Nick Carr, the husband of the Gilbert woman who was found after being reported missing is speaking out tonight, thanking the media and the two men who found her.
He spoke exclusively with Fox 10’s Danielle Miller and tells us what he has to say about the situation and an update on his wife.
Nick Carr, the husband of Claudine Carr, says the last few days have been difficult on him and his family, but things are starting to look up. He says if it weren't for the two men who knew about the story and spotted his wife’s car, she might not be alive.
Tonight he sat down with us and described the feeling of seeing his wife Claudine Saturday after she was found.
"Granted she was intubated and on a ventilator and was sedated and couldn't move, but just seeing her alive and safe, the weight of the world just lifts off your shoulders," says Husband Nick Carr.
He says she went missing on Friday morning after saying she was going to pick up a prescription and never made it.
Saturday morning just before 11:00 a.m., Taylor Graham and his brother spotted Claudine's unoccupied vehicle near Canyon Lake and called police.
Police found her near the vehicle a few hours later.
She was injured and had to be airlifted to the hospital.
"Scraped up, and unfortunately she tripped and fell and hit her face and her face is quite swollen,” says Nick.
Nick says Friday morning when Claudine left the house she wasn't herself.
He says she suffers from depression and was in the process of seeking help.
He hopes people will see this story and take note.
"When someone starts reaching out and they start telling you hey I'm feeling this, I'm having this problem, it's very important to take that seriously and get help right away. Part of it was we did start getting help, but we waited too long and weren't aggressive enough."
Carr says he's forever grateful for Graham and his brother.
"Thank you guys so very much, you have no idea, you guys saved her life, there is no doubt about it. Her body was at the point of shutting down and they without a doubt saved her life."
He says Claudine will probably be in the hospital for the rest of the week, but is expected to make a full recovery.
He says he hopes when she's feeling better she can get the help she needs from medical professionals and through their church.
