    Freaking OUTSTANDING news!!

    When I saw this in a recent article, it did sound hopeful that they had a strong potential sighting of her and could narrow down a probable area to focus their search. They used the word positive which got my attention. IMO

    Amazing! I really thought this was going to be a body recovery mission at this point. What great news that is not the case!

    WOW! I am shocked and so happy for her and her family. Totally unexpected and so nice to get a happy outcome on one of these missing persons cases.

    I'd love to know. I thought all along she was trying for some photo ops and some alone time. I still wonder if she got lost - not difficult to do out there, at all. The soil can be so hard/rocky that most people wouldn't be able to follow their own tracks back to safety.

    When we get a "found alive" or "found safe", I am so grateful. I wish Holly and family well. I am sure the story is filled with lots we haven't thought of. Welcome back, Holly!!!

    Well this is certainly best case scenario! While I doubt we get more information, it doesn’t sound like she was lost.

    I have a question for anyone who has been there. Is there cell service? If there is then she left phone behind so no one could contact her. Maybe she just wanted to live off grid for awhile. Can’t blame her for wanting to get away. I find disturbing she didn’t tell anyone. It sounds like she wasn’t lost but on an adventure. Maybe depressed and just wanted to refocus on herself. Pure speculation on my part. I guess the takeaway is let family or friend know where you’re going regardless of age.

    Wonderful news!! If she was uninjured and left with her family, Holly is going to be shocked to see all the stuff on the internet, she never knew she was missing. So many people cared about her!!

    Yes, as far as I recall, the park had really good cell service. I don’t remember not having service when I visited.

    I know the park & all it’s trails very well. I would say it’s next to impossible to be uninjured, but lost, as an experienced hiker in Zion. I would bet that she was purposely missing. I’m glad to hear she is fine & reunited with family.

    Cell service is touch & go in Zion. Most of the park has limited cell service, while some areas are complete dead zones & some areas have great service.
