Hiker missing for almost month found in New Mexico
Hiker missing for nearly a month found alive in New Mexico's Gila National Forest
By The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) ' A woman who had been missing for nearly a month has been found alive in New Mexico's Gila National Forest.

Search crews say they found 31-year-old Margaret Page of Albuquerque on Wednesday.

They say Page was barely able to speak and had lost one third of her body weight, but was able to stay warm thanks to her thick blue sleeping bag. Page had likely been stranded in the Gila for the past three weeks, eating food she had brought with her and drinking water from a nearby creek.

KRQE-TV (http://bit.ly/xIcAeu) says Forest Service workers spotted Page's car by the Gila Trailhead on Feb. 10. But it wasn't until Feb. 25 that the Forest Service ran the plates on the car and realized it belonged to Page and Albuquerque police were contacted.
