A man who had been missing for a week is in the hospital after police discovered him in a wooded area by U.S. Highway 101, near where his car had been found days earlier. The 25-year-old man was first reported missing by his family when he failed to show up for a funeral service on Thursday evening. No one had heard from him since May 8 at around 1:00 a.m., police said.
On Monday police learned that the man’s car had been towed on May 8 after being involved in a single-vehicle rollover collision near Highway 101 and Hellyer Avenue. Detectives received a detailed location of where the crash occurred on Tuesday and went to the scene. Officers found the man in a wooded area between the on- and off-ramps of the freeway.
Police said that he had not been visible from the road. Although alive, the man was unresponsive and was taken to Regional Medical Center. San Jose police Officer Jose Garcia said police believe the man had been at the site since his car had crashed and was towed by the California Highway Patrol. Garcia said he could not give more information about the man’s injuries, nor how or why he crawled out of his car into an area that was obscured from site
