“A woman found her missing husband’s body before police were able to by using the Find My iPhone app to track him to a car wreck,” Jennifer Smith reports for The Daily Mail. “Jayesh Patel, 49, failed to return to his home in Pacifica near San Francisco, California, on Friday night, prompting his wife to report his disappearance to police.”

“She tracked his cell phone to the interchange of highways 101 and 92 on Saturday where she found his body trapped inside his totaled Mercedes,” Smith reports. “Mr Patel is believed to have veered off the ramp at some point late on Friday night and fallen some 30ft in the car.”

Friends paid tribute to Mr Patel as a ‘family man’ and experienced colleague after hearing of his death.”
