Paul Kitterman, the Denver man who disappeared during halftime at last Thursday's Broncos game, was found on Tuesday night.
The 53-year-old told police he hitchhiked south because he'd had "his fill of football," and wanted to find somewhere warm to relax, according to an ABC News affiliate.
Kitterman's stepson, Jarod Tonneson, told police his stepfather did not have his cell phone or much cash with him when he disappeared.
Someone recognized Kitterman in Pueblo, Colorado, more than 100 miles from Mile High Stadium. Local police met him in the parking lot of a KMart at around 6:30 p.m.
