A 69-year-old man that went missing when hiking was found thanks to modern drone technology.

According to reports, the man had been wandering around for several hours after getting lost in a remote section of the Serra Gelada.

Once the alarm was raised, Local Police in Benidorm activated a drone to locate him in an area that would otherwise have been almost impossible to access. He was finally spotted around 2pm.

Once the missing man was located, he was suffering from dehydration and needed significant amounts of water and sugar before being taken to the local medical centre to continue his treatment.
