A USS Wasp sailor who has been missing for a week was found safely Saturday night in Colorado, according to his sister.
Cassidy Brady said her brother Gage Brady, 20, turned himself in to police in Colorado Springs.
“He was just heading west. And he decided he was gonna turn himself in,” she said in a text message Sunday.
Ed Buice, a Naval Criminal Investigative Service spokesman, said when Gage Brady was questioned about his unauthorized absence, he told officers “he just decided to drive to Colorado and gave his phone to an unknown individual so he would not be tracked.”
“Brady’s command is taking the necessary steps to have him returned back to Norfolk,” Buice said in an email.
Brady was last seen June 11 when he told a friend he was going to pick up another friend at a bar, Buice said. Brady was reported missing last Monday by his family.
Buice said when police called Brady’s phone, a man answered and told officers he found it outside a 7-Eleven near Ocean View.
Brady’s debit card were used at an ATM, gas station and Walmart in Kentucky and at a gas station and McDonald’s in Missouri.
Police did not confirm whether he was the one using the card.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.

Radio transmissions to the U.S. Coast Guard are usually calls for help from boaters, but one captain got on the radio recently just to say thanks to the men and women who are currently working without pay.
DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump traveled to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on Saturday to receive the remains of four Americans killed in a suicide bombing in northern Syria.
Trump, locked in a battle with congressional Democrats that has led to a nearly month-long partial government shutdown, announced his trip via a pre-dawn tweet, saying he was going "to be with the families of 4 very special people who lost their lives in service to our Country!"
Former President George W. Bush is calling for an end to the partial government shutdown, which is about to hit the one-month mark and is currently the longest shutdown in US history.
In an appeal made on Instagram, the 43rd president called on "leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown." The caption was posted with an image of him and former First Lady Laura Bush giving pizza to their Secret Service detail.
