    FL - Franklin Silcox, 33, Eureka, 10 Dec 2014

    EUREKA --
    Franklin Wayne Silcox Jr., 33, is known to everyone in the forest community of Eureka as Lil’ Wayne because of his size, just 5 feet tall and 130 pounds. Deputies are still asking for help to find him. They searched by air, by land and by boat Friday in the Ocala National Forest community of Eureka, looking for Silcox. He left his home near Graveyard Lake about a half mile from the Ocklawaha River around 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, and never returned. Silcox was last seen on a boat ramp. K-9 teams searched several tracks from the boat ramp and the home.
    While Fish and Wildlife officers used boats with side sonar scanner to search a mile of the river, divers also got in the chilly water but found nothing.

    Unlike Thursday and Friday when members of the MCSO's Underwater Recovery Team spent hours in the water — with the use of sonar in one instance — looking to see if Silcox was there, officials did not use any divers on Saturday.
    Deputies are asking residents to look in their sheds, barns or any other areas and to keep an eye out for either anything unusual.

    Around 4 p.m., a boater contacted the Marion County Sheriff's Office after finding a body in the river north of County Road 316, according to a Sheriff's Office report. Deputies were already in the area searching for Franklin Wayne Silcox Jr., 33. They responded to the scene and pulled the body out of the water.

    According to the Sheriff's Office, the recovered body was wearing clothing that matched the description of the apparel Silcox was last seen wearing. A wallet recovered from the scene also held Silcox's identification.

    RIP. The guy was too young for this, and he had dealt with a lot of health problems, it seems. So sad. It sounds like his walks were real adventures. I wish he were around to tell us about them.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    He has been positively identified as Franklin Wayne Silcox, Jr. The medical examiner has deemed this an accidental drowning at this time.
    RIP Lil' Wayne.
