SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Police in Northern California say they have found an injured man who survived without food or water for a week in a wooded area that authorities had previously searched after his car had rolled over.
San Jose police Officer Jose Garcia said Thursday that detectives found the man unconscious Tuesday in a dense thicket of brush and trees below the on- and off-ramps along Highway 101 in south San Jose.
Twenty-five-year-old Michael Sanchez of San Jose is in critical condition at a hospital. He was reported missing after failing to show up for a funeral on May 10.
Sanchez was last seen on May 8, the same day that investigators say his car was towed after a single-vehicle rollover. Authorities had searched for Sanchez but couldn't find him.
