A man who went missing in New York was later found 3,000 miles away and nobody knows how he got there.
49-year-old firefighter Constantinos 'Danny' Filippidis had been on an annual skiing trip with his colleagues when he suddenly disappeared without a trace, sparking a major search operation.

He inexplicably reappeared again six days later and 3,000 miles away in Sacramento with no knowledge of what had happened to him or how he had managed to get there.

Even more incredible was the fact that he was still wearing his skiing outfit when he was found.

"He related to the officers that he had been skiing in NY, he believed he had hit his head or had been hit in the head," said Sgt. Shaun Hampton. "He said he was dropped off by a truck driver, he said he slept a lot during the trip here, and he didn't have a lot of recollection of how he got from A to B."

"He was adamant that he was not the victim of any crime."

One of the many things about this does not make any sense . Now they are saying he had  head injury and traveled via Semi to California. Now with no money he bought a new iPhone. Yet he was found in the exact same clothes he left in. No mention what happened to his original phone or How he paid for new the phone. No bodily injuries  you would assume he would have with a head injury while

I don't believe his story.  He was attempting to do something he doesn't want anyone to know about.  Probably wanted to abandon his family or something and got caught before he could make it happen.  First thing you do is get as far away from your previous life as you can, don't use any credit cards or other ways of electronically tracking your location, then show up in a new location with a new identity and poof, you've disappeared to everyone you know.  People have been known to do this when life get's challenging and they just want to leave.  It's a dick move but people have done it, this g...

clearly he has found an unstable area in the fabric of space time, ski'd through it an came out the other side. With the continuing research into Higgs-Bosons i believe we are responsible for the weakening of the very fabric of our reality. these kind of cases will be more and more frequent over the coming years.   HAHA i'm messing with y'all, i made that up on the spot! can you imagine!  interesting article though!
