Rangers and guides searched for eight to ten hours per day for a week, and after nine days in the jungle, Maykool was found less than a mile from the campground. He was dehydrated, and had bug bites, botflies, and spines stuck in his skin. He says a group of monkeys dropped fruit and led him to shelter and water every day.
