BULLOCK COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

A Barbour County woman who vanished nearly a month ago has been found alive after a massive search effort, and loved ones are on their way to be reunited with her.

Lisa Theris, 25, of Louisville, was located in Bullock County Saturday afternoon by a passerby.

Sheriff Raymond Rodgers said Theris was spotted on the side of the road around 2 p.m. by a woman driving down Highway 82 between Midway and Eufaula. The woman notified police and Theris was located and taken to the emergency room in Bullock County to get checked out.

Theris was seen in Midway before she went missing. Her family reported her missing after not hearing from her, sparking a multi-agency and multi-county search for her. Investigators say she was with two men who burglarized a hunting camp in Midway and then vanished. The two men have since been captured and charged.

Many feared for Theris' safety and Rodgers expressed relief and joy that she is alive and well. He indicated she's been living in the woods during the weeks that she's been missing and appeared to be a bit "scratched up," which is why she was getting checked out at the hospital. It's not clear where she was staying or how she survived in the elements.

According to the sheriff, Theris' father was on his way to Bullock County to be reunited with his daughter.

"It's the ending we have all been praying for," the sheriff stated.
