Found: Missing bachelorette party in Cabo San Lucas safe after Hurricane Odile

A bachelorette party in Cabo San Lucas reported missing in the wake of Hurricane Odile is safe and back in California, relatives confirmed late Wednesday.

The eight bachelorettes left Thursday from Fresno, Calif., and arrived at the Villa Del Arco hotel in Mexico — right before the storm wreaked havoc on the resort Sunday night, according to NBC News.

Shaun Sumpter hadn’t heard from his wife, Crystal, one of the bridesmaids, since Monday — the day the women were supposed to leave.

“They didn’t know how bad it was going to be, and by the time they got there, it got worse,” said the despondent husband.

But Sumpter took to Facebook Wednesday at 11 p.m. with positive news: “Crystal Sumpter just landed in San Diego… thank you all so much for your support.”

Lou Cook, the mother of one of the bridesmaids, said she had tried the Red Cross and State Department, but no one was able to assist her. She was shown holding up a photo of the eight women, smiling, during the trip.

Sumpter added that he had exchanged texts with his wife and spoke with her on the phone while the hurricane destroyed part of the hotel. Since the women were grounded in Mexico, Sumpter scrambled to find another flight for his wife, to no avail.

“They heard the airport wasn’t worthy of air travel,” he said. “But Alaska Airlines had said the flight was still on, but we couldn’t call anyone down there.”

Local officials said Tuesday it would probably take two days to help the 30,000 tourists who were placed in temporary shelters and hotels.
