Bug Description:

Followers sometimes just vanish, and say on the follower menu that they are ‘returning home’. I then often find them the last place which I left them for a significant amount of time. For example, I moved from the desert at the bottom of the map to the highlands - and the horse I rode there vanished and then appeared all the way back at my first base.

Bug Reproduction:

Not sure how to reproduce it, it happens somewhat rarely.

Returning home is an intended feature. If you set your thrall to stop following they will scout for a brief period of time before returning home. Home is wherever you last set them to guard. Also happens if you die.

As Darkzombie said, the “Stop following” command makes them stop following, and after a while they return to the last place where they were set to Guard. So if you want your thrall to stop following you and remain in place, you need to use the Guard command (ie. place them on the spot where you want them to remain) and not the Stop following command.

If you’re already doing this and your thrall still decides to randomly go home, I don’t know what could cause it.
