A woman who vanished six months ago was found living in a flimsy tent in a canyon after a drone searching for her corpse crashed into a nearby tree. 

The unnamed 47 year-old told Utah County Sheriff's Office deputies that she had moved into the remote Diamond Ford Canyon voluntarily after being found on Sunday.

She said she had survived by eating supplies she found in the abandoned tent she moved into, as well as moss and grass, and was severely underweight when she was found. 

The woman managed to survive temperatures that regularly hovered around freezing during the winter months, and says hikers also provided her with supplies. 

Sergeant Spencer Cannon, Public Information Officer for the Utah County Sheriff's Office told DailyMail.com how searchers had set off expecting to find the woman's body. 

The drone search was part of a semi-regular hunt for the missing woman, and resulted in her being found through sheer luck when it crashed into a tree. 

While recovering the drone, which was operated by a nonprofit group which works with cops to help track missing people, a sergeant and the drone operator saw the woman's tent.  

The missing woman opened its zipper, and stuck her head out of it.
