If you have been paying attention lately, you have probably heard the story about the man who managed to survive at sea for a month with nothing more than Heinz ketchup to eat.

We are not even sure how that is possible but he is living proof that you can make it.

According to Insider, last month, the man was finally rescued by the good folks with the Colombian Navy, as they worked in tandem with the National Aeronaval Service of Panama and the General Maritime Directorate. According to a press release, when he was found, he was stranded 120 nautical miles northwest of Puerto Bolívar in the Guajira department of Colombia. The Naval Institution initially learned that he was lost.

They received word that there was a sailboat in the region that had “HELP” engraved on the hull. Elvis Francois, 47, first started to experience difficulties back in December.

Currents arrived and swept his boat out to seat, placing him in a very difficult predicament. It all started when he was making repairs on the watercraft off the island of St. Martin in the Netherlands Antilles.

Francois hails from the island nation of Dominica. According to Insider, he managed to survive for 24 days at sea and all he had to live off was various food seasonings and ketchup.

“Twenty-four days — no land, nobody to talk to, don’t know what to do, don’t know where you are — it was rough. At a certain time, I lose hope. I think about my family,” said Francois, according to NPR.

“I had no food. It was just a bottle of ketchup that was on the boat, garlic powder, and Maggi. So I mixed it up with some water,” Francois continued. Now, Heinz is looking to find the man and they are harnessing the awesome power of social media to do so.

“To whoever finds this message, we need your help tracking down an amazing man with an amazing story. You may remember Elvis Francois as the brave sailor who survived on nothing but ketchup and spices while adrift at sea for 24 days. Well, Heinz wants to celebrate his safe return home and help him buy a new boat…but we can’t seem to find him,” said the company in a recent Instagram post.
