A man who spent four days being stranded in missing in South West bush ate bugs and frogs and drank water from the roadside to survive.

Christopher Charles Frendo said he felt “very good” despite his ordeal.

He said he survived with “whatever I could manage to get and water off the side of the road”.

The 31-year-old was found yesterday in his bogged vehicle in bush close to Jill Road in the Shire of Nannup.

He had gone missing after telling friends he was heading to Nannup to photograph wildlife. He had not been seen since he left a service station in Busselton on Wednesday.

He was found when he managed to flag down a passing motorist yesterday.

He was suffering from dehydration and was taken to Busselton Hospital for a check-up but was later released.

Chris Frendo posted on his Facebook page last night: "Thank you every one for all you have done for me over the last couple of days I will get around to thanking every person but for tonight my bed is a blessing I can not resist any longer thank you all again soooo much will talk to you all tomorrow love you all."

Mr Frendo said he would thank everyone personally who had helped rescue him.
