Mark Sanford disappears again? This time no 'Appalachian Trail' claim though.

Mark Sanford went on a vacation again without telling his lieutenant governor where he was going.

Mark Sanford, South Carolina's governor, disappeared again over Father's Day. This time he didn't go to Argentina to meet his 'soulmate,' however. He simply took time off without telling his lieutenant governor.

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is back in the office after again taking a vacation without telling the lieutenant governor where he was.

Sanford spokesman Ben Fox would not say Tuesday where the governor was, except to say he's been off.

Last June, Sanford disappeared and then returned to the state to say he had been in Argentina visiting a woman he later called his "soulmate." Sanford and his wife, Jenny, divorced in March.

Fox says Sanford spent most of the Father's Day weekend with his four sons and just took Monday off.

Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer said Monday no one told him where the governor was. Fox says the office doesn't do that because Sanford remains in contact with staff.
