(CNN) - A young man authorities originally thought had been rescued from his home in Japan after being trapped for eight days actually had been staying in a shelter, the Japan Self-Defence Forces said Saturday.
The man had been visiting his home temporarily when rescuers found him, the forces said.
Kyodo News reported that the man had been staying in a shelter since the quake and tsunami hit the coastal city of Kesennuma on March 11. He returned home around noon Friday to clean it up, Kyodo reported, citing his family.
