Bipolar Teacher Found Alive in a Field After 17 Days Missing


A kindergarten teacher was found hiding in a California field after crashing her car and going missing for 17 days.

In what’s being hailed a miracle, Jamie Tull went missing after crashing her car as she drove alone. The 33-year-old was missing for 17 days, surviving off locusts and water from a nearby cattle trough.

 

The Little Things reports:

Jamie’s friends, family, and hundreds of volunteers scoured the area where her car was eventually found. Search and rescue teams posted her photos on social media and set up a website to help find her, but to no avail. Still, no one gave up in their tireless efforts to find her.

It had become a confusing and heartbreaking mystery that haunted her community.

17 days after Jamie went missing and just as search efforts were about to be scaled back, three ranchers found the missing teacher in the middle of a vast 7,400-acre ranch. Incredibly, she was still alive and proved to be extremely strong and resilient.

County Sheriff Vern Warnke said that when he arrived, Jamie only wanted food and water and initially told him to leave. According to Fox News, officials said she went so far as to hide in a water tank during the search.

Tull had extreme sunburns all over and was so exhausted, she could hardly move.

While it is peculiar that no one found her during the massive manhunt, it’s truly a miracle that she survived so long in that field.
