A young man from Mongolia who went missing from Maplewood last month has turned up safe in Baltimore. Police say the Mongolian embassy was instrumental in finding him.

Dulguun Sukhee, 20, left his apartment on Dec. 21, telling his roommate he was headed for the Maplewood library. He never turned up there and didn't return home or to work, so the roommate called the police.

Maplewood Police Detective Kerry Daniels had told the Daily RFT earlier this month that the posters bearing Suhkee's image plastered around the city weren't generating any leads.

"We just got contacted -- he's in Maryland," Kerry tells the Daily RFT today."The embassy found out he was missing and put fliers around."
