(SAN FRANCISCO) -- A Nevada woman missing for nearly a week after leaving for a trip across the Sierra has been found alive, but police say her boyfriend is dead.
Paula Lane, 46, was found walking along a highway. She was located by a family member and is recovering in a hospital.
Lane and her boyfriend 44-year-old Roderick Paul Clifton were reported missing last Thursday. That's when they left a relative's home and were supposed to return to Nevada.
The couple became stranded in the mountains.
Clifton's body was found in heavy snow.
