Yesterday, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) Search and Rescue (SAR) responded on a lone female stuck deep in the forest off East Evans Creek road.
The woman was stranded for two nights and three days before she was able to text out for assistance. She was very cold and slightly injured from exposure to the elements. The woman became stuck on a muddy road, then it snowed four inches over the past few days making an attempt to walk out too dangerous. She did the right thing by staying put with her vehicle.
JCSO authorities say to always stay on main roads and plan for an unexpected night out, if traveling. Due to the continuation of winter storms, many forest roads are still snowed in and inaccessible.
