Authorities seek clues in case of missing elderly Orlando man

ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Orange County sheriff's deputies are asking for the public's assistance in locating 89-year-old Lloyd Williams, who has not been seen for three weeks.

"I'm hoping for the best but it's been a while, anybody would admit that," said Lancelot Williams, son of Lloyd Williams.

Williams traveled all the way to Orlando from Jamaica to look for his father. 

"I am feeling depressed, as anybody else will, because he's been away that long, that's strange, that's not like him," Williams said.

Investigators say Williams was last seen at his Orlando home where he lived alone, but his son says he was known by many in the community since he would often walk or ride his bike around the neighborhood and was very independent.

"He was here one day and the next day he wasn't here" said neighbor Hugo Kennedy.

Kennedy is the neighbor who contacted Williams' family when he realized something wasn't right when he hadn't seen Williams in a few weeks.

"I thought this is unusual, let me just check with the neighbor to see if they had seen him around, the picture started to come together at the point," said Kennedy.

To make matters worse, Williams says his neighbor found the sliding door to his dad' s home wide open when he went to check on him.

"It was in a terrible state, ransacked all over stuff lying all around," Williams said.

Williams and his family plan to post flyers around the community this week, hoping the public can help locate his dear father.

"If they hear anything if they know anything they can contact the nearest police station," Williams said.

Anyone with information should call the Orange County Sheriff's Office at: 407-836-HELP (4357).
