    Still missing. Perhaps he's undercover on an extended mission.

    I'm not a mod, but we are not allowed to discuss comments made on articles or social media. Anyone can post things on news articles. Those comments are considered rumors. You can say "interesting comment on this article" to point it out to us but that is about all you can say. If you think a comment is true and you want to discuss it here then send it to a reporter and ask them to look into it. Sometimes they do put it in a story and then we can discuss what the media reports on.

    I found a copy of the police report. I will not post as it contains the name of his landlord, who has been cleared. But if you Google his first and last name you can find it on the document cloud website link that shows up for your personal reading as one of the first few "hits" on his name.

    Paoletti, circa 2017

    • Missing Since05/30/2017
    • Missing FromEdgewater, Florida
    • ClassificationEndangered Missing
    • Date of Birth08/23/1972 (46)
    • Age44 years old
    • Height and Weight6'0, 170 pounds
    • Medical ConditionsPaoletti suffers from ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and depression, and takes medication to control his conditions. His loved ones thought his conditions were being well-managed at the time of his disappearance.
    • Distinguishing CharacteristicsCaucasian male. Black hair, brown eyes. Paoletti wears prescription eyeglasses. His nickname is Steve.
    Details of Disappearance
    Paoletti was last seen in Edgewater, Florida on May 29, 2017, and he had contact with his girlfriend by text message on May 30. They had plans to meet at her home for a Memorial Day cookout, and Paoletti said he'd bring a watermelon. He texted that he was having car trouble, but sent another text a short time later saying he'd taken care of it.

    He never showed up at his girlfriend's house that night and never called, texted or emailed her, which is uncharacteristic of his behavior. He has never been heard from again. His girlfriend reported him missing four days later.

    At the time of his disappearance, Paoletti worked freelance security jobs and also as a private investigator, specializing in judgment collections. He lived in a camper on a small farm the 1700 block of Hideaway Lane in Edgewater, but was in the process of moving out after getting into a tenant dispute with his landlord, who lived in the farmhouse.

    When police went to his residence, they found his car parked there, with the hood up and a battery charger attached. His cellular phones were inside his camper, and there was no evidence of a struggle. His landlord said she'd seen Paoletti on June 2, riding in a dark-colored pickup truck. Police have ruled her out as a suspect in her disappearance, as she's elderly and in poor health.

    In addition to his dispute with his landlord, Paoletti has had some legal issues. Two local people, one of them a court clerk, had filed injunctions against him, allegeding he was stalking them. Both of the injunctions were later dismissed. His girlfriend thought he might have been armed, but neither she nor his parents, who live in New York, thought he was a danger to himself or anyone else.

    Authorities stated there was very little evidence as to Paoletti's fate. His father believes if he was attacked at home, it couldn't have been a random act; he stated Paoletti's trailer was in an out-of-the-way area that wasn't easy to reach, and it was unlikely anyone would have accidentally come upon it.

    His case remains unsolved.

    Interesting they held a memorial after only three years. I wonder if the family were tipped off to his fate?

    It sounds like he was in the middle of jumpstarting his vehicle when something happened. Based on the few details available, I see three theories:
    • Someone connected to the landlady. There was a dispute between them.
    • Someone connected to his PI work. He had several injunctions against him.
    • A random abduction (very unlikely).
