Vaughn Flewelling has been found and is safe according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole. Flewelling was located out of state traveling on a Greyhound Bus.
Cole said a man was observed unloading Flewelling’s car for several minutes at an apartment complex in Muskegon on surveillance video recorded Monday morning. The car was reported as ‘suspicious’ by the apartment manager on Wednesday morning after it had been parked there for two days.
The plate on the car had not been changed from the previous owner. This triggered a review of video surveillance by law enforcement. The man in the apartment video could not be conclusively identified as Flewelling.
Video at a nearby Shell gas station showed the same man, but he still could not be identified. When the man walked to the nearby Wesco station, Cole said, the video was clearer and showed the man to be Flewelling.
The trail led to the Greyhound bus station and a bus bound for Grand Rapids, then a bus from Grand Rapids to Flewelling’s current location.
Authorities confirmed Flewelling is healthy and traveling under his own free will.
