A Rochester Institute of Technology student who went missing just before Thanksgiving was found three weeks later. According to foxnews, he went to the mountains without a phone and wallet, which scared his parents.

Matthew Grant was seen driving away from his off-campus home in Henrietta, New York, on November 20, after which he disappeared for several weeks, leaving behind his phone and wallet.

Grant's family suspected he may have gone to the Adirondack Mountains after he disappeared, based on the search history on his phone. The 22-year-old college student apparently told his roommates he was going out with friends shortly before he disappeared from Rochester.

Authorities in Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania, located the vehicle of the 22-year-old Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) student from Michigan and began a search in the area of ​​Mincy Mountain, accessible via the Appalachian Trail.

National Park Service spokeswoman Kathleen Sundt confirmed that rangers and staff from the Delaware Water Gap National Park and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, both divisions of the NPS, are involved in the search for Grant.

The Return of the Prodigal Son

For three whole weeks the guy kept his parents and friends in the dark. It is still unknown where he was all this time. Matthew said that as soon as he learned that authorities were looking for him, he went to the Palmerton police station to call his mother and let her know he was safe. Palmerton is located nearly 480 miles southeast of Rochester. Sundt added that the guy came into the police station and said he believed someone was looking for him, and NPS Rangers facilitated the student's return home.

“Missing student Matthew Grant has been found and is safe. His family posted on social media thanking everyone for their help in finding their son, who disappeared Nov. 20 from Henrietta, New York,” said Sandra Johnson, RIT senior vice president for student affairs.
