(Newser) – A Swiss tourist took LSD at Disneyland Paris, fell into a lake, then disappeared for hours before turning up naked more than a mile away. It must've been quite a trip, though the 32-year-old engineer's memory is faulty. Indeed, he couldn't recall the events of Friday evening when he was found walking naked, with scratches all over his body, in the town of Chessy early Saturday, per the Washington Post. The Swiss man, who admitted to taking LSD for a bet, was barefoot "in the middle of the road" and "did not have a centimeter of clothes on him," according to the resident who found him.

The resident gave the man clothes and drove him back to the park around 1am, per the Post. By that time, police officers, firefighters, divers, dogs, a helicopter, and some 80 Disneyland employees had spent hours searching for him. His 30-year-old girlfriend, who reportedly gave him the hallucinogenic drug, had sounded the alarm around 8:30pm. She reported that her boyfriend had fallen into a man-made lake in Adventureland and failed to surface. Both were eventually arrested for narcotics use, per the Orange County Register. However, they were released with a warning on Saturday afternoon. (Read more Disneyland Paris stories.)
