Chippewa Falls (WQOW) - A Chippewa Falls man, who was reported missing since Monday, has been found.

News 18 spoke with Chippewa Falls Police Chief Matt Kelm, who said Zach M. Garbisch, 32, of Chippewa Falls, returned on his own to the New Hope Group Home on Thursday afternoon.

Chief Kelm said police issued a missing alert on Tuesday when Garbisch didn't return to the group home. He said there didn't appear to be a clear reason why Garbisch didn't return and where he may have went.

You may remember when Garbisch was reported missing in mid-April. News 18 reported on April 17 when police said he went missing from the group home after he told staff he was getting gas for his vehicle. Police said he never returned back to the group home. Officials found Garbisch a few days later on Highway 178 north of Chippewa Falls, where it appeared his vehicle ran out of gas.
