Silver Alert recovered in Monroe County

A Eustis, Florida man who’d been reported missing by family members on Sunday was recovered after he was spotted driving through Marathon Monday night.

The wife of 72 year old Kenneth Smith reported him missing to the Eustis Police Department Sunday. On Monday at 8:45 p.m. Deputy Monica Young spotted his black Chevrolet Corvette southbound at the 48 mile marker of the highway. She pulled him over on Sunshine Key, after confirming it was, indeed, his vehicle.

Deputy Young said Smith appeared t be calm, but disoriented. He said the last thing he remembered is being on Highway 441 and he wasn’t sure how he got to the Florida Keys.

Smith was taken to Fishermen’s Hospital and his family was notified he’d been found.
