Rita Chretien, 56, and husband Albert Chretien, 59, of Penticton, B.C were on their way to a trade show in Las Vegas when their 2000 Chevrolet Astro became stuck in mud on a logging road in Elko County, northeastern Nevada.
The couple had last been seen on a surveillance camera at a Baker City, Ore., convenience store on March 19.
The Chretiens' van was found near the Nevada portion of the Bruneau River and the town of Rowland. Rita Chretien told Police they became stuck on the logging road March 19 and she had been there since then, surviving on water alone.
Rita Chretien has been flown to a hospital across the state border in Twin Falls, Idaho, where she is recovering.
