    Robert John Mortimer

    Deputies search for missing newspaper delivery driver
    A 22-year-old man was reported missing after not completing his Orlando Sentinel delivery route, an Orange County Sheriff's spokeswoman said. Robert John Mortimer left the Winter Garden home where he lives with his family around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, said his mother, Melinda Motley Mortimer. He told his mother "I love you" and drove away in his 2006 black two-door Ford Focus. "Nothing was out of the ordinary, nothing was out of character," Motley Mortimer said.Robert Mortimer picked up the newspapers from a distribution center on Hanging Moss Road, according to Lourdes Clayton, sheriff's office spokeswoman. But Mortimer did not finish his Orlando newspaper route, which goes through 55 West, The Vue and other downtown addresses, Clayton said. "We do know some papers were delivered, but we don't know where," his mother said. Robert Mortimer has never disappeared before, his mother said. "It's totally out of character for him, and he would let me or his sister know if anything was wrong, or if he was going to be out at someone's house," his mother said. "…He's a good kid. Not into the drug scene, not into partying, nothing. He's a good boy. Very nice, friendly, outgoing."

    Robert Mortimer was born and raised in central Florida. He attended Winter Park High School and earned a high school equivalency degree from Daytona Beach Community College, Motley Mortimer said.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    New at this. Think the link will show up though. Car was found downtown with no sign of Robert. Does anyone know the area? Article says it was close to downtown. Possible that he was delivering to a high rise condo or office building and something happened. Hope all stairwells/roofs have been checked. Always baffles me how some of these missing person cases get so much MSM attention and ones like this that get hardly anything. Hoping Robert can be found alive and well. -jeff

    This is very sad. I get the impression that he felt like his life was going nowhere. But 24 is too young. I wish someone had known. I would have been his best friend ever.
