    If she was a nurse she probably has had good training. I would love to hear the rest of the story. How did her car end up three miles from where it was last seen? In an area that had already been searched? Did she just get lost, or were others with nefarious purposes involved?

    the other good thing she did was telling someone where she was going, that probably saved her life after she didn't turn up for work.

    She was 3 miles from the car.
    It hadn't moved.

    They had seen the car, but no signs of her.

    I took a course in survival , one of the things we were taught to do is built three signal fires
    Place each fire at the corners of the triangle with each fire about 100 feet apart. Three fires burning in a triangular fashion is an international signal for rescue. Rescuers around the world know what it means and will quickly come to your aid.
    You build the fires but do not light them. the fires are built very large teepee type with a hole to light up extra dry inflammable stuff. when you see or hear a planes you light them up . there is a huge quantity of evergreen boughs that will smoke like crazy when light .

    Glad she's OK, she was missing for 3 days and think SAR operations usually get toned down if they haven't found the person by then.

    Mentioned in another thread like this one that I always like to check what radio repeaters are nearby when a person goes missing in the wilderness. This case isn't any different in terms of what I found. This page is a map of only the Tulare County Sheriff's radio license information and locations, the ones numbered 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9 on the map are repeaters. Fire and EMS have their own repeaters too, plus there's a few others in the county. They use standard FM mode, no digital, no encryption. A $25 HT could have saved her a lot of time and trouble, not to mention the T/T for the SAR team looking for her.

    Good afternoon Gate Crasher,

    I'm generalizing much with numerous variables because our nation is so large, ..........

    A usual public sector / public sector-sponsored SAR team has a basic 51 hour SAR window for survivability of a middle-aged, basically healthy person in an area they're familiar with/accustomed to withing the contiguous 48 states.

    The 51 hours comes from the insurance industry's mortality charts on who survives, who does not.

    Above is for land and not maritime.

    Again, many variables but 51 hours - 2 days plus - and the SAR team transitions to finalizing efforts.
