Posted by Kyle Brookings on Thursday, August 24, 2017

18-year-old Austin Bohanan was missing in Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains National Park for 11 days without food.

He was located on Wednesday.

The boy was safe and was not injured.

He came out of the woods this week and flagged a passing boat for help.

A rescue team of more than 100 people found no clues he had survived. In the massive area searched, the teen was in the area the whole time.

Bohanan became separated from his stepfather while hiking. He tried calling his mother for help but the cell phone calls didn't go through.
