Trevor Koenig of Vernon, British Columbia, knew in his gut that something was wrong when his wife didn't come home on Monday evening.

He knew he had to go looking for her

"I just thought, you know what, this story doesn't end with her being by herself," he told Global News.

Something told Trevor to start on Highway 6 so that's where he headed.

"I just drove 50 kilometres an hour with my high beams on close to the shoulder and watched the shoulder the whole way for any highway tracks," he said.

Trevor drove for over an hour before he saw tire tracks in the snow. He got out of his car and couldn't believe what he saw down the steep embankment: his wife's car pinned against a tree.

His heart sank.

"I was afraid to look in the car, I thought my wife was dead in the car," he said.

But when he arrived at the mangled vehicle, it was empty. He investigated further and saw his wife hunched over a tree about 30 meters away.

"She wasn't moving and I got in front of her and I lifted up her face and her eyes were just staring blank and I thought, 'oh, I was too late, and then she blinked," he said. "She thought she was dreaming, she asked if I was real."

The Lumby Fire Department, B.C. Ambulance Paramedics, RCMP and Vernon Search and Rescue all helped to hoist Trevor's wife up to safety.

"It's amazing he was led to that spot and to find her in the conditions that he was faced with," Trevor Honigman with Vernon Search and Rescue said.

"It's a miracle, it really is."
