A Sanford, Maine, man has been found alive after he spent four days trapped inside his truck after it rolled down a muddy New Hampshire embankment and became stuck.

Robert C. Brown, 65, was found Saturday by a group of citizens walking in the woods near River and Washington Streets in Dover, according to a news release from the Sanford Police Department.

The Sanford man’s wife reported that she had not seen her husband since he dropped her off at work in Rochester, New Hampshire, on Thursday, the department said in a previous release.

Investigators attempted to ping his phone, but it had died, according to the Associated Press and ABC affiliate WMUR-TV.

Brown’s white 2008 Ford Super Duty pickup truck appeared to have "slid down an embankment" before it got stuck with Brown inside, the SPD said.

First responders saw the vehicle’s tracks down the muddy embankment, the AP and USA Today reported.

The truck was found "upright" with "the driver's side leaning downhill," Dover Fire Department Lieutenant Patrick Simmons said, according to WMUR-TV.

First responders were able to load Brown into a stokes basket so he could be carried uphill, Simmons said.

Brown was then transported to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the SPD.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing, the department added.

The area where Brown was found "is generally not accessed by people from the public," Simmons said, per WMUR-TV.

"This is more like an area to like to dump dredging and sand and dirt and things used by the city workers and things like that," Simmons continued, noting, "I don't know how he got out here."
