Woman, missing for more than a week, found alive in car

MAPLE VALLEY, Wash. (AP) - A Maple Valley woman who apparently was trapped in her car for more than a week has been taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Thirty-3-year-old Tanya Rider disappeared after leaving her overnight shift at a Fred Meyer store in Bellevue more than an a week ago, on Sept. 19. Her car was found on its side in a ravine around 2:30 this afternoon off Highway 169, the Maple Valley Highway, which is the road she takes to work.

State Patrol officials say she was dehydrated but conscious -- she responded to her name.

Her husband says he was just sitting down to take a polygraph at the King County Sheriff's Office when he got the news she was alive.
