A Shoreview man who disappeared last week after telling his wife he'd been kidnapped was found safe Friday in Las Vegas, Nev.
Authorities said Matthew William Anderson, 29, had not been abducted.
Las Vegas police said the missing man was hospitalized after he was found about 6 a.m. in a construction area for a new office building about a mile west of downtown.
Police declined to comment on why Anderson was taken to a hospital and whether he was alone or had transportation.
But the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department, which is handling the case, said he was in "good medical condition."
No criminal charges have been filed against Anderson, said sheriff's office spokeswoman Holli Drinkwine.
There was no false report to police because Anderson hadn't called police and his family had reported him missing because they believed he was in danger, she said.
He left Minnesota "on his volition and traveled to Nevada via Chicago," according to a sheriff's office news release.
Nobody answered the phone at Anderson's home Friday evening.
But his father, William Anderson, said, "I don't know anything more than Matthew is alive; he is physically OK. He's a little bruised ... a little worse for wear."
William Anderson said his son's wife, two brothers and "a few other people" were bringing him home, though he said he did not know where Anderson was Friday evening.
"There have been a lot of people praying for him, a lot of people with nothing but
optimism and positive vibes, and ... Matthew is the same way," his father said.
Anderson withdrew $1,000 from a Roseville bank a half-hour before he was last seen Sept. 17, the sheriff's office said this week. He appeared to be alone at the time.
