    FL - Randall Scott Byrd- Daytona Beach- Quadriplegic- 17 DEC 2011

    Randall Scott Byrd, who turned 45 this month, was reported missing on Dec. 17, but no one had actually seen or heard from him since Dec. 10, police said.
    Byrd was last seen at the Desert Inn, 900 N. Atlantic Ave., investigators said. Police said it's believed Byrd got into a white van with several people...
    He is a quadriplegic following a car accident 24 yrs ago. It is believed that the white van he might have gotten into with several people was going to Lake County.

    He speaks to his Mother everyday by phone prior to going missing. He is the Father of two children and a Grandfather also.

    He has been on heavy pain med for much of his life, the docs were trying to wean him off, if he's gone this long without them he might be having withdrawals.

    His family believes that his pain meds that he carried with him might have played a role in his going missing.

    R.I.P. Mr. Byrd

    I hope that justice is found in this case. It is unbelievable that people would take advantage of a disabled man. With these specifics, it sounds like foul play.

    body was found in Ocala Jan. 17. On Feb. 1, family members learned that DNA testing had confirmed the partially decomposed body was that of Byrd.
    ........
    found Byrd's body in a wooded patch about 10 yards off the pavement behind the Love's Travel Stop, a truck stop at Interstate 75 and County Road 326.


    The family has also learned Byrd's wheelchair was found Dec. 15 alongside C.R. 326, about five miles from where the body was found a month later.
