BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A former Marine accused of faking his disappearance to avoid returning to his unit has paid back most of the cost of the extensive search that occurred after a friend reported him missing.

Boulder County sheriff's officials say Lance Hering and his father, Loyd, presented the agency with checks totaling $30,705 on Thursday.

Hering, a lance corporal and Iraq war veteran, was on leave from Camp Pendleton, Calif., when he disappeared in 2006. At the time, his friend Steve Powers told authorities Hering was in a rock-climbing accident near Boulder and wandered away while Powers went for help. That prompted a 5-day search that cost $33,000.

Powers later admitted the report was a hoax.

The sheriff's office says Powers has paid more than $2,300 in restitution for the search, and Lance Hering and his father volunteered to pay the rest.
