Thank you very much - I just received a message from Yorkshire Police to say that [the missing cyclist] has turned up. Very grateful for help.

Lucky he is alright. Those message scares me a little bit!
I am very happy to see that the missing one is found again.
Who knows what happened? Too far from technology to connect? Too engaged in the local scene to call? Too forgetful of the folks back home?
Whatever the reason, his location is known and the folks back home are happy again.
Just wanted to give an update.
I was in brazil, heading for a farm to do some volunteering, I thought the farm had internet, and so didnt mention to my sister that I would be out of touch for a while, which I usually do. Then the farm turned out to be 20k deep into sugar cane plantations from the nearest town, work hours didnt allow me to make that 20k ride after work. The farm didnt have internet, and I wasnt online for my birthday and so my family gradually started to freak out.
now after 2.5 years my ride has finally come to an end and I'm home!
