A U.S. Coast Guardsman who was declared a missing person more than three months ago suddenly just showed up at his home in Hawaii, according to police in Honolulu.
Last October, Petty Officer First Class Russell Matthews' car and slippers were found at the out-of-the-way area of Kaena Point. His hat was in the water. The Coast Guard searched 10,000 square miles in two days, but there was no sign of him.
Matthews reappeared out of thin air at his North Shore Oahu home on Sunday night, police told The Associated Press
. The 36-year-old was reportedly incoherent and taken immediately to the hospital, where Coast Guard investigators confirmed his identity, according to police reports.
Coast Guard Spokesperson Lt. Gene Maestas told the AP that no one knows where Matthews was or what he was doing since his wife reported him missing Oct. 9.
Matthews, who has served as a Coast Guardsman since 1997, was under investigation for marijuana use at the time of his disappearance, according to CBS News
"We'll try to find out why he disappeared and all the details surrounding his case," Maestas told the AP.
Sources told CBS News that Matthews was going through a difficult time. In 2008, he lost four colleagues in a helicopter crash. In 2009, his first wife was critically hurt when she was hit by a car while riding her bike. In 2011, she reportedly took her own life.
Matthews remarried after his first wife's death. The Coast Guard assisted her during his disappearance.
Matthews is being reinstated to his job as an aviation survival technician, CBS News reported, but his return to work is contingent on the results of his medical evaluation.
No criminal charges are expected to be filed unless fraud is suspected.
