A Turkish man who was reported missing unknowingly joined search parties in search of himself.
Local media reported that Beyhan Mutlu, who lives in the Inegöl district of Bursa province in northwestern Turkey, was believed to be missing on Tuesday.
He had wandered away from his friends in a forest while drunk, according to the Daily Sabah website.
His wife and friends reported him missing after they were unable to contact him for several hours.
Mutlu, 50, later joined a group in the area that was helping authorities search for him.
When members of the search party started shouting his name, he replied, “I’m here.”
The authorities then took his statement before taking him home, NTV reported.
It was unclear if he faced any sanctions.
