Teen Girl Walks For Two Days Looking For Help After Horrific Accident

Autumn Veach, a 16-year-old girl, was picked up on Highway 20 near Easy Pass trailhead after walking for two days. She had walked through the woods for two days searching for help after her plane crashed. Initially, the plane took off from Kallispell, Montana, and then crashed near Omak, Washington, on Saturday.

Veach said the plane had crashed and caught fire after flying into a bank of clouds. Veach, as well as her step-grandparents Leland and Sharon Bowman, were aboard the plane when it crashed. When Veach reached the highway, a driver took her to a local Mazama store on Monday. Serena Lockwood, the woman who manages the store, said she could hardly believe Beach’s story. Lockwood said “She had like some branches and twigs in her jacket and some scrapes on her face, but I think the main thing was she just seemed in shock."

Veach was taken to a hospital after an EMT, who was also an employee at the Mazama store, confirmed that she was dehydrated. The dehydration and her other injuries were non-life threatening. According to Veach’s mother Misty Dawn Bowman, Veach’s step-grandparents did not survive the crash.
