BULLOCK CO. Ala.-- UPDATED: 08/15/2017 11:02 p.m.

Lisa Theris allowed Deputy Chad Faulkner to share photos with us after she says she spent 28 days in the woods surviving by eating berries and mushrooms and drinking from creeks and puddles.

Deputy Faulkner says she was found naked by a driver who spotted her along Highway 82 between Union Springs and Eufaula in Bullock County Saturday afternoon. He says the photos were taken shortly after Theris was found. They show her covered in scratches and bug bites, and very thin.

Deputies say Theris was with two men about the time she disappeared in mid-July.

Randall Oswald and Manly Davis were questioned in the Theris' case.
Though they face burglary charges, the men haven't been legally implicated in the Theris case.

Faulkner says this story is grabbing attention across the country.
He interviewed with national media Tuesday.
