    There was no mention that he went to the store either just that he was last seen at his house so it's quite plausible that something happened to him and he was placed down the road in the woods and then his car placed at the shopping center to make people thing that's where he was last.

    I hope they find Mr Zelaya, albeit this wouldn't be the ideal way of finding him.

    The events just following his disappearance are so "WEIRD" (for a lack of a better word) that it's hard to guess what happened to him.

    With the checks and bank stuff it sounds like it was at least semi-planned, either by him or someone else. From what I've read, he wasn't acting any differently or showing any signs that "something was up."

    Missing
    George Robert "Skip" Zelaya



    This is all from from Zelaya's missing person thread:

    Joe Zelaya said his brother also filled out a change-of-mailing-address card Jan. 14, forwarding Skip's mail to his own home.

    Joe Zelaya said: "If he walked he wouldn't have left without any money in his pocket, with no watch or cell phone. He wouldn't do that. He wouldn't have left his tools in his truck."

    He said his brother had accumulated debts of about $100,000, but said those debts wouldn't cause him to disappear.

    "He was comfortable with the payments; that wouldn't be the reason," Zelaya said.

    She doesn't know what to think.

    "I think there was foul play, but I have no proof," Joe Zelaya said Monday.

    Also, his late brother seemed to be rather (fortunately, I suppose) uninformed about suicide...

    He didn't show any signs of being suicidal, but hiding or running off is fairly common (due to mental illness, shame, etc) in suicides.

    If it is him I'd have a hard time with the suicide theory because his car was found 4 miles away. I agree it is all bizarre though. Especially him forwarding his mail.

    The Citrus County Sheriff’s office began searching Monday for a body that has been missing for 20 years. However, as of Friday evening, the search had proved unfruitful...
    Yates said the tip, which was received some months ago, was from a source who claimed to have seen Register’s body...
    She said the search has been demanding, with officers combing through a flooded and heavily wooded area tangled in tree roots.

    Hernando Co borders Citrus Co to the south so that is a possibility also.

    Late yesterday, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office received a call reference bones being found deep in the woods off of S. Mason Creek Road and S Garcia Road in Homosassa. Lelland Nichols was the person who discovered the bones while walking through the wooded area. When deputies and detectives arrived on scene they were able to confirm that the discovered bones were in fact that of human remains. CCSO Forensics and detectives, along with the Medical Examiner’s Office, are working diligently to identify the remains and the circumstances behind them. It is too early to tell how old the person was at the time of death and whether or not this is a male or female. This area is being treated as a crime scene and investigators are expected to be working in this vicinity for several days. We will provide updates when they become available but at this time, we do not have any further details.
    (These photos are a CCSO exclusive and were taken from behind the crime scene tape.)

    George's daughter has commented on the CCSO FB post in the previous post. His family is anxiously waiting.

    Update on Citrus County Sheriffs office fb page.

    "This afternoon, the Medical Examiner’s Office notified detectives that the human remains that were discovered earlier this week belong to an older-aged adult male."

    It fits George Zelaya. I hope the family can get answers soon.
