Berkeley police have called off the search for a missing bicyclist after a hotel clerk in Roseville reported seeing him on Tuesday night, a  police sergeant said.
   
Anthony Michael Martin, 29, was supposed to meet his girlfriend, Amaya James, on Saturday night, but never did, James said.

    James and her parents began searching for Martin Saturday night, thinking the Berkeley physicist might have been riding his bicycle in the  Oakland or Berkeley hills.
   
Police Sgt. Mary Kusmiss said the hotel clerk confirmed that Martin was staying in the Roseville area after police sent the clerk a photo  of him. The clerk said Martin had his bicycle with him.
   
Kusmiss said it appears Martin left for personal reasons.
   
"Martin did not appear to be in distress and as an adult, he is legally allowed to make the choices he has made," she said.
   
Berkeley police said they have advised James and her and family that Martin is no longer considered a missing person.
