    Thank you so much for posting. Tom Mascaro is my uncle. A very large family is extremely worried about him and doing everything we can think of to circulate the story and speed up his return.

    Our Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/FindTomMascaro We greatly appreciate anyone who takes the time to share it and the flier and other information on it.

    I'll point my family here to read through your "Missing Persons" resources and suggestions, and to familiarize ourselves with other missing persons in our respective areas.

    Thank you so much, again.

    Hello ChrisW228, and welcome to WebSleuths! I am so sorry that it is under the circumstances.

    The below link is a good starting place, as it contains "checklists" of what to do when a loved one is missing.

    Thank you for the link and for anything that helps us gain exposure.

    I did share a PDF checklist that I found here with the family. I'll share that link immediately, too.

    Marion County Sheriff's Office needs the community's assistance to help find Thomas Edward Mascaro, 64, who lives in the Oak Run subdivision. Mr. Mascaro is a white male, 5-foot, 8 inches tall, weighs about 200 pounds, with gray hair, a full beard and brown eyes. He has possibly been missing for two weeks. Mr. Mascaro's home was checked and deputies found his car in the garage, and his driver's license, debit card and cash inside the home. Mr. Mascaro was born in Pennsylvania and reportedly has been trying to contact his brother for the last four months. At the same time, other siblings have been trying to contact Mr. Mascaro by phone and by computer, with no results. Mr. Mascaro has been known to walk various trails in the Greenway. A relative told investigators, Mr. Mascaro will sometimes travel the trails all the way to Pruitt Trailhead and may walk sections of the trail all the way to Ocklawaha. If you see Mr. Mascaro, please call 911.

    Places to check, and/or distribute flyer.

    • Hospitals (probably will not give anyone but police specific information, due to HIPAA laws)
    • Shelters
    • Soup kitchens

    ChrisW228, do you know if police have gone through Tom's computer/cell phone records?

    If yes, was there anything of interest found that you are permitted to share with everyone?

    Thank you. The sheriff's office checked most places and several of my other uncles went to continue searching and contacting places like those.

    The police and family went through everything thoroughly. Nothing at all was found. Family says the same thing the articles say - that all of his personal belongings were exactly as they always are and you'd expect to turn a corner and find him relaxing at home.

    As cliche as it sounds, it's like he just vanished into thin air.

    Hi ChrisW228, sorry about your uncle.

    Can you post what you know about the circumstances of him being missing?
    Did he live alone? Were the trails within walking distance?

    Have you contacted any hiking groups or clubs in the area? At the very least you could send them flyers so they can keep an eye out.

    Perhaps you can check with the local Comm. Colleges and see about any outdoor groups you may be able to alert and pass flyers.

    ChrisW228, do you know if the Marion County Sheriff's Office is open to the idea of external search and rescue organizations assisting?

    The below organization is well respected, and perform their services nationwide.

    Also, does the Marion County Sheriff's Office have search dogs?
