A South Carolina woman missing for several days has been taken to a hospital after being found alive along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.
Assistant chief park ranger Lena Koschmann says Crystal Lynn Ham of Elgin was found Monday evening near Sparta.
Because of the darkness and terrain, rescuers couldn't airlift the 25-year-old woman out until Tuesday morning. A crew of 13 rescuers, including paramedics, stayed with her overnight.
She's currently being treated at a nearby hospital for exposure, hypothermia and dehydration.
Koschmann says authorities are investigating what happened to Ham.
