Couple describes finding missing OR woman near Big Sur

A missing OR woman has been found alive after somehow surviving driving her jeep off a cliff in Northern California's scenic Big Sur. John Thornburg tells the San Francisco Chronicle that 23-year-old Angela Hernandez of Portland was spotted Friday night by a couple walking near Highway 1.

A woman has survived a week by drinking water from her car's radiator after plunging 200ft down a sheer cliff at a California beauty spot when she swerved to avoid an animal. She says she met so many attractive people for her rescue and help bringing her up the cliff.

Photos posted by the Monterey County Sheriff's Office show Hernandez sitting on the rocky coastline as she received medical care.

Her drive was expected to take about six hours.

Rescuers said Hernandez appears to have suffered a concussion.

Detective Rosemerry Blankswade, a spokeswoman for the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, was relieved to hear Hernandez had been found.

She's a fighter and she fought this long and she will continue to.

Andrea Hernandez was rescued at the bottom of a cliff Friday, July 13, 2018, after she disappeared a week ago. It's not going to be an easy recovery. Including her vehicle, which was her livelihood.

The Moores said it was just good timing that led them to Hernandez, and that it is a miracle she survived. She called her family July 5 and was seen on a gas station surveillance camera south of Carmel, California, on July 6.

'My sister is alive, she's talking, and she's still trying to come to understand everything.

Isabel Hernandez set up a GoFundMe to help with her sister's medical costs and buy her a new vehicle, which had reached $3,470 of its $6,000 goal by Sunday morning.

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

The family started a GoFundMe page to aid in financing Angela's search efforts that will now be used to help in her recovery process.
