A rather bizarre story about a skier that went missing in New York and ended up in California.

Constantinos Filippidis was reported missing during a ski trip in New York on February 7th. He was found in California six days later.

The Toronto firefighter says he has no idea how he got there. When he was found he was still in his ski gear. 

How he ended up 4500 km away remains a mystery.

Authorities are trying to piece together what had happened. He remembers suffering a head injury and was in a big truck that dropped him off in Sacramento where he got a haircut.
