Tim Joyce told TVSpy he along with family members tracked her down at a remote campsite after seeing she had googled the site located in the Willamette National Forest. He said it was roughly 27 miles from the nearest available cell phone signal.
He asked for help finding Emily from Eugene area residents a couple of weeks ago after his family lost contact with her last month.
Joyce credits a team effort involving friends, family members and Sheriff’s deputies along with a little bit of luck in finding his sister, “As luck would have it, an interview I had given to a local radio station was being aired while she was driving back into town—and she heard about her own disappearance”
Joyce said his sister is, “incredibly apologetic and thankful that we kept trying to find her—even though she was doing her best to stay hidden.”
