OR woman found alive after missing for more than a week

Woman Missing a Week Found Alive Down a Cliff

Angela Hernandez, 23, of OR, was found 200 feet down a cliff Friday, somehow surviving after crashing her vehicle in California's Big Sur a week ago.

Her drive was expected to take about six hours.

The Monterey County Sheriff's issued a statement saying that she had been found Friday about 200 feet down a cliff, the station reported. CHP officers report she appears to have suffered a concussion.

A Morro Bay couple hiking near Big Sur discovered a Portland woman who has been missing for a week, officials said.

Hernandez told her rescuers she had been there for a week, according to California Highway Patrol dispatch logs.

Once located, deputies confirmed that it was Angela Hernandez and that she was being transported to the hospital.

Editor's note: The original post stated Hernandez drank radiator fluid, not water from the radiator.

Sheriffs said she had told her sister she would stay overnight in a auto park before continuing her journey the next morning, but they had not heard from her after 6 July.

"My sister is alive, she's talking, and she's still trying to come to understanding everything", she wrote Saturday on Facebook. It's not going to be an easy recovery.

Two people walking in the area found her vehicle partially submerged and dialed 911, the sheriff's office said. She had been reported missing and was last seen in Monterey County on July 6.

She was found conscious and breathing, lying outside of her vehicle by the hikers after 6:30pm on Friday.

The family had set up a GoFundMe page to pay for some of the search efforts, including helping them with hotel stays and petrol.

"I know everyone on the West Coast and probably across the nation is thankful to know she is alive and on the road to recovery", Blankswade said.

'In her accident, she has lost everything. "Including her auto, which was her livelihood", she said.

Hernandez was on a road trip from her home in Portland to visit her sister Isabel in Lancaster, Los Angeles County, when she crashed.
