A drunk man that was reported missing went on a search to find himself... not in a philosophical way, he literally joined his own search party.
According to local media, 50-year-old Turkish man Beyhan Mutlu wandered into the woods after having a few bevvies with his mates. After not returning for a while, his friends got worried and called the cops.
The cops lodged a missing persons report and a search operation was launched. Members of the community also joined in the search in hopes to find Mutlu quicker.
Mutlu joined a bunch of volunteers to help search for the missing person. Little did he know, it was him they were searching for.
As reported by NTV, the seach and rescue teams were calling out Mutlu's name repeatedly, when he replied, "Who are we looking for? I am here."
The bloke was so wasted he didn't even realise he'd joined his own search party!
Police took a statement from Mutlu, drove him home, and wrote up a report about the bizarre evening.
To be honest, we're not really sure how nobody caught on that the man they were looking for was right in front of them. Either way, helluva story.
