I would find that plausible except her condition and the dog's condition. She was "resilient and strong" when found. Exhausted and dehydrated but clearly she was able to do more than "scoot" as they earlier stated. And the dog looked great. After four days of no food and only some stagnant water part of the time as I doubt the water source travelled with them as they wandered for three nights. Her story about surviving on a water source she found and cacti (which doesn't appear to be in season), with no equipment or fire, sounds suspiciously (to me) similar to Amanda Eller's amazing story of heroism and resilience. But it also doesn't make sense. Especially given how great this 60 year old woman looked and seemed upon rescue. And the odd insistence by the kids immediately that their mom had been abducted in that remote area in the five minutes her husband was gone, without him hearing or seeing anything. Those parts of the case are what makes me think it might not have just been a story given to hide a mistake. But I don't know anything for sure.
