A hiker missing for nearly a week was found alive today on Mount Lemmon after surviving by eating grass and drinking stream water, authorities said.
Lucinda Beachy, 33, was found six miles off-trail at the bottom of a canyon in the Lemmon Canyon area around 4:30 p.m. Saturday by two search and rescue volunteers, said Pima County Sheriff's Department Sgt. James Ogden.
Beachy was reported missing by her 17-year-old son Alex Beachy Tuesday after he last saw her Monday morning.
Family members, who had spent the past several days traveling from across the country to aid in the search, said they were overjoyed upon hearing that Beachy was alive.
