She was lost in a wooded area since Sunday (May 24).

ROGERS, Ark. — Charmaine Seaton with the Searcy County Department of Emergency Management has confirmed that the missing nurse from Rogers was found alive late Tuesday morning (May 26).

Stacy Harrington Worrall was found safe and had been lost in a wooded area.

“It was a new area for her and the area out there is easy to get turned around in for people who go out there quite often. It’s a tricky area, there’s a lot of wood," Seaton said.

Haley Antonelli says Harington Worrall took care of her daughter while in the NICU. 

She says he was devastated by the news.

“I saw on Facebook that Stacy went missing and my heart just sunk. She is the first person I think of when I hear the term healthcare hero," Antonelli said.

A tip from some hikers led to a break in the case.

“Stacy was the first person to place my daughter in my arms and I’m just so glad she’s reunited with her daughter now," Antonelli said.
