Missing Oregon found after car plunges off Big Sur cliff

BIG SUR, Calif. (AP) — An Oregon woman who vanished last week in California has been found injured after her Jeep went over a cliff near Big Sur.

Monterey County sheriff’s Cmdr. 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.

He says the woman had an injured shoulder. However, authorities say she was alert and was walking on a remote beach when rescuers reached her.

Hernandez was last seen south of Half Moon Bay on July 6.

Family members said she had been driving from Portland to her sister’s home in Lancaster in Southern California.
