CARLE PLACE, N.Y. (AP) — The wife of a New York man who was reported missing at a beach and then turned up hundreds of miles away says she found emails in which he discussed a plan to fake his own death.

Evana (ee-VAH'-nah) Roth said Friday that her husband, Raymond Roth, had sent his son Jonathan emails referring to the plot.

She provided copies at a news conference with her attorney. One instructs Jonathan to call his father Sunday in Florida to update him on developments in New York.

Jonathan Roth reported his father missing Saturday at Jones Beach. That set off an extensive search. On Thursday, Roth got a speeding ticket in South Carolina.

Police say Roth has said he plans to return to New York, but he hasn't surfaced. His son's whereabouts also are unknown.
