Clallam County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Randy Pieper says Jones had been missing since he left home Wednesday night to get his wife a bottle of wine.

Jones told police he was driving home when a car coming over a hill blinded him. He swerved, over-corrected and went off the road.

The car hit a tree in a brushy area, blocking his doors and making the car difficult to see from the roadway.

He told police he drank his urine to survive.

He was home Monday after being treated for dehydration and hypothermia.
