Fauna Jackson, 16, was found about four miles from where she went missing on Thursday morning, when had been working on a trail project with Groundwork USA, the Associated Press reports. She took a bathroom break and didn’t return. Search and rescue teams had been combing the area, and the Teton County Sheriff’s Office said the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol helped find her, the AP reports.
“We are relieved and very grateful that Fauna has been found,” Grand Teton National Park Superintendent David Vela said in a statement, without offering an explanation as to why Jackson might have changed her appearance.
