LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - You don't always see happy endings like this one, but Monday, the family of the Denver City woman missing for nearly three weeks talks to NewsChannel 11 about her amazing recovery.

Judy McCullough, 64, disappeared on her way from Hobbs, New Mexico to Denver City back on March 18.   Authorities say some kids riding their 4-wheelers on a remote canyon road in Eddy County, New Mexico spotted her stranded car Sunday night. That's about 15 miles from Carlsbad and about 100 miles from where she was last seen. Paramedics took her to Carlsbad Medical Center for treatment.

Monday, Judy is recovering from dehydration and hypothermia. Her daughter tells us she is in good condition, and they are just happy to have her back. "Shock. Honestly I wasn't sure if I should believe it at first. We did some double checking to make sure it was confirmed, and then found out that it was. Very, very happy. Relieved," said Keri Fenton, McCullough's daughter.

Coming up on NewsChannel 11 at 10, we hear more from McCullough's family and we take you to where she was found.
