Northern Territory police say one of three people missing in central Australia for nearly two weeks has been found alive.
However, NT Police said they were still searching for Claire Hockridge and Phu Tran, who were travelling with Ms McBeath-Riley.
A search will resume for two people after a woman was found alive near the trio's bogged vehicle south of Alice Springs two weeks after they went missing.
The 52-year-old was transported to the Alice Springs Hospital late Sunday for treatment for dehydration and exposure.More news: Jets plummet back to Earth, fall to previously winless Bengals
Ms McBeath-Riley found water about 1.5km north of the auto.
They eventually left the vehicle when their supplies ran out, leaving a note on the auto and finding a watering hole about a mile away.
Speaking to reporters outside a hospital in Alice Springs, Ms McBeath-Riley said the group had stayed by the auto for around three days in an attempt to free it.
Fearing the worst as days passed and no one came to their rescue, they separated sometime around Thursday, hoping one of them would find help and guide rescuers to the others.More news: HIV rate continues decline to record low in British Columbia: Health Ministry
Northern Territory Police despatched helicopters to search for the trio.
"Sensibly she appears to have stayed where the water is and has been drinking that and that's probably what kept her going", Vicary said.
'She's had a fairly traumatic period of time. She was airlifted to a roadhouse about 55 miles from Alice Springs, the place paramedics discovered her breaking her quick with beer, cola and french fries, mentioned Andrew Everingham, the regional supervisor for St. John Ambulance.
The spokesman said it was believed the pair was in the area where Ms McBeath-Riley was found.More news: Man shot to death by his own booby trap device at home
Speaking to reporters outside a hospital in Alice Springs, Ms McBeath said: "Three of us, my partner and a friend were going off to little bit of fall driving over the Chamber's pillar". "It's quite a diverse terrain - there's sandy dunes, there's hard clay, there's areas of dense trees but there is also rocks and ranges in the area as well".
