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

A U.S. woman whose vehicle plunged off a California cliff has been found alive a week after she was reported missing.

Per SFGate, Angela Hernandez was found Friday by beachgoers south of Big Sur. The department tweeted Friday evening to say that Hernandez was safe after she'd been reported missing some six days earlier.

Ms Hernandez had been travelling from OR to Southern California to visit sister Isabel when her communication suddenly stopped. They say she appeared to have a shoulder injury and was talking and could walk.

The statement added that she a helicopter took her to the hospital.

She told Monterey County Sheriff's deputies and CHP officers that survived the six days by drinking water from her car's radiator. "She's a fighter and she fought this long and she will continue to". This is very traumatic and will be a slow recovery process, ' her sister Isabel wrote.

Her disappearance captured widespread attention after she and her vehicle were last seen on a surveillance camera video at a Carmel gas station on July 6, about 50 miles north of the stretch of Highway 1 where she was found.

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.

Hernandez told her rescuers she had been at the bottom of the cliff for a week.

Chad Moore stayed with Hernandez on the beach, while Chelsea Moore ran back to the campground and called 911.

Isabel Hernandez, her sister, thanked the people who looked for her.

"Angela was found about 200 feet down a cliff". Everybody that ... helped us through the whole thing and Angela will be OK.
