S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford is on an outdoors getaway with a few close friends, sources tell FITS.

The second-term Republican – whose absence turned into a national obsession earlier today – is at an undisclosed location in the continental U.S. with a group that has embarked on similar outdoor getaways in the past.

A specific location for Sanford’s party was provided to FITS, but we have been unable to independently confirm it at this point.
