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.
