A Brit was found in a pub in Kenya downing mugs of beer after going missing for four days.
It's understood that Nelson Newberry, 22, lives and works in Nairobi, Kenya, and his disappearance ignited a sizeable police manhunt after he went missing on Tuesday (December 6).
The 22-year-old was last seen going to a shopping mall in order to buy a SIM card replacement as police officers from Kenya's crime forces went to work to find the Brit.

According to footage taken on the day the Brit went missing, Nelson was seen wearing a black T-shirt and carrying a bag in Nairobi's Sarit shopping centre.
Four days after vanishing, detectives "stormed" a pub on the outskirts of Nairobi and managed to retrieve Nelson who was seen drinking beer with new friends.
Nelson's dad made the eight-hour plane trip to Kenya when he first heard of his son's disappearance and the pair were photo'd as they reunited.
Detectives from the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau are the ones credited with finding Nelson after his four-day bender.
