I found:

  • Aviator Bob Gauchie detains the record for solo arctic survival by a downed airman, enduring 58 days of arctic weather before his rescue in Canada 1967.

  • After 72 days on the glacier, 16 of the 45 people on board the crashed Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 were rescued alive.

Any longer ?

scope: For the purpose of this question only the initial rescue from the crash site shall be considered.
