Eller, 35, disappeared after apparently going for a hike on May 8. Her boyfriend was the last person to see Eller, a yoga teacher and physical therapist, on that morning, but when she did not return home he reported her missing to police on May 9.

Eller's SUV was found Thursday, not long after she'd been reported missing, at the base of the Kahakapao Trail.

Sarah Haynes, a friend who ran the "Find Amanda" Facebook page organizing the search, told ABC News that Eller was located by a search helicopter Friday afternoon in a ravine near Twin Falls. Eller was able to flag down the helicopter, Haynes and Berquist said.

"I haven't seen [the family] yet, but while I was assessing her up [another rescuer] made the call to the father and let him know. I think there was some disbelief there -- 'Are you serious? You really found her?' -- and then just explosions on both ends," Berquist said.

Her boyfriend, Benjamin Konkol, told ABC News on May 16 that he believed she was still in the forest and did not suspect foul play.

"She's my soulmate, she's the love of my life and I feel that she's still out there. ... I'd really like to stop spending my evenings alone and have my love back," he said at the time.

Her family and friends had feared the worst, despite holding out hope she would be found.

"It's been a normal range of emotions, of being fearful that the worst could happen," Julia Eller, Amanda's mom, told Honolulu ABC affiliate KITV last week. "I don't want to be there. I do firmly believe that Amanda is still alive, but occasionally those doubts creep in and I try to dispel them as I can."

ABC News' Lisa Sivertsen, Nick Cirone and Matt Foster contributed to this report.
