January 28, 2020

A mother and her three children survived 34 days in the Colombian jungle by living off of wild fruits and berries after they got lost while on vacation.

The mother, 40, and her three children, aged 14, 12 and 10, were first reported as missing on December 19, 2019.

Local media reported the family spent most of the 34 days wandering the jungle barefoot, surviving on berries, before they were rescued by the Colombian navy.

"They were on holiday in the region when they went to meet the children's father and became lost, remaining 34 days as missing," General Sergio Alfredo Serrano told reporters.

The family was found near the village of La Esperanza in the northern Peruvian sector of Yubineto which borders with Colombia. They were following the Putumayo River when they unknowingly crossed into Peru.

Local media said the missing group was found by members of the indigenous Secoya community who contacted Peruvian authorities.

The family was taken to the ESE Hospital Maria Angelines and treated for malnourishment and minor injuries.
