Yoga Instructor Missing For Two Weeks Found Alive In A Stream.

The 35-year-old yoga instructor who had been missing for two weeks has been found safe, according to Hawaii officials.

Amanda Eller went missing on May 8 while hiking in the Makawao Forest Reserve trail in Maui.

On Friday evening, helicopter search crews found Eller lying in a stream bed.

'THEY DID IT!!! #findamanda Amanda Eller has been found alive! After 17 days lost in the steep jungles of East Maui, the never-ending determination & steadfast faith of THESE and HUNDREDS of volunteer searchers paid off!' a volunteer tweeted.


The rescuers spotted Eller from the helicopter around 5pm local time.

'We found her in a stream bed, she was waving up at us while we were in the helicopter, and we got her out nice and safe,' Chris Berquist told ABC News.

'She was not injured. She has a little bit of exposure from the sun, a little bit of sunburn. She lost her shoes a few days in. But no injuries.'

Family friend, Sarah Haynes, told the station that Eller was found in a ravine near Twin Falls.
