Authorities say that a trucker who was missing for four days was rescued from the Oregon wilderness.
Jacob Cartwright, 22, lost out after his GPS sent him in the wrong direction. Kaipo Raiser said:
Cartwright's truck was reportedly full of potato chips when he got stuck in an area with limited cell phone coverage, his boss said. The trucker headed back in the direction from which he had come through the snow shortly after midnight on Wednesday, without food or water.
Since he was missing, there has been an intense search for planes Tuesday
Cartwright did not stop until Saturday morning when he approached La Grande. The journey was 36 miles.
From there, the truck driver was brought home by a passing motorist.
Cartwright's wife returned from meeting local officials after finding her husband – only to find him at her home.
The trucker told his wife that he had "really hurt badly" and "really cold," so she drove him to a hospital.
"He looks pretty good," said a nursing assistant at Grande Ronde Hospital in La Grande. "He's a big boy, he kept moving and stayed warm enough, so it does not look like he's getting too many injuries."
When asked why he did not bring chips from the truck, he said : "This is worth the money."
