According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, 18-year-old Gia Funda, has been found alive after missing for eight days.  Fuda was located deep in the woods down a ravine.

Fubda disappeared from Maple Valley last Friday after she left her home in her 2008 Toyota Corolla. The car was found abandoned near Stevens Pass with an empty gas tank Saturday. Fuda’s purse and wallet were still inside the vehicle.
