_Missing Sisters Survive Two Weeks In Woods On Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout cookies help missing sisters survive in the woods for two weeks. Read more on the story below!

The sisters were stranded for almost two weeks in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Leslie Roy, 52, and Lee Wright, 56, were returning to Kalamazoo from visiting a relative and their car got stuck in the snow. But because of eight boxes of Girl Scout cookies, some cheese puffs and snow for water, they were able to survive. The sisters said they were even approached by a bear on two occasions.

Their white Ford Explorer was spotted by a Michigan State Police helicopter after the pilots saw a glimmer off of the car windshield. When rescuers arrived they said Lee Wright was holding onto her Bible. Michigan State Police say the sisters wore multiple layers of clothes and had huddled in their car to stay out of the cold, but the battery eventually died. The helicopter had to circle around many times before finding the car under the trees. The sisters got out of the car and started waving and building a signal fire and they were finally rescued after the helicopter landed on a beach a few miles away and authorities hiked to them.
