Monday night, Jesse Flagg, 26, went missing near Happy Camp.

Tuesday morning, Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office, California Highway Patrol and the U.S. Forest Service came together to locate Flagg. They found him off Highway 96 between Cave Mountain and China Point.

"A [USFS] unit actually saw the vehicle over the side," Lopey said. "At this juncture, we don't have an explanation what happened. We can only speculate that he ran off the road."

Flagg was found in good condition.

According to SCSO, Flagg was able to self extract himself from the vehicle but slid down the embankment about 60 feet where he was stranded until first responders rescued him.

He was taken out of the vehicle and transported to a hospital in Medford via helicopter to be examined further.
