The 53-year-old man who mysteriously disappeared during halftime at a Denver Broncos game on Thursday was safely located more than 100 miles from the stadium last night, police announced. In a brief Twitter statement, they noted Paul Kitterman was found safe, that there were no indications of foul play, and that it would be "inappropriate" to comment. Questions were directed toward the family, who the Denver Post reports had no immediate comment.

The owner of Pueblo's Benfatti Furniture called police after spotting Kitterman yesterday; he was later found outside a Kmart. Per KDVR and 9News, he reportedly told local police he had had enough football and wanted to get away and be in a warm place, but didn't explain how he got to Pueblo (it was previously reported that he had no credit cards on him.) He was described as coherent. A friend who rode with Kitterman and his stepson to the game says he wasn't drunk on Thursday and didn't have mental health issues. It was supposed to be the first game Kitterman saw with his stepson. (More Denver Broncos stories.)
