SPRINGDALE, Utah — A woman who was missing for nearly two weeks has been found safely in Zion National Park.

Authorities had been searching for 38-year-old Holly Suzanne Courtier after she didn't show up for her scheduled pickup in the park by a private shuttle on Oct. 6.

She was found Sunday by search and rescue crews after rangers received a "credible tip" that a visitor had seen her in the park, the National Parks Service said. She has now been reunited with her family.

Courtier's family released a statement after she was found:

“We are overjoyed that she was found safely today. We would like to thank the rangers and search teams who relentlessly looked for her day and night and never gave up hope. We are also so grateful to the countless volunteers who were generous with their time, resources and support. This wouldn’t have been possible without the network of people who came together.”

No additional information on where she had been or how exactly she was found was released. This article will be updated if further details are made available.

Courtier's sister wrote on a GoFundMe page set up initially for search and medical care costs: "Details on her rescue are limited right now and we will update you when we have all the information."
