Hiker found safe after missing 6 days in Montana

Hiker found safe after missing 6 days in Montana

Connelly went for a day hike on Thursday, May 4 prompting an extensive search when she didn't return.

He said Connelly was hiking off trail about three miles from the Bear Creek Trailhead when she apparently lost her bearings.

On Saturday, a full scale search was launched in the Great Bear Wilderness area, with crews scouring the area on the ground, and in the air.

Her auto was found near the trailhead where search crews also found her tracks.

Connelly was possibly wearing baggy trousers and an unknown color hoody. Her dog was was found alive, too. When they got back up they took a wrong turn, she told KTMF-TV on Wednesday.

If you have any information you are asked to contact the Flathead County Sheriff's Office at 406-758-5610. "They're treating this as a rescue, not as a recovery, and there have been no signs of any torn clothing, or blood, or anything like that". Her auto was found empty in a parking lot at the trailhead.




Madeline is at Glacier Park Headquarters with her parents. Family members located her vehicle two days later and called law enforcement.

Authorities in Flathead County are searching for a missing Arizona woman in an area where grizzly bears are known to inhabit.

She called the event "just a huge mistake" adding that she felt "like an idiot" for getting lost.

Connelly's mother called her daughter's rescue the best Mother's Day gift ever. Please join your prayers with ours for her safe return as search crews continue to hunt for her. "She is an outdoors girl".

Kalispell Regional Medical Center tells MTN News that Madeline Connelly, 25, was brought to the hospital and has been released.

On Tuesday, there was a large turnout at St. Luke Catholic Church in River Forest, the family's home parish, for a prayer vigil, the second in two days. "It's actually snowed a little bit during that time", he said.
