  'Dead man' turns up alive after family wrongly ID body A man whose family thought he was dead after wrongly identifying a body has turned up alive. The man's wife and her relatives mistakenly told police in Japan that the body of a man found in a river was him and officers even handed it over to them.The mix-up only came to light when the woman's husband, who is in his 40s, returned alive to Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, last month.It turned out the body, which was found about a year ago, was actually that of a missing Tokyo man in his 30s.

Local police, volunteers and SES in boats launched a search with the help of a helicopter following reports on Tuesday night the 45-year-old had fallen into the river and hadn't been seen since.

Police are now trying to piece together his movements before his death.
