Missing elderly man found in Monroe County

June 22, 2011

A 77 year old Edgewater, Florida man who’d been reported missing and was the subject of a Silver Alert was found in the Lower Keys Tuesday.

Sheriff’s dispatchers received a call about a possible reckless driver at 5:30 p.m. Deputy Lissette Zuelch found the 2009 silver Mercury Milan near the 12 mile marker of the highway. The car was listed on the Silver Alert, which had been issued Tuesday by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. The driver was 77 year old William Truax.

When Deputy Zuelch and Sgt. Ronnie Roberts spoke with him, he was disoriented and agitated, unaware of his location and he told them he was on the way to a doctor’s appointment near his home.

Truax was transported to Lower Keys Hospital and his family was notified of his location so they could come pick him up.
