Carson City, NV -- A family member says a Nevada woman ate snow and tomatoes for nearly a week and found shelter in a hollowed-out tree after she became stranded in a winter storm and her boyfriend died trying to find help.

The Nevada Appeal reported Friday that 46-year-old Paula Lane of Gardnerville is hospitalized in Carson City with frostbite after her six-night ordeal.

Her sister, Linda Hathaway, told reporters that God was looking over Lane.

Searchers found the body of Lane's 44-year-old boyfriend, Roderick Paul Clifton, about a mile north of Burnside Lake in California's Alpine County.

The couple was reported missing after they left Citrus Heights, California on November 29.

Their Jeep Cherokee got stuck during a snowstorm the following morning on a dirt road near the lake.
