must be a tough lady. I wonder where she was on the south fork. I heard a heli up there for quite awhile yesterday and today.

HARD CORE!

You GO, Jessica!

I hope she doesn't let this undo her plans to work/live in the park. . . the place is so magnificent. There is such room for personal growth.

I hope she sees my post on her FaceBook page, with the link to this thread. . . it would be wonderful to "meet" her here at the virtual campfire.

Very Happy to hear it's "just" a broken femur & pelvis.

Girl, so sorry for the painful adventure! Heal up so you can enjoy Yosemite proper!!

The South Fork is a cool section of the park, and you don't see many other people...

Heal well, Jessica.

Fractured pelvis, broken femur, and a shitload of poison oak I imagine. The south fork is hard core!

She went upstream.. though I think she was up Chilnualna because that is where I heard the heli. Hard to tell though because they may have been evacuating searchers.
