Family's Mother's Day 'miracle' as B.C. woman found alive seven weeks after disappearance.

A Real Happy Mother's Day!

My wishes to the family for the father to be found safe as well.

Two days before their first Mother’s Day without her, the family of missing Penticton woman Rita Chretien received amazing news.

The 56-year-old mother was found Friday by hunters on a logging road in a remote area of Elko County, Nevada. Her husband, Al, who set out on foot after the couple’s van became stuck on the road 48 days earlier, remains missing.

lame.....she was found days ago



my question is why no cell phone.....seriously just because your old is not a excuse.

Also, just because you cant afford it is also not an excuse....911 cell phones are free......

There might not have been cell phone service, it was a remote area. I don't even get cell phone service at home.
It was said on the tv news, that her husband left the van with a gps. I don't think they're going to find him.

Snow and trail mix. Good diet at least.

She wasn't old either, only 56, she just looks a lot older.

I saw this earlier. I think it was on The Today Show. Not sure exactly, I was just flipping channels and stopped on this story. Anyways, I just wanted to add something that they said, that I do not see in this article.

They said that her husband had left on day 3, and that he had left with a GPS. Considering that she eventually made it out, and he hasn't (yet), got me to thinking that the GPS could have been what caused his misfortune. 2 different possible reasons came to mind.

1. The GPS was flawed and caused him to go the wrong way. (pole shift?)
OR
2. The GPS was functioning properly, but caused him to decide to take a shortcut to get from point A to point B, but he did not realize how rough and rugged the terrain was going to be on the shortcut.

Just thoughts.... nothing more.

It would indeed be incredible if they found him but seeing as he would be more exposed to the elements, I doubt it.

One can always hope tho.

True, we all know that GPS are getting wacky these days but my question is why not back track?

Might be that the GPS showed something something closer and he thought it was better to go thru the forest.

GPS uses triangular location between the satellites so a pole shift would do absolutely nothing.

They just said she's still in a hospital in the US.

I sure hope she had some travelling medical insurance, or that Canada is going to pick up the bill on this - just the thought of having to pay for a hospital stay down south....... :shk:

Good point but I'm sure that her family will be more than glad to pay if it comes to that.

Yes, the bills could be incredible.

Does this free 911 cell apply in Canada too? I never heard of this before.

So happy they found her.

Good question. I don't know about the 9/11 thing here.

Anyone?

I've heard that any cell phone that can be powered on, is enabled for 911 to be used, even if nothing else can be called.

They do cost money. I have one but rarely get cards, because we have rent and bills and run short on the food we would like. So don't talk nonsense because the majority of citizens of this world are the norm not the exception and that attitude is spoilt and brainwashed, most people are the have nots!!!!!

Also, they're not good for you, another reason I rarely buy a card or turn it on.

Well, they just said how they got lost in the first place - he was taking a "shortcut" to a highway. Then they spent 2 days getting stuck, and unstuck, stuck again, and unstuck again, over, and over.....

:shk:

I still think the best move is to back track but I guess if we don't know how far they were in there...
