Julius Ssekitoleko, a Ugandan weightlifter who disappeared last week has been found.
He is being interrogated by Mie prefectural police in central Japan.
Police said the athlete was in the Yokkaichi city, 170 kilometers (105 miles) east of his host town in western Japan.
Police are asking him what happened since he fled his hotel in Izumisano in the Osaka prefecture Friday, leaving behind a note saying he didn’t want to return to his country.
On Monday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs engaged police and the government of Japan to investigate how Ssekitoleko got accreditation to represent Uganda at the Tokyo Olympic games.
He said they would send minister of State for Sports Hamson Obua to go to Japan and search for the missing athlete.
