Missing wayward tortoise returns home

TUCSON, Ariz. - Flash the tortoise has returned home.

Last week, KGUN9 told the story of the wayward tortoise who found a gap in the fence and wandered away from his midtown home.

His owner says Flash was probably looking for love.

Someone picked up the tortoise but wasn't able to care for him. He then placed Flash with someone who had other African Sulcata tortoises.

That man saw news stories about Flash's disappearance and returned him so now the traveling tortoise is home enjoying the strawberries he loves.
