GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - Greenville County deputies said a woman who had been missing since Tuesday was found in a ravine off the Swamp Rabbit Trail on Saturday morning.

Dispatchers said walkers on the trail heard a woman calling for help near mile marker 31 on the Swamp Rabbit Trail just before 10 a.m. Saturday.

Deputies identified the woman as Kimara Hughey, 24.

Hughey had fallen from the trail and was stuck in a ravine on a section of the trail that is more than a mile off of West Blue Ridge Drive.

Fire and EMS crews were called to help get Hughey out and transported her to the hospital in good condition. Deputies said Hughey only sustained minor injuries.

Deputies had been searching for Hughey since Tuesday after her boyfriend reported her missing.

Hughey was last seen in the area of South Bleachery Road and South Franklin Road around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Wendy Gaunt, Hughey's mother, said she was on her way to hand out flyers with Hughey's photo and information printed on them when she received the call that her her daughter had been found alive.

"Just knowing that she was alive and going to be okay was such a relief," Gaunt said. 

Gaunt wished to thank the media and the local community for spreading the word about Hughey's disappearance.
