    FL - Salvatore Gambino, 82, Clermont, 22 May 2015

    82-year-old wheelchair-bound man still missing
    posted: May 25, 2015 11:52 am

    The search continues for an 82-year-old, wheelchair-bound man who was last seen Friday afternoon at the intersection of Hunt Street and Grand Avenue.

    Authorities on Monday were manning a command post on Hunt Street just south of the Citrus Tower as they searched for Salvatore Gambino, who is paralyzed on one side.

    According to the man’s family, Gambino does have his mental faculties intact, but he gets disoriented easily. He speaks only a little English but is fluent in Italian.

    Searches have been conducted by helicopter, teams of volunteers and a dive team in nearby lakes, and officers have done multiple neighborhood canvasses as well as viewed surveillance videos from nearby businesses, Strickland said.
    More at the link. My heart is breaking for him and his family. Hoping that he has managed to stay safe until they can be reunited.
