Drunk Man Who Was Reported Missing Helps In The Search For Himself

Authorities in Turkey have been baffled after a missing persons search ended with good news but with a strange twist.

According to local media, Beyhan Mutlu had been drinking with pals in the rural neighbourhood of Çayyaka near the city of İnegöl.

NTV reports the 50-year-old had wandered into woodlands and never came back, which sparked concern amongst his mates.

They raised the alarm with police, who called in search and rescue teams from the Bursa region to help locate the missing man.

Word about Beyhan's disappearance spread through the neighbourhood and residents elected to join the search party in the hope that more eyes would find him faster.

NTV explained that the search and rescue teams were calling out Mutlu's name repeatedly until someone in the search party called out: "Who are we looking for? I am here."

Lo and behold, it was Beyhan.

You can imagine everyone's surprise and shock when the person they were looking for this whole time ended up being with them.

It's not yet clear how Mutlu wasn't aware his friends had reported him missing, nor do local media explain how his pals didn't recognise their mate in the search party.

But the important thing was that the 50-year-old man was safe. Police escorted him home and had to write up a report about the bizarre evening.
