Big Bend, TX — A 43-year-old woman who had been lost in the 300,000-acre Big Bend Ranch State Park for more than four days with little water and no food has been located by a search and rescue team made up of State Park police officers, Texas game wardens, other game wardens assigned to the newly created Game Warden SAR Team, and volunteer TX SAR members. The rescue occurred shortly after noon Sunday.
Suffering from dehydration and exposure, Katheline Elizabeth McFarland of North Little Rock, Ark. was evacuated from a remote area of the park by a U.S. Border Patrol helicopter and taken to the landing strip on the state park. From there she was flown by a Midland-based air ambulance to University Hospital in El Paso where she was reported in fair condition.
