A teenager survived eight days without food and water after her car plunged 200 feet down a ravine near Redmond, Wash. Laura Hatch, 17, disappeared Oct. 2 after leaving a party. Her family reported her missing, but police assumed she had run away and didn’t search for her. “We had already given her up and let her be dead in our hearts,” the girl’s mother, Jean Hatch, said. But the family organized a volunteer search. A friend’s mother, Sha Nohr, joined in after dreaming the teen was alive in the woods. Nohr drove to a remote stretch of road and prayed, “Let her speak out to us.” Something told Nohr to clamber down a steep roadside slope. She spotted Hatch’s crumpled Toyota Camry through the trees. When Nohr reached it, Hatch said, “I might be late for curfew.”
