Aussie tourist left for dead

AN Australian woman has been found after going missing for almost four days in Argentina, having been attacked and left in a forest with no food, water or warm clothes.

Authorities in Argentina said a 23-year-old woman was found on Thursday, local time, severely dehydrated and suffering wounds, according to a Reuters video report.

Emma Kelly had been travelling in Argentina and volunteering at a local church, according to Reverend Geoff Westlake, who knew Ms Kelly and her family.

"They're doing OK now that she's been able to speak with her on the phone and a lot of worry has dissipated," he said.

Reverend Westlake is the celebrant at Emma's twin brother's wedding in February and said that the family was concentrating on bringing her home.
