Nadia Bloom found and now safe to her family

Rescuers and other law-enforcement officials carried the 11-year-old girl out of the woods in a black hammock.

She is on her way to South Seminole Hospital in Longwood for an evaluation.

"It all came so fast and it just shows the compassion of the human spirit. It should give everybody encouragement," Nadia's father Jeff Bloom told reporters after rescue crews lifted her into an ambulance.

When asked how he felt, Jeff Bloom said: "I can't even describe it. Let's give the glory to God."

Nadia's mother Tanya thanked everyone, from rescue crews to strangers, for their efforts and prayers.

"They have been so wonderful," she said.

The Winter Springs girl, who has been missing since Friday, was found this morning — on the fourth day of the search.

Her parents and Nadia's younger sister, Sophia, saw as crews placed her in an ambulance.

Dan Holland, senior pastor at Metro Church in Winter Springs, identified James King as the "hero" who found Nadia alive.

"[King] woke up this morning and told the pastor, ‘I walked straight through the swamp and there she was,'" Holland said.

Officials are taking King to the Police Department to fill out a sworn statement.

Winter Springs Police Chief Kevin Brunelle said Nadia was found in Zone 13 — an area that had not been cleared by the search teams. He said she is "doing well with bug bites and some dehydration."

As word spread that Nadia has been found, the crowd gathering outside Metro Church is increasing.

At one point, about three dozen church members broke into song in the driveway in front of the church, singing "Shout Halleluiah."

"James said he was praying. He said he was praying in tongues, he was praying in spirits and he went right to her," Sandra Green said. Green is the wife of Metro Church pastor Randy Green.

Patricia Guobadia, a spokeswoman for the Blooms, said "our prayers have been answered…it's just celebration today." Guobadia and others had organized a vigil Saturday at Lawton Elementary School where Nadia attends.

Investigators think she had been in the vast conservation area around Lake Jesup. That lake is known as one of the most alligator-infested bodies of water in Central Florida.

Other children have been found several days after getting lost in similar dangerous environments

In May 2009, a 3-year-old was found alive after being lost for two days in Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri. A massive search began after the boy had wandered away from home.

A 4-year-old girl was found crying in the woods in March more than 24 hours after she went missing near the California/Oregan border. She had spent the night in the woods where temperatures dipped into the 30s.

On Monday, authorities had scoured swampy woods, lakes and the gated Seminole County neighborhood of Barrington Estates for any clue to Nadia's whereabouts.

Despite the lack of leads, Brunelle had always maintained: "I'm not willing to give up on her."

The fifth-grader had last been seen riding her bike in her neighborhood. Her sister, Sophia, had told police Nadia could be carrying a video camera in her backpack with the intent of making a nature video.

Investigators had said a book about a girl who loved the outdoors may have inspired Nadia to seek her own adventure in woods before she vanished.

Nadia, who has an autism-related disorder called Asperger's Syndrome, read a book called "Lanie," the story of a 10-year-old girl who explores her backyard and documents what she sees.

"We haven't seen any common link with [the book and] what we are investigating," Brunelle said Monday. "The only thing we can figure with the book is that they are both nature lovers."

Rescue groups had focused their search in areas around Lake Jesup, one of Central Florida's most alligator-infested bodies of water.


"‘It just shows the compassion of the human spirit,’ her father Jeff Bloom said."
