LAPD found a car near the 9700 block of Blantyre Drive after it crashed off Mulholland Drive Friday night, according to the LA Times. The car broke through a guard rail and plunged into the hills, according to ABC. It was reported to authorities around 8:40 PM Friday.

The Los Angeles Fire Department found the car with its lights on but no sign of any driver or passengers, according to CBS. Authorities spent the evening searching with bloodhounds and helicopter operations. By 11 PM, the search still had yet to successfully find any occupant of the vehicle.

Neighborhood resident Brendan Carroll called 911 after seeing the car lights but no one in the vehicle, according to ABC.

Authorities proceeded to go to the house the car was registered with and allegedly found the driver and brought him into custody, according to CBS.
