COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) - A Maryland man who was missing for five days has been found severely injured in the woods with the help of a search party volunteer using his drone.

Julian Bustos confirmed to WTTG he was using his personal drone to search for 44-year-old Jason Blake Mabee when he spotted him in a densely wooded area near Columbia. Bustos is quoted as saying he was shocked when he found Mabee “just lying there.”

Howard County Police stated in a release they think Mabee suffered an accidental fall. He was flown to a hospital with life-threatening injuries but has since been listed in fair condition.
