Missing Mbooni West Officer Commanding Station Police Abraham Borborei has returned to his working station.
He was arrested on arrival at his work station Friday night.
He however went without a government vehicle he was driving after it was detained in Nairobi.
Borborei had driven the official car to the police Driving School in industrial area, Nairobi and registered it as being under repair after it developed mechanical problems.
Police at the yard detained it on learning it had no mechanical problem and was wanted in Mbooni.
Officials said Borborei returned to his working station on Friday night and plans were underway for an administrative action against him after he was arrested.
"He is fine but under arrest and back to work but without the police vehicle which is detained in Nairobi after an earlier alert," said an officer aware of the probe but who asked not to be named.
The official said the action by the OCS was not the first one. He has apparently been vanishing with the vehicle without authorisation.
The officer said the OCS told them he had stress from his family that he rushed to deal with.
Police had been put on high alert across the country after the OCS disappeared with the OCPD’s official car without authorisation.
For one to leave with a government vehicle he or she needs authorization.
The alert by Mbooni OCPD J Barasa says the OCS could not be traced on phone after he vanished on Thursday.
The officer was driving himself in the Grand Tiger vehicle registration number GKB 104D.
“Up to now on September 2, 2016 his whereabouts are not known…efforts to trace him through his mobile numbers have been all in vain,” reads the alert, seen by Nairobi News.
“Please trace him and detain the said motor vehicle. He is also armed with a ceska (pistol). Disarm him and then inform this end for necessary action.”
This sent his colleagues on alert leading to the detention of the vehicle at the driving school.
