Around noon on Saturday she was found alive.

The woman, 58, became lost when her car was bogged in a remote area of the state’s Central West.

She called Triple Zero (000) about 9.30pm Thursday (November 24, 2022) to report her vehicle was bogged and she didn’t know where she was.

Her phone ran out of battery a short time later.

Officers from Central West Police District initiated an extensive search assisted by SES, RFS and a fixed-wing aircraft, as well as making a public appeal for assistance, with a geo-targeted text message was issued to more than 86,000 subscribers.

Following information provided, a PolAir crew found the woman on a property near Bobadah, about 170km southwest of Cobar.

The property owner assisted the woman to their home where PolAir landed and has now airlifted her to Parkes Hospital, where she will checked as a precaution.

Police thank everyone who assisted in the search and shared our appeal for information.
