Man missing for 3 months found safe

A Kansas man missing for more than three months has turned up alive and unharmed, CNN affiliate KMBC reports.

Luke Stevens, 23, of Tonganoxie, Kansas, disappeared May 26 from the home of his father, Dan Stevens, according to the Kansas City Star newspaper's website.

The father's 1983 pickup was found 50 miles from home not long after Stevens vanished, but there was no sign of Stevens, KMBC reported. Sheriff's deputies, volunteers, dogs and divers scoured fields, woods, lakes and streams multiple times to no avail, according to the Star.

Then late Thursday night, the phone rang at Dan Stevens' residence. It was his son calling from Kansas City, Missouri, to request a ride home, just like that, both outlets reported.

Stevens, who is 6-foot-5 and weighed 250 pounds when last seen, had lost a lot of weight and seemed disoriented, said his mother, Joyce Stevens, according to KMBC.

According to the Star's extensive story on the mystery, around 3 a.m. Friday, Dan Stevens issued a concise e-mail to family and friends:

"Luke is home and safe! Was living in the woods near Longview Lake. Thanks for all the support. Dan."

    After reading this article, i wondered to myself what did in fact ACTUALLY happen, now that I read the posted comments...Im left with more questions than the lack of facts pertaining to the article arose in the first place...its so funny, from a sociological stand point to sit back and observe human people blindly compassionate, some blindly aggressive and some mind knumbingly ignorant. I had a good time reading all these posts, couple of real gems, LMAO ps: hope luke and his family make it thru this fiasco in one piece and get some answers.

    *agreed – story is lacking
    *agreed – glad he is home safe
    *agreed – what happened is really none of our business (other than if a waste of our tax $ since evidentally most of us are saving the USA from the economic atrocities of our parents)
    *agreed – some judgmental and moronic comments

    But what I really don't understand is that with 160 comments how there is NO reference to a tornado, the land of Oz, munchkins...well, you get the idea – it was Kansas afterall!
