Though he thought about going back towards the group and informing them of what he found, he figured now would be the best time to possibly locate and contact the golem, without any risk of the Lanterns' intervention. It was risky. Dangerous, even, but if he could prove his peaceful intent, then maybe, just maybe the golem could be reasoned with, as it didn't seem to be acting mindlessly.

As such he followed the tracks and hopped down into the sewers, continuing to try and track the golem and hopefully find it before anyone else could.
