The BBC is reporting a strange story today where a man walked into a police station in the UK and said that he was John Darwin was went missing more than 5 years ago and presumed drowned.

They found the remains of his shattered sea kayak washed up on a beach in Seaton Carew, near Hartlepool, in March 2002.

"It is not known at this time where he has spent the last five-and-a-half years," said a police spokesman.

Cleveland Police said that Mr Darwin, a married father-of-two, walked into the West End Central Police Station in London at 17.30 GMT last night (December 2, 2007).

The spokesman added: "Mr Darwin is fit and well and relatives have been informed of his whereabouts."

Hopefully we will find out more details about where he has been for the past 5.5 years.
