OR woman found alive after missing for more than a week

An Oregon woman whose Jeep plunged off a Big Sur, California, cliff was found alive on a rocky beach seven days after she was reported missing, police said Friday.

Angela Hernandez, 23, of Portland, was found by the Monterey County Sheriff's Office while responding to a report of a white Jeep with OR plates "over the cliff" off Highway 1.

Hernandez said she swerved to avoid an animal in the road and survived by drinking water from under her car's radiator, according to CHP. Rescuers from the California Highway Patrol, the State Parks Department and local fire departments "responded and were able to bring her back to the roadway". She was found by two people walking in the area, who called 911, ' the Monterey County Sheriff's Office shared on Facebook.

"Reports are she was talking and could walk", according to the statement.

The 23-year-old had been driving from Portland to Southern California to visit her sister and was reported missing by her family on July 6 when they stopped hearing from her.

Detective Rosemerry Blankswade, a spokeswoman for the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, was relieved to hear Hernandez had been found. About 8 a.m. July 6, she notified her family that she was continuing the drive, the flier said.

Hernandez was conscious and breathing when located, and she was safely extricated before being transported to Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton, according to CHP. It's not going to be an easy recovery. "That's weird. And then came around another bend and saw the vehicle", said Chelsea. "It's usually the fall that gets them, or the ocean that gets them, and she was lucky to survive both", he said.

A GoFundMe account has been set up by her sister. She had been driving on the scenic coastal road from her home in Portland to Los Angeles.

"I just want to thank everybody that helped", Hernandez's sister, Isabel Hernandez, told the news station through tears. "You guys all helped us through the whole thing and Angela would not be okay", Isabel said.
