A Simi Valley woman who had been reported missing Monday was found today with her SUV that had tumbled 50 feet from a hillside road north of Malibu.Jenifer Duron, 40, was rescued by firefighters at Latigo Canyon Road and Newton Motorway this morning around 9:15 a.m., according to City News Service. A passer-by jogging reported hearing a female voice screaming, according to the Ventura County Star.

When rescuers found her, Duron was alert and able to talk, though she did suffer moderate injuries from the crash. Rescuers carried her up the steep hillside in a basket before she was transported to a UCLA Medical Center, according to KTLA.

Duron, a health activist, was last seen leaving home in her white 2014 Kia Sorento. She told family members that she was planning to go for a run at a Malibu beach. How or when exactly the car went over the side of the road isn't clear.
