A legally blind woman, who ran from committing a crime, has been found naked on the side of the road - but virtually unharmed - after spending nearly a month in the woods.
"It was all about finding the road or finding a person", said Theris. Theris, who has very poor vision, had no cell phone during her time in the Alabama woods.
Theris was discovered with numerous scratches and bug bites and was hospitalised, and is now recovering at home.
Theris brought one thing with her out of the wilderness, a staff she made to help her walk.
Theris can not say much more because of the ongoing investigation in the case and remained remarkably collected while being interviewed, stopping herself from breaking down on the few occasions she seemed to become overwhelmed with emotions.
"It makes you appreciate everything", she said.
"She was so wonderful", Theris said of the woman, who gave her clothes and stayed with her as they waited for help.
For the next several weeks, Theris said she wandered in the woods and survived on berries, mushrooms, water from puddles, a creek and even fallen rain that had collected in her hair.
The 25-year-old radiology student said it was the thought of her family that kept her going through the ordeal and that the entire experience has given her a new outlook on life. "I asked her what happened and she said she didn't know", Garner said, exposing the possibility Lisa was drugged at some point. I had to get as much of it as possible. Doctors told them she might fully recover after a month.
During her interview with ABC News, Theris acknowledged that two days before she was found, she was scheduled to appear in court on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. That case was dropped earlier this month, when the court presumed Theris was dead.
Police admit that there is a lot more to Theris' story, but state they can not reveal any additional details at this time.
There's "a whole lot more to the story".
"I've been doing this now going on 15 years and I've never seen anything like it", Chad Faulkner, of the Bullock County sheriff's office, told local media.
The 25-year-old is seen before going missing for almost a month. She was wearing what appeared to be a hospital gown.
The 25-year-old from Louisville defied all odds, surviving 28 days alone, with nothing at her disposal but her will to live.
Lisa didn't have any way to tell time when she was stranded, but she kept track of the days in her head.
