Missing woman found alive after auto plunges off California's Big Sur

Rescuers stand at the bottom of a cliff along the California coastline where they found a missing Portland woman a week after she disappeared

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, from OR, was found by hikers on Friday evening after they saw the wreckage of her SUV partially submerged at the bottom of a 200ft (61m) cliff in the Big Sur area.

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

She had an injured shoulder and a concussion, according to authorities.

Ms Hernandez had been travelling from OR to Southern California to visit sister Isabel when her communication suddenly stopped.

Hernandez was driving from Portland to Southern California when she mysteriously disappeared and fell out of communication with her family, officials said.

"My sister is alive, she's talking, and she's still trying to come to understand everything", Isabel Hernandez wrote on Facebook on Saturday. "Her vehicle was partially in the water", the sheriff's office said. It's not going to be an easy recovery.

"A couple found her lying there and immediately called for help". She was spotted last on a surveillance camera at a gas station south of Carmel.

The money raised is now to be donated to Ms Hernandez, her sister said.
