Amanda Eller, a Maryland woman reported missing in Hawaii, was found alive Friday more than two weeks since disappearing while hiking on the island of Maui.

Rescue workers found Ms. Eller, a 35-year-old yoga instructor and physical therapist, while searching by helicopter above the Makawao Forest Reserve.

“I looked up and they were right on top of me,” Ms. Eller told The New York Times. “I was like, ‘Oh my God,’ and I just broke down and started bawling.”

She was subsequently airlifted to a local hospital to be treated for a broken leg, a torn meniscus in her knee and other injuries, the newspaper reported.
