A man who was at work…and then disappeared, led police on a goose chase before the man 'fessed up and said his claim he was stuck in a dumpster was a joke.
Just after 8 p.m. on Nov. 7, an Elyria man began contacting a co-worker at his Avon employment that he was stuck in a dumpster, and indicated that he was hiding in the dumpster at McDonald’s.
After a search turned up no sign of the man, his home in Elyria was checked with no sign of the missing man, who did not have a car. Police also checked area businesses including Costcos.
His family eventually located the man, who claimed to be in Lorain and added that he was fine and “just joking around.”
