Perth Dog Walker Found Alive After Night in Dense Bushland

Paramedics have treated a Perth woman who was found after a harrowing night spent in bushland with her three dogs in the state’s South West.

After Heather Rae Ellis went missing on Sunday, a 40-strong party of police, rangers and SES volunteers commenced a search across dense bush scrub at Scott River, the West Australian reports.

Mrs Ellis became separated from her 80-year-old husband while walking their trio of Golden Retrievers. After she failed to return home, a search party commenced until 10pm last night, which included police helicopters and the dog squad.

The 65-year-old survived temperatures which dipped to 5 degrees, and was found today by a news crew after following the sounds of cars to emerge from dense bushland around 12:30pm today.

While reportedly dehydrated and confused, Mrs Ellis was in otherwise good physical health.

A St John Ambulance crew transported Mrs Ellis to Nannup Hospital for a standard check-up.
