SPRINGDALE, Utah (KTNV) — Search and Rescue crews found a missing woman, Holly Suzanne Courtier, within Zion National Park on Sunday, the National Park Service says.

The original tweet from Zion asking for information says she was possibly dropped off by a private bus at the Grotto on Oct. 6.

Park Rangers received a credible tip from a park visitor that they had seen Courtier within the park, according to NPS.

Courtier has been reunited with her family.

NPS shared the following statement from the family on the Zion website:

“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.”
