Isabel Hernandez set up a GoFundMe to help with her sister's medical costs and buy her a new auto, which had reached $3,470 of its $6,000 goal by Sunday morning.

Hernandez was on a road trip from her home in Portland to visit her sister Isabel in Lancaster, Los Angeles County, when she crashed. But it wasn't until the night of July 14 that hikers spotted her auto at the foot of a cliff and reported it to a campground host that a rescue team located Hernandez-at the bottom of a 200-foot drop-still conscious and able to walk.

Deputies did not say the state of her injuries. To stay hydrated, she used a radiator hose to siphon water from a nearby stream, according to KGO-TV.

Hernandez had been declared missing when she appeared to vanish after CCTV footage captured her at a Carmel gas station on July 6, around 80km (50 miles) north of Highway 1 where she was found. She was transported by ambulance to a waiting helicopter, then taken to Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton, SFGate.com reported. It's not going to be an easy recovery.

"My sister is alive, she's talking, and she's still trying to come to understand everything", Isabel Hernandez wrote on Facebook on Saturday.

Local resident Chelsea Moore was hiking in Big Sur with her husband when they found Hernandez on Friday night, according to Moore's mother, Luanna Sandvik.

"This is very traumatic and will be a slow recovery process", she said.

"A couple found her lying there and immediately called for help". On the morning of July 6 she texted her sister saying she was hitting the road before she suddenly went off the grid.

The money raised is now to be donated to Ms Hernandez, her sister said.

Later that day her cell phone mysteriously pinged in Santa Cruz County. Everybody that ... helped us through the whole thing and Angela will be OK.
