ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE, Alta. - Mounties believe a woman who escaped a sex attack on a rural road in west-central Alberta ran into the bush to hide but became lost for 12 days.

The 25-year-old from the O'Chiese First Nation was discovered on Friday wandering in a remote area near Rocky Mountain House.

She had a broken jaw and infected cuts and was taken to hospital.

Cpl. Nick Munro says the woman survived on river water and berries.

He says she has trouble speaking because of her jaw, but has been able to identify her alleged attacker.
