Missing Fisherman Turns Up After Two Years
A 25 year old Swede who disappeared at sea in southern Norway two years ago, has turned up alive in southern Sweden.
A major search operation failed to turn up the man or his rented motorboat after he went fishing in heavy weather in September 2003. Alerts were sent out in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, and police have been in contact with the man’s parents, who have given no indication they knew he was still alive.
But when police in southern Sweden stopped a man during a routine check Tuesday, they discovered he was listed in Norway as missing.
According to reports he has been living a normal life in the area, and is not suspected of any crime…although the owner of the boat says he will be suing, and the Norwegian police are considering whether to bill him for the cost of the search operation.
