Friends and family of a Salinas college basketball player have been worried sick about him for weeks.
Preston Anderson, a 6'9" player for Hartnell College was last seen by his college roommate on July 23 as he drove off on his 2009 Yamaha 1100 motorcycle.
Everyone described Anderson as a responsible young man who would never leave without telling someone.
Now, according to police, Anderson has surfaced in the Central American country of Belize having a summer to remember.
Anderson's mother told KSBW in Salinas that Salinas police tracked her son through his debit card and found it was used a hotel in Belize on August 3 and 4.
When police called the hotel, the staff said that a 6'9" man has indeed spent two nights there last week.
On Wednesday, police told KSBW they now think Anderson is simply on a road trip through California, Mexico and Central America on his motorcycle and because he's an adult they no longer consider him a missing person.
