A Dutch tourist has been rescued unharmed after vanishing for 18 days in the mountains of southern Spain.

Rescuers says Mary Anne Goossens was weak when airlifted to a hospital outside Neja on Wednesday.

A mountain rescue spokesman says Goossens was spotted by walkers Wednesday in a ravine. He says the walkers could not reach her so they called for help.

Goossens, a 48 year old woman, was on a 10 day hiking trip alone when she apparently became lost on June 16.

She says she survived off river water.
