A missing French tourist who led to a massive search and rescue operation in a famous national park, actually camped in a cave and wrote a children's book.

Yann Buriet, 31, was last seen camping at Gunlom Falls in Kakadu National Park, in the Northern Territory, on August 17, which led to a large-scale search for land and sky.

But Mr. Buriet actually camped in a rock overhang with sufficient food and water supplies, unaware of the emergency mission around him.

The French traveler spent five days on the well-hidden rock before returning to his white Mitsubishi van on Thursday at 8.40 a.m.
