FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — The search for a missing New York man is over.

Earl Wilcox, 70, was reported missing by a group of friends he was visiting in Fayetteville earlier in the week. They became concerned after Wilcox failed to show up for a golf tournament on Monday.

Deputies in Cumberland County soon began a search for the missing man. Wilcox returned to Fayetteville unharmed late Tuesday night. He told investigators he had gone to Myrtle Beach, S.C.

No charges will be filed in the case.
