MODESTO — A kindergarten teacher missing from Modesto has been found alive, her father confirmed to FOX40.
Jamie Tull was found Friday morning by family and friends who went looking for her near where her car was found crashed in Merced County. She had been missing for nearly three weeks.
Tull was about half a mile east of the crash site in Le Grand. Her phone was found near a water trough where cattle drink.
“We saw her moving,” Tull’s step cousin Lynn Garber said. “And we said, ‘It looks like she’s alive,’ and she says, ‘I’m alive.'”
Tull’s father said she was sunburned and dehydrated, but alert enough to speak. She was flown to a hospital in Fresno.
The three people who found Tull said she could barely move because of her severe sunburns. She is said to have survived by drinking from that trough and eating insects.
