A happy but still somewhat vague ending to the story of a missing soldier. After finishing his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Matthew Segur, 39, was headed home to Texas via Chicago. His British Airways flight arrived at O'Hare International Airport on Monday, but the flight he was to have taken to Dallas the same day was cancelled due to weather, NBC Chicago reports. Segur was rescheduled to fly on American Airlines on Wednesday, but it seems he didn't board that flight—and as of reports out this morning, friends and family hadn't heard from him since Monday, and his girlfriend had reported him missing.

But the Chicago Tribune reports he has been found "safe and unharmed" in Texas. It's so far unclear how he got there, though officials had previously noted that Segur could have driven home. (More Matthew Segur stories.)
