He added that the first priority for police was to make sure that Lisa was treated before asking her about the incident.

Will also said his sister was in critical condition when she was taken to the hospital. Judy quickly stopped her vehicle to help Lisa, whose hair was matted and dirty. "She stayed, and I called 911 and told them I had found a girl on the road".

The Bullock County Sheriff's Department has concluded that Lisa was with two men who were going to break into a hunting camp in the rural area that night she disappeared. Lisa allegedly did not want to participate in the crime so she ran off, only to get lost in the isolated woods.

The two men, Manley Davis, 31, and Randall Oswald, 36, were arrested almost two weeks after Lisa disappeared and were charged with stealing $40,000 (£31,100) worth of goods including four-wheel drive cars and chainsaws, according to Huffington Post.

Theris had been missing since July 18 The Bullock County Sheriff's Office says she survived on berries, mushrooms, and muddy water.

Theris was facing a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge in Coffee County at the time of her disappearance, court records show, but Faulkner said there as "no way" she made up the tale of living in the woods to avoid prosecution.

Lisa has returned home from the hospital, where she is recovering, according to her sister and brother.

Officials warn against drinking Moscow mules from copper mugs

Lisa Theris has so far declined to speak about her ordeal.

Unfamiliar with the area, she had become lost soon after running into the woods on the night of the robbery, often going in circles due to the disorienting effects of hunger and dehydration, and eventually losing 50 pounds, over a third of her body weight.

Police said their first focusing was making sure Theris got immediate treatment.

"28 days stranded out in the wilderness and Lisa is still standing, strongest person I know", said Theris.

There are still a lot of questions in the investigation into her disappearance. "We put a lot of man hours into this case to find her and this is a really good outcome", said Sgt. Chad Faulkner, lead investigator on the case.

Theris says her determination to see her family again kept her alive. "We did not interrogate her at that time". She survived on berries and mushrooms, a feat that has seen her story featured nationally.

Lisa has since been reunited with her family, who was relieved to hear she was alive. "It's great that she's OK and back at home", said James Starks. "But she is as strong as they come and is handling it all as well as anyone".
