The hikers called for help on March 31, telling authorities they were lost. Cendoya was found by another hiker — less than a mile from his car — on April 3, but Jack was still missing.

Officials said that when they found Jack, she was dehydrated and weak. "She wouldn't have made it much longer," said Deputy Jim Moss, the paramedic who rescued her.
