& # 39; We found her in a flow bed, she waved at us while we were in the helicopter, and we made her look beautiful and safe, & # 39; Chris Berquist said ABC news.

& # 39; She was not injured. She has a little sun exposure, a little sunburn. She lost her shoes for a few days. But no injuries. & # 39;

Last week Eller's friend, Benjamin Konkol, said he didn't want to give up hope because he believed she was still in the forest.

And he was right.

At the time of her disappearance, Eller had gone for a walk without her phone and was last seen by Konkol.

Eller's parents offered a $ 10,000 reward last week for tips that bring the missing walker home.

Her mother, Julia, also flew from her home in North Carolina to Maui to help with the search. Then she told it KITV4: & # 39; This is a mother's worst nightmare and it was an emotional roller coaster.

& # 39; I tried to stay positive. If I get carried away by self-pity about how terrible this is, I can't help her if I get caught up in it.

& # 39; She is an inspiration to me, especially since I have been on my own personal journey lately. & # 39;

Eller's family met the police on Monday to discuss the next phase of the search. Her mother Julia, (fourth from the left), said her disappearance & # 39; the worst nightmare of any mother & # 39; is

Eller's family met the police on Monday to discuss the next phase of the search.

They dragged her car away from the stage to become dust for fingerprints, hoping that it would shed light on what happened to her.

She added: & # 39; If anyone there knows anything that has been done to her, please bring her home. & # 39;

She is described as approximately 5 & 9 ", 145 lbs, with long brown hair and an athletic build.
