Daily US Times: A missing man in Turkey accidentally joined his own search party for hours and then realised he was the person they were looking for.

According to local media reports, Beyhan Mutlu had been drinking with friends on Tuesday when he wandered into a forest in Bursa province.

His wife and friends alerted local authorities when he failed to return and a search party was sent out.

NTV reported that Mutlu, 50, then stumbled across the search party and decided to join them.

But when members of the search team began calling out his name, he replied: “I am here.”

Mr Mutlu was taken aside by one of the rescuer workers to give a statement.

He reportedly told them: “Don’t punish me too harshly, officer. My father will kill me.”

Police then drove Mr Mutlu home and It is unclear if he was given a fine.
