After almost two weeks of worrying a Newton mother can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The missing 20-year-old hitchhiker Daniel Landgrebe called his mother Saturday evening from Montana to tell her he was OK.

Apparently, Daniel had asked a friend to call his mother for him eight days ago. When he spoke with his mother he had no idea anyone was looking for him. His mom had him send her a photo of him to make sure it was Daniel. This is the photo he sent her.
