SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) - A Mississippi woman who vanished on a visit to Sequoia National Park in California has been found safe after three days.

Authorities say 56-year-old Mary Joanna Gomez of Jackson was found Monday after a California Air National Guard aircraft saw the letters SOS spelled out with rocks in a park area.

The National Park Service says she was cold, thirsty and hungry but otherwise in good health. She was found off-trail about 3 ½ miles from where her car was discovered over the weekend.
