Woman found after bush SOS

Woman found after bush SOS”

An Australian woman lost for three days after going for a walk was found safe on Wednesday after an "SOS" sign was spotted in a surveillance photo.

Deborah Pilgrim, 55, from Adelaide, was last seen Sunday in the mountains 50 miles outside Adelaide, where she had been at a camping party with friends, police said.

Local officials launched a major search operation involving drones, helicopters, scent dogs and trail bikes in search of Pilgrim, but it was only due to her quick thinking that she was found.

Pilgrim chose to draw an SOS sign in the dirt in the bush, hoping that an aircraft flying overhead would spot it.

Neil Marriot, who owns a block of land in the area, intermittently logged onto his CCTV cameras remotely after learning of the woman's disappearance.

Police eventually found Pilgrim a little less than a mile away from her "SOS" marker, on a neighboring property where she had found fresh water.

"There was the SOS written in the ground, which wasn't there the day before", he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

"I think I dropped to the ground", she added, recalling the second rescuers arrived.

"We held great fears for her safety".

Speaking of how she survived the three days alone, "I just kept wandering and laid low at night", she said.

"It's very, very dense mallee scrub", he told ABC Radio Adelaide. "I just knew that it was my job".

She was taken to Angaston Hospital but appears to be in good health, South Australian Police said on Wednesday.
