Missing Peace Corps Volunteer Found Safe in Panama Park

PANAMA CITY – A U.S. Peace Corps volunteer reported missing in western Panama’s Baru Volcano Park has been found “safe and sound” by Sinaproc emergency management agency personnel, the agency’s director, Arturo Alvarado, said.

Yennifer Vilk went for a walk alone last Thursday in the park, wandered off a trail and got lost.

The 37-year-old American was able to use her cell phone to call the Peace Corps office in Panama City and ask for help.

Sinaproc launched a search and found her on Saturday, Alvarado told reporters.

Rescue workers told Vilk in a telephone conversation on Friday to stay in one place and take shelter as protection against cold temperatures and wild animals, the Sinaproc chief said.

The Peace Corps volunteer has some minor injuries and is dehydrated, Alvarado said.

Vilk was taken from the park to a private clinic in David, the capital of the western province of Chiriqui, by helicopter for a medical examination.
