A California woman’s phone led her to her missing husband’s body, the authorities could find him. The San Francisco Chronicle reports the unnamed woman told her husband, a 49-year-old Jayesh Patel, is missing when he is not at home come Friday.

Using a find-my-phone-app, Patel wife traced him to a field behind a building in San Mateo, where they found his Mercedes about noon Saturday, according to the Mercury News.

It was crushed with Patel. They called the police, and the authorities had the jaws of life to extract Patel of the car. He was pronounced dead at the scene, CBS San Francisco reports.

The authorities say He fell 30 metres from a highway interchange sometime after 10 a.m., Friday. It is unclear what the cause of the crash; the Mercedes had to have hit a concrete barrier hard enough to jump.
