    FL - Earl Becker, Starke, 5 May 2017

    Earl Becker, is missing and elderly. He was last seen at approximately 8:30 a.m. Friday morning.

    Becker was possibly last spotted at the Kangaroo Express in Starke at the intersection of US Highway 301 and State Road 16 at approximately 7:30 p.m. Friday evening.

    Becker was last seen wearing a multi-colored plaid short sleeved shirt, blue jeans, black slippers and possibly a baseball cap that had "Jesus" printed on the front.

    Becker has various medical issues and it is imperative that he be found in a timely manor(sic).

    It is believed that Becker is traveling on foot.

    I did a quick google search of his name, and an address in Starke came up. If this is actually his address, I really hope he didn't walk all the way to the gas station--it's 3 miles and the Florida sun is not very forgiving. Also, if he took the route google maps recommended, he would be crossing over "Alligator Creek" (it looks like there's a small overpass there). I wonder if he usually did a lot of walking? He would've passed quite a few businesses (including a bank), so I would check the security tapes if possible.

    I also wonder if they meant "flip-flops" or "sandals" when they said "black slippers"... most people in FL wear flip-flops on a regular basis, but slippers (house shoes) seem like a bad choice for such a long walk.

    Of course, I have no proof of his residence, route, or physical ability; these are just my initial thoughts.

    I would assume that based on his "various medical issues", whatever they may be, i assume he couldn't go through a 3 mile walk in the Florida sun. Hopefully he didn't pass out on his walk
    Mostly my opinion.
