Turkish man's wife called authorities after he went drinking with a friend of his. Luckily, he was found... Well, by himself actually.
a scene worthy of a comedy movie, a Turkish man joined a search party for a missing person not realizing the individual being searched for was him.
Beyhan M, 51 years old, went drinking with a friend in a forest in the town of Inegol, northwest Turkey, late Tuesday. His wife reported him missing to the police after realizing he hadn't returned home. She was told he had walked away from his friend, and he was drunk too.
Gendarmerie and rescue teams were called in to find Beyhan, who had actually gone to sleep in a house in the forest, Turkish news site T24 reported on Friday.
In the morning, he came across members of the search party and decided to help them find the missing person. He realized he was the focus of the search when they began calling his name.
“After a while, they said they were looking for Beyhan Mutlu,” T24 quoted him as saying. “I broke into a cold sweat when I heard my name.”
“I told them I was Beyhan Mutlu, but they continued to search,” Mutlu continued. “They didn’t believe me. The truth came out when my friend Mesut saw me.”
Mutlu told the news channel he was part of the search team for more than half an hour. This is not comedy folks, it is indeed very real.
