A drunken man who was presumed missing joined his own search party, assuming the group was looking for someone else.

Authorities responded to reports of a man who went missing in a forest in the rural city of Inegol in Turkey, according to Turkish news station NTV.

Beyhan Mutlu, 50, reportedly left his friends after a night of drinking and walked into the forest.

After several attempts to call Mr Mutlu over several hours, the alarm was raised and teams got together to start the search.

Mr Mutlu eventually came across local residents who were involved in the search effort and not knowing who they were looking for, decided to join in.

According to the Evening Standard, Mr Mutlu spent hours working with the teams.

It wasn't until he heard them call out his own name that he asked who they were looking for and responded.

The search teams prepared a report about the search and they dropped Mr Mutlu at his home, NTV reported.
