Missing Oregon mom rescued from cliff along Highway 101

Just two days ago, we shared a Facebook about a woman who went missing in Oregon, and we have just learned she has returned home safely. According to the latest, a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter assisted in rescuing the missing Dallas mother, who amazingly was found on a cliff along the Oregon coast Wednesday, nearly four days after she last spoke with family on the phone.

Heather Mounce (Davison) was found around 1:45 pm along Highway 101 according to Dallas Police, after family members hadn’t heard from her since Saturday and reported her missing.

Heather’s car was found by investigatorsĀ parked along Highway 101 just north of Florence, near Sea Lion Caves. The news reports she drove to the coast on her own free will. According to Coast Guard officials, Heather’s husband spotted her somewhere off of the highway near where her car was located.

“There can be so many negative outcomes in this kind of situation,” said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Ali Flockerzi. “To have found her alive after that long, it’s incredible.”

While no details have been released of exactly what happened to Heather, officials are saying it’s entirely possible she spent four days and nights on the cliff face.

Details of exactly what happened to Mounce haven’t been released, but officials say it’s entirely possible she spent four days and nights on the cliff face.

“Logic would tell me that is the case but I couldn’t say for absolute certainty,” said Lt. Jerry Mott with the Dallas Police Department. “For her to survive that amount of time that had to have taken considerable strength.”

She is said to be in good condition and was a patient at Peace Harbor Hospital in Florence. The video below shows the U.S. Coast Guard rescuing Heather Mounce.
