Very interesting - found wandering arounf a parking lot.
Sgt Kim Buffett, of Honolulu Police, said detectives had no reason to pursue the case as it is not against the law to be missing, she said. She said the police case was closed now that Mr Matthews has been found.
His car was discovered at Kaena Point, a remote area of Oahu.
