Rescue crews said on Friday that Page and her cat named Miya lived on just a handful of supplies for about three-and-half weeks. Page had purposely gone hiking off a trail between Feb.10 and Feb.12. She was found sleeping in a blue sleeping bag with her cat and seems malnourished and emaciated.

Lt. Robert McDonald, spokesman for the state police, said that Page’s passenger car were spotted on Feb.12, but didn’t think much of it because hikers often leave vehicles near trails.
