BULLOCK COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

A Barbour County woman who vanished nearly a month ago has been found alive after a massive search effort. Her loved ones reunited with her at a Bullock County hospital.

Lisa Theris, 25, of Louisville, was located in Bullock County Saturday afternoon by a passerby. Once reunited with her, Lisa's brother, Will Theris, posted a photo of her on Facebook with the caption: "28 days stranded out in the wilderness and Lisa is still standing, strongest person i know."

Will Theris also gave this statement after seeing his sister again:

"Yesterday was the happiest, most surreal of days when we got the call that she had been found. She has some complications and has a lot of healing to get through but she is standing strong and full of jokes as ever. The next few weeks will be rough but she is handling it all like a trooper and our family will continue to do all we can to help. We are very thankful for everyone's thoughts and prayers and look forward to our baby fully recovering."

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.

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