Italian Man Missing Since Glastonbury 2011 Found Wandering The English Countryside - Wunderground An Italian man was last night reunited with his family after over two years wandering the English countryside.

Mostly men themselves, the activists wore matching fluoro jackets with "Harassment Prevention" scrawled across their backs in Arabic.
