HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — A German tourist who went missing in a national park teeming with wild animals in northern Zimbabwe has been found alive and in “good health” along with his rental car three days later. A national parks agency spokesperson says the tourist had last been seen buying a drink at the park shop before going for a game drive Saturday afternoon. The spokesman says the car rental company failed to locate him on its GPS tracking system and authorities deployed a helicoptor, vehicles and sniffer dogs to search for him. There are no immediate details on how deep in the park he had ventured.
